Yiddish Theatre and Vadeville #YiddishTheatre call for information #yiddish

Pnina Rosenberg <danielro@...>
 

Dear colleagues,
I am doing a post-doctorat research on the subject " Yiddish Culture in
French Zone Occupied Camps : Clandestine Press, Theater, Literature". My
research embraces the Yiddish cultural activities in the major camps in the
occupied zone - Beaune-la-Rolande, Pithiviers, Compiege and Drancy.

I am looking for the original version ( I have the French translation done
by David Diamant) of a play written in Beaune-la-Rolande camp Di Reform
written by Moishe Kinman (artist in the inter-war Yiddish Parisian theater
PIAT). I am also looking for further material : plays written and
performed, clandestine press and literary material (poetry, prose,
diaries) done in the above mentioned camps.
It may be of interst to you to know that part of my research deals with
Yiddish life in interwar Paris: press, authors, publishing houses and
theater.

Any assistice will be of utmost importance and will be credited.

Many thanks for your cooperation

months after that. The most celebrated holiday in our family has always
been Thanksgiving Day. We are blessed to still have our mother with us and
we retell the story every year.

I'm not sure that her parents were linguists (or genealogists) enough to
make that "gift"ed connection. I'd guess the connection with Daniel is
again through the initial. The Chiene-Jechiel connection may reflect the
common shortening of the Jechiel name to just Chiel.
=I would like to add that just like Matthew is a name that derives >from the
Greek version of the Hebrew name Matityahu, Gift of God. Dora, which
relates to the Greek word for gift, evolves to the Hebrew word "doron"
which is gift... Doron is used also as Hebrew name.

Dear Genners,

The Jewish Genealogical Societies of Montreal and Ottawa
are proud to alert fellow researchers to the following
article on page 3 of the Canadian Jewish News -
August 21, 2003, 23 Av, 5763 edition:

"Canadian naturalization records for 1915-32 now online"

An Internet version of the article can be seen at:

http://www.cjnews.com/viewarticle.asp?id=1395

It is estimated that approximately 40% of Canadian naturalizations
during this period were for Jewish individuals.

Fw: RUTENBERG's ADDRESS #poland

Carlos Pinkus <cpinkus@...>
 

Two weeks ago I sent you this Email and I couldn't get the information I
was searching, may be it was because many Bialystoker Genealogists were
in Washington by that time. I think that now they are back home, then I
send it again.

Thank you for your attention,

----- Original Message -----=

Next month I'll be in Bialystok, I have a large family tree, begining in
1750 and I'm trying to put together the name, birthday, adress and
photos of the members of my family. They lived in Bialystok and I don't
know theirs address to complete the data and to photography the house
were they lived.

If somebody can inform me the RUTENBERG's address in Bialystok I'll feel grateful.

My grandparents were:

MOISHE JAIM RUTENBERG 1872-1943 and
SARA BOTCHKOVSKY 1873-1952

My mother, aunts and uncles were:

SHLOIM RUTENBERG 1897-1977
TSALE RUTENBERG 1900-1969
RIVKA RUTENBERG 1904-1988
CHANA RUTENBERG 1905-2000

Rabbinic Genealogy SIG #Rabbinic Translation of passage from Meorei Galicia #rabbinic

Logan J. Kleinwaks <kleinwks@...>
 

Dear RavSIGgers,

I cannot read Hebrew, but I was able to find the passage in Rabbi
Wunder's Meorei Galicia that concerns a relative (perhaps a direct
ancestor) of mine. It is only a few sentences long, but I am
hopeful that it contains important genealogical information. Would
any of you be so kind as to translate this passage >from Hebrew to
English for me, if I provide you with a scan? Please reply
privately.

Thank you very much.

Best regards,

Logan Kleinwaks

JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Leonard LEVINE, World War II Veteran #general

Vivian308@...
 

It has been a year since I posted my search for Leonard LEVINE. I have
had no luck in locating him or any of his family, if any exists. I
submitted a notice to "Navy Times" magazine but never received any replies.

Leonard was stationed in Honolulu, Hawaii, in 1945. I have a photograph
of him wearing the uniform of an enlisted man, and he looks about 20 years
old.
Leonard would have had a relative, probably an uncle, named Jacob LEVIN,
living in Chicago.

If this sounds at all familiar to anyone, please contact me.

Thank you very much.
