    Rymanów: Some History

    Our researcher in Poland has gathered quite a number of interesting observations about the neighboring town of Rymanow. The Photographs were contributed by Deb Raff, who spent a recent summer in the area and Michal Lorenc, who is working to restore the cemetery. rym morning

      History: The Jewish settlement in Rymanów is very old and important, but not very well-documented. A synagogue already existed in the 16th Century. In those times, the Jews of Rymanów traded wine imported from Hungary, and sold it among others at the fairs in Krosno. In 1765, approximately 1015 Jews lived in Rymanów (42.8% of the population). In the 19th Century, Rymanów became one of the most important centers of theology and science in Galicia, thanks to the famous Zaddik, Menachem Mendel (Mendele of Rymanów, died in 1815) who was the pupil of Elimelech of Lezajsk and Szmelke of Nikolsburg, and the Map of Galiciateacher of Naftali of Ropszyce.

      At the end of the 19th Century, the Zionist movement became active in Rymanów. In 1921, 1412 Jews lived in Rymanów (40% of the population). Shortly after the Nazis occupied Rymanów in 1939, a part of the Jews were driven off to the zone occupied by the Soviets. In 1942 men between 14 and 25 years old were taken to the labor camp of Plaszów. The remaining Jews were deported to the extermination camp in Belzec.

      The Synagogue is at the corner of Bieleckiego Street. Built in the 17th Century. Today it is in ruins. (editors note: not so, rad on to see the rebuilding of the synagogue). In the interior 4 columns and remains of frescoes have been preserved.

      The Cemetery is on Slowackiego Street, 500 m. from the Market Place. The year of foundation is unknown. Size 2.64 hectares, surrounded by a whitehorn hedge. Approximately 200 gravestones have been preserved, of which approximately 100 in a good state. Recently, two new ohels were built on top of the hill in the cemetery: one in memory of the murdered Jews, the other in memory of the Zaddiks of Rymanów. Mr. Bialas (Grundwaldzka Street), who takes care of the cemetery, has keys to the monuments.

      The railway station is located in the village of Wróblik (wonderful old wooden Greek-Orthodox church) - 5 km from the center of Rymanów (carriage 3 K., seat in cab 40 h.). (...) The townlet has 3800 inhabitants (1800 Jews) and is located on a hill. Hotel and restaurant of Marceli Nadziakiewicz (rooms from 2.40 to 3.40 K.). The only remarkable thing in Rymanów is the baroque Church from 1780 with its high tower, founded by the Ossolinski family. In the chapel a monument in red marble and alabaster for castellan Jan Sieminski (died 1580) and his wife. Beside rym town this, Rymanów is known for its miracle-working rabbi and thus the crowds of Galician and Hungarian Jews, and for its unpredictable southern storms ...These gusts of wind -- the so-called Rymanower winds -- are so strong that they overturn people and carriages.

      First mention of and settlement in Rymanów is 1372-1378; located on the former trade route to Hungary. The local Jewish community belonged to the Kahal of Lesko. In the beginning of the 17th Century, the bishop of Przemysl convicted the Rymanów Jews of having profaned the Christian world. In the beginning of the 19th Century, the town became a center of Chassidism. Their seat in Rymanów had Menachem Mendel, pupil of Elimelech of Lezajsk, and after his death in 1815 his pupil, Cwi Hirsz Kohen (died 1846).

      The first synagogue was mentioned as early as 1593 . In the same time period, the first cemetery was created. rymanov synagogue

      The photographs were donated by Deb Raff; they were taken on a recent trip to the area.

      The synagogue at Bieleckiego Street was built at the end of the 18th C. Although made of stone and brick, it has steadily become dilapidated since the end of World War II.. It is located in the town's center, off the market place, on the slope of a hill. Only the walls of the main room with its square ground plan of 13.5 x 15 meters, the small round tower on the northwest corner and a part of the hall on the west side have been preserved. Inside, in the center of the main room, four beautifully ornamented brick columns with Corinthian capitals, spanned by a flattened cupola with fragments of the vault. In the interior walls a row of arched rymanov synagogue niches beneath the windows; the niche for the Aron ha-kodesh has been preserved as well as frescoes from the 20th C. The original shape of the roof is unknown.

      The following is the Jewish population, as it appeared in the long history of Rymanow:
      1765 - 1015 Jews
      1880 - 1391 Jews = 42.6% of the population
      1900 - 1746 Jews = 46.9% of the population
      1910 - 1739 Jews = 46% of the population
      1921 - 1412 Jews = 39.9% of the population
      In August, 1942, the ghetto was established. The majority of the imprisoned Jews were deported to the extermination camp of Belzec, others were murdered in the ghetto and in the woods of Barwinek.

