    ... time spent over the Sidur (prayer book—primers were not available in Baranow) was in short intervals. On the other hand the child was always in company of friends—children of his own age, and from early childhood he acquired the social habit of adaption and accommodation. The older the child became, the more strenuous his studies and the more severe the discipline. At the age of nine (9) he would rise about 6 A.M. and learn until about 8, davin, go home for breakfast and was off to school. By two (2) P.M. he was back in Cheder until four. Then he was free until after the evening services when another two hour session in Cheder followed. Somewhere in between, the child squeezed in his homework for school and Cheder and enjoyed such relaxation as was available to him. The lot of the girls ...

    ... the Jewish Councilman was an unenviable one. He fought the subtle and overt anti-Semites in the City Council and defended Jewish rights with vigor and dignity. KOHOL The original meaning of the term Kohol—community—went through a series of changes. It was finally applied to mean organized leadership of the Jewish community. In Baranow, "Kohol" consisted of a number of members whose presiding officer was the Rosh Hakohol. This body was elected periodically by umver-sal male suffrage. The periods preceding elections were marked by heated arguments between the factions, which occasionally reached face slapping proportions. Moreover, the elections were not always conducted in the best democratic traditions. Since the law prescribed that the elections were to be certified by the Starosta (head ...
  • 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 imposing medieval palace ...

    ... a tall post which, when lit, shed a dim weird light on the area. To the north and the south were the water pumps from which the inhabitants hand-pumped their daily supply of water. These pumps rose from wooden structures which covered the wells from which the water was pumped. When in winter the pumps froze or when, due to some mechanical malfunction, the pumps would fail to operate, a board was lifted ... ners used the lower floors as saloons and the upper ones for living quarters. The one in the north served also as a sort of hotel when cir-cumstances imposed detention on an infrequent visitor. All roads led to or emanated from the "Marck." Southward was the heavily cobbled road leading to the railroad depot some seven miles off. Midway to the depot was the Jcw־i$h cemetery. The road to the ...

    ... that a scries of major fires took place in the 90's of last century. The most damaging one was that in 1898, which caused the central part of town to burn down. The townhall went up in flames and with it all documents that might have shed some light on the history of the township. Baranow was not long in rebuilding. In place of the old wooden hovels new brick structures rose. Consequently Baranow gave the appearance of a young town. The calendar was a casualty of the impact of the fires. Thus, for a long period, events in the community did not occur according to the calendar year, but so many years pre or post the conflagration. In the dismemberments of Poland, the southern part of the country known as Galicia (which included Baranow) was annexed by Austria. Under the so called benevolent ...
