Info on the Chafetz Chaim #general

Dov & Varda <yknow@...>
 

I received a phone call >from Nachum KAPLAN today, who has written a book
about his maternal family. He knew of my interest in the Chafetz Chaim, Rav
Shmuel SALANT, and the shtetl of Vasilishok (Vasilishki). The information
about the Chafetz Chaim's surname is at variance with the information I had
gathered previously. Mr. Kaplan has letters >from the Chafetz Chaim and
various family members to back up his claims. Here are the notes I jotted
down as we spoke.

Frida was first wife (also his second wife's name) of the Chafetz Chaim.
Her sister (Nachum Kaplan's grandmother) was married to Nachum MAGGID and
is buried on Mt. Of Olives. Their brother was Rabbi Avraham Yehuda HaLevi
EPSTEIN. He was married to the daughter of Rabbi Yitzchak HaCohen KAPLAN
who was the founder of the Yeshiva in Vashilishok. The Chafetz Chaim
headed the Yeshiva there, between the years 1868 and 1869. When he lived
there, and wrote the Mishna Brura, he only accepted food >from Rav KAPLAN.
Yehuda HaLevi EPSTEIN was the Moster Rebbe >from the town of Most in
Lithuania. A 1920's letter >from Nachum MAGGID, stated that since the
Moster's death, all traces of the Moster Rebbe's children had disappeared.
The father of the three, was the richest person in Radin.

Chafetz Chaim's surname was HACOHEN. POUPKO is the name his elder son Aryeh
Leib, assumed. Kagan was merely the Chafetz Chaim's pronounciation of
COHEN. His letter head said KAGAN.

Nachum MAGGID was the maggid of Rav Shmuel Salant, hence the surname he
adopted. He was known as the Warshaver maggid, the former head of Rav Isser
Zalman Meltzer's Yeshiva. He came to Palestine in 1890 and died 1916. He
lived in the Churva courtyard.

Shimon Halevi EPSTEIN had brothers that must also have been eminent:Yehuda,
Aryeh, and Zalman, who was married to (?) Blecher, >from a well known family
in Radin.

Dolph,

Town Saso'w (Sassov), is currently known as Sasov, Ternopil Province in the
Western Ukraine.
You can pinpoint this locality by using JewishGen's ShtetlSeeker while
entering Sasov, Ukraine and by clicking on the coordinates at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/loctown.htm

Prior to WWI town was part of Galicia, Austro-Hungarian Empire Province.

Immigrants >from this shtetl have been travelling on the Austrian passports
and hence is their claim to the Austrian nationality.

Polish, alongside Hungarian, and obviously German, were the official
languages of the Empire.

Poles have been in large responsible for the administration of Galicia and
they have been mostly the landowners of the region. It would be rather
difficult to claim Austrian heritage for the residents of the small
provincial shtetl located on the edge of the eastern lands of the Empire

During the interwar period, town has been part of the independent Poland,
district Zloczow, Tarnopol Wojewodstwo (Province).

from the total number of just over three thousands residents (1921 census),
Jewish population has represented the third.

You may for your family roots in Sasov search "All Poland", the newly
developed huge and extremly informative database at

http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Poland/

There is also one entry for Schepps, Sasov in the JGFF database.

Good hunting,

Re: Krugerdorf #belarus

I remember a documentary on CBC television a number of years ago about the
Jewish community of Kirkland Lake - close to Engelhart and presumably
Krugerdorf, which specifically depicts the cemetery used by that community,
and interviews someone about it on site. This could well be the cemetery you
are talking about.

We can refer you to people who may have more information.

Am seeking information about Krugersdorf Jewish Cemetery in
Northern Canada .

These were families having children in the period 1850-1890 +-.

Does anyone have any of these four surnames in Kurima or nearby?
