Introduction

 

I feel that I had better start this article with a bit of an introduction, in order to explain to you what has promoted me to write it. As you all probably know, I have always been interested in history, particularly Jewish history, and of course family history-genealogy. During the past ten years I have researched the places in Eastern Europe, where our family originated, and written articles[1] about them. When I was a young girl I used to enjoy hearing the stories that my Maternal Grandparents told about their past, and afterwards the little tidbits that my Mother unintentionally (?) added on. At a certain time, I understood that it was my Grandmother who kept the family together. Then, later on, I understood that it was my Mother who had done this. She was even capable of doing so, by way of letters, after my parents came on Aliyah[2]. Now, I feel that the time has come for me to write up everything that I know about our family. As a student of history, I cannot say that our family is/was a great or important family. The only really important person from our family was my Grandmother’s brother, the British Jewish author Louis Golding; but I think that today there are quite a few important people in our family. All I can say is that this family is important to me, because it is my family.

 

At first I had no idea of how to organize this article. I simply did not know where to start. Then, per chance a friend of ours, Dr. Ida Selavan Schwarcz, told me about an article that she had written about her Mother. After reading her wonderful article, which gave much honor to her Mother and her family, I had an idea of how I should build this article. [3]

 

When I first began to think about writing this article I wrote all the cousins who I am in contact with to ask for information. I thank all of you who so kindly sent information. I also must specially thank our cousin JuddE. Posner[4], who made a “Family Tree”,[5] quite a few years ago.  His Mother, Nettie Posner, also had a wealth of family information in her head and past it on, with love, to him. It is quite interesting to see the continuation of private names in the family, as they proceed on this “Tree”.

 

Due to my email correspondence with cousin Janine Botty, I decided to add photographs. I enjoyed looking through old albums to find appropriate ones. I enjoyed even more so, how so many of you sent me old and new photographs of your family. I thank you all so much for your cooperation.

 

My correspondence with cousins Diane Pomerantz, Valerie Rosenhoch and Jack and Danny Marcus caused them to find a few documents. Therefore, I decided to add these documents.

 

Per chance, I acquired quite a bit of information[6] about Jack Golding, my Grandmother's youngest brother who was killed, as a British soldier in World War I. Therefore I feel good that I have done something for his memory and have decided to also dedicate this article to his memory.

 

I have much interesting (and perhaps useful) information in the footnotes, so I really suggest that you read them. One of the reasons that I did so, is because Martin Golding once told me that sometimes he reads only footnotes[7].

 

Please understand that this article is about my family, the family that I know and love. What I write is what I know and what I feel. This is not a real historical document; but it is a composition about my family as seen through my eyes.

 

I beg your pardon if I have written something that you do not agree with. Please contact me and I will change it.

 

I have used as many biography references as possible from the internet; for I think that this may make it easier for you to refer to them, than would I use books that you may not have easy access to.

 

I will now start to tell you about the background of the family; beginning as far back as I can, according to the information that I have acquired from others, or that I myself remember hearing…

 

Thank you for reading this.

Golding Family Background

 

 

I am beginning with the history of the Golding Family for I have much information about this thanks to JuddE’s  “Family Tree”.

 

My Mother’s Great-great Grandparents were Yehuda Reyentowitz and Necha Tsirilstein. Their oldest son Monash Reyentowitz  (@1825-1914) married Rachel.           

They had a daughter Necha[8] Reyentowitz who was married to Philip Golding[9]. He was a struggling magid (teacher of Jewish subjects)[10], a teacher and lecturer and a very religious man. [11] He was a very strict person and pretty harsh to the children.[12] Yiddish was the family language. The family lived in Cherkassy. It is quite possible that the family also lived previously in Cherkassy[13], Ukraine.

 

Necha Reyentowitz died in about 1890, when my Grandmother was about 8 years old. When I asked her about her Mother, she told me about a Passover, which they wanted to celebrate in the traditional way; but were forced to do otherwise.  They all had to stay in their house and be sure to be under the window level. The windows and/ or shutters (or whatever they had, had to be closed). I asked her if she couldn’t run outside to tell something to a girlfriend. She looked at me, as if to say that it was obvious that I could not understand, and said that it seemed impossible for her to cause me to understand what had happened. I asked what about their Sedarim[14]. She said that what was important was to stay alive, that they lived through their own “Exodus from Egypt”. Therefore I think that this was evidently a pogrom, andwas when her Mother was killed.

