Rubezhevichi Townspeople in Israel and Worldwide

Translated by Marcia Weiser

Translation coordinated by Jonah Kaplan

With awe and compassion - as the prayer leader before the Holy Ark, wrapped in the talis so do we close our memorial book, the monument to remember the many generational Jewish community in Rubezhevichi environment, which includes -a finished chapter from an ebullient Jewish life that existed and is gone. All that remains are memories recorded in the book - a product of responsibility and hard work of the remaining cluster of Rubezhevichi in the Jewish State and in the countries of the Jewish dispersal - to remember our hometown Jews, the honest and hard working people, who lived their unique Jewish life, founded and built institutions, organizations and brotherhoods-like building their own little state. Even under the years of Soviet oppression, our sons remained true to the Zionist ideal, dreamt and aspired to come to the Land of Israel.

Far from the big centers, along the town's border line, many of them managed to emigrate to the Land of Israel.

Until the outbreak of the Second World War, there were 20 Rubezhevichi families living in the Land of Israel - the first pioneers and emigrants. All the townspeople helped one another all together handling the questions enabling the future emigrants to feel close to the Land of Israel.

The awful war played havoc with all plans. The Jews who remained in Rubezhevichi joined in the tragic fate of the murdered Jewish people of Europe. The cluster of Rubezhevichi in the land, did not yet know of the fearful destruction, suddenly feeling orphaned and unlucky. No one thought, that maybe he did too little, to make possible the immigration here of the family, before the conflagration of the Second World War. But who could have imagined such an annihilation of an entire people?

From Rubezhevichi, Derevna, Gran and Wolma, there survived a cluster of Jews, the few survivors, that the majority of them after the deluge came to the established Jewish State and settled in different parts of the country. Today, there are in the State of Israel 70 Rubezhevichi families and 10 from Derevna, and a few - from Gran and Khateveh. In the first few years after the State was founded, the relationship was weak, but with time it became stronger and tighter. Lately the group meets at family simchas (Bar-Mitzvah, Bat-Mitzvah, Wedding), and not to mention in the same breath, at a funeral. However, once a year all the landsleid meet at the memorial service, which is commemorated on the anniversary of the destruction of the Rubezhevichi ghetto.( 23rd Sivan 1942) [date according to Hebrew calendar].

An opportunity to partner with our contacts, collaboratively active and dedicated work gave us the ability to publish our memorial book. Many meetings, consultations and visits happened, to collect the necessary material for the book. Also at the annual memorial service there was much talk about the memorial monument for the Jewish Rubezhevicher.

Unfortunately our children do not come to the memorial service. Maybe this memorial book will be the bridge that will bind our younger generation to their elders and the old home.

Thanks for all the hard work that went into this book, which also caused closer bonds between the Rubezhevichi and Derevna landsleid in Israel. It also succeeded in interesting our brethren in America, Canada, Argentina and South Africa in our holy work - those who resided there a long time and those who immigrated after the war. We hope, that in the future we will maintain a lively contact between the landsleid in Israel and those in the Diaspora.

With another satisfaction we remember with pride the names of some of our sons of the city from our elders generation, who lived through the tragic war years and came here - after so much suffering and pain that they themselves experienced and witnessed what the German assassins perpetrated in Rubezhevichi and the environs. Their pictures which are here, are an expression of honor for these individuals, who symbolize the glory of the Jewish community in Rubezhevichi.
