  • Busk Yizkor Book (1965), image 337 {y99}
    ... with gables and a heavy wooden belfry with absolutely bare sides. The interior of the church is luxuriously ornamented with barbaric images, of which the excellent old gentleman seems quite proud. He shows us his gold embroidered vestments, a handsome chasuble with flower design of the last century, and he makes us notice that it is of French tissue. Some court gown of a friend of Louis XV, perhaps, which after strange vicissitudes is in this quiet place piously expiating the sins of departed flesh. While the priest naively makes us admire a little chapel crudely carved in wood with a simple knife, the work of his hands on long winter evenings, a dozen peasants, men and women, have entered and eagerly share the feast spread before our eyes. As we pass the altar we find on the floor ...

    cnian peasants, and a small chapel for (a dissenting sect?) of poor peasants. Another Polish institution was the Dom Narodni, or "people’s house," housing their nationalist-patriotic associa-tion, and their athletic "Sokol" ("Falcon") organization. As far as the Jewish population of Dobromil was concerned, all of these institutions might as well have been on the planet Pluto. (L.M.) (25) Having acquired in Imperial Austria-Hungary and Im-perial Germany, a passionately anti-militarist outlook, reinforced by hearing August Bebel in Berlin, Saul Miller treats these "Lag B’Omer" excursions rather negatively. These observances are related to ...

    ... very pots and pans. During the service they would be making their plans, biting a point of their beards between their teeth, mumbling, pacing up and down the length of the aisle, and that is how they wor-shipped. Still others used to "daven" with a sincere heart and afterward also dip into one of the sages* books. This also was customary in the chapel of the "Belzer Chassidim," and also in the little chapel of the "Tshortkover Chassidim," although there I never went to "daven."17 My father was not a "Chassid" attached to any particular rabbi, but when it came to "Shabbos" and "Yomtov" he was among all the "Yeeden" who were dressed up, having bathed and combed, strutting from the Friday sweating-baths where almost every "Yeed" had been "sweating." The well-to-do wore their silk cloaks ...
  • Iavoriv Yizkor Book (1979), image 269 {y63}
    ... he deserved. He made wonderful friends who gen-ulnely loved him. So many regarded him as their father, and in the last few years they would make sure they saw him each day - or phoned him each day, to assure themselves of his well-being. I remember when visiting him in Israel. When we walked down the street, it was an exhil-arating experience of love, honor and respect. People would come out of stores to qreet him. Shop keepers, the bank manager, post office clerks - and everyone said- "What a wo nderful man your father is". He was a nice man. If this service were in Israel now, this chapel would be packed with hundreds of his fr-lends.
