    ... good material in Bar Kochba to start a Dramatic Club. So we began to organise such a group. The first and oldest participants of the Dramatic Club, 2.T.G. Scena were: Joseph Heiblum, Henek Fuchs, Chaim Sack, Henek Eimer, Goldstein, Shlomo Wintergriin, David Griinspan, Hcshek Weichsel-baum, and others.

    ... , Nechumo- wicz and Zykowicz. Most likely he did not grant them his per- mission; the evidence to support this conclusion may be found in the fact that the loan which the Jewish community received in 1746 from the Christian, Stanislaw Kuczkowski, in the sum of one thousand zloty, was guaranteed "by the whole Jewish popula- tion," but the synagogue was in no way mentioned. In 1761 the Jews Abramowicz, Tobiaszowicz, Lezanski and Dukielski again petitioned for a cemetery but this time we do find the synagogue's existence mentioned. It is very possible that the aged Sanguszko did finally, before his death in June 1750, agree to the building of a synagogue, the so-called "older" synagogue (which the Germans destroyed in 1941). The above-mentioned loan was actually intended for its building ...

He was praised highly for his conscientious bookkeeping. * * * In 1714 the Jewish community charged one of its members in the civil courts with engaging in for-gery and alchemy. In 1757 the nobleman Wojciech Zawisza loaned 500 Zloty to the Jew Jonas Abramowicz. When Za-wisza died his widow sued Abramowicz for payment, but be claimed to have paid the debt to the deceased. The widow brought suit before the court, noting the difficulty of the problem. She proposed to lay the claim before a Board of Arbitration composed of two Jews and two Catholics. After two sessions the litigants settled the case amicably. About 1685 Kiba ...
