    ... tausend Jahre alten Volkswerten gegen etwas Ungeklärtes, Unbestimmtes, Problemati-sches empfohlen wurde. Es ist klar, dass solche Gedanken nur bei denjenigen Juden auftauchen konnten, die aus dem nsten kamen, wo ihnen noch die Möglichkeit geboten war, ihr Wissen aus dem Urquell jüdischer Lehre zu bereichern, die von des Gedankens Blässe des jüdischen Westens noch nicht angekränkelt waren. So ist es denn kein Wunder, dass gerade in Bielitz, wo sich der "Osten" und "Westen" begegneten, es zunächst die "östler" waren, auf die der Zionismus mit seinen logischen Konsequenzen einwirken musste - und dass sie die ersten Apostel dieser Idee wurden. Und so waren es junge Juden, aus dem Osten, die die Gründung der Studentenverbindungen: "Hasmonäa", "Chewrussa", und "Emunah" beeinflussten ...

    ... Handel und Verkehr blüht und die erstere so wichtig sei, dass öfters, wenn die Tuchfabrikatur stark betrieben wird, die bloss dort arbeitenden Tuchmacher- und Tuchscherergesellen, vielleicht die Zahl von 1000 Köpfen ersteigen, dazu endlich c) die Militärgarnison in beiden Städten, die vielen Hilfsar-beiter, welche die Fabrikatur notwendig hat, Dienstboten und die fremden bloss zeitweilig auf beiden Plätzen sich aufhal-tenden Handelsleute etc. - so handelt es sich um eine Men-schenmasse von zirka 12.000 Seelen, welche in beiden Städten lediglich auf den einen Wochernmarkt beschränkt ist und sich also Samstags den Bedarf ihrer Viktualien für die ganze Woche besorgen muss: Es drängt sich demnach durch dieses Vorausge-sagte die Überzeugung von selbst auf, dass d) dieser Übelstand der Sache ...

    192 Moshe would bless the wine in a ringing voice, using a traditional melody full of the "Neshamah Jctherah." Later, in the manner of "govrin Yehuda’in’’ (Jewish gentlemen) he would break off pieces of the challa and hand them around. The *4zmirot’' (songs) ac-companying the meal evoked many memories and took me back tens of years, to the Friday night ceremony in my fathers house. When the spirit was upon him he would dredge up from his memory all kinds of melodies, whether from the Modzitz Has-sidim, mostly sad, or from the Bobov Hassidim, which for some reason always reminded me of marching songs. I remember that a melody sung once ...

    ... Even today friends of mine who lived near us, tell me how they used to stand in- the yard be-hind our windows, listening to the music. We all joined in the choir and my brothers were very good singers. As for the girls, though they were gene-rally not permitted to sing with the boys, Father, for all his devoutness, had nothing against it. It was a habit of Father’s to bless the boys on the eve of Yom Kippur by laying his hands on their heads. He would then turn to the girls and bless them as well. There was something rather frightening in this picture of Father with his white beard and white robe (kittel), and wearing white slippers as
