Mendele Personal Notices & Announcements

Feb. 5, 2010

To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text:  no HTML, other coding, or attachments;and 
write MENDELE PERSONALS in the subject line.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has 
posted the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.
*The untershames apologizes for the appalling delay in posting this

Sholem Aleykhem tayere fraynt fun der yidisher shprakh,

my name is Fabian Schnedler, I'm a Yiddish singer from Berlin who today 
finally decided to join Mendele.  I'm not yet daring to write in Yiddish 
but let's see--maybe soon.
This is my concern:

In the last three years I put music to Yiddish poems of 20th century 
Yiddish writers, right now I'm producing a CD of these "contemporary" 
songs. To publish the CD I need the permission of the right owners. Now 
I'm in contact with Beyle Schaechter-Gottesman and Anna Miransky (Peretz 
Miransky's daugther). But I'm still looking for a contact to 
relatives/publishers of...

- Jacob Jacobs
- Rachel Korn
- Dora Teitelboim (I contacted the Teitelboim Center via website but they 
did not respond)
- Itzik Fefer
- Peretz Markish

I'm also looking for a biography/a CV of Jacob Jacobs. Who can help me to 
find the right people to talk to? Whoever is interested in the music, have 
a look at:www.myspace.com/fayvish
