"Nachalat Shiva" was *not* the first Jerusalem neighbourhood outside
the walls. It was the third. The first (1860) was "Mishkenot
Shaananim" ("Yemin Moshe").

R' Meir HaCohen of Lutomiersk #rabbinic

Isak Gath <isak@...>
 

Hello fellow RavSIGgers!

I am looking for information on R' Meir HaCohen who was AB"D and
Chief Rabbi of Lutomiersk (near Lodz) and died there in 1832.
According to the book "Ir Lask..." by Gliksman he has written
comments on "Ketubot" and "Baba Batra" and also Responsa. Where can
I find these books or manuscripts ? Any information about him, his
books and/or his ancestors will be greatly acknowledged.

Does "Wolf" = "Farkas" #hungary

Sam Schleman <Samara99@...>
 

Hello All.

Could someone whose knowledge of Hungarian is greater than mine (Almost the
entire Western World) tell me if the name "Wolf" would be "Farkas" in
Hungarian? If not, what would Farkas translate into?

Thanks for your help.

Did I post this already? Does anyone know about a Jewish orphanage in

Re: Bar Kochba race #general

I'm trying to research two Jewish boys who came to the U.S. in 1930.
They were on a walk around the world with the Bar Kochba Athletic
Club in Lithuania.
The Bar Kochba club was a Zionist enterprise whose records would
surely be at the Central Zionist Archives. Come to Jerusalem in July
to the 24th International Jewish Genealogy Conference and use their
archives. The CZA is only a five minute walk >from the conference
hotel!