 

Her Father[15] remarried to a woman whose name was Etta[16].[17] Etta had 2 daughters, who were about the age of my Grandmother. The children were all brought up together and related to each other as siblings. My contact and feelings towards Lena's Grandchildren are the same as to all of my other cousins. I was probably a teenager when I understood that not all of my relatives were actually blood-relatves.

 

The family immigrated to Manchester[18], England in about 185. They brought their samovar[19], candlesticks, wine cups,[20] and bedding with them from Cherkassy[21].[22] They settled in the Cheetham Hill area, in Redbank.[23] Soon afterwards they moved to Strangeways. [24]At one time it was hard for me to believe; but when the family came to England, they could have been classified as poor simple Jewish people[25] (I thought of my family as very special Jewish people.) My cousin Jackie once wrote an article about his Father’s family. He wrote this as background material. I didn’t want to accept it as the truth. However, I know from one of Uncle Louis’ books, and from hearing this from my Mother, that there was a time that they took in washing to make a living.

 

Necha and Philip Golding had 3 children:

 

Julius- Jewish name- Judah (1878-1932). He married Annie Shimm[26] in 1902. She was his mother's cousin. He came with the family to England, in about 1895[27].

Her husband evidently died in England. They did not have any children.[142] She died in the 1930's or -40's.[143] She was a very good friend of Annie Wintrob.[144]  

 

Lena (1891-1954): She was born in Cherkassy. She married Harry Sagar[145] in England. He immigrated to the USA, where he apparently had family. He died in 1918 and was buried in Philadelphia.[146]  The family was very poor[147]. Harry eventually left the family [148]; for it was very hard to live with Lena. The family immigrated to the USA. The sons, Al[149] (Abe) and Ian (Isidore) came first[150]. Then they sent for Yetta (Rita.[151]), and eventually for their Mother Lena and their Aunt Janie. Auntie Lena lived in a sort of dark apartment, which was a few steps down. She was always wearing an apron when we came to visit. She appeared to me to be tall and thin[152].

He also wrote short stories, essays, fantasies, travel books and poetry. He showed talent in writing from when he was a young boy[217].He did not get along well with his Father.[218]  He was a good friend of Maurice Samuel.[219] His novel Magnolia Street[220] was a bestseller of 1932.[221] He traveled the world.[222] He was invited to many important places. He was once invited by the Queen.[223] He married his childhood friend, Annie Wintrobe[224].

            Jack- (1899-1918[225]) He was also born in Manchester, England. My cousin Jackie (Jack David Marcus) is named after him.

 

Jack Golding was an English soldier and was killed in battle[226]. The British Jewry Book of Honour confirms his service number and date of death as well stating that he was in the 1st and 7th Battalions of the Manchester Regiment. His home address is listed as being 19 Sycamore Street.[227] Apparently this was the address of his sister and brother- in-law: Edith (My Grandmother) and Zacharia Marcus.

 He died at Flanders[228] on April 5, 1918. He is buried at Gommecourt Wood New Cemetery Foncquevillers[229]. His death was also listed as a Jewish casuality.[230]

 

His army certificates are in Appendix- 2 A.[231], [232]

Marcus Family Background



My Grandfather Zacharia Marcus immigrated to Manchester from Sveksna[233], Lithuania with his family, when he was a young man.  Afterwards, members of the family immigrated to Chicago, and my Grandfather to New York. It seems that he and his sister Sarah came first to England.[234] I loved him very much and can honestly say that I still miss him. He told me much about his childhood in Sveksna[235].

After my parents came on Aliyah, my Mother and I sometimes walked down a crowded street in Tel Aviv together and she would remark that she saw someone who looked like my grandfather. When she met Mordechai she remarked that she thought that my Grandfather would have liked him.

