Stephen, I came across your comments about Shulem Baumrind while researching his Congregation Massas Benjamin. I have been looking into the my family history recently. I'm Tim's son, Valerie's grandson, Elliot's great grandson, Max's 2nd great grandson, and Shulem is my 3rd great grandfather.
Would you be able to help me fill in the gaps in my knowledge about Shulem and his family?

STEPHEN BAUMRIND
 

Hello Christopher,
Your Grandmother Valerie was a great favorite of mine, and my first cousin. Uncle Elliot and my father Harold were brothers.
Their father Max was the son of Rabbi Shulem Baumrind, grandson of Mordechai Baumrind, and great grandson of Rabbi Moshe 
Baruch Bezin. When I was 12 Max told me I was the 7th oldest son. Since I've given you the 6 generations I know, I'm still 
looking for that 7th oldest son (Rabbi Moshe Baruch Bezin's father). If, in your searches, you find him, please let me know.
Hope this helps.
Captain Stephen J.Baumrind, USCGR=RET (the full title). Your Mom called me Steve.

Jean,
 
Chag sameach to you and all.  I am using this non-work day to do some long-overdue catch up, including all-things Podhajce.  Your email below prompted me to follow the link, and to the page about Congregations Massas Benjamin.  On that page I found the following about the shul:
 
The cornerstone says:
In memory of the brothers Shimon and Yisroel, sons of Moshe Einshtases (ad menucha, i.e., to his eternal rest), an offering on behalf of their mother, Golda Einshtases, 1926.
 
This info is news to me, important to me, and sent shivers down my spine:  Shimon ("Zygmunt" or "Sigmund") Einstoss was my great uncle. Yisroel ("Sruel" or "Irving") Einstoss (known by Greenberg, Golda's maiden name, as required by then-applicable-in-Podhajce Austro-Hungarian law), was my maternal grandfather.  Both of them were machers in the smoked fish industry, which I imagine was how they had the means to contribute to the construction of the shul.
 
This group continues to be a blessing.
 
Jon

Jon--that is really exciting.  I almost didn't respond to the original letter.  Now I am so glad that I did.

Re: looking for ancestors from Podhajce

Adam
 

Carol, 
And Zeiger surname? Was the surname Kramarczuk combine with Zeiger? In Berezhany there was Karol Hirschfeld- his mother was Kramarczuk, and her mother was Maria Zeiger. What do you think?

Anyone know a Morris Seinfeld, who came over around 1910?  My wife’s grandfather.
