    ... in "Tokheha" (reproof): "In the morning you will say — who will give us evening; and in the evening you will say : who will give us morning". Every moment brings new fears Each man looks at his companion — perhaps he has some lie to tell him... I nevertheless hope that everything will blow over and there will be no war. May the blessed ... sent from Brzozhow by Reb Ya’akov-Itzhak Salz and his sife Sarah, may God avenge them, to their daughter Gittle in New-York. It was actually the parents’ letter of farewell to their daughter, as if their hearts told them that it was the last they would ever write. To spare their children, the parents try to hide their fear of the oncoming war. The post-card gives a short description of the situation and the atmos-phere in the shtetl in those tense ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 504 {y94}
    ... after the traditional ,,Kidush Levanah" and the "Havdalah" and we had eaten something after the Yom Kippur fast, my Grandfather began the "Avo-dath Hakodesh" (sacred work) to fulfill the "Mitz-vah" by knocking in a stake to symbolize the begin-ning of "putting up" the "Sukah" and simultaneously performing the prayer "Leshem Mitzvath Sukath Shalom" (for the sake of our commandments of the Succoth holiday). It brings to my mind the spirit of the Passover Holiday when we used to bake the Matzoth called "Leshem Matzoth Mitzvath". The following day the real "putting up" of the Succah began with all the tools in my "Zajdes" pos-session which he treated like precious talismans. He stood around like a building contractor or an architect and started to give us, his grandchildren, orders ...

    ... is bringing a young calf for the slaughter to celebrate the Holiday. "Shalom aleichem, Reb Hershl," some young men surround him, "What’s that in your "polkoshik" (a reed basket woven all round the cart) ?" I’m bringing a "Korben PesachT* (a little Pass-over sacrifice, as in the days of the Temple) he ans-wers humurously, pleased at his own wit. At the words "a Korben PesachT’ the company brings him without ado to the Rabbi who, after eliciting the evidence from those present, gives the following sentence: the calf, being dedicated by Hershl as a sacrifice, must not be enjoyed till the rebuilding of the Temple. Till then, in the meantime, it must be buried in the ground (presumably it will rise in the resurrection !) Who would not sympathise with the poor wretch, whose plans ...

    ... the "next world". These women read "Tzenna u’r’cnna" and know a smattering of the law so that, on winning the fight they, too, join the eaters of "guarded" matzes. Not only is the raw material, the "guarded" wheat, costly, but the baking of these matzes comes much higher than that of the common product. The baking procedure is as follows : Every even-ing before sunset the gentile drawer of water brings water from the well, accompanied by a child who sees to it that no sour element enters the water, God forbid. The water is them sieved through a white cloth spread over a wooden barrel, and the barrel is then covered by another white cloth and a lid. This water is called "Water that has slept", for it is left overnight. The flour to be baked is brought by each customer individually ...

    ... whatever she manages to get from her husband now is pure profit. She is fully aware that whatever is left will be delivered to the public house where it is doubtful whether anything will be left. Her husband, for his part, is stingy — it is good to enter the pub with a handful of rustling notes — not like a beggar unable to pay and treat the whole company. After shopping — a hasty lunch. The woman brings out her basket from the "polkoshik" in the cart, containing a huge loaf of bread, large as a cart-wheel and wrapped in a sheet. The bread is sliced into respectable portions, someone goes to the but-chers’ for "kilbassa", a cheap immitation of salami made of derma filled with spiced, roasted kasha and leftovers of meat and pork tripe. The farmers push this "salami" into the right ...
