Go to your nearest public library, and ask the lady how to search The
New York Times (which is the newspaper of record for much of what
happens in the United States, and certainly for New York). If there
was a campaign for the man's election, he was likely discussed in the
papers.

Jews in the Liquor Industry #general

IsraelP <zach4v6@...>
 

There was a recent discussion in this group about
the role of Jews in the liquor industry in the old
country. Beer and alcohol were indeed very much
Jewish-dominated business in much of Russia.
There is a slim volume called "Heshetiyya KaDat" by Yehudah Leib
Lipkind, published in 1898, discussing many aspects of alcoholic
beverages, including the new laws and licensing regulations issued
by Czarist Russia. The book is in Hebrew and I have seen it at the
National Library in Jerusalem. (The book can be used only in the
library and must be ordered >from the closed stacks.)

Re: Etymology #general

Brandler Institute of Chasidic Thought <bict@...>
 

Ury Link and others have correctly pointed out that I miswrote when I
boldly asserted that "Feivush" was never ever called "Phoebus" - and I
stand corrected.
I did not know that there is actual examples of a Feivush Phoebus in the
1600's and possibly as late as the 1700's. I am grateful Ury and others
pointing it out to me.
Nonetheless, at the risk of sounding stubborn, I think that those of us
researching more recent ancestors in the 1800's and 1900's should recognize
that it is extremely unlikely (I now rightfully far the word never) finding
a Feivush using the name Phoebus.
Regarding Mr. Link's referance to Shprintza - my point was not the origin
of the name but rather if there was anyone (at least in the past 200 years)
named Esperantsa Shprintsa. Somehoe I still doubt it.

Mr. Link is one hundred percent correct that in such circumstances one
should never say never, it was somehow the image of the many Feivushe's
that I have interviewed, or whose lives I have spent so many months
researching, and the certain knowledge of the deep seated aversion that
these Chasidic men would have to being lumped together with a Greek and
Hellenistic sounding name like Phoebus that caused me to respond like I
did. Perhaps had they been told that according to Encycolpedia Judaica the
father of the Beis Shmuel was also called Phoebus - they would not have
minded either. As I have pointed out in private responses - I am sure that
there were many wondeful Jews named Phoebus and many a wondeful Jewess
named Esperantsa - my point is only whether they were also known as Feivush
and Shprintsa.

Etymology #general

Ury Link <uryl@...>
 

Dear Genners,
In his letter to the Jewishgen wrote Mr Abraham Heschel:

However a "Shprintsa" was never ever
called "Esperantsa" and "Feivush" was never ever called "Phoebus".>>

How you can use the term "Never ever" in a letter,it mean that you are sure
that the combination of the name Feivush and Phoebus never existed. I must
to disappointed you In the book "Shemot Hazadikim" (Names of the Zadikim)
,based on the revelation by the great Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, complied
and published in 1819 by Rabbi Nathan of Breslov on page 469 I find the
next name: Shemuel ben Rabbi Uri Shraga Feivush,the author of the well
known commentary on the "Shulchan Aruch" the "Beit Shemuel". In the
Encyclopaedia Judaica the same name is :Shemuel ben Rabbi Shraga Phoebus,
in the "Beit Shemuel" is also written the name Phoebus. Another example is
Rabbi Uri Feivush ben Rabbi Yosvil >from Amsterdam that is also know as Uri
Phoebus. another sample is Uri Sheraga Phoebus (c. 1640-1707) headed a
yeshivah in Prague. In some books he is know as Uri Feivush. I can give
more samples but I thing that it is enough. With the names Esperantsa and
Sprintsa I look in the book "Namen der Juden" by Zunz,Leipzig 1837 on page
73 and this great Jewish Scholar write that: Shprintsa is a diminution of
Esperanza . This given name Esperanza is derived >from the the Latin word
Sperare what mean "hope". The name come to North France and Germany through
the Provance in the middle ages. >from Esperanza we get also the names
Shprinzel (In the book "Beit Shemuel") and Shfrinza. In Frankfurt Am Main
in Germany in 1354 on a gravestone is finding the name Shpriniz and also
was the name Esperanza in use in Germany in the same time, my source is
"Alten Frankfurter Friedhof" by Dr M.Horovitz,Frankfurt 1901.In France is
the name Esperance and in Italien Speranza.
my conclusion is, pleas don't use the term "Never Ever" .I respect every
letter to the Jewishgen and I respect also every meaning and I learned a
lot >from letters and also >from Etymologys of names that friends of
Jewishgen are published in the Jewishgen.
Thanks and Best regards
