JGS Pittsburgh June Meeting #general

Rae M. Barent <RaeBarent@...>
 

JGS Pittsburgh May Meeting
Date: Monday, June 21, 2004
Time: 7:30 P.M.
Place: Rudolph Family Holocaust Ctr.of United Jewish Federation
JCC Robinson Bldg.
5738 Darlington Rd.
Pittsburgh, PA 15217
This month's meeting, the last until Fall, should be the most interesting of the
year. We have ordered a film >from IAJGS and there will be an opportunity to
discuss it after the showing. Plan on being with us for this special program.

The film, The Lost Wooden Synagogues of Eastern Europe, narrated by Theodore
Bikel, was filmed in 2000 and runs for 48 minutes.

Before WWII, more than 1000 wooden synagogues dotted the shtetls of Eastern
Europe. Many had stood for centuries, testaments to the craftsmanship and faith
of the Jewish communities in the region. For decades the world believed all these
structures were lost. Then, a few years ago, a team >from Hebrew University
discovered six of these structures in Lithuania. Albert Barry >from Florida
Atlantic University travelled to Lithuania and Latvia with a film crew to document
these few remaining examples. While there he found four more wooden synagogues.
This film tells the story of the synagogues, the life that surrounded them before
the war and what has happened to them in the last fifty years.

If you have changed your e-mail address within the past six months, I would
appreciate it if you would contact me so I can update my mailing list.

I have just discovered that my 4 x great-uncle Joachim SCHOENBERG,
who lived in Chrzanow WNW of Krakow and died in 1833, was married to
Cirla HOROWITZ. Their daughter Rachel or Rachla was married to a Mr.
BIEDERMAN in Lelow. This looks very much like a member of the
Lelower chasidic dynasty.
There were a number of BIDERMAN-HOROWICZ marriages. Do you have any
more specific information? There is no shortage of BIDERMANs in Lelow!
What was his first name?
Have you tried to get their marriage record?

Do any of you mavens out there know who
this Mr. B is and who his parents are and who their descendants are?

Joachim SCHOENBERG had had time for two wives and nine children
before he died. Cirla was the first wife, so Mrs. BIEDERMAN could
have been born in the 1810s or 1820s. Excuse my ignorance - Is the
Lelower community/dynasty still active?
Yes! The Lelover Rebbe moved to Jerusalem in 1850 and his descendants
continue the chasidus to this day.

New publication on SCHNEIDER-LANGENAUER trees #rabbinic

IsraelP <isai8v10@...>
 

I recently acquired a copy of a new private publication by a young
man named R' Shemuel Galinsky on the families of his wife's
grandparents - R' Chaim SCHNEIDER and his wife Scheindel Rachel
LANGENAUER. There are about eighty pages of text and trees,
followed by half a dozen pages of photographs and maybe fifty
frontspieces of various rabbinic publications associated with
ancestors of these families.

It is all in Hebrew and there is no index. The trees have names,
but no dates. There are extensive footnotes, indicating sources.

He charges sixty-five shekels for a copy, but may want more for
overseas mailing.

Schendel Rachel is a PIKHOLZ descendant, hence my interest. (I
certainly have no financial interest here!) The author used some of
my material and I will be integrating some of his.

If you contact me privately, I will give you his mailing address and
phone. He has no email and probably no fax.

Variant surname spellings and their transliteration Heb-Eng #germany

Bathsheba Frais <bafrais@...>
 

I finally got round to visiting the Archive of the Jewish People in
Jerusalem and looked for documents relating to my ancestors the Basch family
from Graetz in Prussia. The name I was looking for was Yitzchak (Isaac)
BASCH (c1800-c1850). I discovered a letter there with the signature of
Yitzchak "Bo'as". It anyone is familiar with Hebrew spelling, this signature
is written "beit", "aleph" (with a "T" shape vowel under the aleph), "aleph"
(with a hyphen shaped vowel under this letter), "samech". The letter is
dated 1832 so it is the correct period. I need to get it translated, since
it is written in a German type of Yiddish, but I didn't notice any more
names in the letter.

My question to the list is does it seem likely that this letter is written
by a BASCH ancestor, or does this spelling indicate a different family
altogether? I am not sufficiently familiar with Hebrew and how names can be
transliterated to English to know if I have found a family archive, or a
'red herring". Thanks in advance,