He was a religious man, he prayed every day. He taught me the importance of being able to find the place in a Siddur (prayer book) and /or Chumash (Bible) by just listening. He did not like the idea of having pages announced or asking for the page number. I do not believe that he was very educated; but this did not bother me. I remember my Father once remarking that when my Grandfather met with 2 very educated Sveksna people[236] he was happy to be with them; but he had nothing to add to their conversation. He was always a very ardent Zionist. He was very active in the Zionist Organization in and a member of the Zionist Hall[237],[238],  in Manchester.

The Zacharia  and Edith Marcus Family[295]



It is interesting to note that my Grandparents sisters (some are the names of my Grandmother's sister-in-laws) had the same names: Sarah, Lena, Janey-Jenny, Anna.[296]

 

My Grandfather Zacharia came first to the USA. Then my Mother Nettie, came. She said that she would go to the beach in Far Rockaway and look at the ocean and say to herself that her Mother was not that far away- just on the a side of the ocean. Then Edith came with Lionel, Norman and Frances[297]. At first they lived in Far Rockaway. Afterwards, my Grandfather got a job in a carpentry shop[298] on Nostrand Avenue corner Pacific Avenue (border of the Crown Heights neighborhood) in Brooklyn, New York so they moved to Brooklyn. They had to be near the Long Island railroad, for my Aunt Frances (Dede) was still attending Far Rockaway High School. They then lived on New York Avenue. Later on they moved to the 961 Lincoln Place apartment. This apartment was in a 2 family house on top of a Bohacks grocery store. This apartment became known to the family as "the house".

 

This house had a big brown wall with no windows on the ground floor. Neighborhood boys would play hand ball against this wall. Most of them were Catholic and attended St. Gregory's Parochial School[299]. Through the years, my grandparents suffered a few broken windows. My Grandfather tried to speak to the boys, to their parents, and finally decided to go to the Church. He wore a grey fedora hat. It was obvious that he was Jewish. The reply that he received was "boys will be boys". He took this as an Anti-Semitic reply. His comment was "What should I have expected; the Church is the same her as it was in Sveksna."[300]

 

In about 1950 they got a Motorola television. My grandfather liked to watch boxing. One day Frances came into "the house" and said there was going to be a very good movie on one night that week. The movie was the "Caine Mutainy". My Grandparents put up notes for themselves all over the house to remind them to watch the movie. My mother heard about his and remarked that they probably would not understand it at all.[301]

 

My Grandmother told many stories of when she was a young girl. She told me about how hard they all worked to clean for Passover, She said that she even had to kasher (make it kosher for Passover) her tongue.

 

She had a hatred and/or fear of the Russian peasants.

When I was a little girl, my Grandmother was once very happy that she found a little box of sunflower seeds in a candy store and bought them for 2 cents. She said she was going to plant them. She knew a neighbor who lived in a private house across the street[302] and asked permission to plant them in his garden. I wanted to go with her. She did not allow me to, she explained that he was Russian and did not like Jews. It was difficult for me to understand this concept. She said that I could go with her up to the fence of his house; but must wait outside and not pester her. She spoke to him in a foreign language- Russian. He answered her in the same language; but did not smile at her. He did not seem to be too friendly. I remember what he looked like. He had a big nose and wore a big hat (something like a cowboy hat). She took a jug of water from her house every day (she carried it down the stairs and across the street) and went to water her sunflower seeds. She succeeded in growing sunflowers like what they had in Cherkassy.[303] She was quite happy.

 

I also remember that she came to visit us early one Shabbat morning. We lived[304] in walking distance from my grandparents. This is about the only time I remember her coming to visit; particularly a spontaneous visit. I was outside playing, and there she was walking up the street. I remember what dress she was wearing. When she approached me she remarked about how nice it was to see all the Chassidim (Ultra-Orthodox Jews) going in their Shabbat dress to pray on this Shabbat morning. She said it was just like in Cherkassy. Even though this was so near her house, she did not see the Chasidim pass by on Shabbat. They had to pass our house on their way from the Albany Ave. projects (apparently to the Bobeve Shul [on Brooklyn Ave./corner Sterling Place], the Lubuvitch Shul [on Eastern Parkway near Kingston Ave.] the Hungarian Shul [on Eastern Parkway near Brooklyn Ave.] or others  that were located near our house).

