    BARANOW Shcchita etc. It derived its income from Shechita, moderate taxation, dona-tions, burial fees and financial assistance from the "landsleit" in America. THE RABBINATE Son succeeded father to the office of Rabbi in Baranow. The first of whom we know to have assumed the rabbinical position was Reb Srultche, son of Reb Lezerel of Dzikov and grandson of Reb Naftolie, founder of the Rop-chicer Hassidic following. Upon the death of Reb Srultche there was a feud between his son, Reb Simcho the Yerushalmi (so named because at an advanced age he migrated to Eretz Isroel to end his days there) and his son-in-law Reb Yankiv, It was said that the ...
  • Baranow Yizkor Book (1964), image 250 {y32}
    BARANOW On the cast was the road leading to the "Wasserlaeh" (a body of stagnant water) and to Tarnobrzeg (County seat). The "Wasserlaeh" also served modest economic and social functions. Its polluted waters furnished a limited supply of fish for the community. In winter it was used by the non-Jews for ice skating and on Rash Hashono by the Jews for Tashlich. The narrow lane in the north, paved with broad flagstones, led to the cluster of Jewish institutional buildings such as the Bes Midrosh (Syna-gogue), the Rabbi's residence, and the Mikveh. The road on the north-western corner pointed to Dolansky's "Castle" (The Hoif). This was an ...

    ... the higher classes, where we came into contact with him in the context of lessons on Jewish history and religion, there sur* faced the second and true face of this man. He was a proud Jew, with a warm Jewish heart, full of Jewish feelings, knowledgeable and involved in the community life of our town. He would help Prof. F. Korn impoverished students to pay the high school fees, either in part, or in full. To our distress, he himself suffered many problems from his ,,friends" at work, and especially from the anti-semitic principal Maro-zovsky. In letters that I received from him in France during the years 1937-39, he repeatedly mourned the anti-semitic agitation being carried on at the gym-nasium, some of which was specifically aimed at him personally. "It is intolerable — I despise ...

    ... make much money where people used to buy even a single cigarette. Still, when all went well the owners managed to eke out their "hayuna", a bare living. In the last days of the community in the Shtetl, after all hopes and illusions had finally been destroyed and all confronted the horrifying reality that closed in like a death trap, leaving them quivering like fish in a net — men like Zissel made a final, desperate effort to escape the hangman’s noose. Some managed to obtain a few days’ respite, even a few weeks, but not Zissel with his disability. No one knows what actually took place during the last moments of those murdered and slain and this applies to Zissel too. Only in the phantasmagoria of sleepless nights or in our nightmares do the endless possibilities appear ...

    ... a national and traditional education. My grandfather, Reb Shlomo Selenfreund, God rest his soul, was a well-known, highly respected man. He participated in the first Zionist Congress in Basel. I well remember an interesting experience in Grandfather’s house : On Friday afternoon, before the Sabbath, a win-dow was opened at the side of the house and people began to appear there. Each one received a package containing fish, challa and raisin cake. The needy ones who were too embarrassed to go to the window, came to the terrace and they, too, received similar parcels. Our father, God rest his soul, was an extraordinary
