HEALTH INSTITUTIONS IN YEDINITZ

Early Health Institutions

Shmuel Kafri

Translated by David Goldman

The first institution to provide medical services to the ill in Yedinitz was very modest, and was located in the private home of Nachman Weinshenker, of one of the wealthiest and most respected families in town.

The Yaakov Shimon Kaufman Hospital

Mordechai Reicher


        There were many versions of stories circulating in town about the founders of the first city hospital – the Yaakov Shimon Kaufman Hospital – and Kaufman's large family. Idel Galperin's version is considered factual. He was named after Yaakov's father, R. Idel of Putchumban (a village near Yedinitz).

The Shmuel and Chava Loibman Jewish Hospital

Sheindel Sadovnik-Berezin

Sheindele Berezin-Sadovnik, died in Bucharest in January 1973 I arrived in Yedinitz to live with my aunt Chava Loibman in 1930, half a year after the death of uncle Shmuel. He died at the age of seventy, on the day before the eve of Shavuot. He bequeathed the synagogue that he founded a couple of decades earlier to the congregants. His large home, where he and his wife lived, was bequeathed to be turned into a hospital. In addition to the building, he left over a large sum of money.
