Hi,
I've been trying to access the Ellis Island site, and for the past two
weeks all I get is a Network Error--unable to request URL >from host
www.ellisisland.org:80: Operation timed out messge. The same thing happens
when I try to get to the Stephen Morse site. Otherwise I can go anywhere on
the net I want to. I can understand the sites being busy, but for two weeks?
I've tried at various times of the day/night, too. Is this happening to
anyone else, or is my computer being weird?

Thanks for any suggestions!

The vilage you are researching is propbably the NAGYCSALOMJA - Hungarian, now VELKA CALOMIIJA, District of Velky Krtis, Slovakia. The name of former county should be HONT instead HUNT.

he village belonged to the SAHY - former IPOLYSAG Rabbinate. The Jewish records of SAHY incl. VELKA CALOMIJA are kept in Banska Bystrica and Nitra County Archives >from the period as follow :

births 1850 - 1949
marriages 1850 - 1947
deaths 1850 - 1947

| Dear List,
|
| Could someone please help me find Csolomai in the Hunt
County of Slovakia?
| Are there Jewish records for this town? My great
grandmother Maria Kohn was
| born there probably around 1890 - 1895.
|
| Researching family names: Gyemant and Kohn.

| Thank you.

http://www.bogardi.com/gen/g129.shtml I didn't see any
place name that looks like Csolomai. Also, check the 1877
Gazetteer at the Family History Library to see if there was
a shul in this place. If not, records prior to 1895 would
be maintained in a larger community nearby where the
residents went. Also check FHL catalog under Hont megye,
KisHont, and Gmor es KisHont to see if you can find this
place.

Re: Zfat's Ancient Cemetery #rabbinic

Samuel Shoshan <sshoshan@...>
 

Zfat, Sunday night

Friday morning I went to the ancient Zfat cemetery. Mordechai
Shababo, who tends the cemetery voluntarily, had taken a bucket of
water to douse a headstone in the cave and voila: My ggggrandfather,
Rav Eliyahu FRUCHTER's Matseva. In 1972, Mordechai, [who I am told
was once a boxer] was a champion fencer and a member of the Israeli
Olympic team destined for Munich. Shortly before flying there he
had a dream where God told him to do Teshuva, leave the team, move
to Zfat and take care of this ancient cemetery, which he did. It
probably saved his life when 11 of his Israeli teammates were
murdered by Palestinian terrorists.

I commissioned Matisyahu Kedar, who repairs Matzevot at the cemetery
to fill in ink into the 1864 letter carvings to make it more
legible.

Right next to the grave of Rav Eliyahu is the grave of the Ba’al
Levushe Srad. I investigated: he is Rav Dovid Shlomo Ivshitz,
considered a giant in Tora and Kabala, who came to Israel in 1809.
In Zfat he completed his masterpiece “Halacha, Levushe Srad” on
“Yore Dea” and “Arvei Nachal” a chasidic work on the Tora. He was
buried in this cave in 1814.

Right outside the cave is the headstone of Avrohom Dov of Avritch,
called the “Bas Ayin”. He was the head of the Chasidic community in
Zfat during the 1834 massacre by the Druze and the earthquake of
1837. The quake killed 90% of the people of Zfat and about two
thousand Jews. Many others were injured. Zfat had become a pile of
Stones. Almost all the synagogues had collapsed. During the quake,
at afternoon prayer, Rav Avrohom Dov yelled out “come to me” they
did and the domed ceiling under which they huddled did not fall,
while the rest of the Shul did. When he was 20 years old, in 1785,
he became the Rebbe of Avritch and stayed there for 40 years. In
1830 he left Russia and settled in Zfat. In 1839 Sir Moses
Montefiore visited Zfat and before leaving prayed the morning
service in the Avritch Shul. Zfat benefited >from Sir Moses’
philanthropy. In 1840 The Rebbe of Avritch died of the plague. The
records say he is buried in the cave.

Dr. Neil Rosenstein asked me if I knew of a web list for this
cemetery’s burials. I asked Mordechai Shababo If he knew of a
computerized list: He said that Shlomo Khadad, head of Zfat’s
“Moatza Datit’ had computerized a list. But then he said with a
smile that his brain is a good computer and they often come to him
when they can’t find a kever.

The Safed Foundation, as I was reminded by Mr. Simcha Goldstein [via
Ravsig], has on its web [ www.safedfound.org.il ] the listings of
burials. It is obviously incomplete and is mostly for the 20th
century graves. Even though Rav FRUCHTER’s headstone clearly states
the name Eliyahu and as >from Overvisheve [Marmorosh] and his
father’s name Shlomo, it is not listed.

On the climb upward I stopped to pay my respects at the Kever of the
ARI [Yitskhak Luria: died at the early age of thirty-eight, in an
epidemic which raged in Zfat in 1572] and right alongside, the kever
of Shlomo Halevi Alkabetz [d: 1580/1583]. Rav Alkabets was born in
Salonica around 1500 and arrived in Zfat about 1535. He was a
teacher to his Cabbalist brother-in-law Rav Moshe Cordovero
[1522-1570] and Rav Yosef Karo [author of the Beis Yosef and the
Shulkhan Arukh: born in Spain in 1488; arrived in Zfat in 1536.
Lived to the age of 87.]

