- I would like to add to the information you listed in your last message,
since I have read many sources,concerning Radoshkovichi,including yours.
After the war efforts have been made to establish the Jewish community, by
local remaining 30 Jews. The synagogue was closed, due to "not enough
number of Jews, to hold a synagogue", since according to Soviet standards,
as written in the petition by the community to central religious commity
in Moscow in the reply, the community can have a synagogue, only if it has
20 religious members who use it, but according to the protocol, the number
of religious Jews was lesser. The petition was sent by Isaac Isacson. I
read it in the Central Shprintzak archives in Hebrew University .
According to Izkor book of Radoshkovichi another prominent person, who
was born here was Arie Leib Scheinhaus, writer, and Zionist publisher,
closer friend of Mordechai Zevi Mane,he established a Zionist
organization,called Kiryat Sefer in Klaipeda,Lithuania, and was one of the
prominent figures in Jewish community. Although there is no street after
him, but there is a street in Tel-Aviv after Mordechai Zevi Maneh, named
so according to request of the remnants of Radoshkovichi community in
Hope to add to your information.
- Dear Fellow Radoshkovich Researcher:
I have a very rare history and description of Radoshkovich published in 1896
in Russian, 2 pages, that has never been translated into English. Are you or
someone you know willing/able to translate this? It is not specifically
about the Jews of Radoshkovich, but I believe it is the only history of the
place from such an early date. Please contact me if you are able to help.
