Jewish Institute in St. Petersburg, Russia #galicia


Jean Rosenbaum <mervinr@...>
 

Several years ago, my husband and I visited the Jewish cemetery in
Podhajce, Ukraine. We naoticed that the tombstones had numbers on
them. I learned recently that these numbers may have done for a
survey by the Jewish Institute in St. Petersberg.

Does anyone know about this organization and how I might go about
contacting them?

This is exactly the kind of question that can be answered with great ease,
within seconds, by a query to Google. (Last time I wrote a sentence like
that here I was deluged with emails telling me that the respective writers
use some other search engine, which is not the point.) I just made such a
search, using the search terms <jewish community petersburg> (no quotes, no
brackets), because there are many Jewish institutions in that city, and one
approach would be to write to the community and ask them your question.

The search was completed in about a tenth of a second, and resulted in
nearly 900 thousand hits (not all pertinent). Among them you might find a
good candidate for the institute you seek. In any case, the postal address
of the community is on their website.

Google is your friend, and there are more resources on the Internet than
just JewishGen.

I think what Ms. Rosenbaum may be inquiring about is:

St. Petersburg Jewish University Address: Russia
196247 St. Petersburg, POB 10
Tel.: 7-812-316-38-30
Fax: 7-812-513-10-04
E-mail: univer@jewuni.spb.ru
Web site: http://www.ort.spb.ru/j_univ/

A couple of years ago I wrote to St. Petersburg Jewish University
because I had learned that it had a collection of postcard picture
portraits, among which was one of Gregor Zvi (Zvi Hirsh) Belkovsky
(or Belkowsky). I wanted to know whether it was possible to obtain
a copy of this particular postcard. I never received a response. I
didn't pursue my inquiry because I possessed several photographs of
Gregor Zvi at different stages of his adult life.

But I intend to write to the St. Petersburg University again,
this time to the the University's librarian to learn whether she
knows of any articles or books by Gregor Zvi, those I've not been
able to locate here in the States.

There is also in Russia this address to which Ms. Rosenbaum might
want to write:

Jewish University Moscow
9 Mokhovaya, Suite 329,
Moscow 103009, Russia
Tel/fax: (095)203 3441

I tried to link to http://www.ort.spb.ru/j_univ/ but got error.

As I have a branch of my family tree that came >from Russia would
like very much to have an address that might give me more
information.

As a matter of fact I am looking for information >from Buynaksk /
Bujnatsk, Dagastan Russia. (I know that is not connected to Galicia
but maybe somebody can help.)
