    ... to Romania. On the seventh day of Passover, April 14, 1944, we escaped: Mordechai Spitzer, two daughters of the Bobover Rabbi Gitel and Rosa and myself. With the help of a Christian guide we got through the border and after five days we arrived in the town of Arad in Romania. We made an agreement with the guide to bring more Jews from Grosswardtfen. Several days later he came with eight more people. N'echamah Stempel and her two children, Ashkenazi and his wife, Eliezer Rubin, Szlomoh Kenigsberg and Tanenbaum. Mordechai Spitzer continued his rescue mission and with the help of several Christian guides he managed, for a high price, to save about 70 more people. I managed to obtain a certificate to Eretz Israel and my wandering from place to place and the suf-ferings came ...

    ... their hotel rooms. One of them finished the Amida first, rapidly said Aleinu, and started out of the room. The second, not wanting to interrupt himself in the middle of the Amida, winked at him and asked, "Nu akh?" ("Where are you going?") The first answered that he was looking for someone to go get into a little trouble with... And the one replied, "Nu akh! Shtayim!" (Make it two.) Mazel Tov! Mendl Ashkenazi m/b/a, a popular man who loved a good joke, once met an elderly Jewish stranger at the railroad station. He offered his hand, pronounced a hearty "Sholem-aleikhem!" and wished him mazel tov. The stranger stood in astonish-ment and stared at him: Mazel tov—what for? "Listen," Mendl said, "today's the first time I've seen you since your wedding!" What's Left to the City During ...

    ... . The Machzikei Limud also organized religious services at their party headquarters, where the young people prayed together on the Sabbath, holidays, and also on weekdays. In this fashion a collective religious and traditional spirit was inculcated. Reb Jecheskiel Zajac, who has been described previously, played a significant role in the development of the local Machzikei Limud, as did Mendl Ashkenazi, who was blessed with organiza-tional talents. The Machzikei Limud in Chrzanow was the only organization in Galicia that existed for over thirty years without interruption. BEIS YAKOV As in almost every Polish city, a Beis Yakov school was established in Chrzanow after World War I. Without doubt it was needed, and it came at just the right time. Although ...

    ... prayer-book, while the "Beis Medrash" used the Sephardi prayer-book. (These terms, Ashkenazi and Sephardi, did not mean in Dobromil what they mean in Israel today.) The "Misaskim Shilechel," Little Synagogue of the Study Group, conducted by Reb Naftali Fuchs, met in part of the "Groise Shul," and the "Schneider Shilechel," ("tailors" or workingmen's synagogue) was some kind of offshoot of the Big Synagogue. The Chevra Linah Tsedek, the Society for Visiting the Sick, which was led by Maier Treiber and Luzar Fabricant, used to hold services in a private house, lent by Leibish Brik. Maier Treiber seems to have rotated among all of these. The "shtreimel" is a hat made out of fox tails arranged in a circle.
