Re: Book - list of Jewish military died 1ast WW #germany

theresakoenigsknecht@...
 

I apologize, I thought I replied to this threat already but am learning how to use this forum. 
Does anyone know if there are lists of Jewish veterans that served and not injuries or fatalities? Or is anyone familiar with the The Reich Federation of Jewish Front-Line Soldiers (Reichsbund jüdischer Frontsoldaten, RJF) and whether or not they have indexed accessible archives? 

Trying to find record of service for a someone from Grossenhain near Dresden. 
Many thanks in advance for suggestions or experiences you've had finding records that might be related.

Re: Max Bruch. Who wrote the music for Kol Nidre was NOT Jewish #general

Larry Gaum
 

Let me clarify so that there is no confusion.
Yes, Max Bruch wrote his classical piece Kol Nidre which was based on the Aramaic/Hebrew liturgical prayer Kol Nidre and it’s melody.
However, it was based on the Ashkenazic version of the Kol Nidre, not the Sephardic.
Bruch took the music and adapted it for musical instruments. He created a written musical score.
Thanks to all who contributed to the discussion, in the group and privately.

The Kol Nidre prayer, initially written in Aramaic was chanted centuries ago. It was not sung with the melody we are familiar with today in Ashkenazic synagogues. Sephardic synagogue chanting is completely different.

This is a certificate issued by the Lwów midwifery school, dated July 15, 1882; stating that Mrs. Sara Goldfatb, born Arzt, age 50, from Jarosław, wife of a tinsmith, attended the Lwów midwifery school in the school year 1881/2 and has passed exams with safisfactory grades. Her conduct was appropriate.

The Tuchyn revision records are pretty good. They have almost 3,500 records in them. I was able to find my family, and siblings etc through them. I would do a search on JewishGen just using the town name and Ukrain and look through the entirety of it. Sometimes spellings can change enough that you don't pick it up when you put in the name, but you find the hominin  looking at the raw data.

The other thing I would do is go to Family Search - which is the mormon site and look at the church records for Tuchyn that haven't been indexed. Sometimes the church records include Jewish families. But more importantly, if he's not Jewish but from there, his family might be in there. 

Best of luck.

Hello Larry,

You can take it easy.... Max Bruch only composed a classical work for Cello based on the much older Ashkenazi Kol Nidrei melody.

Where the original Ashkenazi melody actually originated from is a very sticky subject and I don't think there's any consensus.

Bruch didn't write the music for Kol Nidre. He wrote a piece of classical music based on the traditional music for Kol Nidre.

Careful: If word gets around that the song White Christmas was written by a Jew (son of a cantor, no less) and that at least one of the performers who sang the song in the finale of the film was also Jewish, there could be all sorts of confusion. Never mind Felix Mendelssohn!  😉

I think you may have got some garbled information...
Max Bruch composed his Adagio on 2 Hebrew Melodies for Cello and Orchestra with Harp based  Kol Nidrei.  No way he wrote the music "for" Kol Nidrei.  The tune was sung in Ashkenazi communities centuries before Max Bruch was born.

For those who'd like to hear it, here's a link to Bruch's composition as played by Mischa Maisky

Re: Max Bruch. Who wrote the music for Kol Nidre was NOT Jewish #general

As a cellist, your inquiry stood out for me.  I've never seen any information about any Jewish ancestors.  Here's what the ClassicFM website has to say:
Kol Nidrei, his warm and richly evocative work for cello and orchestra, was one of the first pieces he set about composing when he took up his post as Principal Conductor of the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. It was composed specifically for Liverpool’s Jewish community, taking as its inspiration two traditional Hebrew melodies. The first, heard at the outset, originates from the traditional Jewish service on the night of Yom Kippur; the second is an extract from a musical setting of the Byron poem ‘Those that Wept on Babel’s stream’.
A common misconception about Bruch is that he was a Jewish composer. He was in fact a Protestant Christian – but he was greatly inspired by Old Testament stories and by his own modern-day friendships with a number of prominent Jewish musicians.

Max Bruch. Who wrote the music for Kol Nidre was NOT Jewish #general

Larry Gaum
 

I have been shocked by many events over the many years of my life but nothing equals the one I felt when I discovery that Max Bruch, who wrote the music for the Kol Nidre, the most sacred of Jewish prayers, was not Jewish.
He was in fact Protestant, and born in Germany.
On many occasions, the story goes, he vehemently denied he was Jewish and in some reports was said to have uttered statements that were considered to be anti semitic.
After I regained my composure, I looked further into his name. Nothing sounder more Jewish than BRUCH, as In Baruch or Brochas.
My question to my fellow readers is:
Do you think that Bruch or his ancestors were Jewish at one time. This wouldn’t surprise me as we have see this happen before.
When I attend the next Arev Yom Kippur , I might feel a bit different. Maybe not. But I won’t be in the same frame of mind.
Best to all

Searching for Schwiff family in Israel #israel

katgo@...
 

Looking for descendants of Leon, Jacob, or Wolf Schwiff from Poland, who emigrated to Palestine around 1900. One of these people had either home or office on Lilienblum Street in Tel Aviv in 1920. They were nephews of my great-great grandparents from Montreal (Gershon & Judith Shapira), who made Aliyah in 1913.
