Searching SHAPIRO family #general

Thia Persoff
 

While searching for my NEPOMNYASHCHY cousins and their family (>from
Pochep), who immigrated to the U.S.A. in 1923, I saw in the Ellis Island
passenger records that they were going to stay at their son-in-law David
SHAPIRO. If any of you have any information that can help me to contact
those Shapiros and Nepomnyashchys and/or their descendents I would highly
appreciate it.

Symbolic Meaning of a Crown #general

martin j kronman <mkronman@...>
 

Merav Schejtman inquired as to the meaning of a crown on a tombstone.

David Goberman has considered at great length the meaning of such symbols
in his book "Carved Memories Heritage in Stone >from the Russian Jewish
Pale". He states that "...crowns are used to convey various meanings. A
crown on a torah scroll signify a scholar or the crown of priesthood over
the blessing hands of a priest. For a highly regarded individual the
epitaph may speak of a good name."

In support of these conlusions Goberman quotes >from Mishnah (Avot 4:17):
"there are three crowns: the crown of Torah; the crown of priesthood; the
crown of royality, but the crown of a good man excells them all."

Needless to say I find these words to suggest the meaning of my family
surname. KRONMAN (man of the crown).

PAUL Family from Anikst #general

Shuman, Carl H
 

My greatgrandfather, Moshe Yom Tov PAUL, was a rabbi >from Anikst. He was
married three times and outlived all three wives. One of his wives was
Rachel BINDER. I am trying to confirm the names of his other wives. He
died, I believe, in 1920 and was buried in a town near Anikst. His son,
Abraham (Label) PAUL, was my grandfather who emigrated to the U.S.
(Philadelphia) sometime in the early 1900's.
