Translation of Yad Vashem POT, Item 9. #general

Avrohom Krauss <krauss@...>
 

The hebrew word "miktzoah" means "profession", "vocation" or "occupation."

Avrohom Krauss

< On some Yad Vashem POTs, item 9 reads "Mem Kof Tzadi Vav Ayin."
What is the Hebrew word (transliterated version) and how is it
translated (into English)? >

A JewishGen win/win project #rabbinic

Carol W. Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

Dear 'Genners

You have always sought a JewishGen that meets your own needs,
a JewishGen that keeps the services free to you the user, the
researcher of your personal Jewish heritage. You require a
JewishGen that's committed to finding and presenting projects
that ensure a win/win situation.

"Published by JewishGen" is just such a project. You've told us
by your enthusiastic response so far that "Preserving our Litvak
Heritage...A History of 31 Jewish Communities in Lithuania" by Josef
Rosin was the correct book to launch this new project.

In addition to being a monumental work of 736 pages with over 500
photographs, some >from private family collections, there is an
extensive forward written by the eminent scholar Professor Dov
Levin. Each chapter is devoted exclusively to one of the 31
Lithuanian communities, a list too lengthy to mention here, but a
visit to the JewishGenMall will identify them for you.

To make this another win/win situation, you can purchase Rosin's
book at a 40% discount, but only up until April 30th, and only
through the JewishGenMall. All proceeds >from sales at the Mall flow
into the JewishGen General Fund which helps defray the mounting
operating expenses. So, every time you purchase any product from
the JewishGenMall you are helping us meet our financial needs. The
more JewishGen benefits >from your purchases, the longer we can keep
from becoming a fee-based service, something JewishGen has been
trying so hard to avoid since it first began.

If Lithuania is ***your*** ancestral home, Rosin's expanded history
offers you extensive material >from archival sources as well as
personal memoirs. It is truly a picture of the life and times in
these communities >from their early beginnings and ending with the
Nazi's attempts to annihilate all of Lithuanian Jewry. For any
researcher who is looking for information about Lithuania,
especially about these 31 towns, this book is a personal treasure.
It will also be a treasure for your children and your grandchildren.

Whatever country is part of your research interests, please take a
look at all the material you will find in the mall. Just select
that country >from the drop-down search list in the TOPICS field. You
will find an extraordinary collection at very competitive prices.
If Josef Rosin's book is of interest, click on the picture of the
book cover to read more about it and place your order at the
pre-publication 40% discounted price which is only $52.80, plus S&H.
You can buy as many copies as you need for other family members at
this heavily discounted price.

For a real win/win situation, make the JewishGen Mall your first
stop when looking to purchase Jewish-interest books, software, CDs,
or videos. You'll save money on most purchases, and you'll help
keep all of the valuable JewishGen services free. Visiting
http://www.jewishgenmall.org will truly be a win/win situation!

JewishGen Special Projects

P.S. Don't lose out! Don't be distracted by the Passover holiday!
***order today*** The 40% discount on Josef Rosin's "Litvak" book
will last only until midnight April 30th and cannot be offered again
after publication.

Sarah Hinde bas Yosef - Volozhin Family #rabbinic

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

I've posted this in the past but I'll try again:

Does anyone know of a Sarah Hinde (married Shlomo KANTOR) bat Yoseph
who lived in Pinsk during the mid 19th cent. who may have been a
descendant of Reb Chaim of Volozhin or anyone in his family.

Sarah Hinde immigrated to Yerushalayim in 1873 with four children
(her husband was then 33 years old) so I presume she was born around
1840.

Good chances that there is a LANDA(U) connection.
