    PESHEV MEMORIAL
    By: Gabriele Nissim
    
    It is three months since the foundation of the Peshev 
    Memorial was announced in Sofia. Dimitar Peshev  
    (1894-1973) is the somewhat neglected Bulgarian hero  
    who in 1943, as vice-president of the National Assembly, 
    stopped the deportation of the 48,000 Jews of his country. 
    
    Peshev's name was first mentioned to me some three 
    years  ago by Moshe Mossek, he himself a Bulgarian and 
    director of  the Israel State Archives. The outcome of my 
    conversation with Moshe Mossek is a book, due for 
    publication in  September, and the Peshev Memorial, 
    which aims to keep  the memory of this extraordinary 
    man and his actions alive.

    Warsaw Ghetto; they document every aspect of the life 
    and death of the ghetto as well as the fate of scores of 
    other Polish Jewish communities. The first volume of a 
    planned complete academic  edition of the archives has 
    just appeared in Poland under  Dr. Sakowska's editorship. 
    Dr. Sakowska is also the author of  "Ludzie z dzielnicy 
    zamknietej"  (2nd rev. ed., Warsaw, 1993),  a social 
    history of the Warsaw Ghetto, as well as numerous other 
    studies.
    
    Previous laureates have been Dr. Eugenia Prokop-Janiec 
    for her work on Polish-Jewish writers in interwar Poland 
    (1993); Jerzy Ficowski, a Polish poet and literary critic

    Frydman, translator of Yiddish literature into Polish 
    (1994); Dr.  Marek Rostworowski for his work on Jewish 
    subjects in Polish painting (1995); and the Polish poet 
    and novelist Henryk Grynberg, whose work chronicles his 
    own life as a child survivor of the Holocaust (1996).  
    
    The jury awarding the prize was chaired by Dr. Michael 
    Steinlauf, senior research fellow at YIVO, who succeeded 
    as chairman the late Professor Lucjan Dobroszycki. The 
    other members of the jury were Dr. Jozef Gierowski, 
    director of the Research Center for Jewish History and 
    Culture at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow; 
    Professor Czeslaw Milosz, 1980 Nobel laureate in 
    literature; Dr. Allan Nadler, director of research at 
    YIVO; Mr. Jerzy Turowicz, editor-in-chief of Tygodnik 
    Powszechny, member of the Polish Bishops' Conference

    TEN YEARS OF THE REVIVAL OF JEWISH EDUCATION
    IN THE FORMER SOVIET UNION
    July 7 - 9, 1998, St. Petersburg, Russia
    
    The 7th International Conference on Jewish Education, 
    will be held on July 7 - 9, 1998 in St. Petersburg. The 
    conference will be sponsored by  The Institute for Jewish 
    Education (IPJE) of  Petersburg Jewish University (PJU).  
    
    A decade  has  passed since the  beginning of  legal 
    Jewish  education  in  the former Soviet Union. And  the 
    agenda  of this  year's conference   will focus on this 
    decade, through  presentations, discussion  and   
    evaluation  of  data. Marking the end of this first decade, 
    this year's  conference will be a "jubilee" as  well. The  
    conference participants:  teachers, leaders of educational 
    institutions, and social scientists from  the FSU and other 
    countries, will  discuss a  variety of  issues,  including:   
    types  of  Jewish schools and educational trends in them 
    during this past decade, as  well   as  a  historical  
    perspective  and  comparison  of  school experiences in  
    the former  Soviet Union  to that  of Israel and other 
    communities in the Diaspora to that of Israel.
    
    The main  goal of  the conference is the discussion of 
    perspectives on the development  of Jewish  educational 
    systems.  The following topics will be covered:
    
    - contemporary Jewish  life and  its place  in Jewish 
      history (in a pedagogical perspective);
    
    - a decade  of Jewish  schools and  educational 
      institutions in the former Soviet Union;
    
    - the role  of Jewish schools in the Jewish world, its 
      relationship to the  larger Jewish  community and  to 
      its  students  - ideal  and reality;
    
    - a history of Jewish education;
    
    - teachers in Jewish schools - training, improvement of 
      skills, and possibilities for professional growth;
    
    - the politics of general education and school life;
    
    - teaching tradition,  Jewish history  and Hebrew in the 
      context of general and Jewish education;
    
    - Torah, Jewish  classical texts  and  literature  as  
      subjects  in Jewish schools.

