4/29/2020 3:04 PM I'm happy I found the translation for the word lik (ליק).

According to https://www.iddish.co.il/Dictionary.aspx it means: alley, lane or passageway.

I had some ancestors in Calarasi.

If you have an idea where I can find documentation of their asking permission, visa or passport application etc. before leaving to Israel (Palestine) I would appreciate it.

Good luck!
