    ... 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 ...

    ... are, without doubt, the most kosher ones of them all. There is another kind of "guarded" matza, a "superguarded kind" baked on the very eve of the Holyday, called "No sleep matzes", baked especially for the use of the Rabbi’s house and for the well-to-do Hassidim who are in the position of paying for them cash down. When an ordinary Hassid manages to get such a matza from the Rabbi’s house he keeps it for the first seder night to be used as an Afikoman, ultimately to be enjoyed by the whole family. These matzes are dubbed "No sleep matzes" for, being baked on the very same day, they are not kept overnight. Another reason is that while baking them the Hassidim sing a verse from the Psalms and "Hallel", including the verse "Lo lanu ki leshimha ten kavod, etc." These matzes ...

    ... ’s capacity, so that there will be no "teyglah", or leftovers of dough on the table. Each of the two children on either side of the kneader pours on the material in his charge. These youngsters who, from the moment the kneading is over until the dough is taken to the work-table are actually unoccupied, would give anything to exchange a few words together, but the "kneading woman" will have none of this and keeps them well apart, for the children represent elements which must not come in contact with each other. Any talk between the flour covered urchin on the right of the kneading bowl and his water bespattered colleague on the left of it might let loose a certain amount of the materials in their hands and the resulting contact might imme-diately engender the most dangerous reaction ...

    ... , with the public house so near... They return to the village to do their shopping. It is almost midday and the burden of activity now passes to the stores as the "Targovitza" and the "platz" are slowly emptied. The husband participates only in the more serious purchases — a suit, boots, sewing materials and the like. All this is bought with his money as the supporter of the family. The woman, for her part, keeps her earnings in hiding, tied in a piece of cloth, to be used only for emergencies. The woman is eager to buy, knowing that whatever she manages to get from her husband now is pure profit. She is fully aware that whatever is left will be delivered to the public house where it is doubtful whether anything will be left. Her husband, for his part, is stingy — it is good to enter ...

    ... the news that its fellow- Kolbuszowites had collected #1,000 for them. The writer of this article appealed to the Joint personally, asking that they also contribute a like amount. The representatives of the Joint refused. The letter concludes with a favorable opinion written by a Joint inspector: "I was impressed by the hard work, done in a volunteer capacity, by the chairman who keeps the books with an exaggerated continuous watchfulness and daily inspects the work of the treasurer. No less devoted is the secretary, Professor Thau, who despite his professional work (as teacher in the elementary public school and gymnasium of Kolbuszowa) devotes all his free time to the books and documents and monthly reports." The Society Receives Funds from America The initial sum of #750 was given ...
