ABRAMOWITZ-Jerusalem/Chicago #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

I want to thank all those who replied. Rabbi Abraham E. ABRAMOWITZ
(not my grandfather) was born in Jerusalem in 1892 and served as a
Conservative Rabbi in Albany Park, Chicago for some 30 years.

My interest in this gentleman was piqued for several reasons. One that
although, ABRAMOWITZ is a very common name among jews (see P.M. of
USSR in the past) the fact that my grandfather and Abraham were both
born in the old city of Jerusalem within 2-3 years of each other made
me think that there may be a connection.

Secondly: An acquaintance of our family mentioned to me that he
remembers as a child growing up in the Geula section of Jerusalem
(1940) here was a Kolel called North America which ABRAMOWITZ was
somehow involved and he thought it was my grandfather. To the best of
my knowledge it was not my grandfather and it may have been Abraham
ABRAMOWITZ (or another ABRAMOWITZ altogether).

Again, thanks to all who replied.

ABRAMOWITZ-born Jerusalem 1895 #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

Several years ago I posted a request regarding an ABRAMOWITZ who was
born in Jerusalem in (or about 1895), the year and place that my
grandfather, Chaim Yitzchak ABRAMOWITZ was born. >from the replies I
received was that he married a CHARLAP and eventually moved to the USA
to become a Rabbi there (possibly in Chicago-Conservative-during the
1930-1950).

Strangely enough I, growing up in Chicago >from 1948-1960 do not
remember my parents having known this Rabbi though the many
similarities. The same name as my mother's father, born about the same
time and place. And that my father was also a (non-practicing but
active) Conservative Rabbi in Chicago.

I had been in contact with some of Rabbi ABRAMOWITZ'S descendants back
then but since have lost contact with them. I'd be happy to renew the
contact and continue to explore if there is a family connection
between our two ABRAMOWITZ families.

Nufus Books of the Ottomans #sephardic

Michael Waas
 

Hi,

Does anyone have any experience with the nufus books (the books of
souls) of the Ottomans for Ottoman Palestine? I just came across them
from the Israeli State Archive. The information about them seems
extremely tantalizing.

I am primarily interested in them for my professional work in Israel
and secondarily for information about my family's relatives who lived
in the Yishuv during this period in Jerusalem. In particular, one of
my ancestors according to what has been found, lived in Jerusalem for
a period of 5 years >from 1879 to 1884 where he worked as an emissary
of the Beit El Yeshiva after taking leave of his position of Chief
Rabbi of Larissa. I would assume that I might find information about
him there if it exists.

Many thanks!

Best Regards,

Michael Waas

Looking for my uncle Ouri/Uri/Yuri KELNER #general

anafa-e@...
 

Dear Genners

I am looking for my maternal uncle. Ouri /Uri/Yuri KELNER born around
1930-1932 in Oushchilug/Uscilug then Poland now Ukraine (Vohlin/ Vohlyn)

He was an orphan, his parents, Rivka and Natan KELNER, died before WW2.
He has 3 sisters who live in Israel with families. The names of his sisters:
Tzila /Zila, b. 1922, Vitla b.1926, Dina 1928/9.

Ouri and his sisters were raised in different orphanages. His sisters in
Kovel and Oushchilug and he was raised in Horodishche/Horodiszce.

The last time he was seen was about 1940/41 in the 0rphanage in
Horodishche/Horodiszce. Since the end of WW2, my mother and my aunts
looked for him but with no results as for his fortune.
What happened to him? Could he survived and lives somewhere?
Did someone take care of him? (He was about 8-9 years old when the Germans
entered Russia.

I started to look for him with the help of a friend who speaks Russian and
knows how and where to look in Ukraine, also with no results so far.

I am still waiting for answers >from the archives in Luck, Moscow, Kiev,
Kovel, Rovno/Rivnee, Zitomir, and Red Cross Moscow.

What more can I do? How shall I continue?

Thank you for any help,
