The Fridman family
by James Gross

Part of this letter is an extract of an e-mail from a
cousin, Boris Friedman, formerly of Nanibia,SA, now of
Johannesburg, South Africa.

"An orphan boy named HERSH ZAIDEL was brought to Jerusalem,
 Palestine in the middle of the 19th century by a childless
 Uncle Reb Hersh Friedman from Ponevezs, Lithuania.
Hersch Zaidels father's name was Baruch Zaidel and his
mother's name was Rivkah.  Hersch Zaidel adopted the
surname of his Uncle; hence Hersch Friedman.

At the same time some good people brought to Jerusalem a
little orphan girl of 9, Eigeleh from Pasvalys/Posvol Lithuania, 
who lost her mother at a very young age.  Her father was
Reb Bezalel Rabinowitz and her mother was Gittel a relation
of the late chief rabbi of Palestine; Reb Abraham Isaac
Hacohen Kook.

was 21 & Eiga 12.  Eiga gave birth to her first child at the
