seashells with gravestone-like inscriptions #lithuania

Renee Steinig
 

My friend has two unusual heirlooms: seashells that are inscribed, in
raised lettering, with wording you'd see on a Jewish gravestone. One
shell memorializes Nachman ben Shmaryahu Elchanan, who died in 1904
(27 Adar 5664); the other is for Yente bat Yosef who died in 1909 (19
Nisan 5669). Above the names on each shell are words >from Lamentations
16:1 "Al eileh ani bochiya...."

My friend's late husband's grandparents were Morris (Moshe David)
Diamond and Yetta (Itke) nee Swidler, both born c. 1885. Morris
immigrated to the United States c. 1906, probably >from Vilna; Yetta
arrived >from Dunilovichi in 1907. They lived briefly in New York City,
then settled in the Boston area. Morris's father (Nachman) and Yetta's
mother (Yente) may well be the people who were memorialized on the
shells but without knowing fathers' names, we can't be sure.

Has anyone heard of such shells -- or of this family?

Thanks.

Hi everybody,

You may remember a while ago I posted a message that Jewish cemetery in town of Reni
(Bessarabia, now-Odessa Obl.) was burned out and it was not clear >from the press message what
damage was it for the tombstones.

Well, now, we know. Our member who was at this cemetery after the fire sent me an email.
According to him, the vegetation was burned out, but no visible damage to the stones! Now, when
all the bushes are gone, the access to the graves are much easier, and you can get to every
tombstone and hopefully read the inscription.

I hope that our photographer will be at the cemetery this month and photograph all the tombstones......

Yizkor Book Project, September 2018 #ciechanow #poland

Lance Ackerfeld <lance.ackerfeld@...>
 

Shalom,

Without a doubt, September was definitely a record month for the Yizkor
Book Project. An important element behind this notable accomplishment,
is the people who prepare the web pages - Max Heffler and Jason
Hallgarten, who after their normal work day and other life activities
regularly manage to find some spare time to prepare and update a
multitude of pages each month. For their persistence and dedication, we
are truly indebted.

And if we are talking about dedication, I wish to note Lukasz Biedka's
coordination of the Przemysl Yizkor book over many years, which in this
past month bore fruit - the complete translation of this Yizkor book. I
send out my grateful thanks to Lukasz, who with the close collaboration
with professional translator, Jerrold Landau, together brought about
this lofty achievement.

At last count, we had 152 books that have been completely translated
within the Yizkor Book Project or include English books that were
generously donated to our project. Each month, the number in this list
continues to grow and I am certain that coming months will see more and
more of these projects completed. As always, if you are able to
financially support any of our ongoing translation projects to help us
realize our goals, bringing benefit to many, please see the link to our
JewishGen-erosity page at the end of this report.

Last month, we also saw the addition of another book published through
the auspices of the Yizkor Books in Print Project. The book I am
referring to is the "Memorial Book of Radzivilov" which is a translation
of the Yizkor book for the community of Radyvyliv, Ukraine. The talented
people in this project continue to devote time, after their usual life
commitments, to thoughtfully and carefully prepare the hard copy
versions of books that we have completely translated into English and we
do owe them our grateful thanks. For information about the books
available for purchase, please see the link at the end of this report.

And now for the additions and updates are what we've carried out during
September:

your research and communicate with others.

the instructor. Students should have 8-10 hours per week to read the
lessons, search online and interact with the instructor. To meet the
needs of international students this course is open 24/7.
