Jewish Heritage Europe Reports on Azores Synagogue and Archives Dedication and Lithuania Maceva Report #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Jewish Heritage Europe reported on two items that might be of interest to you:

1. Synagogue in Azores Restored and Rededicated as Jewish Museum and Archives

Shaar Hashomayum Synagogue in Ponta Delgada, Azores, Portugal was been rededicated
on April 23 and renovated and will serve as a museum and archive devoted to Jewish
history of the Azores.

The synagogue was last used in in the 1950's. The Lisbon Jewish Community donated
the synagogue to Ponta Delgado City Hall on a 99-year concession in exchange for
guarantees that it would be restored.

Ponta Delgada, on the island of San Miguel, is the capital of the Azores.There were
once five synagogues in the city, but Shaar Hashomayum Synagogue,is the only
one that remains. It was built around 1820 and consecrated in 1836 - the oldest
synagogue in Portugal built after the Inquisition.

Re: [gersig]FROMMER - Found passenger list #germany

If those were the names of those people at birth, then it's extremely
unlikely that they were born Jewish. Note that these are mostly names of
first-line Christian saints, names that were not popular among Jews.
(Across the river in the Palatinate/Pfalz, Nicolaus and Catharina might
have received their given names >from the official French list of
acceptable given names, but this was not the practice in Baden.)

Converts would very likely have chosen a new surname as well. FROMMER
did exist among German Jews, but only in the eastern regions of Prussia
now in Poland. There are hundreds of FROMMERs and thousands of FROMMs in
today's Germany (see telephone directories, for instance); which is to
say that it was not in any sense a distinctively Jewish name.

Conversions *to* Judaism were quite rare, though they did happen. You
might consult the archives in Baden-Wuerttemberg to see whether they
have records of such events.
