The 1901 UK census lists thirteen year old Jacob Pickholtz, a Russian subject
ands a student at the Hayes Industrial School. The parents do not seem to be in
the census and I presume that they were in Europe.

We know absolutely nothing about this young man - not who his parents were and
not what became of him. The census tells us nothing else, save that he suffered
from epilepsy >from birth. Furthermore, we have no record of any Pikholz
descendant (much less with the name itself) in UK other than one refugee >from
Vienna shortly before WWII.

Harold Pollins told me that the records >from the Hayes Industrial School were
held by the Finnart House School Trust, but they told me that any records they had
are now with the London Metropolitan Archives. The LMA advises that for that
period they have nothing at all on the Hayes Industrial School and that the annual
reports they have (>from 1902) do not have students' records.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I might find out more about this young man?
Either his parents or what became of him?

Re: SHNEYER ZALMAN questions.

Sandra Glazer Lake asked about the possibility of her family from
SKOPICHICK, Kovna Gubernia, Lithuania being descended >from the Chassidic
rebbe with that same name. I can't speak for her family but will say that
my family, >from the same area of Lithuania, used Shneyer Zalman as a family
name often. It is my understanding that it was an honor to carry the
rebbe's name rather than to note that you were a descendant.

At the 1996 Boston conference, I had the opportunity to ask author and
scholar, Dov Levin, about Chassidism in a mostly Mishnagdic Lithuania. And
he explained that northwest Lithuania, the area around Kupiskis, Rokiskis,
and Skapiskis, was heavily Chassidic.

Dear Ann,
your project sounds very interesting.
I don't know whether you have already included Felix
de Cola,born Felix Ginsberg, who was Cape Town's "King
of Jazz" in the thirties. Or his mother Edith
Mendelssohn who according to one of her former
students was a pianist who was also one of the best
sight readers in SA, also pre-war. If you need more
details, I will try to help as these people were
related to my mother. My father has a cousin, now in
New York, Renee Raff, who if memory sertves me well
used to accompany, as pianist, people such as Frank
Sinatra.

Best wishes >from Adam Yamey

SA Jews and Musicians #southafrica

Eli Rabinowitz
 

I missed Ann Rabinowitz's original email about SA Jews and Musicians -
please fill me in on what you are looking for.

I returned >from Sth Africa 3 weeks ago - my dad, Harry Rabinowitz, had
passed away on 15th October, aged 88.

I have many articles and programs about him >from the 30s onwards.

Here are some notes on my dad:

Cantor Harry Rabinowitz - Zvi Hersh ben Nachum Mendel

Coming >from a long line of musicians and chazanim, Harry was born in
1914 in Volksrust, Transvaal.
Apart >from his fine barotone voice, Harry was an accomplished pianist
and musician.
Based in Cape Town, Harry took leading parts in opera, radio and stage
productions.
During the 2nd World War, he was in great demand for troop shows.
Moving to Johannesburg in 1957, Harry made his mark as a chazan first at
the Oxford and then the Waverley shuls.

Highlights included:
singing before 15000 at Wembley Stadium (Jo'burg) in 1957 to honour the
visit of Gen. Moshe Dayan to South Africa.
producing a LP of yiddish melodies with Solly Aronowsky in 1959 - the
only South African chazan to appear on His Masters Voice - Red Label.

My dad's sister, the late Rachel Rabinowitz, was also a well known
concert pianist.

There was another Harry Rabinowitz >from Sth Africa who moved to London
in the 40s and became a famous conductor with the BBC orchestra.

I also have a photocopy of an article - Music and Musicians of
Doornfontein by Essie Aremband - very informative

Cheers
