Leivik - a Hebrew Name? Update #ukraine

Rochelle Gershenow
 

Thank you to the many Genners who responded to me privately or on the list
about my inquiry about whether Leivik is a Hebrew name. My father listed
Leivik as his Hebrew name on paperwork for a burial society. I need to know
what Hebrew name to put on his tombstone this coming year. So,I wanted to
determine what was the correct Hebrew name as I didn't think Leivik was
Hebrew. >from somewhere deep down in my memory I remembered my father
telling me that he was called Leibl boychik.

The answers I received >from people ran the gamut:

The Hebrew name is either Aryeh, Judah, Lev, or Levi.
Leivik is either a diminutive of the Hebrew "Levi" or the Yiddish "Leib" or
"Lev."

Well, I did get an answer to my original question, i.e., Leivik is not a
Hebrew name. Now, the decision as to what name to use has to be made.

I am very confused about the various Yaakov Koppels who lived in the

Yaakov Koppel Hasid
Yaakov Koppel Likover
Yaakov Koppel Charif
Yaakov Koppel of Mezhirech
Koppel is a kinnuy of Ya`akov (Jakob -> Jakoble -> Kopele). You can
assume that every Koppel is a Ya`akov.

I found information on three of the above

Jacob Koppel Ben Aaron Sasslower (second half of 17th century),
authority on the masoretic text and cantillation, and author of a
work on the masorah. Jacob Koppel came >from Zaslavl near Ostrog
(Volhynia). He was the author of Nahalat Ya'akov (1686).

Jacob Koppel Ben Moses of Mezhirech (d. c. 1740), Polish kabbalist.
Jacob was influenced by the Shabbatean movement in Poland, and he
himself influenced Hasidism. His main published works are: Sha'arei
Gan Eden (Korets, 1803).

Jacob Harif was Av Bet Din of Leszniow and the province of Podolia.

There is an old photograph of Ship Alley on the
following website:

http://www.mernick.co.uk/thhol/p_well02.html

In case you are interested, there are a couple of
companies doing Jewish heritage walks - one of these
is called London Walks and their website is:

http://london.walks.com/

I have been on several walks with them and they have
been first class.

Another one is called Stepping Out but I believe they
are having a short break at the moment.

I have no commercial interest in either of these.

The local history library in Bancroft Road, Stepney
(also in the East End), has produced a leaflet of "do
it yourself" East End walks in conjunction with the
Jewish East End Celebration Society. The library also
has many records on the Jewish East End, and a
wonderful selection of old photographs.

I hope your enjoy your stay in London.

Dear Friends -

I wonder if anyone can point me to a website that shows pre-WW2 roads in
London, or point me to any related information. The reason is that I will be
briefly in London in April, and am curious to find if Ship Alley still
exists. I'm pretty sure that it has been redeveloped, but it did still exist
in the 1950's. It was a narrow alley somewhere in the East End, can't recall
where, and my Parents stayed there briefly with a Mrs Mazin on arrival from
Vienna in mid-1939.

As my hotel is near Liverpool Street, on the fringes of the East End. I
thought that I might try to find it.

Thank you for any pointers.

Searching for families of Rabbis Tanicki and Czarne, Ukraine #general

Lisa
 

Dear Group,

I am searching for the families of the following rabbis who were married to
two of the many daughters of Rabbi Yitzhak Avraham HAISSINSKY (GAISINSKY) of
Stavishche (Stavisht), Ukraine (1857-1942). The sons-in-law of Rabbi
Gaisinsky were most likely born between the years 1875-1890. Here is the
information >from 1912 that I have on them:

The first son-in-law was Rabbi Zelig TANICKI, son of Rabbi Aryeh, the kosher
butcher in Bogoslav, a respected merchant in Kharkov.

The second son-in-law was Rabbi Dov Ber CZARNE, Rabbi of Monasterzyce, son
of Rabbi Shlomo Fishel, who himself was also once the Rabbi of Monasterzyce.

I am trying to assist a few members of the families of the wives of these
two rabbis who were sisters to each other. We do not know the first names of
the wives.

There is a slight possiblity that one of these families may have immigrated
to England but we have no confirmation of this. It's possible that they
remained in Russia or may have immigrated to another country in later years.

Any leads would be appreciated!
Many thanks,
