25606 Translation - Yiddish

1/13/2013 4:20 PM This is a page from an old book that I found in some papers of my fathers. Would like to know what it says. It appears to be Yiddish or possibly Hebrew and perhaps some Russian in smaller print on the bottom of the page.
Many thanks

25608 Photo Identification

1/13/2013 4:20 PM My great-uncle Aron Gall was the Cantor. He is the figure on the left. When my parents visited in 60s or early 70s the building was not being used as a synagogue. When my brother visited in 1993 it was a synagogue again with a small congregation. Steven I Herberman had question about when collection for rebuilding began. My guess is after my parents visit as it was not a active synagogue at that time. I would be happy to have a translation of the text if anyone knows Romanian. View the post with its 1 response

25593 Interpretation

1/13/2013 4:18 PM My great grandfather, Joseph Ostand crossed over from Canada to the US in this document. It lists his name as Rostana, but it is Ostand. In looking at his place of birth, it lists Comisk. Could that be Chomsk? Also, for his wife Pearl (Peppy), it lists Badshan. Could that be Botosani? Your help is appreciated. Thank you.
