203 Years Ago Today Zalman Tzoref Arrived In Israel

Today, on Hoshana Raba in 1811, my 3rd great grandfather, Avraham Shlomo Zalman Zoref arrived in Israel from Keidan in Lithuania.

Zoref, a student of the Vilna Gaon, was the leader of the pioneers who rebuilt the Ashkenazi community in the Old City of Jerusalem and was responsible in 1836 for obtaining the rights to build the synagogue. He was assassinated in 1851.

Genealogy and Religion

Rabbi uses Genealogy in his Shabbat Drosha.

Rabbi Liebenberg of the Claremont Synagogue, Cape Town, South Africa, has used our Rabinowitz family genealogy and specifically my grandfather, as the theme of his Claremont Wynberg Good Shabbos Drosha.

My grandfather, Rev Nachum Mendel Rabinowitz, was born in Orla, near Bialystok in Poland in 1887. Orla was part of the Grodno Guberna. Records of Orla can be found in the archives in Grodno, Belarus.

Nachum Mendel moved to South Africa from Palestine in 1911 and became a leading religious figure in Cape Town. He was known for his many roles at the Constitution St and Vredehoek shuls and also was the secretary of the Bikkur Cholim for 42 years. Records and articles about Nachum Mendel can be found at the National, Gitlin and Kaplan Libraries in Cape Town.

St Petersburg 4 – 26 May 2012

A walk to the Nikolskiy Cathedral, past Yusupov Palace where Rasputin met his end, the statues of Rimsky Korsakov and Glinka. The fire station, a Russian Chinese restaurant, an old dirty car.

The Trinity Church. A change in weather means on with the poncho, but it only lasts a couple of minutes. A market next to the church, eating chinese and mexican in Russia, a building needing repair, and just married in a Min in Russia.

The drive to the airport. Some interesting buildings and monuments along the way.

The airport terminal does not have any airline signs until after one passes through security.

Peter and Paul Fortress across the Neva River.

Watch how people throw money at the Wallaby, the kid then jumps across and then counts the money he has just made.

Also, check out the beach. Enjoying the sunshine.
