I believe:
Jack born in Pruzina/Pruzhiny/Pruzhany
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/pruzhany/pruzhany.html

Father in Zelz/Siedlec

5/20/2013 4:39 AM I believe that Father's Birthplace was in province/gubernya of Kielce. A town of 2280 Jewish residents was "pilica" or Piltz within the geographic region
of Kielde.
The person entering the Kielce wrote is with a "C" ---Clearly this would be the link to find more details on the Pomerantz connection/
