MOHILEWER, Samuel (1824-1898), rabbi, early member of Hovevei Zion in
Russia, and a founder of religious Zionism. Born in Glebokie (now
Glubokoye), Vilna district, the son of a rabbinical family. He was
ordained a rabbi (1842), became rabbi in Glebokie in 1848, in Szaki >from 1854, in Suwalki 1860 and in Radom >from 1868. Active in community
affairs in each place especially during the Polish rebellion (1863).
In 1873 he participated in the St. Petersburg gathering of rabbis. He was attracted to the idea of settling Erez Israel even before the 1881 pogroms, but after they took place he went to Brody and Lvov to encourage refugees who fled Russia and to influence ... the stream of migration to Erez Israel.

Schei as a first name #general

Ury Link <uryl@...>
 

Dear Jewish Genners,

1. The name Schei (Shai) is a Hebrew name that mean a present and is used
since the 1930 - 1940 in Israel.

2.Schei is perhaps the name Schiyeh a diminution of the name Jehoshua.

3.Schei can be the name Shaia a diminution of the name Jeshaja or Jeshajahu.

In my opinion the suggestion no 2 can be the good one.

Re: Looking to Verify Hebrew Name #general

Ury Link <uryl@...>
 

Hello,
You wroth:
I'm hoping someone can help. My fiancee would like to verify her
Hebrew name; unfortunately, records are extremely scarce and we cannot
locate any documentation.

She recalls her name as being Mashi SHENGEL - is this a possible
Hebrew/Yiddish name for a girl?

Because her anglicised surname is SHOWMAN, I'd guess that SHENGEL
represents that name. But Mashi? Her (late) father was of Russian
origin, if that helps.

My answer is Yes, Mashi is a Jewish name and it is a nickname to the name
Miriam. >from Miriam it come through
Mirush,Mirish,Mirusha,Mirushka,Mirusna,(special in Russia) and >from this to
Mirsa,Misa,Masia,Mase or Mashe and Mashi.
It is not the Jewish Russian name Masha. Masha is a women that is called
after here dead father that was named Moshe.
But if it is a not official name it can be a diminutive of Masha ,what I
don't think that it is.
About the family name I can not help you.

Re: Help Needed: Translation of Tombstone #general

Moshe Wolf <womoshe@...>
 

Hi
Here is my guess.
The first line is the beginning of phrase >from The Book of Job (first
chapter, Phrase 16).
This phrase mentions the going away of MENACHEM, so it make sense to put it
on the tombstone of someone named Menachem.
The phrase is:
AL ELE ANI BOCHIYA
EYNI EYNI YARDA MAYIM
KI RACHAK MIMENI MENACHEM
MESHIV NAFSHI
HAYU BANAY SHOMEMIM
KI RACHAK OYEV
So the letters in the first line should be:
Ayn Lamed space Alef Lamed Heh space Alef Nun Yud space Bet Vav Chaff Yud
Heh.
The translation is: About this I'm crying.
It might be also a slight change of this phrase:
Ayn Lamed space Alef Lamed Heh space Alef Nun Vav space Bet Vav Chaff Yud
Mem. ( About this we are crying).
The second line is probably:
Ayn Lamed space Peh Tet Yud Resh Taff space Bet Ayn Lamed Yud space Vav Alef
Bet Yud Nun Vav space (an unknown word).
This is: On the death of my husband and our father.
About the last word I don't think it's king, I would expect Heh Yud Kuf Resh
(our dear) but the letters are not the same.
Line 3 is : MENACHEM MENDEL BEN SHNEOR ZALMAN
line 4 is:
Shin Nun Peh Tat Resh space Bet (unknown word).
That died in ______
Line 5 is:
Bet Taf Shin Ayn Heh space Bet Alef Bet space Taf Resh Samech Gimel.
9th of Av 5663.

Budapest - help needed #hungary

Lawrence Korman <korman3@...>
 

I'm trying to find a family with the surname of Pasches.

The parents were Jakob and Margit. They were living in Budapest as late
as the 1960s. It is possible that Margit is still alive, but not really
likely. I don't know the names of any of the children, but there were
some. I am told that Margit was blind.

All help appreciated.
