Would anyone out there have any idea what synagogues these rabbis

Hebrew Character Set #general

barrychernick@...
 

Does anyone know of an available Hebrew Character set. I do not need a
Hebrew Font package; I have found several available on the Internet. I
do not want to produce documents in Hebrew. I would like to be able to
insert a few Hebrew characters into a word processor document (eg. MS
Word) just as is done with characters used in scientific formulas needing
Greek letters and other special characters.

Please respond privately.

Help - Place Named Horda, Ukraine #general

barrychernick@...
 

On a ships passenger list for the Ryndam, December 11, 1906, the place of
birth for a cousin is given as Horda. It is very clearly written, the
only letter in doubt would be the first letter which looks like a capital
H, but might be some combination I do not recognize. This is the birth
place of a young child, about 3 years old, who was travelling with his
mother. Both lived in the area around StaroKonstantinov, Ukraine. The
Shtetl finder did not give me any good ideas with either an H or a G as a
first letter.
I would appreciate some other ideas.
Thanks

There seem to be an inordinate number of replies posted to the group that
appear to be intended for one reader only. Not only is the content very
specific with little or no interest for the group at large, many of these
messages address someone by name in the salutation, leading me to conclude
that the intent was not to respond to the entire list.

Please remember that although the Sender appears to be the individual who
posted the message, in some e-mail programs hitting *Reply* distributes the
message to the entire list. Please consider this before responding.

There are so many messages coming in each day >from the larger JewishGen

Zhitomer #ukraine

Joan Rosen <jrosen@...>
 

In response to Barbara Harris' posting about her relative's burial in the
plot belonging to Tferes Israel Anshei Zhitomer...

Yes, it was a congregation in Phila. at the end of the 19th and at least at
the beginning of the 20th century. My great-grandfather belonged to that
congregation and thus for a while we thought he came >from Zhitomer, but as
it turned out, he emigrated >from Novograd Volinsk, a smaller town not far
from Zhitomer. There apparently was no group >from N.V. large enough to form
a congregation here, so he became part of a group >from place geographically
close to his home town. This, I believe, was a common practice.

Don't assume you relative came >from Zhitomer itself, unless, of course, you
have other evidence.
