Book: Bridging Two Worlds #general

Eguralnick@...
 

Does anyone have a copy of BRIDGING TWO WORLDS by Sol Landau? It is about
Rabbi Ezekiel Landau 1888-1965, and I saw it mentioned in a very old post in
the discussion group archives. I am researching Rabbi Eleazar FLECKELES of
Prague, one of Rabbi Landau's students, and am wondering if there is any
mention of Rabbi Fleckeles in that book.

Thank you,

Death Certificate from Israel #general

Adelle Gloger
 

Hi, all,
Around 1955 my maternal grandmother fulfilled her life-long dream to go to
Eretz Yisroel and "shtarb". She did indeed die there in July 1958 at the age of
85 years. I have in my posession a document entitled " Report of the death of
an American Citizen" >from the Department of State, Foreign Service of The
United States of America.
She died in Tel Aviv and is buried there. This document lists the
Registration of Death number___ "issued by the Israeli Ministry of Interior at
Tel Aviv"

My question is this: What is the address in Israel to contact to get a copy
of the actual death certificate?

I have looked in the JewishGen info files and could not find the
information. Also, none of the online telephone directories are in English.

Thanks in advance for your assistance,

In reference to the recent Tarnobrzeg / Dzikow thread, they are one kilometre

My father's parents are buried at Mt. Zion Cemetery in Maspeth, Queens in a

Street on the lower east side. They arrived here with four children,
William, Gussie, Lillian, and Benjamin and had five more children in New
York City. They were Samuel, Louis, Sarah (Sally), Etta, and Leo.

William (Willy) Idson, born May 1880, married Fannie Katzenellenbogern
about 1901 in NYC.
Gussie Idson born Apr. 1882
Lillian (Lilly) Idson, born Jan. 1884, married Joe Sinberg about 1906 in NYC.

Dear People,

Elsa Drezner asked about a book printed in Paris in 1978, which she
thought was called "Memories of My Shtetl," concerning Dzikow-Tarnobrzeg.
After calling my local bookstores, I did an online search at various used
bookstores, especially those specializing in Judaica for such a book, but
turned up only a book of memories of a life in Lithuanian shtetl.

However, in Appendix ll of ">from a Ruined Garden," (1998 Edition), YIVO
librarian Zachary Baker lists a Yizkor book, written in Hebrew and Yiddish
called "Kehilat Tarnobrzeg-Dzikow (Galicia ha-ma-aravit) [The Community of
Tarnbrez-Dzikow (Western Galicia)]. Ed Yaakov Yehoshua Fleishder. Tel Aviv:
Tarnobrzeg-Dzikow Society, 1973, 379 pp., illus.

Also, checking through the listings in that extraordinary and beautifully
organized Family Finder resource published by the Gesher Galicia Society, I
saw that many members of that Society are interested in Tarnbrzeg and two are
listed as interested in Dzikow. (I don't know whether they are two separate
shtetls, close together, or just one shtetl. If I get permission >from the
Society to copy the names and email and regular addresses I will send them to
Ms. Drezner. Ms. Drezner might want to write to them to learn what research
they have done. Otherwise, she herself should write to the Chairperson,

You probably misinterpreted some letters, f.i. I guess that the daled on
the second line is rather a 'haf sofit' and sometimes you mixed 'tet' and=

'tav'.
