    ... accommodation. The older the child became, the more strenuous his studies and the more severe the discipline. At the age of nine (9) he would rise about 6 A.M. and learn until about 8, davin, go home for breakfast and was off to school. By two (2) P.M. he was back in Cheder until four. Then he was free until after the evening services when another two hour session in Cheder followed. Somewhere in between, the child squeezed in his homework for school and Cheder and enjoyed such relaxation as was available to him. The lot of the girls was easier. They were not required to attend Cheder, neither were they subjected to its discipline. They obtained some private tutoring in Hebrew reading and attended the regular public school. In the Haskala literature one reads aboue the gruesome discipline ...

    ... imparted them to the class at frequent intervals. When communism was considered a threat to Polish interests, she represented the Jew as a communist. When uncmploy-ment and strikes in the industrial cities were the scourge of the country, the Jew was painted by her as the plutocrat who exploited Poland's sons of labor. A Jewish boy who protested and branded her allegations as untrue was severely punished. Fight between Jewish and non-Jewish boys were occurrences that sur-prised no one and the teachers invariably blamed the Jewish boys for pro-voking them. Punishment was severe and immediate—the sharp edge of the meter across the palms and fingers of the hands. It was considered a mark of distinction for the victim not to have screamed in pain. The boys devc-loped a method to ease the pain ...

The first of whom we know to have assumed the rabbinical position was Reb Srultche, son of Reb Lezerel of Dzikov and grandson of Reb Naftolie, founder of the Rop-chicer Hassidic following. Upon the death of Reb Srultche there was a feud between his son, Reb Simcho the Yerushalmi (so named because at an advanced age he migrated to Eretz Isroel to end his days there) and his son-in-law Reb Yankiv, It was said that the latter was the more capable of the two, but due to some irregularities in the elections Reb Simcho won and assumed the mantle of the rabbinate. He had two sons, Reb Itzele and Reb Alterel. Upon Reb Simcha's departure to Eretz Isroel ...

    ... meaning of the term Kohol—community—went through a series of changes. It was finally applied to mean organized leadership of the Jewish community. In Baranow, "Kohol" consisted of a number of members whose presiding officer was the Rosh Hakohol. This body was elected periodically by umver-sal male suffrage. The periods preceding elections were marked by heated arguments between the factions, which occasionally reached face slapping proportions. Moreover, the elections were not always conducted in the best democratic traditions. Since the law prescribed that the elections were to be certified by the Starosta (head of the county) the party favored by the government {the Rov's Party) usually won. An election which gave the Zionist parly a majority was invalidated, a new Kohol appointed ...

The post World War I years ushered in a cultural fermentation, which left its mark on the Jewish youth. In Baranow this was reflected in the way the youth took to avid reading of secular literatures. Time was now divided between the study of the Talmud and that of modern Yiddish-Hebrew-Polish literatures. The synagogue, which earlier emitted echoes of voices of boys poring over the Talmud, was becoming silent part of the day. The midday hours were now devoted to reading newspapers or books of secular content. The mail brought in daily ten Yiddish (Haint), three Polish (Novy Dziennik) and two Hebrew (Hatzfirah ...