She knew a bit about Jewish subjects. She once explained to me that in her opinion; if we had a Sanhedrin[305] today (the early 1950's) we would probably be allowed to use electricity on Shabbat.[306] She was a religious woman; but only went to the Synagogue for Yizkor[307] and on the High-Holidays. If my memory serves me well, I remember her praying at home from an old Siddur on Shabbatot. She was very Zionistically inclined and would have liked to visit the new State of Israel. Yet, she realized that this was more than a dream. She respected and honored people who had been here. She was very proud that her brother Louis was one of them. She once remarked that she would have liked to live here, in the Jewish State; but she also wanted to be near her immediate family. I think that she could be depicted as the perfect Jewish Grandmother, in regards to appearance, language, and way of life. My Grandparents spoke Yiddish between themselves. I suppose they sometimes spoke it to their children also; however my Mother always said that she could understand this language but could not speak it.

 Most of my memories of her are of her cooking in the kitchen or serving food in the dining-room. She was an excellent cook of food from the Jewish cuisine. She spent much time cooking.[308] She even made noodles[309] by herself. Once my Mother told her that it was possible to buy very very thin noodles. Her answer was "so I'll make them thinner". She made them by rolling the dough out on a cutting-board, cutting them and putting them into the soup-one by one.

She knew how to be strict with her grandchildren, when we made too much noise or too big a mess. Then she would express with a Yiddish phrase. She used to call her grand-daughters (Marcia and myself "gutte meidel" (good girl) and sheine meidel"(pretty girl). One time she referred to me as the good girl. I got angry and said that I wanted to be the pretty one. Her reply was "think and then tell me and yourself which one is better".[310] She used to get a bit angry when all of us, or some of us Grandchildren were together and we made a lot of noise and a bit of a mess.[311] She loved her entire family very much. She loved her sister Sarah's daughter Nettie very much.[312] A big picture of her Father and Grandfather (Zeidie Monash and Zeidie Feivel [Philip]) hung in the dining room of "the house". She was very extremely proud of 2 family members:     


  1. Her brother Louis Golding

  2. Her brother Julius' grandson
    Martin Golding [313]

My Grandparents were never rich, or well-off people. I feel that they could even be described as from the poorer sector of our people. They worked at various jobs in Manchester. My Grandmother knew how to sew.  They had a Singer sewing machine in their house on Lincoln Place. My Grandmother did make a few things for the house. However my Mother and Aunt Frances were into buying and always told her that things could be bought very cheaply.

At one time, in Manchester they owned and operated a candy store. It is possible that they then made at least some of the candies themselves. Part of my Grandmother's cooking included rock-candy with a string running through it, and Ingber (a sweet carrot treat (which was cut into portions on a cutting board). It seems that they decided to immigrate to America for economic reasons. My mother once was thinking out loud about her parents' economic situation and asked whoever she was talking to "what is better, if they could be self supporting or the fact that they have sons who are doing well and are able to help support them?"

They were a religious family and gave their children a proper religious education. I have the copy of the letter In Hebrew, which my Uncle Norman wrote to my Mother in America before his Bar Mitzvah. He was excited about getting long trousers. My Uncle Lionel told me about his Hebrew teacher. He was very impressed that this man was actually a Rabbi; but was addressed formerly as "Mister".[314] My Mother had a Hebrew teacher called Mr. Rivlin. He was from the Rivlin[315] Family and had come from Israel to teach Hebrew in Manchester for a few years. She taught me a few of the songs that he had taught his pupils. My Mother managed to locate 1of his sons, after my parents came on Aliyah, and the 2 couples became friends.

 

My grandfather read the Yiddish Newspapers everyday. He kept on changing his mind as to which was better: the "Forward" or the "Tag". Sometimes I saw my Grandmother read them also. She had glassed for reading and for cleaning chickens.[316]

 

Our Grandparents home "the house" was always a center for our family to meet. This was especially so on Shabbatot and Holidays. My Uncles and families lived out of town and my Aunt did also after her marriage. We lived the closest, about a 10 minute walk. Therefore their house was actually a second home to me. After a certain age, I would go there myself. I would spend summer mornings there for it was cooler than our house. I liked to have my Grandfather's attention. If my grandmother would start to yell at him to help her, I understood (after a short while) that I had to keep myself busy.

