JewishGenMal's Passover Specials #hungary

With Chanukah behind us, can Passover be very far ahead? Not according to
the JewishGenMall managers who have a spectacular array of Passover books,
gifts, software and videos ready and waiting for you to visit the Mall and
take a look at this fabulous selection.

Just to give you some idea of the range of items.... we have the famous
"Survivor's Hagadah", created in the winter of 1945-46 by Holocaust
survivors in displaced persons camps around Munich. This is an
extraordinary illustrated haggadah prepared for the first Passover after
liberation. Now the Jewish Publication Society is proud to issue this
facsimile edition, previously translated into English and published by the
American Jewish Historical Society only as a limited edition. Interwoven
with the traditional Passover liturgy are two stories: that of the
deliverance of the Pharoah in Egypt, and the Holocaust story of those Jews
who survived Hitler.

There is also a variety of other fascinating Hagadahs including
(especially for the computer cognizant among us) CD-Rom Hagadahs and
Software for both Windows and Mac users <grin>

Would you believe even the rugrats are getting into the swing of
things.....Passover videos for kids..."A Rugrats Passover" Speaking of
Passover gifts for kids, you'll find "A Treasury of Sholom Aleichim
Children's Stories" and the classic Passover song illustrated and hand
lettered "One Little Goat-Had Gadya"

Last, but certainly not least the Mall has some wonderful gift items
including "Chagall: Love and the Stage: 1914-1922"; "The Illustrated Torah"
with wonderful conemporary illustrations by Micahel Meron ; and the
anthology "In Every Generation: A Treasury of Inspiration for Passover and
the Seder"

Much much more....too numerous to list here...this message was just to give
you a taste of what is in the mall, awaiting your visit to
http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgenmall/

And please remember that your purchases in the Mall help support the
JewishGen Operations budget.

APOLOGY Re: "Ellis Island v. Castle Gardens" #belarus

Elsebeth Paikin
 

I want to apologize to you all, but in particularly to Marian Levine.

I didn't do my job as moderator well, because yesterday I sent
out a message in reply to Marian Levine's message of 02-12-01,
That I should either have rejected, or sent it back to the sender
for rephrasing, -- or I should at least have deleted some paragraphs
that were very unfriendly, ansolutely unwarranted and and definitely
a kind of language that is not acceptable to this -- or any other --
mailing list.

I don't know how it happened. Maybe I was interrupted by the
telephone or something and thought I had read it -- I don't
recall. But I made a blunder and sent it out....

Chastising newcomers is way out of line. We have all been
beginners and often gotten the help >from more experienced
researchers. Even when we ourselves get more experienced in
some areas, we can still be beginners/inexpererienced in
other areas.

I am moderator of this list and editor of the Newsletter,
but I can tell for sure, that I am *not* an expert. And I have
surely also asked questions that were stupid, and to which the
answer was right there in front of me.

I am truly sorry!

I am constantly puzzled by the failure of many, perhaps even most, SIG
mail group subscribers to explore the offerings at Jewishgen as well as
those on the Internet. Of course, no one and nothing requires me to judge
whether this failure arises >from a single-mindedness which inhibits people
from looking for information elsewhere than within a group which focuses
on a particular area, or whether this failure stems >from their laziness,
ignorance, time limitations, inability to access to the Internet, failure
to develop the life-long habit of reading books, or >from some other infirmity.

So for answers which I do not retain in my head or which I cannot find in
my personal library, or at my local public or university library, I just go
on trying be patient with people and to answer their questions as best I
can, pointing to available sources of information whether they exist in
books, at Jewishgen or on the Internet.

Subject: Yad Vashem and Pinkas HaKehillot
From: Joyce Field <jfield@indy.net>
Date: Tue, 13 Feb 2001 13:16:29 -0500
X-Message-Number: 1

Folks,

Many of you will remember when the Translation Project first began in
the Fall of 1997. We had high hopes that we would be permitted by
Yad Vashem to post translations >from the Pinkas HaKehillot on the our
web site. We were allowed to put one translation online but no
others. But dozens of translations were sent to me which we could
not post.

I am delighted to tell you that Yad Vashem, the copyright holder of
the Pinkasim, will now grant JewishGen permission to put
translations >from the Pinkas HaKehillot online. There are two
conditions, however.
1) I must make a request for each individual chapter so that Yad
Vashem can keep track of what is going online.
2) JewishGen must provide a link to the Yad Vashem website for the
translations.

