Hi,

I'm back >from Poland now for a little more than a week, and trying to
deal with things. Since I got back >from Poland I've gotten mostly
positive response to NY times article and other publicity about the
project to build a full size replica of the Zabludow wooden synagogue at
the outdoor section of the Museum Podlaskie in Bialystok. Recently
however I've gotten very negative responses >from a source that is very
important to me. I've heard >from several elderly people who were born in
Zabludow who are very upset with this project. They object strongly to
synagogue replica being built on Polish soil, and are very skeptical to
put it mildly of such strong Polish involvement in this project. Their
memories of life for them in Poland of their youth are not good. They
don't see what the purpose is of this project. A woman called me >from
Florida this evening. She said it would be a "sin" to let the Polish
"goim" rebuild this synagogue for their own purposes, and our Zabludow
Jewish martyrs would be turning over in their graves to see this
synagogue be built in Bialystok by them! This is the kind of thing that
can keep me up at night.

Personally I feel that in a perfect world it would be best to rebuild
the synagogue somewhere in Zabludow and not in the Scansen (outdoor
section of Museum Podlaskie) for several reasons. One is that it is a
poor town with what I understand is a lot of unemployment. Perhaps
having the synagogue there would attract visitors and provide some
opportunities for local people to profit >from that, which in a way is
not a bad thing. It may help form a positive association with respect
and preservation of Jewish heritage. This may sound silly but I also
think that perhaps if the synagogue was located in Zabludow it might set
into motion processes, and have qualities that it would not have located
in the Scansen. It may more or less force for lack of a better word the
local community to deal more with what happened to the Jewish community
than they have to date. Of course I am not nearly familiar enough with
the local conditions to determine if locating the synagogue in Zabludow
would have ever been realistic or practical at all, and I basically
accept the explanation >from the people >from the Conservators office as
to why Zabludow was not the best option. I couldn't help but notice that
at the workshop on the project which was held at the museum there was no
representation >from nearby Zabudow, but many >from Bialystok. I think the
Mayor of Bialystok was there at one point. Also when we visited Zabludow
there was no participation form any municipal representative. A couple
of years ago I was told by some people in Zabludow that the Zabludow
Mayor is not someone who would be very receptive to any Jewish
endeavors. I will say that if I were the Mayor of Zabludow I'd probably
be fighting to have the synagogue located in my town, but this really is
not so much my business? I'm concerned that in the Scansen the
synagogue will be purely a museum piece, and not more of a living thing.
What I want to avoid and am concerned about is having things the way
American Indian (Native American) heritage was once treated here in
North America. Currently I think the intention is to use the building of
the synagogue replica to exhibit documentation of the many wooden
synagogues that were once in the Bialystok region. My concern is that
any exhibit there be of the highest quality, that it serve an
educational purpose to the local community, and that it deal honestly
and forthrightly in some way with the reality of what happened to the
Jewish communities.

This project currently has no organized Jewish involvement. No Jewish
organization, Museum, etc has gotten involved with it. . . just me!
What I had hoped is that one of the Jewish organization or museums would
back it and partner with the Museum Podlaskie and the Conservators, but
this hasn't yet happened. If a Jewish source provides some of the money
for the project they will naturally have influence over it's ultimate
form. I should add the American Timber Framers Guild is also very
involved in this project and they would actually be the builders of it.
There is a "consultant" to the project >from a Jewish organization in
Poland which I will let go un named, but as far as I can tell she is
soundly sleeping, and wasn't even at the workshop. I was honest and
emailed the Director of the conservators in Warsaw with whom I have had
some previous contact. I voiced my concerns. I don't know if it was in
part the language difficulty. I think his English is not all that good.
But he was really quite upset with what I told him, and didn't seem to
take it that well. My intention was just to be honest and put my
concerns on the table and have a dialogue with him about these matters.

I could go on and on about all of this. What I'm looking for is input,
opinions, suggestions >from people about the issues raised here. What do
people think about a project to build this synagogue run by Poles? What
do people think about a Zabludow wooden synagogue standing in a museum?
What do people think about the prospect of getting organized Jewish
involvement in this project? What do people think about attitude of
elderly Jewish people with memories of Zabludow?

Schenker Marriage Record #general

Larry Schenker <lpsca@...>
 

Any help and suggestions in the below matter
will be greatly appreciated.

I would like to locate and obtain a copy of the
marriage record of my grandparents. I believe that
Josef was born between 1882 - 1884 and Ciwze
(no maiden name know) was born between 1878 - 1882).
Josef and Ciwze were married between 1902 - 1903.

Two major facts are not very clear:
1. Where were they married?
. Brestz-Litovski, Russia where their Ellis Island
records indicate.
Also the 1920 United States Federal Census records
indicate that they were born in Brestz-Litovski, Russia.
You can see the actual census records by going to the
below web site:

http://community.webshots.com/user/schenkerfamilyhistory

. Minsk, Russia a town that has been mentioned as a
possible marriage site
. Pinsk, Russia another town that has been mentioned as a
possible marriage site
2. What was my grandfather's Surname at birth and how
was it spelled?
. Surnames with the same Schenker Daitch-Mokotoff soundex are:
Cenzer, Cenzor Junker Schanker, Schantzer, Schencker,
Schmitzer, Schniker, Schnitzer, Senzer, Shenker, Singer
Yanker Zanger, Zinger
. Also was their Surname even Schenker. There has been
some mention by my father in the last year of his
life, but never confirmed, that his father Josef's
name was not Schenker but really Tenenbaum (or some
similarly sounding name). As the story goes,
Josef was a Russian dissident who had to escape >from
the Tzar's police and army during the uprisings and
civil disturbances in the early 1900's - and that before
he left Russia in or about 1906 he changed his name
from Schenker to Tenenbaum. There are no records here
in the United States to indicate that this is anything
more than a possible story.

Thanks again. Any help or suggestion will be greatly appreciated.