      The above was translated August, 2000, under the auspices of the Zmigrod Nowy Research Group

      Routes to Roots

      by Miriam Weiner

      The following list of current Galician records was taken from the wonderful guidebook
      "Jewish Roots in Poland: Pages from the Past and Archival Inventories" by Miriam Weiner:

      Rymanow, which was in Krosno, now in Podkarpackie Province:

      1. Birth 1939-1941, Marriage 1939 and Death 1938-1941records are in the USC in Rymanow
      2. Notary Records 1928-1933 can be found in the Przemysl Archives.
      3. Immigration and Holocaust records 1942-5 AP at Sanok
      4. Land Registers 1785-8 & 1819-20 in Lvov.

      In February of 2018 i received this email: with these abstracts of vital records from the early 1800s! These abstracts were gotton in 1992 by mail from the USC in Rymanow. We're not sure, but perhaps the Jewish records were mixed in with others?
      The first is a birth record registered in 1807 for Chaim Torem, son of Pinkas Torem and Sara Rek. The second is a marriage record registered in 1824 for Chaim Torem and Estera Fishel (daughter of Markus Fishel and Mindla Goldstein). rymanov

      NYC Rymanow Landsmanshaften

      Once the immigrants arrived in the United States, they often banded together for mutual assistance purposes. It was also quite typical of the Landsmenshaften to own common cemetery plots. The Rymanower Young Mens Benevolent Society owned two Landsmanshaft plots in the New York City area. They are listed on the New York Jewish Genealogical website. The plots are located at Mt. Hebron (path 32, gate 2) and Mt. Zion (Block 75, path 1).

      I do not believe that this society is still in existence. But, if you have any information about the society or a cemetery plot, please contact Jeff Alexander.

      History of the Bnai Joseph Anschei Rymanow Society

      We received this message in October of 2004 from Jonathan Boyarin, and we pass it along to you. "I saw your page about Rymanow on the JewishGen website, and thought you'd like to know that our synagogue, the Stanton Street Shul, has a historical connection to the Bluzhower-Rymanow society, which may be a succesor to the Rymanow landsmanshaft you refer to on the website.

      Although the congregation is officially known as Congregation Anschei Brzezan, the Bluzhower-Rymanow society paid "rent" for decades to join in the services, and that relationship was never terminated, though at most one or two members of that society are still at the shul. I believe as well that one of our elder congregants either was born in Rymanow himself, or has parents from Rymanow. You can learn more about the shul at our website:, and are of course invited to visit us if you are ever in New York. "

      Subsequently we received this note from Barbara Cohen Pollak: "My son recently became the Rabbi of the Stanton Street Shul on the Lower East Side. Talking to the 90-year-old president, Bernie Sauerhaft, revealed that Rymanower YMB had merged at some point, along with several other Galician landsmanschaft, into Stanton Street Shul. The Hanging beside the Ner Tamid is also one from the shul in Rynanow."

      In 2011 after contacting Rabbi Josh Yuta, I was linked to the resident historical expert, Elissa Sampson; who led me to a collection of documents and photographs (http:> Elissa was kind enough to allow me to use some of those documents and photographs pertinent to the Shul and Rymanow. This is a great example of constructive partnership of JewishGen's Kehilalinks and a local on-the-ground Shul with Rymanow connections. It gives international publicity to this wonderful community while at the same time, affording a information for folks researching their Rymanow roots.

      The History of The Stanton Street Shul

      Located at 180 Stanton Street, this Shul has quite a history. It began with Congregation Bnai Jacob Anshe Brzezan (“Sons of Jacob, People of Brzezan”), a shtetl in Southeast Galicia (now the Ukraine). In 1952 the congregation merged with the joint congregation Bnai Joseph Dugel Macheneh Ephraim; DME, as it was known, represented the shtetls Rymanow and Blazowa in southwest Galicia. Today these two shtetls are in Poland.

      The Stanton Street Shul is one of only a few early synagogues that have survived; a veritable landmark of the Lower East Side. More history and information about this shul is on their web site and they are very welcoming to visitors!

      The Cemetery Plots

      I found two plots from these societies:
      1. Blazawa Chevra Degel Machnei Efroim (post 23), Blazowa & Rymanow, Poland, at Mt. Zion, Path 14 Left, Gate 1; Path 23 Right, Gate Road and
      2. Blazower Congregation Degel Machnei Ephraim, Blazowa, Poland at Mt. Hebron, Block 11, Path 14; Block 43, Path 12

      The Rymanow Torah

      For Rymanow, there is a wonderful treat; one of the original Torahs from Rymanow is at the Stanton Street Shul today. At the right is a notarized 1915 letter that shows a donation of a Sefer Torah (a Torah scroll) by Mrs. Manala Metzger to the Riminver congregation, Bnai Joseph Anshei Rymanow at 435 East Houston Street, NY.

