attachments and write MENDELE PERSONALS in the subject line.

3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has posted

From: Robert A. Rothstein <rar at slavic.umass.edu>

Date: May 31

It is with great sadness that I write to report that Michael (Motl)
Rosenbush died today (Saturday, May 30). Motl was born in Lublin in 1937
and spent the war years together with his family in the Soviet Union,
initially in Siberia and later in Ukraine. The family returned to Lublin in
1946, later moved to Warsaw and still later to Belgium and eventually to
Canada. Motl had three careers: as a Professor of Russian, later as a
personnel consultant and, after his retirement, as an active Yiddishist,
who helped to develop the *svive* movement and contributed importantly to
the preparation of the Beinfeld-Bochner *Comprehensive Yiddish-English
Dictionary. *He will be sorely missed. *Koved zayn ondenk!*
