    ... is at its height. The "Kapparot" (expiatory sacrifice, usually fowls) ritual begins the day before. Each member of the family gets a white Kappara : for the women — hens; for the men — cockerals; for the children, whose sins are few, young male or female chicks are prepared. Such sins and wickedness are piled upon the head of these fowls as they cannot even grasp. The chapter "Bnei Adam" having been said and the fowl swung around the head to the words : "This fowl will go to his death and I will goto the good life", the condemned, paying for the sins of others, are ready for the slaughter. As the number of kapparot is equal to the number of inhabitants in the shtetl, including the embryos in their mothers’ womb (pregnant women took two kapparot), the slaughterers are forced to work ...

    ... section close to the public baths was the bathing beach of the Jewish children. In the rare summer days permitted by the "Shulchan Aruch" for bathing, after the "yemei sefira" (days of counting) and before the "Three Weeks" and the "Nine Days" culminating in Tish’a Be’av, when bathing is forbid-den — the children would dip in the "bedel-wasser" splashing to their hearts’ content, naked as Adam and Eve had been before they learnt the meaning of shame. They tried to swim the length of the creek, always careful not to leave the limits of the Jews’ "territorial waters." As to the depth of the "bedel-wasser", the child-ren put it this way : If you stand on your head in it, its water reaches right up to your ears. From all this it becomes clear that the "bedel-wasser" was not, God forbid ...

    ... 16 Ann Feldman (Kreitstein), Los Angeles ן SOUVENIRS OF BRZOZOW the invective "Jew, go to Palestine!", even before I went to school, but such rudeness on the part of a teacher, a woman of learning and educator of a class, directed at innocent children, shocked me deeply. I was hurt to the very core of my being. I loved reading "Pan Tadeus", the famous master-piece of Adam Mickievitz, the great Polish poet and humanist. The fine figure of the Jew, Yankel, des-cribed by Mickiewitz as a music lover, an honest man and a Polish patriot, excited my imagination. The teacher made it clear that there was nothing surprizing in the Polish poet’s liking of this Jew, for in his time the Jews behaved properly, wore correct clothing (a kapota and a yarmulka ...

     Near the Magistrat (City Hall) there stood a fine statue of the Polish poet Adam Mickiewicz, set in a plot of green lawn and roses, corraled round with an iron palisade. Not far from the Platz used to stand the Jewish wagon* ers, waiting for someone to take to the railroad station, for five greitzer.3 Around the Ring Platz there were fine stone sidewalks. On three sides there used to be small Jewish shopkeepers, who used to wait all week for Monday to bring in customers, because that day had to bring in "parnossa’1 for the whole week. Mondays the peasantry of the region round used to come to buy for themselves their various household ...