 

When we would get a telegram after 7 PM[317] we knew it was bad news. These telegrams were usually from the Family in Chicago. The telegrams usually told of a death in the family. Once we got such a telegram with good news: SHARON was to get married.

 

They began to get older and it was hard for them to walk long distances. Therefore they could not attend Jackie's Bar Mitzvah. The Synagogue was a distance from my Uncle's house. Jackie therefore recorded (at his last rehersal) the reading of his Parsha (Torah reading for the week of his Bar Mitzvah for them). My Uncle Norman said that this would probably be better than the actual reading. My Mother wrote his Bar Mitzvah speech and or she or Jackie read it to them. I felt so sorry for them to have to stay home by themselves, when the rest of us were altogether. They were evidently married 45 or 50 years and someone suggested making them an anniversary party. My Mother or my Aunt remarked that this would be ridiculous since they barely spoke to each other; except for important things. They understood that this way they argued less.

 

My Grandfather was hospitalized in the Brooklyn Jewish Hospital[318]. He was very impressed for by what he was served for breakfast- rice puffs and wheat puffs. He asked the nurse to give him a few. He opened up a paper napkin and let me taste one. This was evidently the first time he had tasted dry cereal and the first time he had not eaten pumpernickel (black bread) for his breakfast.

 

My Grandfather telephoned one evening to say that my Grandmother had evidently fainted. He did not know how to pick her up from the position she was in or move her. My Mother told him that we would be there very soon; but he should ask the Negro neighbors from upstairs to come to his aid for the next minutes could be important. They were so nice about helping out. My mother told my Father to run over there and that we would follow. She telephoned her siblings. My Grandmother was in and out of the hospital for a while. She died early on a Shabbat morning. The Family was called to the hospital. This was 2 days after Chanuka. The nurse who was on duty the night before said that my Grandmother had told her the night before about the most beautiful sunset she had just seen (probably the beginning of the Shabbat). Since then, whenever I see a beautiful sunset on Shabbat, it scares me. My Mother went in the next morning; but my Grandmother could not speak. Afterwards she told the nurse that she cold not speak for she had tears in her throat. So many people came to the Shiva: Family, friends, and people that may Grandparents had helped in various ways[319]. This taught me that one doesn't have to give charity with money; but can do so with good deeds.

 

It was decided that my Grandfather could not stay in "the house" alone. My Aunt Frances and Uncle Joe then lived in an apartment Hotel on Central Park west. She rented an apartment for him in the building. He was bored during the long days. He came to live with us. We had a 3 room small apartment and gave him the bedroom. It was very crowded, but he was in his own neighborhood. My Uncle Lionel built a room for him in the basement of their house, in Franklin Square, Long Island. He was alone most of the day. My Uncle Norman gave him a room in his house in Mount Vernon, New York. He was alone for a good part of the day.  He now had 4 homes. One day my Auntie Rose came home and saw that he didn't feel well. They decided that he could not be by himself and to put him into a nursing home in the area. I wrote him letters everyday. The women in the home liked him and tried to sneak into his room. This made him angry. We went to visit him one Sunday, My mother thought that he wasn’t to attentive and said that I should understand that I should stop writing him letters. He heard, turned to me and told me that he hadn't received a letter for a few days. He died a few days before Pesach; about 4 months after my Grandmother.

The Herschman Family


My parents were always Religious Zionists. My Father was a true Zionist and lover of the land and State of Israel.[320] My Mother wanted my first memory to be the UN vote about the State of Israel.[321] She influenced one of my friends very much, and my friend remembers this up to today.[322] My Mother tried to hide these facts of what she was inside her home, and keep her religion and Zionism, behind the closed door of the house.   I could not understand that if this was the way to be, why it had to be sort of a secret. I can think of one situation where she was perhaps correct.

