Rebbe Elimelech's Mausoleum #rabbinic

Asher Bar-Zev <barzev@...>
 

I know that an ohel or mausoleum building has been erected over the
grave of the Rebbe Elimelech of Lezajsk in that town in Poland.

I am most anxious to acquire a photo of the ohel. If anyone has a
photo of that ohel, I would greatly appreciate receiving it as an
attachment to an email. (I can read any photo format readable by
Adobe Photoshop). Alternatively, any information as to where such a
photo is published (books, magazine articles, etc.) would also be
greatly appreciated.

Private replies are welcome.

Learning to read Hebrew #general

MBernet@...
 

The ability to read Hebrew--even just to decipher the letters--is a great
asset to anyone engaged in Jewish genealogy.

The National Jewish Outreach Program teaches Hebrew reading in four or
five session, I believe without charge. Lessons are usually schedule for
the period before Passover and the period before the Jewish New Year, and
take place at hundreds of locations simultaneously. They will probably be
starting a new series about now. You can find them at www.njop.org, or
call 1-800-44-HEBRE.

My only connection with NJOP is that some of my friends learned to read
Hebrew through their program, and that I make occasional small donations
to them (which means that I get various mailings). I believe there is no
charge for the Hebrew courses

Names of Jewish Medics Killed in 1877-78 Russian-Turkish War #general

vladimir dvoretzky <dvoretzky@...>
 

Dear Genners,
A few days ago I mentioned that there is a Doctors'
Monument in downtown Sofia (the capital of Bulgaria)
dedicated to the meidics >from the Russian Army killed
in the 1877-78 war, and that a lot of the names
written on it are Jewish.
Below you can find approx. a quarter of those
Jewish-sounding names which I jotted down on the way
to my office. Keep in mind that this is the whole info
and that you cannot tell whether the deceased is a
paramedic, a nurse or a doctor. I have transliterated
the names >from Russian Cyrillic so the English version
may be different >from your family name.

Searching HELLMAN, Max/Mordechai, Mary/Miriam #lithuania

Rlberliner@...
 

I am still trying to help my cousin find his grandfather, Max HELLMAN. We
believe he was born in Russia or Prussia. He had a sister who was known as
Mary but her Hebrew name could have been Miriam. Max' Hebrew name was
probably Mordechai.

We know Max married Annie JACOBS >from Poznan who immigrated to London and
then to the U.S. >from 1879 to 1882. She lived in Baltimore and we believe
married there and she and Max later moved to Brooklyn and the Bronx in NY.
Their first child was Abraham Joseph HELLMAN, born in 1889 in Baltimore. They had 6 living children.

I have received replies >from wonderful genners with suggestions of searching the 1910,1920 and 1930 census. One was even kind enough to search for us and she did, in fact, find this family on the 1910 census herself and forward the information.

This continued search is to try to find Max's country of origin and obtain a birth certificate, in addition to checking with Baltimore, MD to find a
marriage license. There is that possibility that with Baltimore being so
Yiddishkite, and the family being Orthodox, that they got married in the
synagogue, probably Aitz Chaim which included Annie's parents, Joseph and
Rachel, as among the founders. They may not even have gotten a civil marriage license, but we hope they did. Aitz is now defunct but we are checking records in the Baltimore Jewish Archives and History Museum.

If any of these names appear on your family tree, or are familiar to you in any way, please contact me privately. It will be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Excerpts from THE ROSEN LEGACY on the LitvakSIG Online Journal #lithuania

Judith27
 

Dear LitvakSIGdom ~

The LitvakSIG Online Journal is proud to present excerpts >from the novel, THE ROSEN LEGACY, by Claire L. Datnow.

As the author writes in her synopsis:

"The Rosen Legacy weaves a complex tapestry that ranges across time and space, chronicling the fate of nine generations of Rosens and the Torah they inherit. Through the lives of its custodians the Torah becomes entangled in astonishing and brutal events shaping the fate of a family, a people, and a nation. At the heart of the novel is an intriguing question: how does a family's sacred legacy shape the identity of those who inherit it?

The story begins at the turn of the eighteenth century, when Samuel
Rosen, the innkeeper of Valinsk, Lithuania, commissions a Torah to fulfill a vision that has grafted itself to his mind so tenaciously that he's dreamed of it every night. The novel ends two hundred years later when, in an ironic twist of fate, Natalie Rosen, his great-great-great granddaughter, accidentally destroys it. Horrified by what she has wrought, she uses twenty-first century technology to resurrect the Torah in a way that Samuel Rosen could never have imagined - even in his wildest dreams."
