Pechera in the Ukraine #general

Tzila@...
 

I wonder whether any of you are related to the Rabinowitzes of Pechera in the
Ukraine. My grandfather, Azriel RABINOWITZ, was chief rabbi of that shtetl
(?) in the late 1800s and early 1900s- died in 1918. My mother, Esther
RABINOWITZ, left the Ukraine and made Aliya to Palestine in 1919.

Any relatives out there?

RABINOWITZ - Help is needed #general

Ofer Cohen <oferco@...>
 

Dear Genners,

My pgm was Siomka (Sima) nee Rabinovitz. Her father, Moshe, immigrated with
his (second?) wife and other children to US, probably around 1913. Sima
stayed with her husband, Yosef Kagan, and first son in Delyatichi, which is
a small village some 20 km >from Nowogrudok. Her brother, Avrem'l "der
geiler" ("the red-hair") Rabinowitz stayed in the nearby shtetl Lubcha.
Till now I could find no clue to the origin of Moshe Rabinovitz. Is this
name known to you >from your family research?

Best Regards

KAGAN - help is needed #general

Ofer Cohen <oferco@...>
 

Genners,
I am searchin for information on my pgf, Yosef Kagan (Cohen?).
His parents names were Shabtai (Shepsl) and Pesia Kagan. His elder sun, my
late uncle Dov (Ber), was born in 1911, hence I assume Yosef was born
around 1890.
He and my pgm, Sima, lived in Delyatichi, near Lubtch, in the uyezd of
Novogrudok, Belarus, at least >from 1911 until they were murdered in the
Holocaust with their 4 younger children.

Are these details familiar to anyone? I am seeking for any possible clue.

Regards
Ofer Cohen

Dear Group;
This letter, which my father sent me, has nothing to do with geneology,
but is well worth remembering, especially at this time.
David Edelman, San Francisco.

This wonderful article was written in 1899, when anti-Semitism was
widespread in the US. Large companies did not hire Jewish people. People
like Ford and Edison expressed their feelings openly.


Written By: Mark Twain - Harper's,
September 1899



"If the statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one percent of the
human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of star dust lost in the
blaze of the Milky Way. Properly the Jew ought hardly be heard of; but he
is heard of, has always been heard of.

He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial
importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his
bulk. His contributions to the world's list of great names in literature,
science, art, music, finance, medicine, and obtuse learning are also way
out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers.

He has made a marvelous fight in this world in all the ages, and has done
it with his hands tied behind him. He could be vain of himself and be
excused for it. The Egyptians, the Babylonians, and the Persians rose,
filled the planet with sound and splendor, and faded to dream stuff and
passed away. The Greeks and the Romans followed and made a vast noise and
they are gone. Other peoples have sprung up and held their torch high for
a time. But it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished.

The Jew saw them all. Beat them all, and is now what he always was,
exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts,
no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind.

All things are mortal but the Jew. All other forces pass, but he
remains.

What is the secret of his immortality?..."
