Mendele Personal Notices and Announcements

Date: Aug. 1, 2019

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.

Does anyone know if there are heirs in possession of the rights to the work
of Menakhem Borayshe (Menahem Boraishe)?  I have a strong interest in
translating some of the poet's work, and I know for sure only that his
granddaughter Ada passed away in 2005 (and his widow Sore before that).
Thank you in advance, Yankl Levitow