 

I was in seventh grade in PS 167. There was a parents-teachers meeting one afternoon and school was closed for the pupils. My Mother went to speak to my teacher. I anxiously awaited her return; being sure that she would return and say the usual: that the teacher was very happy with me. She returned and was angry. The teacher had asked her what kind of an upbringing I was receiving at home. He was referring to the fact that when he asked me what I wanted to do with my life, I had told him that I planned to live in Israel. He said that I was not a proper American girl and had no respect for what the wonderful country I lived in. I now think that both the teacher and my Mother were right; but I would be in such a situation again, I would do so again!

 

A while later My Mother remarked to me that my interest in Zionism[323],  was such that I studied it as if it was a subject in a university course. Now Zionism is a University course. When I studied in the Ashkelon branch of Bar Ilan University[324] and in the Israeli Open University[325], for my BA, among the course that I took were courses on the history of Zionism.[326]

 

We lived in a small apartment. The house was full of books. Before my parents came on Aliyah, there were about 6000 books.

 

We were economically considered lower middle class and as far as income charts went, we were considered on the highest level of the lowest class. My parents tried to hide this fact; but we all knew it and lived accordingly. I never remember buying anything without looking at the price tag first. When I was young, I wanted to go to sleep-over camp. My Uncle Norman gave my Mother enough money to pay for about half of it.

 

MY Father worked for the OPA[327] during and after the WAR. He then started his own import-export business; but this could be considered more of a hobby than a livelihood. Therefore he also worked in the Lubavitch[328] high school as the English secretary. He regarded this as a job and not an affiliation. When our Sterling Place apartment house began to have Negro tenants, my parents decided that it was time to move. They were not against living in the vicinity of Negroes; but were afraid of who might linger in the vicinity of the house. They were lucky enough to find an apartment that they could afford in the same neighborhood[329]. The men that worked with my father in the Lubavitch office helped with the moving. My Mother remarked that it was obvious that they were his and our best friends. My Mother spoke often about getting a job; but always, after a calculation decided that she would not be earning that much, in the long run.[330]

 

My parents gave charity. At one time, my Mother was annoyed, for she claimed she was saving as much as she could to give charity. This caused her to but cheaper food. Then she saw people who she knew were receiving charity, buying better products.

 

My parents were very moral people.  Yet, now thinking about this, there is 1 fact that may not be considered too moral. This is that they felt themselves superior to certain groups of people, particularly groups of Jews who came from particular places such as Galicia, Poland, Hungary and Romania. When they became friendly with people from these places they stated that their friends were exceptions. They liked oriental Jews[331],[332] when they were in America and afterwards, when they lived in Israel. I can, more or less, understand the basis for my Father's way of reasoning, since he came from the family of the Vilna Gaon. His complaints were on an intellectual basis. The only way that I can understand my Mother feeling this way is based on something that I once learned about English Jewry. This is that the Jews who already lived in England felt themselves superior to the newcomers and didn't have a nice attitude toward them.[333]

 

I remember my Father enquiring about prices of Jewish Day Schools, even before I entered first grade. They were out of my parents' economic budgets I was sent to the schools that we could afford. I received a scholarship/ reduction for them. I attended both Public school and Hebrew School, and then I attended Erasmus High School and Marshalliah Hebrew High School.  I was religious and very Zionistic. This already put me in a special category. I was very happy when my Father explained to his good friend Mr. Harelick about me not fitting into the American youth culture and Mr. Harelick culture suggested that I go to Bnei Akiva[334].

 

One Friday night-Erev Shabbat, there was a big celebration-Simcha for ALL of the Jewish women in the neighborhood. There was a special guest and he was going to speak in the Chovevei Torah Synagogue[335]. He was Menachem Begin[336]. The Synagogue must have been full. For there was no getting into it, or even near it. The street was full of women. When he walked by the Ultra Orthodox women were kissing his coat, as if he was more than a holy man. My Mother and I were part of the crowd that demonstrated that this great welcoming for him. This also proved that all the Jews can be united.

 

Now as a Mother I understand my parents feeling when I was adamant about coming to Israel after graduating from High School. Yet they had taught me that Zionism was supreme.

 

I participated in Bnei Akiva Hachshara in 1962 and came on Aliyah in 1964. Then my parents realized that only Israel was the place where I could be.

