    ... to the rabbinate. He was the last Rabbi Baranow was privileged to have. Unlike his predecessors Reb Avigdor was social minded. Though lacking the scholarly eminence of his father, he was the one instrumental in con-verting the large Besdin room into a center of learning. Here the "BETTER" lx›ys spent many hours poring over Talmudic tomes. The Rov himself conducted a shiur with some of the more promising boys. He saw in Zionism the very antithesis of Orthodoxy. The restlesncss of the younger generation, its flight from the Talmud to secular education, its becoming lax in observing the mores and taboos of tradition he attributed to the Zionists. Undismayed, the Rov continued in his set ways, never deviating from his position until the Nazi holocaust put an end to him and his efforts ...

    ... essential keg of water. They also had a small "Aron-Kodesh," (cabinet for a Torah scroll) because they sometimes held services there. Six adults slept there, with a few chickens for good measure. Leizer was asthmatic, and had a violent temper. It was told of him that with his bare hands he had once torn apart an unfortunate chicken that happened to flutter on to the work table. In contrast, his wife Sura was a good natured and warm hearted person. In another manuscript Saul Miller wrote at great length even more bitterly of his sufferings here, where he was bound without any hope of release, kept busy with menial chores so that there was little time to learn the skills he wanted and was entitled to learn, and constantly subjected to sarcastic abuse from Leizer: "Such a topcoat you need ...

    ... were only a short distance away. Although Suwałk itself was not opened to Jewish settlement until Napoleon's time, there is considerable evidence to support the view that Jew* were permitted to settle in the surrounding countryside for centuries There already was a Synagogue in the adjacent town ״f Wilkowishk a› early as 1623. In 1815 Suwałk became a part of the Tzar's empire and remained Russian until the end of World War I when Suwałk once again reverted to Poland. There was an increase in both JewUh population and agitation under the Tzar. In an !rornc sen*, it was the tyranny of Russian rule that spread the fame and influence

    ... in their sc-lection. To the credit of "Kinian Sefarim" it should be noted here that though it was run by mere boys, it was administered efficiently and with integrity. There was never a shadow of scandal associated with the administration of this institution. In the final analysis, Baranow, in the last two decades before its destrue-tion, represented a civilization in transition. To be sure, Baranow was not alone in its groping for new concepts and orientations. Almost each town in western Galicia, and for that matter, in the entire country, was faced with similar situations. But Baranow was different, unique. It was like the other towns of similar size, yet was an entity unto itself and had a soul all its own.