    - Boris Feldblyum, Russian-Jewish Given Names (Their Origin
      and Variants), (Avotaynu, 1998).
    
    By: Serge Mitelman
    E-mail: simitelman@pol.net
    
    The newly published book by Boris Feldblyum is based on the 
    older Russian text - "Sbornik dlya soglasovaniya raznovidnostey
    imyon: bibleyskikh, natsional'nykh, talmudicheskikh i drugikh, 
    upotreblyaemykh evreyami v Rossii" (Collection to reconcile 
    variations of names: Biblical, ethnic, talmudic, adopted and 
    others - as used by the Jews of Russia), Zhitomir, 1911, 
    compiled by Iser I.Kulisher - Uchyonnyy Evrey pri Volynskom 
    Gubernatore (Learned Jew in the Office of the Volhynian 
    Gubernator). 
    
    In the introduction the author states that "it (the book) is 
    limited in its discussion of Yiddish onomastics" and 
    implies that its interest to ordinary people may be in 
    "choosing a newborn baby's name or making a genealogical 
    connection with an ancestor". It may indeed be helpful 
    for genealogical research, but other claims are 
    hard to substantiate: 1) more names are missed, than 
    listed - although an advertising announcement boasted it 
    to contain some 6,000 names, and this may very well be 
    true, but the vast majority of them are variants of the 
    same Yiddish names as used in a phonetically distorted 
    form by all varieties of surrounding gentiles, to the 
    2) exclusion of the original Yiddish name and dialectal 
    variants. Basically, it provides all examples of 
    bureaucratic distortions and misspellings, found in 
    numerous documents in Russian.
    
    Hence, in the conclusion, the book records whoever 
    attempts at articulating Jewish names. Its theoretical 
    part is quite interesting, but can be found elsewhere. 
    
    
    ANNOUNCEMENTS
    
    
    - The Guenzburg Collection of Hebrew Manuscripts in the 
      Russian State Library is now available on microfilm
    
    After remaining virtually inaccessible to Western scholars 
    for  65 years one of the most important collections of 
    Hebrew  manuscripts is now available on microfilm.    
    Three generations of the Guenzburg family compiled one 
    of the  largest private collections of Hebrew books and 
    manuscripts in  Europe at the beginning of the 20th 
    century. Founded by  Joseph Guenzburg (1812-1878) the 
    library grew under the  patronage of his son Baron 
    Horace and grandson Baron David  (1857-1910). The 
    Guenzburgs, residing in Paris and St  Petersburg, 
    retained a respected scholar, Senior Sachs, as their  
    librarian and he purchased hundreds of manuscripts 
    including  many from the collections of Seligman Baer, 
    Eliakim Carmoly,  Nathan Coronel and other well-known 
    scholars. Eventually the  library grew to include over 
    1900 manuscripts. Most of the  manuscripts in the 
    Guenzburg collection date from medieval  times. Many of 
    the volumes include three, four or more codices  bound 
    together so that the actual number of manuscripts in the  
    library exceeds 2000. The range of subjects represented in 
    the  collection is vast: Bible and Biblical exegesis, 
    Talmud,  Rabbinics and Halakha, medicine and 
    astronomy, philosophy, etc.
    
    Due to the upheavals in Russia during the years following 
    the  death of Baron David Guenzburg in 1910 the library was
    eventually incorporated into the Russian State Library in 
    Moscow. Only a few hundred manuscripts were released to the  
    West in the form of microfilms during the 1950's, but the 
    bulk  of the collection was never examined by scholars 
    outside of  Russia.
    
    In the summer of 1992 in accordance with an agreement  
    signed by the Jewish National and University Library and the  
    Russian State Library, the Reprographic Department of the  
    JNUL with the aid of local photographers filmed the entire  
    collection of manuscripts. Copies of this collection are now  
    being offered for sale. The cost of the entire collection of 
    Hebrew manuscripts in the  Guenzburg collection comprising 
    almost 1900 MSS (a few  have been misplaced or lost) 
    including 298,99 frames on 35mm silver base film (235 reels)
    is $23,912. Individual reels may also be ordered.