      Some other interesting documents include the Brzezan Constitution and the Brzezan Incorporation certificate, which names the original members:

      • Charles Steinholtz, presiding officer; address: 67 Ludlow Street, NYC
      • Isadore Haas, 1775 Walton Avenue, Bronx, NY
      • David Podhajcer, 14 Jackson Street, NYC
      • Jacob Binder, 453 East 175th Street, Bronx, NY
      • Abe Frisand, 81 Taylor St, Brooklyn, NY
      • Morris Taub, 385 Grand St, NYC
      • Abraham Stratyner, 178 East 2nd Street, NYC
      • Harry Schrager, 212 East 7th Street, NYC
      • Samuel Zucker, 315 1/2 Stanton Street, NYC
      • Samuel Durst, 7 Pitt Street, NYC

      Congregation Bnai Joseph Dugel Machine Ephraim (D.M.E.)

      In In 1952 the joint congregation Bnai Joseph Dugel Macheneh Ephraim merged with the Congregation Anschei Brzezan. In 1965 David Weissman was President and Abraham Geller was Treasurer. The 1965 dues statement of $1.75 for Esther Samuels of 532 Lefferts Blvd in Brooklyn, shows that Congregation Bnai Joseph D.M.E. moved from 289 East 3rd, to 180 Stanton Street, where they merged with Bnai Joseph Anshei Brezan.

      Some of this information came from the Landsmanshaften of New York, a work produced by the WPA in 1938.

      My great grandfather Albert LAUTMANN was born in Rymanow in 1827. His parents ,were Israel and Esther Lautmann. The photograph at the right show Albert (1829-1902) and his wife Cypresse Ortner (1832-1917), who was born also in Galicia. Unfortunatly I don't anything about his life in Rymanow.

      My great grandfather left Rymanow and his children were born in Brafla (Romania) where the family lived until 1880. Then they moved to Vienna in Austria and finally to Paris, France where my grandfather Andre Lautmann was born. For more information, please contact Pierre Lautmann, Vincenne, France

      2. The Wilners from Rymanow

      by Gary Wilner

      My grandfather, Abraham WILNER emigrated in 1904. He was followed by his brothers Samuel and Solomon, mother Chane & sister Rose. They all went to uncle Livish & Rose Wilner on East 3rd Street in New York City. I've gone back as far as my great great grandfather, but I don't know if he had brothers or sisters. I'd like to hear from other Wilner descendents. Gary Wilner

      3.The SINGERS from Rymanow

      by David Scriven

      Dear All,
      My great-aunt Pesia SINGER lived in Rymanow, Poland before WW2 and took care of my mother when she (as a young child) spent her summers there. My grandfather Leon, Pesia's brother, had died of peritonitis shortly before my mother was born. My mother told me that Pesia lost her son and husband when they were executed by the Nazis, but survived the war and subsequently moved to America, however she knew no other details, and I have been unable to track Pesia or any surviving family. Some months ago, I was contacted by Malka Shacham Doron, whose mother Frida Stary knew Pesia when they were young, and had met Pesia in Israel after the Six Day War. Malka extracted details from her mother's diary and sent me the following information: Pesia Singer married Shmuel SHTOFF (from Sieniawa, Poland). They had two children - a girl named Lucia born 1929 and a boy named Ideck (Yehuda) who was born later. Shmuel became the chairman of the kehilla in Rymanow. After the Germans occupied Rymanow, Shmuel was asked by the Germans to give them a list of young men from Rymanow to do physical labour. He refused and was taken to the school yard at Bieletzky street (near Bielecki's house) together with his son Ideck. Shmuel wrapped both his son and himself with a tallit and both were shot to death. (March 1941). The perforated tallit still exists and is kept in (Ignacy) Bielecki's Judaica collection in Rymanow. Pesia buried some of her jewelry in the garden and took Lucia from home and fled that night from Rymanow. She hid Lucia at the home of their Christian maid in a small village near Krakow. Pesia turned a beggar, and for almost three years she sat next to Kosciol Mariacki (St. Mary's Basilica) in Krakow, where a priest allowed her to sleep inside the church at night. Towards the end of the war as the Russians were nearing, a Polish man from Rymanow who came to Sunday mass at the church recognized her. She immediately fled Krakow and went to the village where Lucia was and fetched her. During the last battles between the Russians and the Germans she arrived at Rymanow. She dug up the jewelry she had hidden and later settled in Sanok. Pesia was one of the first survivors and hosted many Jews from Rymanow that arrived later from various concentration camps. Later, Pesia immigrated to Canada with Lucia.

