Agricultural Workers, Field and Forest Contractors

Shmuel Kurmansky

Translated by David Goldman

At the outset of our survey, we should note that real farmers, that is, Jews who worked with their hands, were very few in Yedinitz. Those who worked the land with their hands were Berl Dudeleches (near the Pansky River) and Mordechai Davids (near the Seminary River). The word “river” does not mean a real river, but a standing pool. As farmers, they also included Jewish tobacco growers who cultivated dozens of acres of land.

Social Assistance Institutions

Mordechai Reicher

        In Yedinitz, just like everywhere else, there were all types of associations, committees, and public institutions intended to assist the needy, of which there were many. These were voluntary charity institutions. The activists and contributors were volunteers. These associations and committees had Hebrew names that were common and accepted in Jewish communities: [English translations:] Aid for the Poor, Free Loan Society, Poor Bride Aid Society, Aid for the Sick, Passover Aid Society, Clothing Fund, Anonymous Charity Fund, etc. These committees were mostly unelected, and the activists considered their work to be sacred tasks.
