The Wyszkower Aid Society in New York that is already
functioning for 70 years, mourns the passing of

Reb Mordekhai Czekhanow, of blessed memory,
(Born 1891, died November 21, 1960)

One of the most prominent members in the last 45 years,
praiseworthy, devoted activist for Wyszkower relief.

In sorrow for the great loss

V. Radziminsky – President
J. Zajdenberg – Vice-president


A Word on His Grave

A righteous man goes before you –
Took his final steps on this earth.
Scores of years with Mordekhai. How fortunate that
It was destined for us to be together.

Mordekhai was our teacher –
We had to understand him,
That it is not more beautiful in human life
Than to love others, not just yourself.

His heart bled for human suffering
His heart trembled for Jewish pain;
Still, his smile never wanted to leave him,
He felt: that the Jewish nation will not die out.

Mordekhai had a heart and a desire
That for another person's pain and need
Not only to help with his feelings
But also to share his piece of bread.

We honor and give respect to his name –
Mordekhai the warm person and fiery Jew
To the wreath of flowers I add
My own flower, my Jewish song …

My deepest sorrow for the great loss of thousands of Wyszkower landsleit, holy martyrs, who were murdered by Nazi hands and are no longer here with us.

On their unknown graves – my hot tears.

Honor their memory!

In Eternal Memory

Our beloved and unforgettable husband and father

Avrohom Mordekhai (Max) Czekhanow, of blessed memory

(born in Wyszkow 1891 – died in New York, November 21, 1960)

Greatly supported community projects; participated for many years in the activities in the Wyszkower Societies in New York; was secretary of the Wyszkower United Relief; raised his family in his spirit, putting forward his traditions and also perpetuating his name through planting trees in the Keren Kayemet forests in Israel.

With pain and honor, we will always remember his name.

Also, all those who knew him and worked with him, will not forget his devotion for the nation and for our landsleit.

In Eternal Memory

Mr. Yakov Zilberstajn Hakohen, of blessed memory

One of the most devoted activists in the Wyszkower Society, and in general for Wyszkower landsleit. There was no task too difficult for him. Neither rain nor snow stopped him from his mission. He held many positions, was president of the Society, chairman of the Relief Committee, treasurer, and more. He was always encouraging others. He himself had a generous hand and urged others to give.

Twelve years ago, the Zilberstajn family and all other Wyszkower landsleit lost their beloved and honored Yakov Zilberstajn. He is greatly missed by the Wyszkower landsleit and it is difficult to find someone who can take his position, who, with such energy and success, could conduct his work for the Wyszkower landsleit.

Yakov Zilberstajn, may he rest in peace, will not be forgotten.

His work in community projects is chaired by his wife Molly and the children, who are in sadness all these years, for their dear father and beloved husband. They also loyally take part [in addressing] all Wyszkower problems. They also contributed $100 towards the Yizkor Book.

Honor his memory!

The Wyszkower Society, New York;
Wife Molly Zilberstajn and children

We, Wyszkower landsleit in New York, gathered together on November 29, 1959, for a memorial gathering, organized by the United Wyszkower Aid Society for Israel – to remember the 20th yahrtag [date of death] of the mass murder in our home town of Wyszkow, committed by the Nazi murderers in the Second World War –

Express our pain for the thousands of murdered holy martyrs, our landsleit, and our very own dear ones.

We shout out our pain for the millions of holy martyrs of our nation, destroyed by the Nazis only because they were children of the Jewish People.
