    ... and enjoy its contents. Soon another would join him and together they would indulge in relaxed conversation. The "Farein" occasionally produced a short play of skit for the enjoy-meat of its followers. To those of the opposing camp, this merited excom-munication. During the summer the town was visited by a touring carousel and the youngsters would be busy riding it. The more sturdy youngsters who helped turn the wheel for nine rides, would gel the tenth one free. Also in summer, swimming in the clear waters of the Krzemenice was a daily occupation of the youth but on Fridays almost every able bodied per-son went bathing. In order to reach the bathing point one had to go through the area inhabited by the Dolansky's peons. To avoid being molested by them, Jews went in groups for protection ...

    ... of the victim to cither cancel or reduce the fine. The meetings at the City Council were often stormy, as some of the Jewish members would expose ordinances to be anti-Semitic in intent and execution. The position of 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 ...

    Dear fellow townsmen of Barniv and vicinity! The present volume on our town of Barniv is being published upon an auspicious occasion. We feci as though a weight has ben lifted from our hearts and it is with feelings of the greatest satisfaction that we turn the leaves of this book. Ours was a poor and small community comparatively speaking, but it was rich in Torah, in wisdom, in Hassidut and in love of learning, in charity, in diligent toil. The sons and daughters of Barniv were renowned throughout Western Galicia for their love of learning, their sense of mutual responsibility, their bearing and their good manners. The intellectual and ...

    ... " anschloss, besonders beliebt bei der ganzen jüdischen Bevölkerung von nah und fern. Durch Ausflüge an Sonn- und Feiertagen in die herrliche Umgebung von Bielitz wurde auch das kameradschaftliche und gesellschaftliche Niveau erweitert und gepflegt.- Ein ganz besonderes Ereignis gab es im Juli 1914 für den jüdischen Turnsport und zwar der Kreisturntag in Brünn, an welchem alle jüdischen Turn- und Sportvereine der österrei-chisch-ungarischen Monarchie teilnahmen. Auch Makkabi Bielitz war mit einer Herrenriege und einigen Damentumerinnen bei diesem Fest vertreten. Für mich aber als jüngster Teilnehmer und aktiver Turner, der ich das erste Mal an einem solchen im-posanten Turntechnischen Ereignis teilnahm, war dieses Turnfest ein besonderer Markstein. Kaum waren wir aus Brünn nach ...

    ... nach dieser Zeit sich ereignet hat, sind Berichte, die mir von älteren oder jüngeren Mitgliedern des Vereines zu Ohren gekommen sind. Die Gründung des Makkabi im Jahre 1906/7 hat sich aus der dringenden Notwendigkeit ergeben, der jüdischen Jugend in Bielitz, deren jüdischen Einwohnerzahl sich von Jahr zu ver-mehrte, eine Betätigung in physischer Hinsicht zu geben. In der bestehenden Turnverein F.F.F.F. Bielitz war die Aufnahme von Juden ausgeschlossen. Wie alle Anfänge von Gründungen jü-discher Turn- und Sportvereine haben sich eine Gruppe von jun-gen jüdischen Handwerkern und Beamten, - an den Fingern einer Hand abzuzählen - , inspiriert durch die Zionistischen Kon-gresse und vor allem durch den Visionär Theodor Herzl und Max Nordau zusammengeschlossen, um im Turnzimmer, - Saal ...
