Rohatyn, Raphael Soferman and the Hebrew School #galicia


David Scriven
 

My great-uncle Wolf Kramarov (later known as Ze'ev Carmi) arrived in
Rohatyn 1906-7 to teach Hebrew at a school run by Raphael Soferman.
Wolf also acted as secretary of the Stanislawow Hebrew Teachers
Union founded by Soferman.

I'm looking for any photographs of that era of Soferman, the school or
anything else connected to the union. The Rogatyn Yizkor book on
JewishGen mentions a number of photographs, but none are attached.

Dear David,

On page 186 of the Rohatyn Yizkor Book there is a picture of Raphael
Soferman.

You can access the online version of the book at the NY Public Library
- the direct link is on the Rohatyn Jewish Heritage website:
http://rohatynjewishheritage.org/en/memoir/yizkor-book-rohatyn/

As founder and project lead, I invite you to explore the RJH website
for photos and other historic info about the prewar Jewish community
of Rohatyn.

Please also join the descendants group where you can access free if
charge 1000s of genealogy records, founded in 2009 by Dr. Alex
Feller of Chicago:

Hope this helps.

Warm regards,
