I have one candlestick that is similar, not quite the same.  It is 7-1/2 inches tall.  I've always assumed that it was my mother's and bought in the US.  It could be that it was my grandmother's.  She was from Minsk.

Great news for Radom researchers #poland

Great news for Radom researchers

 

The first year of Radom ID card applications (1934) with photos is now searchable on the JRI-Poland database at https://jri-poland.org/

 

This is a unique project warranting special attention by JRI-Poland for which I and all Radom researchers express their thanks.

 

While there are surviving ID requests from 1929 to 1934 in the Radom PSA collection, a decision was made to fast track 1934, the only complete year currently available with online scans, in order to put the wheels in motion to obtain and extract the remaining years.

Municipality issued identity booklets (ID Cards), differentiated from passports used for foreign travel, were available in Poland from 1928. The request forms for these ID’s include critical vital data of date and place of birth, parentage and occupation, as well as attached photos. While the pre-requisite for a Radom ID Card was residence in the city, nearly one-third of the applicants in 1934 were born in other towns.

  

The full project description is found here.

 

Special thanks to Susan Weinberg, Radom Kehlilalink Webmaster with whom I collaborated to identify and extract the vital details from the Jewish documents in this collection. We both eagerly await the next year of scans.

In case you need the secular date of death:

The 21st of Shvat of the year 5711 began at sunset on January 27th, 1951, and ended at sunset on the 28th.

In case you are not aware, jewishgen has a wonderful feature called "ViewMate", where you can post images and ask for help with translation.  One of the categories is 'Translation -- Tombstone".   The entry page, with full instructions, can be found here:  https://www.jewishgen.org/ViewMate/

His date of death on his tombstone is 12 Teves 5597 (=December 20 1836).

Your first source is definitely a mistake, as it says the correct Hebrew date.

Re: Where candlesticks are from #general

I have the same question about almost identical candlesticks that belonged to my grandmother. They are solid brass (the 4 inch base screws off) and There are no maker's or any other identifiyin marks on the candlesticks. I saw a matching pair (but only half the size) in the Polin Museum in Warsaw.
My grandmother was born in Minsk in 1884. She was the only daughter. Her mother died young, and she immigrated to the States in 1908, where she married in 1910, and died in 1922.  I can think of 4 possibilities
1 - she inherited them from her mother and brought them with her to the States. (This is the one that I want to believe...)
2 - she received them as a wedding present in the States
3 - she bought them new in the States when she married
4 - she bought them used in the States.

Whatever is the real source, they were definitely produced before 1922.

They are handed down to a female descendent, and now belong to her great granddaughter - her daughter's daughter's daughter.

I'd love to learn the early history of these candlesticks.

I have one candlestick that looks just like yours. Mine is only 4.5 inches tall. My great-grandmother Hudia Nemeth brought it to this country from the Stanislawow area. She arrived here in 1921. I’ve always wondered why there is just one, not two. Many explanations are possible. My great-grandmother used it on Shabbat when she stayed with my mother’s family.

I once attended a session on antiques and the expert said that candlesticks that sit on a footed platform, like yours and mine, are always made in Europe.

Looking to trace great grandparents from Lithuania. #lithuania #records

aineumann@...
 

My grandparents, Zalmen Joseph Ha-Levi Shveyloch and Sheina Rocha Borr lived in Giedraiciai.  I think they may come from Moletai.  I am looking for records of birth, marriage and death.  I think Zalmen lived from about 1861 until about 1920.  Sheina Rocha was born in about 1856.  I have heard she lived into her 90's and died in a Shoah massacre but I can find no records.

Are there any manufacturer marks on the bottom?  Those can indicate the mfr (there are several websites which have info on mfr marks), which in turn, could answer your question.

Re: Marriage in London #unitedkingdom #general

Elynn Boss - The Hebrew word for "son of" is בן / ben.

Often, on a grave stone, this is rendered as an abbreviation ב"ר bet apostrophe resh which stands for ben reb /son of Mr. . This is no doubt the source of your error in using the word "bar" in your reply when mentioning Emanuel's Hebrew name.

Bar / בר is actually the Aramaic word for son of -  but rarely used today in a contemporary name for this.  This is used in the word bar-mitzva (a boy reaches 13 years old - lit. "son of commandment"), and there was Simon Bar-Kochba (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_bar_Kokhba), who was a Jewish general in the period of the Tannaim (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tannaim), and there are a few other similar examples.

I suppose I don't know that this was her only husband; she could have remarried.

Re: Hebrew translation on gravestone #translation

Odeda Zlotnick
 

The dots are simply there instead of apostrophes when a letter is written instead of a full word or to signify a number.  Nothing mysterious, nothing mystical, and actually quite common.
ר' = רב
נפ' = נפטרה
כ'א' = 21

You could ask why a real apostrophe after the year -- I don't know.  In modern Hebrew, a double quote is often used instead of an apostrophe, hence תשי"א.  The apostrophe on the stone is in the wrong place.

Re: Hebrew translation on gravestone #translation

Dubin, David M. MD
 

Shaindee daughter of mr Chaim Baruch
died 21 Shevat (5)711

four letters have dots over them. Bear with me. 
The Hebrew year was 5711, but the thousands place is usually omitted as it is here. Hebrew numbers take letters of the alphabet (the first ten letters signify 1-10, the next nine letters signify the tens from 20-100, and the last three letters signify 200, 300 and 400). Numbers 500 and up require several of the “hundreds letters”, so that 700 is written 400-300, and 900 is 400-400-100.
the dotted letters on this stone add up to 311, knocking off the thousands place and the first of the “hundreds letters” (400), leaving 311.  There must be a mystical reason for such things, as it is commonly done, but I don’t know the reason.

I take it back. The four dotted letters add up to 301. I’m stumped.
