Yizkor!

 

In Memory of the People From
Our Hometown Ostrow Mazowiecka

Translated by Judie Ostroff Goldstein

About sixty-five years ago the thought was born to gather some
of the immigrant Ostrowers and from that large tree plant another tree in New York.

We planted this tree: The name is “Khevra Bakeish Sholom Anshei Ostrowa”, a cradle in the heart of the New York Jewish community on the East Side.

We founded a synagogue, hired a rabbi, have a mishnah society and kept it strong and growing with Ostrowers who arrived later – new branches for our American Ostrowa tree. Also after the Holocaust, it was further strengthened with the survivors of the destruction.

We have become weaker here, but at the same time we rejoice with the Ostrowa survivors in Israel and everywhere else in the world.

Our prayers are with you.

Khevra Bakeish Sholom Anshei Ostrowa in New York

ESTER AND MOSZE ROTENBERG A”H

By B. Goldberg, New York

Translated by Judie Ostroff Goldstein

There is not one Ostrower landsman who does not remember the belssed couple Mosze and Ester Rotenberg.

Ester came from Ostolêka in 1915 and she and Mosze were married in 1920. Soon after the wedding Mosze left for America where he worked hard and saved very penny in order to bring to America quickly. Life was hard there and they worked very hard so that their two sons would be well brought up.

They did not forget Ester's old mother, Chaja Lichtensztejn and so they had to provide for five souls. Their love family was very strong.

After the Second World War, through Mosze's initiative, an Ostrower committee to help our landslait was founded. Mosze gave a lot of time and energy to helping our needy Ostrowers in DP camps. They also helped Jews emigrate from the DP camps to Israel.

A Women's Relief Committee was founded and Ester gave her heart and soul to the work. She called and encourage the sleep and apathetic landslait.

Ester began to feel ill. She became sick and after three months in hospital, she died in December 1958.

After Ester's death, Mosze felt that the wrold was empty. Alone, without his wife, he felt worse from day to day. Six months after ester died, Mosze Rotenberg went to his final rest – together with his dear Ester. Ostrower honour their memory!
