Re: Podhajce synagogues

It's a top-notch question. So the question of how and why one particular small town of roughly 3,000 people, a town that is not particularly famous, gets memorialized and gets continued in so many ways is truly an open one.

We know generally that one third of Eastern Europe's Jews left in the period roughly defined as that of mass migration to the U.S., that is 1881-1924. Note those dates denote events and may not correspond to real family life, and Canada and the U.S. are not identical in this regard, as well as in post-war migration. 

In the Lower East Side, where the vast majority of the U.S. 2.2 million Jewish immigrants arrived or used as an initial ethnic hub for landsmanshaft life while living elsewhere in the NYC area (e.g., Harlem, Hicksville, Williamsburg, Brownsville, etc.), what is left in the built environment shows a lot of small Galitizianer congregations having their own buildings and societies. They did so in part, because it showed just how important their town was, but for practical reasons including raising money for their home town and keeping friendships and business connections. Keeping those ties going was very important to immigrants as a social net. Also people from different political tendencies founded their own societies.  Also some societies and shuls were relatively short lived. So Podhajce's pattern to me at least does not seem like an anomaly when I look at the Galitizianer LES. Others may have other opinions.

Please pardon my ignorance, but Podhajce seems to have had a significant presence in NYC (synagogues, aid societies, etc.), for a town that I thought was fairly small.  Is it truly an outsized presence for a town the size of Podhajce, or did any town of a certain size (i.e., lots of them) end up having these kinds of institutions in NYC by the late 19th or early 20th century, as its residents migrated here?
 
PS:  My grandfather (Elias Ojserkis) and his half-brother (Sigmund Ojserkis) were originally from Podhajce.

There recently has been some discussion on Podhajce synagogues in New York.
There is information on www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Podhajce Click on the
Podhajce Synagogues and Memorials link on the menu.
Attached to the Rodef Shalom information is a list of members of that

Hi all,
I think this is a new topic, though related to LES and Jean's YMBA discussion. I have the names of the two Podhajce cemetery association locations.

Podhatzer Y.M.B.A. located in Mt. Hebron in Flushing, N.Y.
Podhajcer (Podhayce ?) Young Men's Benevolent Association. Loacted in Mt. Zion , Maspeth, N.Y.

Warmest regards,

Dear Julia,
JewishGen's Family Finder has 102 researchers listed for Podgaytsy<Podhajce> with 195 entries. Because the Jewish population in 1880 was 4,012 and in 1910 3,497, someone on the list might be familiar with these names. Emailing to some of the older researchers to ask about their research sources might be a good idea.

Some Podahjce research material

Jean Rosenbaum <mervinr@...>
 

I am doing some serious down-sizing and have several files of reseach material
that I no longer need. If anyone (in the U.S.) would like to have any particular file, just send me your snail mail address, and I'll get it off to you.

Available files:

1. Immigrant ship information, including ships sailing from the ports of
Bremen and Hamburg. Also included is doing research on records from Castle
Garden and Ellis Island.
2. Tips on getting translations into English. Includes guides on doing translations from both Russian and Polish documents.
3. Some general information on Ukraine plus tips on doing research there.
4. Sefer Ha-prenumerantn. This is in Hebrew and Yiddish. It was the
custom among Jewish writers of the past few hundred years to obtain
assistance in publishing their work by soliciting advance funds from
potential customers. I have identified the books for which advanced funds
came from residents of Podhajce, but I have not tried to translate the
names of the people who made the contributions.
5. A list of voters for Parliament from Podhajce from the year 1870. (Very difficult to read script.)

Jean,
I am looking for 2 ancestors (Mordicai Baumrind, and Rabbi Moshe Baruch Besin). If their names, or the names of any other Baumrinds are on the 1870 list of voters, I would like to have it. If not, I wouldn't want to deprive someone else of having the list. It sounds like a very important piece of history that you have discovered!

Up-dated Podhajce webpage

Jean Rosenbaum <mervinr@...>
 

Webmaster Jerome Schatten has added a number of new items to the Podhajce
website at www.kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/Podhajce

In the Podhajce History section, there is an article from the Encyclopedia
of Jewish Life Before and During the Holocaust. Also in that section are
3 relevant New York incorporation documents from the American Jewish
Historical Society.

Revisions were made to a section now titled Podhajce Synagogues, Cemeteries and Memorials.

A memoir by Tamara Mish was added to the Personal Memoirs section.

An additional book was placed in the Recommended Reading section.

Publishing Podhajce Yizkor Book

Jean Rosenbaum <mervinr@...>
 

There is a new project sponsored by JewishGen called Yizkor-Books-in-Print.  We have the wonderful opportunity of having the English translation of the Podhajce Yizkor Book included.  There is no cost involved for us in publishing the book.  It would simply be available for purchase by anyone who wants a copy.
 
It is, of course, possible to read the translation on the Podhajce webpage by going to kehilalinks.jewishgen.org/podhajce, but having it in book form would make it much more readily accessible.   However, some work is needed to put the book on the fast track for publication.  Someone needs to put all the text into an MS WORD document formatted with one inch borders and with headings and sub headings.  I hope that someone in our group is willing and able to take on this assignment.  It would be a real mitzvah.
 
Please do not contact me for further information.  Instead write to Joel Alpert, the coordinator of the project, at joel.alpert@... to further details.

Looking for Buchwald/Weittes(sp?)

ldyslpr46
 

I am trying to plan a trip to Podhajce this summer with my daughter to find my grandfather's roots. His name was Samuel and apparently, his mother's name was Chana Buchwald. For some reason he was made to take his mother's last name and not his father's. His father's last name was pronounced Vee-tes. I have been diagnosed with ALS and this is most certainly on my bucket list. If anyone has any information as to how I go about looking for this information and who I can contact in that area to help me get around, I would greatly appreciate it.

If you look at the JewishGen archives you will see the name of Alex Dunai who comes with fine recommendations. Samuel's parents probably only had a religious wedding so it was not recognized by the authorities so he was considered illegitimate and had to take his mother's name. Lots of Buchwalds in the area and at least one in my research.

I used Alex Dunaj and must say he was courteous, enthusiastic, on-time and not expensive...in 2000 it cost something like $125 for a day with him and a car...but I am sure he will have raised prices because of higher demand and inflation, particularly with regards to fuel...

If you have the money, I recommend spending two days where you want to go...an afternoon is just not enough...the hotel on main street is basic but cheap...

I think the guy who wrote Everything is Illuminated used him too...remember reading about it in the NYT Sunday Magazine...
