    ... take place in Boibcrke to make adjustments. At the national census in 1765, Boibcrke, together with the other small towns and villages, had 840 Jewish adults and 68 children over one year of age. The taxes which these Jews paid to the treasury was 1680 zlotys. The Jews of Boibcrke had 71 houses and the Christians had 219 houses. According to the census, the Jews of Boibcrke were engaged in such trades as the operation of the beer brewery, small stores, import-export, as well as crafts. In these years the Sejm (Cong-ress) in Warsaw ordered the Jews not to trade in horses, oxen, skins, hides, or wine. Among the Rabbis of the period of whom there is some knowledge, an outstanding figure was Rabbi Simchc ben Yaacov, who was Rabbi in Boiberkc in the second part of the 18th century ...

    ... leave a few pages to "I.W.O. Bletter," to the Institute of Jewish Suffering. Let our brothers who have been spared read them and perhaps learn some-thing from them. And to Providence we pray : May it please You, who DO NOT HEAR our cries, to at least guard these chronicle of our tears in a special urn so that they will be preserved, fall into the ... souls gone to heaven, "and life and sal* vation for us..."

With the gallows as a writing table we will write down what we have to say. In Hebrew in the book "People ...

    ... My father attempted to calm me down with the following remark: 44This is no the only cruelty which the Jewish Nation went through. When you study the "Tanach" the Talmud and the "Meforshim’* (interpretations) you will see that despite all the ,,Tzaroth" (troubles) which we Jews are experiencing in the Diaspora, it continually transpires that 44Am Israel Chay" (the Jewish Nation is alive). Bear this strongly in your mind — from the Jewish 44Tzaroth" you will learn a lot." With his explanation my father was trying to implant in his children Jewish Nationalistic ideas in conjunction with religious upbringing. My father’s spiritual inheritance remained not only indelibly imprinted in my memory, but penetrated my blood, sustaining and strengthening my Jewish consciousness, infusing a sense ...

Joseph Moses ist Factor bei Herrn Grafen v. Haugwitz (dem Besitzer der Herrschaft Bielitz). Es handelt sich hier um die Familie die später den Fami-liennamen Paneth annahm.