 

My parents came[337] on Aliyah in January 1965. At first they lived in the Academic Hostel in Ashkelon[338]. This was hard physically for them in a 1 room apartment, which all their belongings[339]. They found a nice Synagogue in the Afridor neighborhood of Ashkelon. My father could not find work in the Ashkelon area. My Mother used to enjoy watching everyone go to the games on Shabbat afternoon. Yet it bothered her that this took place on Shabbat.

 

They moved Ramat HaNasi, a new neighborhood in Bat Yam[340]. When they first went to see the apartment my Father remarked that the area was so sandy, he had to rollup his trousers, as the sand got in to the cuffs of his trousers. The area developed quite nicely. My father found work in Dunn and Bradd Street[341] firm branch in Tel Aviv. My Mother helped him with the typing of his reports. They found a nice cultural life in Tel Aviv.

 

They enjoyed their Granddaughters very much. They were not too happy about us living on a Kibbutz for ideological reasons; but as far as our daily life was concerned were pleased. They enjoyed visiting us; however my Mother always was shy of the kibbutz members. She once said that she did not feel herself good enough to be in their company. They enjoyed when they had guests (family or friends from America).

 

My Father started not to feel too well; and my Mother was against calling the doctor or going to the doctor. At first she said that it was almost Purim and it would be a shame to bother a doctor at this time of year. Ayelet was then in high school and had a few hours of volunteer work every week. She spent them visiting her grandparents.  A few months later my Mother understood that they must call the doctor. She asked that I come to be there when the doctor came. The doctor came and said he had to be taken to Wolfson Hospital[342]. My mother did not want to go with him in the ambulance. He went though various tests and had to stay in the hospital. The tests didn't show anything seriously wrong with him; but one doctor said to me "your Father is a very sick man". He went home and a short while later had to return again to the hospital. He returned home and felt he was feeling a bit better. I was there on a Thursday night and he asked me to bring him delicatessen[343] the next time I would come. On the following Shabbat the telephone rang. Doria asked me why I was answering it on Shabbat. My mother said that my Father was in a bad way[344] and they were going to the hospital and that we should come. She went with him in the ambulance. We got there and he was already gone. Yes, he had a hard end to his life.

My Mother was very brave and was able to continue her live in their apartment. She came to us quite often for Shabbat. She attended lectures in Tel Aviv.

 

About 3 years later she started to feel bad. She diagnosed herself, as having breast cancer. She agreed that I call the doctor. The doctor said her diagnosis was correct. The doctor wanted her to go for an operation. She did not want to. She claimed that doctors experimented on old people. She came to live with us. The situation deteriorated slowly. The Kibbutz nurse (Adina Baruchi), was very good to her/us came to give her an injection every evening. She liked having members of the family around and enjoyed if they would help her if she needed it. She did not like if other people came to visit. The only member of the kibbutz whose visits she enjoyed was Yehuda Neuman[345]. He understood this and tried to come about once a week. She had intellectual conversations with him. Once she asked him why the snake is the symbol for Israeli medicine[346].

 

The sickness reached such a stage that she fond it hard to take physical care pf herself. We were not always around to help her. Therefore she was entitled to help from Israeli social security. She had a women come to help her a few hours a week. Mordechai and our daughters helped as much as possible. Koby also helped. She got along very well with this woman, who was a Persian Jew. The situation continued to deteriorate. She died in our house on the last day of Chanuka. Yes, she had a hard end to her life.

Conclusion


After finishing this article, I knew that I had to write a "Conclusion". I then had a problem, for I did not know what to write. I felt that I had said everything in the "Introduction" and in the contents of the article. Then I realized what my problem was: How could I write a "Conclusion" about my Family.

 

Therefore I understand what I want to say is that I hope that

  1. We will always continue to be a family; regardless of how physically close we are to each other.
  2. We will continue to grow, in number and in spirit. Jackie has become a Grandfather, in the time that I was writing this article
  3. We will always value and respect our past as a Jewish family and hope and pray to continue as such.

 

I thank all of you, who have helped me, by sending me valuable information for this article, and hope that the connection between us, which this article has caused, will continue.

I hope that you all enjoyed reading this article; for I know how much I enjoyed writing it.

B. In Flanders Fields [353]
by John McCrae
May 1915

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields
