    ... , den 6. August 1817. DIE ISRAELITISCHE KULTUSGEMEINDE IN BIELITZ 1865-1905 In Schlesien war den Juden nach den sog. Toleranzpatenten für Herzogtum Ober- und Niederschlesien vom 17. April 1752 und vom 15. Dezember 1781, sowie dem Hofdekrete vom. 1. Mai 1794 der Aufentahlt unter der damals üblichen Beschränkung auf einen bestimmten Status von Familien (Familienstellen) zwar gestattet; die Errichtung einer Synagoge, Anstellung eines eigenen Rabbiners und die Wahl von Vorstehern war an besondere Bedingungen geknüpft. Es war ihnen bloss das Ausüben ihrer Religion als Privatexerzi-tium in Familienkreisen bewilligt. Zur Besorgung gewisser gemeinsamer Angelegenheiten bildeten jedoch die Israeliten in Schlesien drei Körperschaften oder Ge-meinden, unter der gesetzlichen ...

    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

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 rights hands ... complacent little men raise a glass to each other, wishing good luck to the souls gone to heaven, "and life and sal* vation for us..." The rope is on the neck. The hangman is generous, he has plenty of time and so he plays with his victim. From time to time he downs a mug of beer or smokes a cigarette, smiling with pleasure the while. Let us exploit the short respite while the hangman is gorging himself. With the gallows as a writing table we ...
