Of these the most important were Reb Mottish Eckstein, a Hassid of Djikov; Noah Schapira, Asher Silber, Mechel Biermann, Nathan Kanncr, Zangen, Freilich, Joseph Schenblum and several others whose names I cannot remember at present. All of them were active in communal affairs, and representatives of the Community. They con-ducted communal affairs and some of them were "Radniks", representatives of the Jews on the Muni-cipal Council. Not everybody in Reisha trusted them or felt fond of them, but the majority of the Jews in the city did regard them as their representatives. In those days there were no important Jewish social organisations. When I first left Reisha at the end of my seventeenth year there was a Hovevei Zion Association which, however, did not have the I had been ...

Kalman, or Kalmaleh. was one, a "maskil," (an intelligent fellow of worldly outlook by Dobromil standards). who read German and Polish books. On occasion, when Reb Naftali was called away for other duties, Kalmaleh would take over the "cheder." and on the quiet would share some of his German and Polish readings with the boys. Reb Naftali also taught his pupils letter writing (S.M.). Rashi is the most famous of commentators on Hebrew Scripture, Rabbi Shlomoh Yitzchaki. Moses Alshech, a sixteenth century rabbi at Safed, also wrote commentaries, which must have had a specific appeal to Reb Naftali; the name of Alshech would ordinarily not be twinned with the name of Rashi ...

    ... immediately following the First World War, "wandering stars" would appear in Mikulince. These were enter- tainers who traveled from town to town disseminating Yiddish theater and art. I still remember the elderly actor Shnek. He was one of Goldfaden’s pupils and a member of his theater troupe. In the early 420’s, he came to Mikulince and performed together with his wife in a program of dramatic readings, monologues, jokes and old-style songs. The performances took place in private homes. A stage made of wooden planks would be set up and oil lamps would provide lighting. For a small price of admission, the audience would watch and listen in amazement and with great enthusiasm.
