Jewish Holidays in Latvia #latvia

Arlene Beare <arl@...>
 

I have received this message >from Rabbi Glazman. It is good to see
that Jewish life is alive and well in Latvia. I know that many of us
are unobservant and that the Chabad message is not to everyone's
liking but as I said they are doing a wonderful job in keeping Jewish
traditions alive.

The busy month of holidays is now over and it is time to make a reckoning of
all activities and accomplishments.

The attractive Jewish calendar that was published and distributed includes
information about holidays and other programs that will take place
throughout the year. A special pamphlet with all the dates and times of
prayers and celebrations in the Synagogue was sent mailed out and as a
result, there was a marked difference in the service attendance this
Tishrei. An informative booklet with detailed explanations and insights on
the holidays was given out, as was, of course, the yearly candle lighting
brochure.

The first night of Rosh Hashanah, the Synagogue was full to capacity. The
next day, many people came especially to hear Tkiat Shofar. Late afternoon,
special programs for kids and adults were made for those who could not make
it to the morning prayers. It ended with a spirited walk to the Daugava
river for the traditional Tashlich.

A beautiful holiday meal was arranged in Hotel Riga for the students and
parents of Ohel Menachem Kindergarten and school. A separate evening for
college students was also well attended.

On Yom Kippur, the Synagogue was crowded for the Tfillot for Kol Nidrei and
Neila. Machzorim were provided for all and the "Prayer Partner" system was a
big help for those unfamiliar with the services.

With the help of the JDC, Lulavim sets were made available for interested
individuals and Jewish institutions in Riga and other cities in Latvia.

The week of Succoth was a lively one here in Riga. Various parties and
concerts were organized for groups of all ages. The Riga Klezmer band had
people dancing to their lively music in the Synagogue on Sunday afternoon.
The children of the kindergarten and school were happy to perform for their
parents and the many guests who also visited the decorated Succah and
enjoyed refreshments there. The joy was brought as far as Daugavpils with a
portable Succah and an interesting program.

What would holidays be without good food? Thank G-d, there has been a steady
supply of kosher chickens in the Baltics, with the most recent Shchita of 5
ton of chicken before Rosh Hashanah. Two thousand liters of milk were
imported >from France for those in the interested in Kosher milk products.

The old-age Jewish tradition of "Upsherenish"(first haircutting at a boy's
third birthday) was brought to public eye, when a triple ceremony took place
last week. The three adorable boys with their long locks of hair impressed
the guests with their knowledge of the Jewish Aleph Bet, Brochot and words
of Torah. They licked honey off the holy letters and had candies thrown on
them by the "angels", who also rejoiced in the new scholars' achievements.
All the young guests joined in for a Torah dance while their parents looked
on with pleasure. The boys were so proud of their brand new Tzitzit that
they were finally able to don. The transformation was complete when each
participant was called up to snip a piece of hair, leaving the payot as
required by Jewish law.

Wishing you a good "Chodesh" and a happy and healthy winter.

Rabbi Mordechai Glazman

New JRI-Poland Indexing Project - Rzeszow Census Records #poland

Eden Joachim <esjoachim@...>
 

Dear Researchers,

It's my pleasure to let you know about the Rzeszow Census indexing project
of Jewish Records Indexing - Poland. Rzeszow is at coordinates Latitude
50 03' Longitude 22 00', in the former Galicia region of Austro-Hungary.
Today Rzeszow is in southeastern Poland, between Krakow and Lviv, Ukraine.

The Census of 1870 includes 5394 individuals; the Census of 1890 includes
5527 individuals. Both censuses provide: House Number, Apartment Number,
Surname, Given Name, Gender, Year of Birth, Place of Birth, Marital Status,
Community Affiliation, Relationship to Head of Household and Comments in
some cases.

There are 598 distinct surnames, 242 different towns of birth and 100
different community affiliations listed in the 1870 Census. There are 1211
distinct surnames, 413 towns of birth and 331 community affiliations listed
in the 1890 Census. Name and Town frequency lists for both censuses are
available for your use.

Because of the number of entries in each census, and that the Excel files
are almost exact duplicates of the actual census records, not merely
name indices, the project funding target is $4500. In order to be eligible
to obtain a copy of the file in Excel format, a minimum Qualifying
Contribution is $125 US to Jewish Records Indexing-Poland. We do, however,
appreciate your contributions in any amount. Your contribution may be made

Does anyone have any information about the Displaced Person camps in
Sweden in 1945? I believe 2 of the cities that housed former internees
were Ryd and Grymma (spelling?). I am specifically interested in these
camps in relation to the Ravensbruck
prisoners. Any information would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Need help from NYers #general

dayna reader <zoeys_mom@...>
 

My husband's g-GPs, Leiser & Esther Krugman died in
Monticello, (Sullivan Co.) NY, she about 1952, he
about 1972. He was supposedly the Rabbi of an Orthodox
shul in Monticello, although I haven't been able to
find which one yet.

My question for fo;lks who know the area is, what are
the names of the Jewish cemeteries in and around the
Monticello area? (This way I can call them up and
inquire as to whether they are buried there).

Thanks, and please respond privately.

warts #general

jutel@...
 

I come to this thread late, but might just add that some
unpleasant "warts" have helped me in my genealogy research!
I was surprised to find out that my great grandfather
appeared regularly in the court news of his local paper. He
was a pawn broker, and with his brother Michael, was
regularly charged with extortion, receiving, and other
unsavoury practices. Now, this ancestor had an unusual name
(and you'll note I am not going to tell you what it is. We
can keep our dirty laundry in the family. Maybe my cousins
feel more private about this than I do), and interestingly,
a Michael, pawn broker, by the same name, is found in the
Manitoba court pages. I had, disregarded this Michael,
convinced our family had never been near Canada. But, the
similarity of his dismeanor and occupation were clues that I
pursued, and which allowed me to follow his pathway from
Canada, to Colorado and finally to join his brother (my
great grandfather) in Utah. while I haven't been successful
yet, I am hoping that research in Manitoba may open some
doors to the old country which have been closed to present.

French Jewish Scouts (Dinard & Beaulieu/Dordogne) & ALTSHUL family (Paris & Switzerland) #general

Alice Josephs
 

My mother (born 1931) and her elder sister attended the De Hirsch school in
Paris (1938-9) and were evacuated with the Jewish scout movement first to
Dinard and then to Beaulieu in the Dordogne until June 1940.

There was an older girl called Annette and also children called Jeanette,
Helene, Marguerite and Simone (as with my mother, names of refugees of
non-French origin may have been made more French).

My mother met two other survivors >from that time after the war Madame
ALTSHUL who lived in Paris and her daughter Charlotte ALTSHUL who was in
Switzerland in 1948. There was also a son ALTSHUL who survived the war
elsewhere. Madame ALTSHUL may have been interned with my grandmother in the
Velodrome d'Hiver (the bicycle racing stadium) in Paris. The ALTSHUL mother
and daughter both had flaming red hair, if this jogs the memory of anyone.

So, is there anyone else out there who was at the De Hirsch school and/or
was evacuated to Dinard and Beaulieu at the same time as my mother? Have
there been any books or research on this?
