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

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text to victor.bers at yale.edu 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 prolific Yiddish writer, Ephraim Kaganovski,wrote about Jewish life in
urban Poland between the two World Wars. Now there is a quality English
translation of 20 of Kaganovski's stories, sensitively translated into
flowing English by Bracha B. Weingrod, who became an aficionado of
Kaganovski's work in Yiddish.

Weingrod's  translation has opened a window  into the life and mind of a
writer who passionately describes his emotions, activities, dreams, and
personal experiences with humor and philosophical story lines.

The English language reader is now privy to the author's personal and
communal life, detailed within the context of  the rapidly changing Jewish
and Gentile Warsaw world  in which Kaganovski lived.

The collection includes two stories in the original Yiddish, and is
punctuated with period photographs that enhance the readers' journey. It is
an rich compilation of intimate,  intriguing, and intelligent stories.
Highly recommended.
