Philip Harwitz #general

Gareth Barr <garethbarr1@...>
 

Dear Sir/Madam

My name is Gareth Barr and my JewishGen ID number is 727528
I have been trying to find out what happened or became of my Great
Uncle Philip Harwitz but have been having great difficulty in doing
so. I have searched Ancestry family website but to no avail. He came
over to Scotland >from Lithuania in 1905 at the age of 7 years old. He
then emigrated to America in 1915. I have found a document saying he
was at the Bucks National Farm School in 1918 and 1919. It appears he
is not on the 1920 and 1930 Cencus, so i am not sure if he has maybe
moved country or possibly changed his name. He had a brother Michael
and sister Annie(Harwitz)Shulman who emigrated to the Maryland
district. I have an old aunty who has mentioned he may have been
killed in the Spanish War of 1936, but i cant pick up any information
on this. I would be very grateful for any help you could give me with my search.

My email address is gareth.barr@hotmail.co.uk

This week's Yizkor book excerpt on the JewishGen Facebook page #general

Bruce Drake <BDrake@...>
 

The title of this week's excerpt >from the Yizkor book of Mikulince in western
Ukraine tells the story: "A Baby Girl Captured by the Gentiles." The author, Zalman
Pelz, and several members of his family survived the destruction of the town by the
Germans and were later taken to a camp in Siberia by the Russians. When Jews were
allowed to return to Poland after the liberation, Pelz learned as he embarked on
the trip that his sister, realizing her end was at hand in the ghetto, gave her
daughter to a Polish woman on the condition that the child would be given back if
any member of the family had survived. The story then takes a long and torturous
path, but I won't spoil the ending.

Re: Former Baltimore Synagogue #general

Carol Rombro Rider
 

David--There were three synagogues that operated on McCulloh Street:

1501-1505 McCulloh Street Chizuk Amuno Synagogue
2022 McCulloh Street Mishkan Israel Synagogue
2105-07 McCulloh Street Shearith Israel Synagogue

It appears that you are referring to Mishkan Israel Synagogue.

David Rosen suggested the website http://www.kilduffs.com/Synagogues.html

If you scroll down, you can see if this is indeed the one you are searching for.
More information can be obtained >from the Jewish Museum of Maryland (see their
website). They published a book "Synagogues, Temples and Congregations of Maryland
1830-1990" written by Earl Pruce.

Best wishes,

<<I came upon a Masonic Temple in the 2000 block of McCulloh Street in Baltimore
that appears to have been a synagogue. The central window has been partially
covered over, but the uncovered part clearly shows a Jewish star. And there is a
carving of the 10 commandments at the top. I'd love to find out about the history
of this synagogue...
