Synagogue in the Bronx #general

Ellen Lee <ellie2@...>
 

Dear Genners,

My uncle told me that he attended a synagogue (he doesn't remember
the name) located at Nelson Ave and Featherbed Lane in Bronx, NYC.
This would have been in the 1940's. I don't believe this synagogue
exists, today. Any ideas on how I might learn the name or find out
if any records exist.
Thanks for any suggestions.

Chassidut Chortkov #rabbinic

Am I correct that Chortkov was one of the five (I believe) chassidic
groups that were subgroups of Ruzhin?

Seeking a Chortkover Chosid in Israel #rabbinic

ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

Several years ago I spoke with a Chortkov Chosid who lives in
Jerusalem about my great uncle whom he knew. I don't remember his
name, which was given to me by a Chortokover Chosid >from Tzfat (or
Tveria).

Would anyone know anyone here in Israel who is a Chortkover Chosid
so I can retrace my steps? My great uncle's grandson (they are all
Breslevers today - including the President of the World Union of
Breslav) is interested in finding the Chortokover I spoke to.

Interesting how people switched their chassidic allegiances over
time.

Thanks,

Yoni Ben-Ari

January 2004 update for Yizkor Book Project #general

Happy Presidents' Day to All.

My apologies to all for the late update on additions to the Yizkor
Book site for January 2004. I was out of town during the time I
usually prepare this monthly report but the efficient volunteers for
the Yizkor Book Project continued to work and donors continued to
submit new translations. Without these two important groups the
translation project could not exist. I can never thank them enough.

During January we produced 6 new entires and 17 updates. They are
flagged in the alphabetical listing at
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/translations.html

New entries:

Pinkas HaKehillot Lita:
-Dotnuva
-Rumsiskes (Romsishok)
-Siluva
Pinkas HaKehillot Poland:
-Jagielnica, Ukr
Yidishe Shtet
-Dotnuva
-Siluva

Updates:
-Brzeziny, Poland
-Byarosa, Belarus
-Czyzew, Poland
-Dusetos, Lith
-Bedzin, Poland
-Gabin, Poland: http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/gombin/gombin.html

-Losice, Poland
-Mlawa, Poland
-Oradea, Romania
-Ruzhany, Belarus
-Sosnowiec, Poland, volume 1
-Sosnowiec, Poland, volume 2
-Wyszogrod, Poland


There are many books yet to be translated, waiting only for an eager
volunteer to step up to coordinate a translation project. Our Yizkor
Book Project staff is available to help you through the
process. Please contact me if you are willing and able to coordinate
a translation project. Or, if you have Hebrew or Yiddish translation
skills, you might want to start by volunteering to translate a
chapter >from the Pinkas HaKehillot on your ancestral town. Informaton
at http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/donation/ will explain part of
the process.

Many of our projects are fundraising projects. You can help by
contributing money to pay to have these books professionally
translated. The current fundraising projects are listed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/YizkorTrans.html.

Thanks again for all the help and support our readers have provided
to the Yizkor Book Project over the years. We hope that these new
translations will help you with your research.

Workmen's Circle Organization #general

russ <russ@...>
 

Hi all. I have come across some letters that mention one of my ancestors
was a charter member of the Workmen's Circle in Detroit. Does anyone
know if there are published membership lists available >from pre-1920?
I know there have been a few books written about the organization,
but I have been unable (so far) to locate one locally to
peruse the contents.

Thanks in advance,

Re: Chassidic Appellations #rabbinic

Larry Tauber <ltauber@...>
 

Thank you to everyone who responded to my questions. Shmuel Shoshan
seems to have definitively answered the question regarding the
naming of Yehuda Avrohom Eber ROZENBERG and his son.

Regarding Nechemiah ROSENBERG, the definitive answer is a bit more
mundane. I contacted the transcriber of the Sighet burial register
hoping to learn more, and discovered the entry is apparently a
transcriber's error. The letters Aleph Resh listed in the register
were incorrectly translated as the name Aryeh. They are in actuality
an abbreviation of "eishet rav", "wife of rabbi" as is clear >from a
picture of the gravestone.
