    jacob d. brand "kinian sefarim" A very interesting institution in Baranow was that of "Kinian Sefarim" (The purchase and maintenance of the religious books in the Bes Midrosh.) This institution was unique in that it was administered entirely by boys be-twecn the ages of 12 and 18. Somehow, by common consent of the boys who learned in the Bes Midrosh, one of them was elected as Gabai and charged with the responsibilities of this institution. He would make up a list of boys, appointing them to collect money from the Jewish merchants in town. Each boy would have his Friday assigned to him in which to make his rounds.

In the early twenties Hirsh Trachman suffered a great tragedy in his family — his wife and son died of blood poisoning within a few days of each other.

Reb Ben-Zion’s wife, Rechtshe, was known for her wisdom and kindness.
