Searching: BEN-ARI, Kibbutz Kinneret, Israel #general

Apexmarc@...
 

I need help contacting cousins in Israel with the last name of BEN-ARI. They
live in Kibbutz Kinneret. Father's name is Zev but I believe that he is ill.
Wife's name is Ruth. One of the sons name is Gilad but I an not sure if he
still lives in the Kibbutz. That is what I need to know and to see if they
would be willing to help with some information. They also have two daughers
but I only know maiden name, not married one.
If there is someone who can contact this family for me I would appreciate it.

Two can call Ukraine for the price of one. The catch? You- speak Ukrainian or Russian and translate for me. #hungary

Dennis Baer <dbaer@...>
 

Hello Munkacs researchers.

I just obtained 3 way calling and I have a long distance service where I
only pay 39 cents to call the Ukraine. If you speak Ukrainain or Russian and
can talk to a person at the Archives in Mukachevo and/or Uzhgorod for me and
relay my questions as well as yours, I will pay for the call to the Ukraine
and you only pay for the call to me in New York. I will make a 3 way call so
we can speak to an archivist in Mukachevo at the ZAHS. So you only pay for a
state to state Long Distance call to me.

Tell me if you want to do this and can speak Russian or Ukrainian.

Thank you.

Weinbergers from Kisvarda #hungary

Now, does anyone in this SIG
have Spitzer or Weinberger relatives >from there or Kisvarda? That is the
question!
The following data are >from this book: Nezo Istvan, A kisvardai zsidok tortenete.
Nyiregyhaza 1998.

The first rabbi of Kisvarda was Abraham Izsak Weinberger, after Kisvarda
seceded >from Nagykallo in 1844. He was born in Poland, in Dukla in 1796, and
became the rabbi of Galgoc (now Hohlovec in Slovakia) when he was 21, and was
the leader of the community for 14 years. He was a well-known rabbi of his time:
he founded a bet hamidrash, a Yeshiva and a library to strengthen religous
observance in Kisvarda. During his tenure, in 1850, keeping of metrical records
started. He died in 1884. After his death two of his books were published:

Pney Yitchak 1892 (his responsa) and Mallel leAvraham 1913 (aggada).
(pp.31-32.)

In 1929 the Kisvarda Neolog Jewish Community seceded >from the Kisvarda
Orthodox Community, and Zsigmond Weinberger was a member of the steering
committee (valasztmanyi tag). (p.39)

One of the two largest food-shops in Kisvarda was owned by a Weinberger (p.61).

The owner and the editor of the local daily -Kisvardai Lapok- was Lipot Vadasz
(Weinberger). (p.63) His father was Bernath Weinberger (1837-1904) was a
respected Kisvarda trader. Lipot was born on July 2, 1861. He changed his
name to Vadasz in 1882. He studied law in Budapest. He opened a legal office in
Kisvarda, and became one of the most sought after lawyer in Szabolcs county.
He founded a financial cooperative, was the president of the association of local
industrialists, member of the local govt. In 1910 he was elected into the
Hungarian Parliament, he became a advisor of Prime Minister Istvan Tisza, and in
1913 was appointed as the State Secretary of the Ministry of Justice. He died in
Budapest on August 29, 1924. (pp. 64-65)

Jozsef Weinberger was a member of the steering committee of the Bikkur Choli
Association in 1907. (p.82.)

Herman Weinberger private teacher 26 years old (in the 1880s) born in
Nagytarkany, Zemplen county. (p.95)

Izsak Weinberger was the Jewish religious instructor of the Kisvarda public
elementary school (kozsegi elemi iskola) in 1874. (p.97.)

Ignac Weinberger was a member of the Kisvarda Board of Education
(iskolaszek). (p.98.)

Bernath Weinberger was in leather business. (p.115).

Re: Witnesses at Jewish Weddings in the UK #general

MBernet@...
 

In a message dated 99-01-17 18:36:44 EST, doreenjgn@AOL.COM writes:

<<Sometimes the witnesses were Synagogue officials.>>

I seem to recall two sets of witnesses at my wedding in 1952 in the Spanish
and Portuguese Synagogue in Maida Vale. One set signed the ketuba in Hebrew
and one set the marriage register or certificate in English (perhaps this was
just one signature by the authorized Secretary for Marriages). I believe the
signatories to the ketuba were the two officiants; though there were many
shomrei shabbat in my side of the family, I doubt the Mahamad would have
accepted them as fully observant since they were Tedescos (Ashkenazim)--I had
great difficulty in the first instance persuading them to let me marry a
Sefardi wife in the synagogue of her choice, and our first choice, Bevis
Marks, was rejected out of hand.

By contrast, in my recent Conservative wedding in the USA, we were told by our
rabbi that halakhically there was much doubt about family members signing a
ketuba as witnesses (because they might be deemed partisan if the ketuba were
ever disputed) and we were asked to provide two non-related shomrei shabbat.
I believe this wedding will turn out to be more successful than the earlier
one. For secular witnesses for the marriage certificate, we chose two non-
Jewish guests, to give them a sense of participation.,
