Itamar (Shabbos) FRIEDMAN, d. 1930s #general

Yitzchak Weisberg
 

I have been told that my late grandfather, Martin FRIEDMAN, was related to Dr.
Itamar (Isamar) FRIEDMAN. I'm looking for information that will help me determine
how they were related. Dr. Friedman lived in New York City and died in the 1930s,
possibly the 1940s. He was known as Shabbos Friedman. His parents were Chaim
Menachem and Malka (NEUHAUSER) Friedman. Dr. Friedman had a sister whose married
name was HOROWITZ, >from the Horowitz-Margareten matza company. I'm looking for more
information on Dr. Friedman's father's siblings and his father's father's siblings,
so that I may be able to link him with my family.
Thank you.

Re: Jewish service men during the war #unitedkingdom

BP Bergman <bergville@...>
 

Remembering what my late father said about this, I don't think there was any
general formal dispensation given, at least to those serving in Italy/North
Africa. As with any group of Jews, some took a pragmatic view and, in hard
times, ate what was available, whilst others continued to keep a semblance
of Kashrut by voluntarily following a non-meat diet - albeit that often
meant very meagre rations indeed. However I do remember hearing of one
Jewish prisoner of war in the Far East who, if I remember rightly, had to
eat a forbidden foodstuff to survive. After the war, he was so embarrassed
to have done so that he would never enter a synagogue again. My
understanding of Jewish law however is that the preservation of life is
all-important and that if the eating of non-kosher or forbidden food is
necessary in order to save life, then one is not just permitted but in fact
obliged to eat the non-kosher food. In that case, no doubt if there was a
rabbi close by, he would have given a dispensation but probably many Jewish
personnel overseas did not have access to a rabbi. What was feasible in the
UK (at Bletchley Park) would have been very different >from what was feasible
for troops overseas or in PoW camps.

Incidentally the Armed Forces now provide kosher ration packs, on request,
for soldiers serving on operations overseas. Halal and vegetarian rations
are also available.

Hello

I'm wondering about an entry >from the UK 1911 census. for my great
grandparents, Marks and Leah Spielman and their seven children, including
two daughters both named Annie (!). Thinking it was a mistake on the
transcript, I checked the original census entry but there it was again, two
daughters with the same given name, a 25 five year old Annie listed as being
married (but listed with her maiden name Spielman)for 7 years and a 13 year
old Annie. Any explanations?

Thanks in advance

Paterson--new home of The Jewish Historical Society of North Jersey #austria-czech

Roni S. Liebowitz
 

Many of our ancestors settled in Paterson and the
surrounding area in Northern New Jersey when they left
Poland and other Eastern European countries. A large number
worked in the silk mills, had families, and built their
lives there.

The keeper of the vast collection of artifacts, photographs,
documents, paintings, and memorabilia for the past 20 years
is Jerry Nathans, one of the founders and the President of
the Jewish Historical Society of North Jersey. In its prime,
the society sponsored exhibits, presentations, and other
programs about Jewish lives in the area. Oral histories and
photographs were collected, and the society published
newsletters and the history of Paterson. Originally housed
at the YM-YWHA in Wayne,NJ, it ran out of space and had to
be stored in 300 boxes in various locations. Most recently,
the boxes were kept stored away at William Paterson
University, unavailable to the public. Gone was a place for
people to donate those family treasures that told the
histories of their ancestors. Closed was public access to
see these artifacts and documents.

Little progress was made for ten years. Jerry Nathans worked
ceaselessly following every lead to find a suitable and
affordable home for the collection, one that would be
accessible to the public. When I met with Jerry Nathans in
November 2008, he was still looking for a place for this
collection, one that he insisted had to be in the area. His
persistence finally paid off. In late March, an agreement
was reached with the Barnert Medical Arts Complex in
Paterson, NJ. In April, Jerry Nathans, who is 81 years
young, began moving all these boxes to the new facility.

Volunteers are now unpacking and cataloging 100 years of
history. The Society can be reached at: jhsnnj@...

Burgenland article in German - tombstone inscriptions and genealogical links. #austria-czech

I never know what people already know or do not know - so here is an

Compact Memory: http://www.compactmemory.de/

Jahrbuch der Judisch-Literarischen Gesellschaft Jahrgang 1927

Inschriften und Urkunden aus den Siebengemeinden
Shewa Kehilloth by L Moses, Wien
p 349 in the pdf

There are many interesting ancient genealogical links to Copenhagen Frankfurt
Glogau Holleschau Nikolsburg Prague Vienna etc etc - it is best
to scan through the article and see if you find any name/places of interest.

I note that on p367 {pdf} you find a link to the SCHEY family of Vienna.
I think there must be a sequel to the article - I have yet to find it, but I have
not looked that hard.

Jewish Mountain Home (Ka'zoo) Cemetery Search #austria-czech

Judith Berlowitz <judigenie@...>
 

Dear SIG'gers,
One of my most stubborn brick walls has been the date of death and burial location
of my gggrandfather, Philip FRESCHL, born in Revnice in 1816. His wife, Karoline
LEDERER (d. 1887) , and son, Gustav (d. 1884) , are buried in the Jewish Mountain
Home Cemetery in Kalamazoo. Listed with them is a third grave, also ascribed to
Gustave. Just this morning I finally found, on Kalamazoogenealogy.org, a
description of the third grave, with the interment date of 1/1/1888. I'm thinking
this must be Philip's grave, sans marker. I have been in touch with the very
helpful manager of Temple B'nai Israel's section of the cemetery, Jacob Weintraub,
and his conclusion is: "given the age of the cemetery and stones, I don't think
there is any way for me to tell, and I don't think we would have any Temple
records to help." So now I'd like to ask if there is anyone out there willing
to visit the cemetery, go to the site, Blk:Jew A Sec:46 Lot:3, and assess it for
a possible fallen, damaged, or missing marker. A photograph of the site would be
very helpful. I already have photos of Karoline's and Gustave's graves, and a
partial one of the monument column.
