Latvia.So, Ibeg

Re: Need translation help #hungary

MGS18@...
 

"Farewell to Sabbath" is sung in Hebrew by Marta Sebestyen and featured
on "The Lost Jewish Music of Transylvania" by the group Musikas. She is
singing the first five lines of a hebrew "piyyut" (religious poem) titled
"Adir Ayom V'Nora", one of several songs optionally recited following
Havdalah (the ritual prayer which marks the conclusion of the Sabbath).

The full text of the poem can be found in some Orthodox prayer books
immediately following the Havdalah service in a section called "Zemirot
Motzei Shabbat" ("post Sabbath songs").
My siddur doesn't have English translation, but the poem addresses the
Mighty and Awesome nature of G-d and is a supplication for guidance,
fortitude and salvation.

"The Encyclopedia of Jewish Prayer" by Macy Nulman (Jason Aronson Press)
contains this reference: "ADDIR AYOM VENORA-An alphabetical poem recited
at the outgoing of the Sabbath. The third line in every stanza commences
with G-d's name in a scriptural phrase."

Unfortunately nothing is mentioned about the poem's author or origins.

the Memorial Day Crash #hungary

Carol Skydell <skydell@...>
 

Dear H-Siggers

Despite the crash JewishGen suffered at the very beginning of
the Memorial Day weekend, specifically Friday evening May 28th,
we are slowly coming back to normal as our systems are being
restored. Unfortunately some of them had to be handled
individually by the dedicated behind the scenes folks, Susan
King, Michael Tobias, Warren Blatt, and Iris Folkson who were up
most of the night when the server finally came back to life.

Since I know diddly about the technical aspects of JewishGen, I
have assigned myself the role of helping in another way....and
this is it.

Because this happened over a holiday and it required the
technicians at our ISP to be working practically around the
clock, the bill for their services will be staggering. We are
volunteers....they are not. We are going to need some financial
assistance >from each and every one of you as best you can
afford. As you know, every one of our search engines, every
program and every project is provided as a public service by
JewishGen to anyone, anywhere in the world. We ask nothing more
than your voluntary contribution (tax deductible in the U.S.) as
your way of recognizing and helping to support all the services
we are providing.
Some of you have been quite generous in the past, but some of
you have not yet taken this important step to show that you
care, that you appreciate what is being offered as a free
service, and that you want to show your committment to this effort.

The JewishGen-erosity secure credit card site
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/ is up and
running....I know, I've just been there and joined the JewishGen
1K club. To those of you out there who can afford it...why not
join me <grin> And to those of you who cannot handle a 1K
contribution, so be it...we are deeply grateful for whatever
amount you feel you can contribute.

If you're uncomfortable, even with a secure credit card server,
you can mail your check to:
JewishGen, Inc. 12 Greenway Plaza Suite 1100, Houston, TX
77046 and please let us know if we may list you as a supporter.

Many thanks for your hoped-for financial support.

JewishGen server error being reported #galicia

Carol Skydell <skydell@...>
 

To Galitzianers

Folks, apparently many of you have not updated your bookmarks
for JewishGen in a very long time. It's apparent to us since
well over a year ago we retired www1.jewishgen.org and merged it
with www.jewishgen.org. We just maintained a pointer to it
should any of you were using an old bookmark.

When we got the server back on line Sunday night... we did *not*
revitalize the www1.jewishgen.org domain name.

With the Memorial Day "cleanout"...we've cleaned up <grin> and
are only restoring current material. You will *all need to
start back at the JewishGen home page* http://www.jewishgen.org
and revise your bookmarks throughout the current site.

If you are receiving server errors, first check and make sure
you are hitting www.jewishgen.org and not www1.jewishgen.org.
Only after you have verified that you are at the right address
should you notify us of any problems. We have checked and
verified 90% of the site and we know it works.

MODERATOR NOTE: Thanks, Carol, for keeping us informed, and thanks to
the JewishGen staff for working so hard on our behalf. We are very
grateful to all of you! Keep up the good work!

Re: New LDS Website - Need Belarus Feedback #belarus

Mpcamitta@...
 

To Carol, and others who might be interested:
Thank you for your posting, in which you referred to my LDS search. I went
back (early this morning) and looked for BASHEINS under International
Genealogical Index and Ancestral File. Mine are listed in both, but I saw no
section entitled "sealed to the church." Any suggestions about where to look
for that category? There are no microfilm numbers for my BASHEINS either,
which are listed, if they exist, with "submitter" information. Am I to assume
that the BASHEIN information was submitted by a relation who was a Church
member, and that the rest were posthumously converted to the Church of the
LDS? There is a reference to volume number, but whose volume, I am
wondering? Since I looked for any other family name that I could think of,
and found nothing at all, and then did the same for my husband, with no luck
either, I wonder what the nature of their submissions has been. I have a
suspicion that those listed in either file have converted, or have been
converted posthumously, or maybe were "identified" by a church member as
relations.
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
Sincerely,

Miriam Camitta
