Ujfherto = Ra'czfers #hungary


Katz, Itzik <Itzik.Katz@...>
 

Dear H-SIGGERs,

I just realized that Ujfeherto in Szabolcs-Bereg-Szatmer county (where my
family lived)was called Ra'czferd at sometime in the past.

I also realized that there was a very large Hassidic congregation there and
the place is very well known among the Hassidim.

I am wondering if anyone knows when was the name changed >from Ra'czferd to
Ujfeherto?

Also, I'd appreciate any direction to information about the Hassidic
congregation of Ra'czfred (Ujfeherto). I know some members of this Hassidic
congregation are now living in Brooklyn, NY.

Thank you very much.
