    ... became extremely close in time; I suffered with her and shared her feelings. All my worries centered around her and her feelings were the measure of my own. As to uncle, you need have no worries. He is well, thank God, though he does look older, now that he has shaven off his beard. He is a very clean person and keeps his house in order, though we sometimes come in to give it a thorough cleaning. He takes the midday meal with us; changes his underwear as usual. When he calls in a washer-woman we come in to help and afterwards do the ironing. Sarah Sarah Levite The following letter was written by my sister. Sarah Levite ...

    ... loose a certain amount of the materials in their hands and the resulting contact might imme-diately engender the most dangerous reaction — "Ha-metz" ! (fermentation). Like a baby from its tub the dough is taken out of the bowl and divided into "teyglach" among the working women who begin forming them into matzes. The "Erster Oyven" wanders around among them, hurrying them on by ... crying "A matze in oyven arrein !" (a matze for the oven!). Before the oven sits the "schieber", the flames reflected in his shiny face and rivers of sweat flowing down his beard and side-locks. He turns the half-finished matzes, takes out the finished ones with

    ... wretch, the feminine readers, always prone to tears and espe-dally so during the Days of Awe, are so overcome by the bitter fate of the just man and his suffering that their tears overflow. Though it is a fact that the "Meise norah" has a way of ending happily, the women, slow readers with little time for this occupa-lion, usually find themselves stuck in the middle of " ... !" to one of the youths who had long been waiting to be called to help. Quick as lightning he is there, before the "Ba’al toke’ah" should recover and regain control over the instrument. Confidently the youth takes the shofar in his hand, and Satan, who had been stuck inside it, been liberally spat on, squeezed and exhausted, gives in quickly and gets out. The shofar blasts like a war-trumpet and the congrega-tions is so ...

    ... buying and selling, now stand The insulted party tries to turn around for a re-buttal but the publican, who has him in a strangle-hold, whispers in his ear that it doesn’t befit a wise man and a respectable house-owner like himself to pay any attention to the babblings of a drunken sot ! In the meantime he thrusts him outside and shuts the door behind him with a sigh of relief. Sometimes Scene 1 of the above Act takes place in a far corner, unnoticed by the busy publican. By the time he realizes what is going on it is too late ! The fight is at its highest and not only can he not separate the protagonists but he must take care not to be caught between them, when he would be in real trouble. The fire breaks out quickly, each side finds reinforcement among relatives and friends ...

    ... would turn the loan into a "standing loan" — a "koshere halvueh" (a kosher loan is one on which no interest is charged) and wait till things got better. He would never go asking for the return of his money, trusting the people on his list to do their utmost to discharge the debt. And now, back to the market. While the farmer’s wife is busy selling her pro-duce, the farmer takes his cart, whips his horses into a trot and goes on to the "Targovitza". His cart is an open one, with two ladders placed at its sides to hold the fodder and the vegetables brought in from the fields, as well as firewood and construction beams brought to the village. On market day the side-lad-ders are reinforced by "polkoshiks’ (halves of woven reed baskets, to prevent the goods from falling out). One goes ...
