Rosa Kahn - New Jersey #southafrica

bubbles@...
 

Rabbi Shimon Sheima Lourie (1836-1908) had a son Avraham Yechetzkel who died
in Lithuania circa 1879 leaving a posthumous son who was also called Avraham
Yechetzkel known as Chatzkel or Edward. Avraham Yechetzkel’s widow Rosa
(maiden name unknown) then married a Mr Kahn and went to live in New Jersey
and had other children.

Edward, the posthumous son was brought up by his aunt Sara Lurie and her
husband Chaim Leib. They migrated to South Africa sometime in the early
1890’s.

If anyone knows this Kahn family, could you please contact me.

Thank you

There are many variations in spelling of the name that often has
become Newman in the US - Neumann, Naiman, Nejman, Neiman, Neeman,
etc.

My Naiman ancestors came >from eastern Poland. People at genealogy
meetings have asked me if I am related to the Neiman family of
Neiman-Marcus stores. Does anyone know there the Neiman family who
founded the Neiman-Marcus department store chain originated?

The Tauber Review - Feb-21-03 #rabbinic

Larry Tauber <Ltauber@...>
 

So much to report and so little time...

This week's Machberes column provides the genealogy of R. Chaim
Baruch RUBIN, Vishnitza Rebbe - Los Angeles, son of R. Avroham
Yehoshua Heshel RUBIN (d. 29 Tevet, 1999)(married to Chaya Sora
(d.2000)), son of R. Chaim Baruch RUBIN (1882-1943), son of R.
Naftali RUBIN (1861-1938), son-in-law of the Divrei Yechezkel.

R. Gershon TANNENBAUM, author of the column, notes that his own
grandfather, R. Yehudah Lieb TANNENBAUM (1887-1980) was the son
of R. Shraga Zvi TANNENBAUM (1826-1897).

The column discusses Rabbi Zvi Elimelech HALBERSTAM, son of
R. Yekusiel Yehuda HALBERSTAM (1904-1994), son of R. Zvi Hirsh
HALBERSTAM (1851-1918), son of R. Boruch (1829-1906), son of the
Divrei Chaim (i.e., R. Chaim HALBERSTAM of Sanz). There is a
discussion of the Lizjensker Chasidic Dynasty, beginning with
R. Elimelech WEISSBLUM (1717-1787). The current rebbe, R. Daniel
ROKEACH is the son of R. Avraham Yehoshua Heshel ROKEACH (1902 -
1979), son-in-law of R. Elchonon WEISSBLUM (d. 1923).

A separate column by R. Tannenbaum (Voice of Igud), provides a
biography of R. Boruch Halevi LEIZEROWSKY (d. 2000) of Philadelphia.
His son is R. Yitzchok Meir Zvi and his son-in-law is R. Dov Aaron
BRISMAN. R. Boruch Halevi LEIZEROWSKY's brother was R. Yiztchok,
their father was R. Shraga Feivel LEIZEROWSKI of Shelow. R. Boruch
Halevi LEIZEROWSKY's wife was Chaya Rivka, niece of R. Chaim Zvi
TAUBUS.

Those interested in the JUNGREIS family can access Rebbitzen Esther
YUNGREIS's column which is posted on the Jewish Press website and
discusses her trip to Hungary to visit the graves of her ancestors
and her family genealogy, including her descent >from the ShaCH (R.
Shabbatai HaCohen), grandfather R. Yisroel Halevi JUNGREIS b.Moses
Nossen Notte Halevi b. R. Shmuel Halevi JUNGREIS, brother of
R. Osher Anshil Halevi, sons of R. Yitzchak Halevi of Pupa.
Additional information concerning the JUNGREIS family can be found
in "The Unbroken Chain," pp. 143-145.

As mentioned last week, Yatid Ne'eman and HaModia noted the passing
of R. Meir ROSENBAUM of Lakewood, New Jersey. By piercing together
articles and various condolance notices, 19 family members can be
discerned, including his brothers Moses, David, Yaacov Dov, and
sister Nechama DREIFUS, his sons R. Joseph Isaac, R. Dovid,
R. Moses, Israel, daughter Ethel Leah, and sons-in-law, R. Moses
Judah BODENSTEIN, R. Joseph Zev FEINSTEIN, R. Ephraim Zalman PINES
and R. Joseph Isaac HASENFELD. R. ROSENBAUM was the son of
R. Israel ROSENBAUM and Bina, the daughter of R. David TURNER. He
married Sarah Reichel, daughter of Pinchas Shalom ATLAS. I would be
interested in anyone can place his exact relationship to R. Meir
ROSENBAUM (1852-1908), Admor of Krechnev.

The Summer 2002 issue of Judasim, which is still being sold,
contains an article by Henry Sosland "Discovering the Neziv and his
Ha'amaik Davar." The article includes a biography of the Netziv,
R. Naftali Zvi Yehudah BERLIN, and family history. The author notes
that R. Naftali Zvi Yehudah BERLIN's first wife Reina Batya, was the
daughter of R. Isaac, son of the Brisker Rav, R. Haim VOLOZHINER,
son of Isaac. The Netziv's second wife was Batya Miriam, daughter
of his sister Michlah, who married R. Jehiel Michal Halevi EPSTEIN,
author of Aruch HaShulchan. His son was R. Baruch Halevi EPSTEIN.
The Netziv's children included Jacob and Meir Bar Ilan >from his
second marriage, and Sora Rosha, who married R. Rafael b. Leibel
SHAPIRO, and Drayzel, who also married R. SHAPIRO after her sister's
death. The Netziv's granddaugther married R. Chaim SOLEVEITCHEK.
These families constitute the principle spiritual leaders of the
Modern Orthodox Movement. A detailed listing of the descendants and
relationship of the EPSTEIN-BERLIN-SOLVEITCHEK families is contained
in "The Unbroken Chain," beginning on p. 434, with a very helpful
chart.

Rebbitzin Jungreis, in the column noted above, provides her answer
as to why we should be engaged in the study of genealogy: "I believe
that we live >from zechut avot - the merit of our fathers. Their
righteousness, their chesed and goodness, their Torah, sustain us
and intercede on our behalf in front of HaShem`s Throne. In these
difficult days, we are more than ever in need of their merit."

Success! and many thanks #general

After many years of searching for a relative born in England, I was finally
able to receive a copy of her birth record. The surname, of course, was
not spelled quite as expected. I owe this remarkable discovery to the
kindness and time consuming efforts of a stranger. This gentleman saw a
post of mine on Jewishgen and like several others replied. But he offered
to do some lookups, not just make suggestions (which are always welcome).
He had access to records I did not and I am so grateful for his kindness.
I won't say his name, I don't want him overwhelmed with requests. But
many, many thanks to this fine gentlemen.
And of course without Jewishgen I would never have found anything over
the years or the wonderful people that have guided me.
One request, folks please, when you post surnames to FTJP and JGFF, if
someone writes to you - *reply*. With my new found name I sent out 9
emails, 3 were returned unknown, 2 answered and 4 didn't reply. And if you
get new email addresses please update your file. Thank you all.

That's exactly why I still, after all these years, am unable to verify
a specific location of where my grandfather's family came from.
Everything just says "Russia". Family legend says Minsk, but saying
"Minsk" could be the equivalent of saying "NYC" when one lives in Great
Neck.
