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.

Subject: Chava Rosenfarb and Simkha Bunim Shayevitch

The Montreal klezmer band Megilla has posted a video of a song by Chava 
Rosenfarb. The song is in Yiddish with English subtitles.


I would also like Mendelyaner to know that I've added a page about the 
Lodz ghetto poet Simkha-Bunim Shayevitch to the Chava Rosenfarb website. 
Shayevitch's  was the author of the long poem "Lekh Lekho," 
which was found on a trash heap after the destruction of the Lodz ghetto. 
He was Rosenfarb's mentor in the ghetto. I believe that 
this page contains one of the very few known photographs of Shayevitch.

The page can be found at:
