A family memoir states that family members moved >from Orla, Poland and

ideas to what dorf or shtetl this might be?
Most probably this is a corrupted version of the settlement Antoniuk,
currently a North suburb of Bialystok.

Yisrael of Ostrogh-19th cent. #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

Several months ago someone, I presume, on this list sent me copies of
a sefer, in Hebrew, mentioning several rabbanim/sofrim who may have
been my ggggrandfather , Yisrael of Ostrogh, who was a Chosid of the
Apta Rov (Heschel) and who was also a mechutan of the Admo"r of
Lechowitz (Reb Aharon and Pearl).

As we recently moved and most of my previous material are hidden in
boxes, if anyone on this list was the sender, I'd appreciate getting
the pages again.

If anyone has any more information on my ancestor, Yisrael of Ostragh,
who made aliya to Tzfat during the first half of the 19th cent. I'd be
happy to hear >from you.

Shabbat shalom

you can see the invitation and photographs of the event, complete with

schoolbooks. These entries contain student names, dates of birth, and
parents' names. The original registrations >from the Korczyna
