March 25, 2012
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.

I invite you all to my blog Candles of Song: Yiddish poems about mothers,
in memory of my mother, Miriam Pearlman Zucker, 1914-2012.
Candles of song can be found at: http://shevazucker.com/blog.
Every week (I hope) I will post one poem about mothers by a Yiddish
writer, in Yiddish, transliteration and English translation, accompanied
by a brief
biography of the poet. The posting thus far are:
Week 1: Piously -- Rashel Veprinski
Week 2: How Did You Get So Wise, Mama -- Malka Heifetz Tussman
Week 3: Mama -- Rajzel Zychlinsky
Week 4: My Child Knocks -- Rajzel Zychlinsky
Week 5: Mother -- Gitl Schaechter-Viswanath
Week 6: From My Slender Limbs; If--Rashel Veprinski
Week 7: My Mother --Mani Leyb
I hope to have each new posting by 9 PM on Thursdays.
I invite you also to read my introduction either in Yiddish or in English
which explains the rationale for this project. It is my hope that you will
enjoy the poems and that they will become something of a resource for
people seeking poems about mothers.
