At the age of five (5) or thereabout the child would begin to learn Chumosh (Bible). The traditional starting was "Vayikro" (Leviticus). The child's beginning to learn Chumosh was an occasion for celebration. Candies and cookies were to be distributed among the classmates and on the Sabbath neighbors and family were invited to share in the celebration. The child sat in Cheder all day.

As a result, my mother became a sales girl until the time of her marriage. A small business was started in a wooden booth with the help of her father Reb. Berish Green-baum and her brother Leybush. There they sold can-dies, vegetables, fruits, and a few groceries. Early in the twentieth century a large fire broke out in Brzozow which destroyed many wooden houses and among them almost all of the wooden booths.

It is dragged along on the solid road like some artificial leg, making a longdrawn, squeaking sound. Finally even these noises fade out, swallowed up by the "rendjines" fields. The emptied rink is silent. In the stores the women busy themselves with arranging the scattered goods while the men put on their overcoats, the "ibertziers", and go to the syna-gogue.