Few poems gained popularity as quickly as Alkabetz’s "Lecha Dodi,
which is sung on Friday nights. The letters of his name appear in
the first eight stanzas. Friday evening at the Breslev Shul, I
looked at the sunset and thought of him when we sang it. I have
heard that Rav Alkabetz and his circle of mystics would stand on a
promontory of Zfat, facing the sunset, and sing it [to hear the
popular American tune, click on:
http://www.jrf.org/amhaskpa/Jewish_music.htm ].

Rav Yitskhak Luria, Known as the ARIZAL, was the son of Shlomo
Luria. The first Luria apparently was Rav Shimshon Luria, who
served as Royal Physician to the king of France. The king awarded
him a house on the River Loire, hence the surname. Rav Shlomo was
probably a descendant. He came to Israel >from Lithuania, following
his teacher Rav Kolonymus >from Brisk. Life under Suleiman, the
Turkish Sultan, was also safer. On arriving in Yerushalayim they
found an impoverished Jewish community of about 600 people. There
were so few Ashkenazim there that the newcomers had it added to
their name. Yitskhak’s father became known as Shlomo Luria
Ashkenazi.

Come and visit Zfat; you will love it.

Book Review: Meorei Galicia (Encyclopedia of Galician Sages) #general

Seflaum@...
 

Book Review in the Rav-SIG Online Journal...
"Meorei Galicia: Encyclopedia Lekhakhmei Galicia" (Encyclopedia of Galician
Sages), Jerusalem, Israel, 1978-1997
Author: Rabbi Meir Wunder
Reviewed by: Chaim Freedman

This five-volume work is one of the most extensive and reliable sources of
rabbinical genealogy written in the twentieth century. The geographic area
covered in "Meorei Galicia" is today divided between southern Poland and
western Ukraine.

As Freedman writes:

"The spiritual shepherds of Galicia were not systematically recorded in the
annals of Jewish history...Therefore there arose the need to fill the void
by creating a tool which would be a guide and point of reference for all
those who enquire about Galician rabbis and their familial relationships. It
was not with a light heart that Rabbi Wunder took upon himself the awesome
task of immortalizing Galician rabbinic scholarship."

The article provides a detailed description of the contents of this work and
contains a sample of the type of information that may found: a translation

Book Review in the Rav-SIG Online Journal...
"Meorei Galicia: Encyclopedia Lekhakhmei Galicia" (Encyclopedia of Galician
Sages), Jerusalem, Israel, 1978-1997
Author: Rabbi Meir Wunder
Reviewed by: Chaim Freedman

This five-volume work is one of the most extensive and reliable sources of
rabbinical genealogy written in the twentieth century. The geographic area
covered in "Meorei Galicia" is today divided between southern Poland and
western Ukraine.

As Freedman writes:

"The spiritual shepherds of Galicia were not systematically recorded in the
annals of Jewish history...Therefore there arose the need to fill the void
by creating a tool which would be a guide and point of reference for all
those who enquire about Galician rabbis and their familial relationships. It
was not with a light heart that Rabbi Wunder took upon himself the awesome
task of immortalizing Galician rabbinic scholarship."

The article provides a detailed description of the contents of this work and
contains a sample of the type of information that may found: a translation
of part of the AUERBACH family's entries. For those unfamiliar with the
terminology and abbreviations used in these translations, links to Rav-SIG's
Glossary and Famous Rabbis pages are provided at the end of the article.

Deportation Of Polish Jews From Germany, 1938. #germany

Willie Glaser
 

This coming October 28, 2002 will be the 64th anniversary of the
deportation of Polish Jews residing in Germany to Poland.

On October 28, 1938 some 17,000 Jews with Polish citizenship were suddenly
expelled >from Germany to Poland.

On October 29, the Polish authorities closed the border, the German
authorities had to turn around two trains full with men, women and children
and returning them to their home cities.
Most people pushed over the border perished in the Holocaust.

I am establishing a web site to commemorate this historical event.
If you are or know of survivors of these transports please contact me
privately.

Steve Morse's one-step to EIDB form improved upon again #galicia

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

Title: Steve Morse's one-step EIDB form has been improved (again)

A couple of days ago I announced that Steve's blue (Jewish Passenger)
one-step form can re-sort the text version of the manifest so that
adjacent lines are together (the Ellis Island site presents the lines
all scrambled). Well I just noticed that Steve now provides that same
feature with his white (all passenger) search form. Furthermore, the
display of the results >from his white form has been changed so that it
now looks just like the results >from his blue form, making it much
easier to work with. That means you can get >from those results to the
manifest in just "one step" -- no need to first fetch the passenger
record on the way to seeing the manifest.

Steve tells me that he can't take any of the credit for this. All the
credit goes to Yves Goulnik in Switzerland who has performed two major
miracles in the seven days that he has been working with Steve.

To see the new format, go to Steve's white search form at

http://home.pacbell.net/spmorse/ellis/ellis.html


and start your search by clicking on the button that reads "search (new
format)". If you liked the old format better, Steve still has a button
to generate that as well.

Again, please if you have any questions or comments, please direct them
to Steve Morse. You can find his e-mail address on his websites.

Good hunting!
