Stropkov’s “Daughters”


·         Through the eighteenth and nineteenth century, the Stropkov Jewish community  maintained  close ties with the small number of Jewish families who owned  estates, taverns, or groceries  in her “daughter” villages.   

·         Besides sharing  familial and economic ties,  "Mother"  Stropkov also shared  her  religious institutions, shuls, burial services, ritual bathhouse,  kosher butchers, and  her   educational system with her “daughters.”

·         Although villagers were obligated to register  all births, marriages and deaths in Stropkov,  one  should consider researching   her “daughters” too-- to leave no stone unturned.
