    ... arose within the worshippers when they had Reb. David Shochet for tfieir "Sha-liach Tzibur" (cantor). When the Polish National celebrations came up, as on the 3rd of May or the 11th of November, representatives from the Polish authorities came to the Synagogue. Reb. David Sho-chet stood by the "Aron" (Ark), dressed in the "Talith" (Prayer Shawl) and with his strong bari-tone voice sang "Mah Tovu Ohalechah Yaakov" (How good are your tents Yaakov). Even the Gen-tile listeners expressed their inspiration and paid tribute to his performance. Experts would express their opinions concerning Reb. David saying that it was a pity that a person with the treasure and talent as the voice of Reb. David did no have the opportunity of higher educa-tion ...

    ... , heart-to-heart dialogue. He had composed a special melody for the more inspiring verses, humming it with intense feeling, his face glowing with a sense of partnership in King David’s creation. His free hand would be slightly raised as he turned his fingers back and forth. Ac-cording to him there was an angel on each of his fingers and he, Zalmaleh, was conducting them as they sang with him. Who can tell if Zalmaleh actually saw the angels or just felt them on the tips of his fingers. Be it as it may, the "realistic" explanation he gave his sur-prized hearers was as follows : as every mitzva by a Jew produced an angel, and the angels created out of his Psalm singing were anchored in the Psalms, what was more natural than that they should join him in his singing and enjoy the beauty ...

    ... is that my father thought very highly of him. Reb Schmclke Braff, of blessed memory, did not come from Brzozow but from Viellipolla. His wife’s name was Xehama. I knew his four sons : Yehi’el, David, Ya’acov and Mendel, the last being my friend who died some years ago in Antwerpen. They were a fun-loving group and were always cheerful, even when things were at their worst. When they sang 11zmirot" many people always collected outside their house for the pleasure of hearing them, especially during the summer when the windows were open. I remember once the oldest brother, Yehi’el, may he rest in peace, Wolf Engel (?) and my brother Kalman, arrived unexpectedly on leave from the army and were faced with the problem of entering the Tschortkower Clois without side-curls. They bought some ...
  • Chrzanow Yizkor Book (1989), image 408 {y114}
    ... exemplary order and strict, almost military discipline. The Jews had to work on the Sabbath and the holidays, including Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. All of Jewish communal life during the last period (roughly from July 1942 until February 1943) was reflected at the shop. Joy and sorrow, trouble and pleasure filled the buildings. One Jew would speak from the bottom of his heart; a second told a new joke, or sang a new song. Their common fate erased the differences between the aristocracy and the common people, between the erstwhile rich man and the pauper. People sensed instinctively that their lives hung by a thread, and they en-joyed themselves with a kind of gallows humor for as long as they could. They laughed and joked at their home troubles as no other people could possibly have ...
