Dear Amos and all,

I'm not quite sure if "latkes" and the Hungarian
"langos" are the same cookings. In my family, both
from Kosice and Budapest, the custom was to eat
"langos" with garlic and butter. This was considered
a winter delicacy, to be eaten near a burning stove.
I never knew it to be served "sweat".

It's about that time of the year when we all light

on latkes.

Hello,

My great-Grandfather Shlomo Yitzchak (Salamon Ignac) Friedmann attended the
Pressburg Yeshiva in the time period ~1895-1905. I'm trying to find a
record of him in the Yeshiva and a photo of him if possible. I'd appreciate
any help or advice that anyone might have in obtaining this information.

Thanks so much!

MUIZENBERG TALMUD TORAH

Legend has it that the Cheder in Muizenberg was the largest in the Southern
Hemisphere and arguably the best !

My brother Joseph and I attended this Cheder >from about 1942 to 1947 during
the War years. We resided in Watson Road in between the Pasvolsky and Matz
families for a number of years.

To the best of our recollection a Mr Levite was the Principal and taught
each of us for our Barmitzvah. My Barmitzvah was at the Muizenberg and Kalk
Bay Hebrew Congregation in September 1946 according to the Singer Daily
Prayer Book presented to me by the President - Mike Barnett. I have a
Certificate of Merit (2nd Class ) issued by the Board of Jewish Education
following an examination by the Board prior to my Barmitzvah and signed by
the Acting Chairman Dr Hurwitz and the Secretary S Goldin and the examiner
Dr Birnbaum.

Joseph remembers one of the teachers was a Mrs Lurie and there was a male
Israeli Hebrew Teacher whose name we cannot recall but was renowned for
performing some athletic feats for us.

The Cheder was housed in a substantial building with a number of classrooms
and a large Hall and stage and we attended classes daily at 3.30 pm. The
Coopersmith family lived opposite the Cheder.

Is there anyone willing to write the History of Muizenberg Jews ?

Does nobody want to know about the Chader in Johannesburg? I went to the
Bernard PATLEY Chader, which was attached to the Yeoville Shul. The
Headmaster was a Mr. SHATCHIN and the teachers (those I remember) were Bella
AARON (later GOLUBCHIK), Solly WEINBERG (>from Cape Town) and Mr. SHATCHIN.
I remember a few of the "children" but am not listing them as I am not sure
if that would be off the topic. I attended the Chader >from 1961 (which is
the year I arrived in S.Africa >from Dublin, Ireland) until 1964. It was a
blast!

Cheders in S.A. #southafrica

Ann Rabinowitz <annrab@...>
 

There are a number of references which will provide additional info on
Jewish Education or the Talmud Torah or Cheder in South Africa. Here are a
few:

1. "The Talmud Torah - A Brief Explanation" by Rev. David Crook which
appears on the SA SIG web site.

2. The following web site gives a description of the resposibilities of the
SAJBOD: http://www.shemayisrael.co.il/sa/sajbd/sajbd.htm Look at the
Education section.

3. Barry Mann's web site on Witbank, http://www.barrymann.net/, to see
photos of the Talmud Torah classes there.

There are other references which you can look up on-line by checking "Talmud
Torah" or "Cheder" and "South Africa". In addition, the SA Jewish Year
Books have sections on Education and the historical texts dealing with the
SA Jewish community would refer to Jewish education.

Thanks to all who are sending me information
on the various Chedorim in Cape Town.

I am going to be working on an article on
Jewish Education in South Africa, starting
with Cape Town for our SA SIG Website.
For this reason I have asked for the above
information.
As I think of various other components of
Jewish Education, I will put out requests on
the SIG Digest and hope that the response will
be good in order to begin the article as soon as
I have all the material for which I am looking.

Many thanks.

Re: Samuel is a Greek transliteration of Shmuel #germany

Andreas J Schwab <andreas.schwab@...>
 

"Samuel" is a Western transliteration of the Hebrew "Shmuel". It is
used in translations of the Tanakh within the Christian tradition, such
as that by Martin Luther and the King James Bible. It has its origin in
the "Septuagint", a Greek Tanakh translation >from the third century BC.
http://www.septuagint.net/
The Greek text is found here:
http://titus.fkidg1.uni-frankfurt.de/texte/etcs/grie/sept/sept.htm
The Septuagint transliterates "Shmuel" as
sigma-alpha-mu-omikron-upsilon-eta-lambda. Note that the Greek language
does not have a phoneme corresponding to the Hebrew shin, so sigma was
used instead, pronounced like [s]. The alpha between sigma and mu
stands for shwa.

There are similar transliterations for all names in the Tanakh such as
Isaak, Salomo, etc.
