ViewMate translation request - Polish #poland

Alex Girshovich
 

Dear Group,

I am seeking for help in translating the heading of the 1795 census
page of Turets, Novogrudok County, Belarus. Apparently it was a
Lithuanian province at that time.
The census was conducted in the year of the Russian annexation of this
area >from Poland (aka the 3rd division of Poland), and it was done in
Polish.
I hope that this translation will help me to understand better the
context of this place.
The image in Polish is posted at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM75182

Please respond via the form provided on the ViewMate image page or
directly to my email agirsh1@gmail.com.

Greatly appreciate your help.

BR,

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake
 

Rosh Hashanah and the Days of Awe are nearly upon us. What better way
to get into the feeling of this time of year is a chapter in the
Vasilishki section of the Yizkor book of Shchuchin, Lida District,
Vilna and Grodno Gubernii, now Belarus, titled "About the Old Home"

The approach of a holiday was felt in the air, especially when it was
Rosh Hashanah,wrote Yosef Ben-Abraham. He goes on to describe the
town's devout observation of Yom Kippur and the awe and fear for the
Day of Judgment. On Rosh Hashanah, the stores closed early, the men
with their wet beards could be seen returning >from the mikveh and
dressed to the hilt, people hurried to synagogue. And, as Yom Kippur
approached, people prepared Yom Kippur Drops(ammonia) with which
to revive a faint Jew or simply wake up a sleepy one by holding it to
their nose and quickly run away so that they would not know who did it.
When the High Holidays were over, it was as though a stone had fallen
off one's heart. Everyone believed that the compassionate and Merciful
One had listened to their prayers and will probably inscribe them for
a good year.

Help identifying portrait with Hebrew inscription #general

Cory Streisinger
 

I'm trying to identify the subject of a portrait I've posted on ViewMate at

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM75192

The portrait comes >from an online genealogy site where the subject is
identified as R. Aryeh Leib ben Saul Lowenstam (1690-1755), ABD
Amsterdam. (He is my eighth-great-grandfather.) I'd like to confirm
whether this identification is correct. Based on the inscription and
the book in the portrait, it's also been suggested that this is
actually R. Aryeh Leib's son R. Saul Lowenstam (1717-1790), also ABD
Amsterdam. I've posted a closer view of the inscription at

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM75193

I would appreciate any views on whether this is R. Aryeh Leib, R.
Saul, or someone else, as well as any further translation of the
inscription (sorry about the poor quality), and if anyone knows the
source of this portrait, please let me know.

Thanks very much (and thanks to those who have weighed in already).
Please respond via ViewMate or privately by email.

Rabbi Isaac Simcha HURWITZ-Hartford, Ct. (d-1936) #general

Can anyone tell me if Rabbi Isaac Simcha HURWITZ , who was a Rabbi in
Hartford, Ct. (d-1936) was a descendant or relative of Moshe ben David
(Rav of Novarodok 18th cent.). Moshe adopted the name HOROWITZ (not
sure of the spelling) as per his father-in-law, HOROWITZ of Minsk.
I know that Rabbi Isaac Simcha H. was also >from Novarodok.
TIA
Shabbat Shalom and Shana Tova to all

Moshe HOROWITZ- son of Rabbi David of Novarodok 18th cent. #general

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

I am researching the family of a Moshe son of Rabbi David (of
Novardok) son of Moshe of Kletzk. The younger Moshe lived and died
(relatively young) during the 18th cent.

I don't know his or his father's family name, but his father was the
Rav of Novarodok during the 18th cent. (He was also known for his
book: "Galia Mesechet)
What I know about him: He married the daughter of a HOROWITZ from
Minsk and adopted his father's -in-law's familyname (probably due to
the Yichus or that he did not have a family name). He died relatively
young , possibly in his 30s.

One of the descendants of his father are AGOLNICKs but I do not know
if they are >from the above moshe. Rabbi David also had a daughter
married to a RABINOWITZ who published his f.-I.-L's book "Galia
Mesechet.

My interest is that >from famly sources (no official records, just
scribbled notes) we are related to Moshe's father,R' David. My
ancestors are also >from Novarodok and we are somehow related to a
HOROWITZ.

TIA and Shaa Tova Umevurechet to all
