Hebrew/Yiddish for "Lawrence" #general

Udi Cain
 

There are 21 Levi Kohens' / Cohens' who are listed in the Yellow pages of
Israel. I'm sure that there are more who are not listed.
A possible reason for not calling many Cohens' after Levi, because most of
the Jewish people are aware to the fact that the Cohens' were the priests
who served the god in the temple, while the Levis' just helped the Cohens'
(did the unskilled labor).

Regards. Udi Cain. Jerusalem.

I agree with Judith Romney Wegner in principle, that there's no
logical reason why a Kohen should not have the given name Levi.

I decided to do a little bit of home statistical analysis on the most
recent Jerusalem area (02) telephone directory.In Israel, most of
the adult population list themselves in the directories.

Searching:GOLDENBERG & BLAIR #general

colin <easdon.ellis@...>
 

Dear List

I'm writing in the hope that someone out there can help me in regards to
finding information about my Grandmother, Who is called Aida GOLDENBERG.
Her date of birth I do not know. Here is a short story of what I know.

Aida GOLDENBERG married John BLAIR in Cairo ( Egypt) in the year 1923 at
the British Consulate. John was at the time serving in the r.a.f. Aida's
father attended the wedding his name was Israel GOLDENBERG and he was a
Dentist in the Cairo area. I know john and Aida left Egypt and moved to
Scotland on or around 1924. They then moved to a town called Hendon in
London, I know they had two daughters called Edith and Irene. For some
reason the moved back to Scotland, the date I do not know. I have been
told that Aida and her two daughters spent some time in France, about
two years, dates unknown.

Aida had a sister in France ( Marseilles ), I do not know her name.
I know that Aida and her daughters came back to Scotland in the year 1930,
and that she returned to France without her daughters the same year.

My searching for information so far is writing to 32 GOLDENBERG'S resident
in France, no information returned. Wrote the British Consulate in Egypt,
they could only tell me that Aida had not applied for a passport with
them, I can only assume that she had one already. I've looked at r.a.f.
records. I do know that Aida was a Russian Subject. Is it true if a Jewish
woman married outside her faith, that she would be some sort of outcast
from her family ? How would I go about finding out what passage Aida would
have used >from Scotland to France in the year 1930 ? The only document I
have is a marriage Cert of John and Aida.

Thankyou in advance for your help.

SONNENSCHEIN/COHEN from Siedlce on ViewMate #general

R Rose <singsong@...>
 

I've uploaded a B/W photo (my file number is VM076) of my paternal
grandfather's family. The elders are Joseph SONNENSCHEIN and Rose Cohen
SONNENSCHEIN. I believe the youngest boy in the center to be Max
SONNENSCHEIN, who immigrated to NYC in 1905/6 at approximately 21 years of
age with his wife Rose KRAVITZ SONNENSCHEIN and their daughter Anna.

Any leads or suggestions are most welcome.

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

richard may
 

Dear Jewishgen 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
occupation or otherwise among the Orthodox Jewish
community in the 1840s in the Hessen(Germany)? For
example, how would an Orthodox Rabbi have viewed the
occupation of liquor manufacturer?

Thank you for your help.

Friedman family search #hungary

Louis Schonfeld <Lmagyar@...>
 

Forwarded >from a message by Dorothy Falarski - Falarski@aol.com

While "Friedman" was known as a generic name given to Jewish families in the
18th or 19th century, I am, nonetheless, trying to locate descendants of
Herman Friedman, whose last known address was 433 Graham Avenue in Brooklyn.
He had three daughters: Carrie, Lily and Jennie, who would probably be in
their 70's or 80's today.

Herman was the younger brother of my grandfather Wolf (Wilhelm ) Friedmann
who died in Soloc (Slavkovce) Hungary in 1924.

Except for my mother and two of her sisters who emigrated in the 20's, the
rest of the Friedman(n)s were killed in the war. I only found out about
this
surviving bvranch of the family on a recent visit to a cousin who said she
met them all when she was very young.

Any leads or comments will be helpful

Thank you.