In order to manage what I anticipate will be a flood of requests, I
would appreciate donors following this procedure.
-inform me of the chapter name, volume and page numbers of the
chapter you will be translating
-when I receive permission, I will then ask you to submit the
translation and your signed donor agreements.

I ask that you have patience as the Director of the Yad Vashem
publications department is extremely busy and replies to emails are
not always received as rapidly as we would like. I must also remind
you that all requests have to come through me as the representative
of JewishGen. Yad Vashem simply cannot cope with individuals making
these requests on their own.

I am sure that you are as excited as I am about this opportunity to
have translations of the Pinkasim online on JewishGen.

Dear Adam.

I think that Yehuda was compared to "Gur Arie" (lion cub).
Arie, as an image, is found in few of the bible's prophet's sayings.
Mainly it is a soubriquet for great enemy of our tribe, like in
Jeremiah, chapter 4/7: "The lion has come up >from his thicket, and
the destroyer of the nations is on his way; he has gone out >from his
place to make your land desolate; and your cities shall be laid waste,
without inhabitant."

So I think that it's a general name for any great nation >from the
East (they came >from the North since there is a great desert between
Mesopothamia and Eretz Yisrael), like Assyria; Babylonia, and more.
Persia was an exceptional, since our tribe was sent by Koresh, the
king of Persia, to rebuild the kingdom. Therefor, the Lion, had sent
his cub, to grow up in the "YAHAD" province, until he became a Lion,
in Alexander Yanai's period.

Best regards.

Sibling no. 2: Hebrew/sacred given name: Arieh, a kinnui to Yehuda
based on the Biblical story where Yehuda is compared to a lion,
"aryeh" in Hebrew
Sibling no. 3: Hebrew/sacred given name: Leyb, a translation of Arieh
to Yiddish and considered a sacred name even if it's a not a Hebrew
name.
------------------
Dear Adam.

I think that Yehuda was compared to "Gur Arie" (lion cub).
Arie, as an image, is found in few of the bible's prophet's sayings.
Mainly it is a soubriquet for great enemy of our tribe, like in
Jeremiah, chapter 4/7: "The lion has come up >from his thicket, and
the destroyer of the nations is on his way; he has gone out >from his
place to make your land desolate; and your cities shall be laid waste,
without inhabitant."

So I think that it's a general name for any great nation >from the
East (they came >from the North since there is a great desert between
Mesopothamia and Eretz Yisrael), like Assyria; Babylonia, and more.
Persia was an exceptional, since our tribe was sent by Koresh, the
king of Persia, to rebuild the kingdom. Therefor, the Lion, had sent
his cub, to grow up in the "YAHAD" province, until he became a Lion,
in Alexander Yanai's period.

Best regards.

HEADS UP, Moving Day for JewishGen! #latvia

For immediate release to all mailing lists and discussion groups:

Lyris (our mailing list program) will be brought down at 9 a.m. central
time Wednesday Feb 14th as part of the JewishGen move to new facilities.
This means that no mail will be going in or out for any of the JewishGen
SIGs, Research or Study Groups or any of the hosted organizations mailing
lists. The JewishGen Discussion Group is also involved.

The physical move for all the equipment will take place beginning about 11
a.m. on Wednesday, and while we estimate somewhere between two and four
hours downtime, there is no way to be certain. One thing we do know for
certain and cannot emphasize strongly enough.

Not only was this an unanticipated move, therefor **unbudgeted** there has
been an extraordinary 33% increase in usage over the last few months. Last
year we were all exhilerated and tremendously gratified at seeing a fairly
constant monthly hit rate of 3 million visitors to the JewishGen website .
The January 2001 stats showed nearly 4 million hits....3,962,394 to be
exact!

Numbers like that indicate that increased bandwidth will be needed very
soon in order to keep our JewishGen information highway open and available
to all as a public service.

If you have not made a donation to JewishGen recently, **now** is the time.
We need to pay for the move, we need to be able to pay for whatever
technical support will be required to get us up and running at our new
location, our monthly costs will be rising based on the need for increased
bandwidth....what else can we list to encourage our user base to become
part of our financial support base. Less than 2500 financial supporters
cannot continue to hold up 10 times their number in the user base.

So, we urge that those of you who have never ever donated whatever you can
afford to keep JewishGen alive and viable, please, do it now.

Many thanks for your anticipated support
