The Children of Nathana Nuty and Feige Aptowitzer #rabbinic

Stanley and Shelda Sandler
 

Dear Genners:

I am searching for the names of the children of Nathana Nuta APTOWITZER and
Feige (maiden name unknown) APTOWITZER. Two of their children were named
Aron Isak (aka "Arnitcha") APTOWITZER and Benzion APTOWITZER. There may
have been seven other siblings whose names are unknown to my generation.

Nathana Nuta and Feige are my 3 x's Great-Grandparents (my
ggg-grandparents). They lived in Galicia, possibly in the town of Zborow
in Tarnopol Gubernia. At the time of their son Benzion's death in 1902,
Nathana Nuta and Feige were deceased.

Benzion Aptowitzer (spelled Abtowitzer on his death record) died in the town
of Zloczow on 26 July 1902. His death record indicates he is >from the town
of Zborow and is the son of deceased parents Nathana Nuty Abtowitzer (sic)
and Feigi Abtowitzer (sic). He was, according to the death record, 74 years
old at the time of his death. He was buried in the town of Zloczow on 28
July 1902. If the information on the death record is accurate, I would
place Benzion's birth during the year of 1828.

I am searching for the names of Benzion's unknown siblings (sons and
daughters of Nathana Nuta and Feige) in order to add the information to my
family history.

I am also trying to determine whether there is any relationship between my
Aptowitzer family and the renowned Rabbi Avigdor (Victor) Aptowitzer, also
from Galicia. A biography about Rabbi Avigdor Aptowitzer may be found in
the book Morei Galicia; however, there is no reference to siblings.

Thank you in advance.

(Portugal-Azores) Historic Synagogue Rededicated After Renovation--Museum and Archive on Jews of Azores #sephardic

Jan Meisels Allen
 

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.

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.

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Dear JRI-Poland subscribers:

JewishGen's Yizkor-Books-In-Print Project has just published the
translation of the Stawiski Yizkor Book. The book includes all
the photographs and illustrations. I am the translation coordinator
for the Stawiski Yizkor Book. The book is 406 pages and has
additional photographs not included in the original printing.

The book lists for $49.95 but Amazon.com is selling the book for around
$36.00. If Amazon advertises it as a "used" book, that is not true as it
only came out in April 2015. Purchase the lowest price book "used" or
not.
As it is printed on demand they really can't run out. However, if you
want to purchase a minimum of 5 books or more, JewishGen has a special
price of $25 per book which includes shipping--in the US and other pricing
is available outside of the US...gifts for your family, your society
library, the local holocaust center etc. To take advantage of this
special pricing, contact Joel Alpert, Yizkor Books In Print Coordinator,

I have an ancestor named Christine! (That was in the Pfalz, and she

Joseph is a bit different, having been one of the 12 tribes, and the one
who went down into Egypt, etc. There are also saints named David and Jude.
