Yentel Reichel de Povodofsky z”'l




Yentel Reichel was the daughter of Yitzhak Reichel. Her mother was Laia-Reizel. Yentel was born in 1897 in Postov. She was orphaned very young and was raised by relatives. At a young age she left for Vilna where she worked in a bakery. Later, after the second World War, she returned to Michalishok. She was married in Postov to Yedida Povodofsky who came from Ozorkov, near Lodz. Yedida served in the Polish army, after the war ended he remained in Postov. In 1929 Yentel arrived in Argentina. She made her home in the Jewish quarter, “Wisha Krespa”. Here Yentel became the “mother”of all the Landsleit that came from all the shtetls around Postov. Her home was the meeting place for all the expatriots. We felt the warmth radiating from our “old home”. Her death, November 24, 1955, left a hole in our hearts. Her friendship will always be remembered. Her funeral drew a large crowd. Her eulogy was read by Ruben Lewin.
