  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 420 {y94}
    155 A LETTER I loved my father for his benevolence and opti- mistic attitude. He would say : "One has to show God how one should live. Demand a turkey and he will supply you with one; but if you only ask for a few potatoes — that’s what you’ll get! He had such innumerable come-backs for his wife and daughters. He was a kind-hearted man who knew all the offi-c'als and magistrates in the shtetl. When a Jew had a problem he would bring it to Reb Israel Freund to see if he could help. Mother and the five daughters were very proud of him. Our house was a haven of love and tranquility. ...
  • Brzozow Yizkor Book (1984), image 495 {y94}
    ... he once said to me in Warsaw : "I’ve already tried lecturing in Yiddish and I think I've got the language". And just two months ago in Haifa heard him say with the same self-depreciation : "I believe that in a few weeks more I’ll be able to lec-ture in Hebrew". He could have made the act of joining the work-ers’ movement in the diaspora easier for himself. After all, the day-to-day activity of the movement did not demand a too profound and painful ideolo-gical analysis, and the exigent need for pivotal per-sonalities could have been a short and easy way to achieve leader status. The way he chose, how-ever, was that of profound, unremitting study, never compromising the principal tenets of the movement. He never neglected a single problem that needed investigation nor did he accept ...
  • Chrzanow Yizkor Book (1989), image 420 {y114}
    ... Chrzanow Judenrat, Betsalel Cuker, to investigate the actual conditions in the camp. With his unrelenting energy, together with Moyshe Nagoshiner, he managed to visit the above-mentioned camps. The young men from Chrzanow greeted them with bitterness and outcries of enraged hostility at their fate. He returned heartbroken, but unfortunately he could not do anything substantial to help them. The labor details demand further discussion. It is true that a large number of the young people of Chrzanow gave up their souls in torture and pain at the work camps. But it should also be noted that the majority of the surviving Jews of Chrzanow— which is a large percentage, relative to other Jewish cities—remained alive on ac-count of the camps. I can attest that if they had not been in the camps ...
  • Chrzanow Yizkor Book (1989), image 445 {y114}
    ... . A Jewish woman was in the middle of making a deal for a rooster while saying the kedushe, and lifted her heels at the words, "Holy, holy, holy." The saleswoman said to her, "You can jump up and down all night, I'm not going to give you the rooster for a penny cheaper!" Competition The well-known Chrzanow marriage broker, Reb Chaim Gross, was summoned to the tax department regarding the taxes he paid on his fees for arranging marriages. Reb Chaim said to the official: "I'll pay you as much as you demand, on condition that you forbid the boys and girls to meet at the Plantn because since the Plantn became popular, I have no more customers, neither boys nor girls.. Three Virtues Which Are Flaws A Jewish woman went to a rebe with a request. She asked the rebe's secretary ...

    ... Opera, despite the fact that they did not know how to read music. In Chrzanow, the one who led the prayer in congregation was not only responsible for appealing to the Most High, but also had to be a fit musician. REB YISROEL LEYZER WEINTRAUB OF BLESSED MEMORY The "Bathan from Chrzanow," the wedding performer Weintraub was famous not only in Poland, but beyond Poland's borders as well. He was much in demand at the weddings of wealthy and rabbinical families. More than simply a facile inventor of rhymes, like the majority of wedding jesters, he was a typical Chrzanbw bathan and a serious rabbinical scholar. In addition to his first-class skill at recitation, his rhymes were peppered with profound textual in-sight and pearls of wisdom from the ancient rabbis. His jokes and puns ...
