Re: Occupation of Liquor Manufacturer for Orthodox Jew in 1840s #general

Dear Richard, dear community

On of several occupations of my g.g.grandfather in the
1840s in Giessen in the Hessen was that of liquor
manufacturer. Was this considered a respectable

example, how would an Orthodox Rabbi have viewed the
occupation of liquor manufacturer?
I'm doing some historical research on Jewish Communities near Giessen
(esp. Lollar, Mainzlar, Staufenberg, Daubringen and Treis). One jewish
family in Mainzlar (Kann) founded a liquor manufactory in the early 19th,
they also traded with liquor in the surrounding region. Later on the
family relocated the company to Giessen. I think it was a "respectable
occupation". Also I suppose, that this family like many others in Giessen
(and env.) in middle of the 19th could not be marked as "Orthodox". The
majority of jews in this region formed a growing "liberal" Jewish
Community.

Are there perhaps any relationships between the Kann family and your
g-g-gf?

Naming a Baby Boy "Brit" #general

Shafner <insert.my.last.name.here.instead@...>
 

Is there such a name "Brit"? I know the word, as most of us do, meaning
"covenant". But is there such a name?

Are there any suggestions for a masculine equivalent name to yiddish
femine name "Breindel"? "Breindel" means "brunette" or "brown". "Baruch"
begins with a beit, so that makes that name a likely candidate.

Thanks.

Help-Israeli Look up #general

Hafcjf@...
 

Hi! I'm hoping some Israeli Jewishgenner out there can do a phone
look-up for me or perhaps will know this family. We've been searching
for them for quite a while and, just today, I learned that they had
moved to Israel. I'm sorry, but I have no idea what city they live in.

The name is STATESMAN. First name is most likely Murray or Howard, but
could also be Gloria, Briana, Romany or Shari.

Murray STATESMAN was a physicist who was a professor in Seattle until the
family moved to Israel and we lost track of them. Murray was married to
Gloria nee STERNBERG (the daughter of Jack Sternberg and Hilda Flamholtz
Sternberg). Murray and Gloria had four children that we know of: Briana
Ellen, Howard, Romany and Shari.

Any information you can give on any of these individuals would be
appreciated. I am particularly interested in learning their addresses (my
phone bill is high).

Thanks in advance,

I'd put my money on Barukh (Boruch) -- unless it's a cute diminutive
of Ber (Dov-Ber).
