    ... more than one would get sick from overeating the delicious food that had been prepared (for after the fast). Since the older folks often stayed all night and next day in the synagogue, not permitting themselves the temptation of serving the children, so the kids really had a holiday. Nu, so let me by the way record what once happened to me myself. In the month of "Tishri" if the plum crop is good, in Dobromil we swam in plums, and we had them both cooked and preserved. Since I had a free hand to the cup-board of cooked food, and my father had instructed me not to forget ever to make a blessing ("brocha") when I take anything in the mouth, and definitely more "brochos" more merit ("mitzvos"), and I always wanted to fulfill Honor thy father31 and thus I made so many "brochos" that my mother ...

"CHEWRUSSA" Die "Chewrussa" wurde im Jahre 1896 gegründet, zu jener Zeit als Theodor Herzl den ,,Judenstaat" schrieb. Zwei junge Studenten der Gewerbeschule Otto Feldmann und Salo Storosum schufen die erste jüdische Studentenverbindung in Bielitz. Sie kannten damals noch nicht Pinskers ,,Autoemanzipation" und sie wussten auch nichts von der in ihrer Nachbarstadt im Jahre 1884 stattgefundenen "Kattowitzer Konferenz".