      A harrowing story, which I felt I must share - Pesia was both brave and lucky. It gives me hope that 1) I might be able to track Pesia in Canada (where I live!); 2) Lucia might still be alive and 3) that some of those who survived the camps and visited Pesia in Sanok might have passed on some memories. I wonder if any 'Genners' might have some information. David Scriven.

      The Kornreich Family

      by Phyllis Kramer

      Meet Meier Kornreich, born in Rymanow in 1910; his parents were Josef KORNREICH and Malka STECHER. Malka, who was my grandmother's sister, was born in the nearby town of Zmigrod (to view the KehilaLinks site for Zmigrod, click here) to Leib STECHER and Golda TRACHMAN. Tragically Malka died young, after having 6 children: Schmiel (Sam), Moshe (Morris), Zlater, Zvi and Golda. Max told me many stories about his youth in Rymanow and some I'd like to relay.

      "I don’t remember my mother; I must have been 3-4 years old [when she died]. When I was a child a few years old I had to go every day walking 5 o'clock in morning to the farmer, 3-4 miles, to deliver milk to the city. The farmers were nicer to me than the Jewish customers [they always complained]...milk late, cold etc; they would take me in by the fire. After my mother died, (after WWI), my older sisters were mostly interested in matchmaking. I was afraid they’d send me to the orphan home. [Zlater Kornreich married Samuel MAY, and had two children, Lourk and Malka, but tragically they all perished in the holocaust; the rest of the Kornreich family survived, although their experiences were dreadful; their descendents live today in Israel and the U.S. Some were present in the Rymanow remembrace day detailed on this site.]

      At 7 I left the house, bummed a ride to Zmigrod; went to live with my grandfather Lieb [STECHER]; I remember Lieb sent me into Zmigrod to the slaughter house with many chickens, but I didn’t know where it was. Leib's grandchildren were older; I remember [my aunt] Scheindel who was very kind [the tree is below]; After a few weeks went to live with the Blanks (they had pretty daughters) in Dembovitz near Jaslo [Zelda STECHER married Aaron BLANK]; they treated me well, but she had her own children. They took me to Jaslo and gave me a ticket to Rymanow.

      At 14 years old I went by train to Germany (Frankfort an Maim- a beautiful city) to join my brother Schmiel who was running a religious school; only had the address written down. But I didnt like religious school (we studied the bible), and only went because they gave me breakfast. At 15 years I left to Antwerp Belgium, with no money. Slept on floor of a friends house; they offered me a job with no wages, and sleeping in kitchen. I got rheumatism from that stone floor in the garage. My sister wrote suggesting I go to Vernich which has famous baths for your rheumatism. Returned to Belgium. Wanted to learn trade; in belgium law says must pay workers. I was 20/21, and i met and married Clara Lieber; I knew her mother and family well.

      I was always fond of swimming; I came to Daytona 15 years ago because I heard of the 36 mile beach. I've been here ever since."

      The photograph of Max and I was taken in 1997.

      The Feit Families

      by Bette Stoop Mas

      Virtually all of the Feit families who immigrated to the United States since the mid-1880s from Austria /Poland are Jewish and originated from about 73 villages and towns in the southeastern corner of Poland. Most of these villages are clustered around Brzozów, Sanok, and Krosno and extend northward for about 60 miles along the River San – including Przemysl (near the border with Ukraine), Lezajsk, Rudnik, Nisko, Tarnobrzeg, Rozwadów and Radomysl – to where it meets the River Wisla at the former northern border of the Austrian province of Galicia. Other Feits branches stem from Rymanow and Jasienica Rosielna.

      Galician Jews adopted fixed hereditary surnames after the 1787 law of Kaiser Joseph II. Based on data extracted from hundreds of documents and databases, marriage and death certificates, naturalization records and information from Feit descendants, I have been creating family trees and searching for common ancestors to link together as many branches as possible. With a focus on older generations, my file now contains more than 8,000 individuals, with many name duplications, in 380 unconnected branches. The earliest known birth date is 1800 (Jacob Feit) and more than 1,500 individuals have known or estimated birth dates before 1900. Additional clues from descendants and Polish records are needed to merge more branches.

      The tree of the Feit brothers Isidore and Jacob from Krosno, Rymanów, Trzesniów and Brzozów contains 399 individuals. Two FEIT FamilyTree Project reports are available upon request. The database contains more than 1,200 different surnames. A FEIT Family Photo Album was also created.

      Below is the 1852 Rymanow directory....with house numbers!!

      I have been waiting for many years to match this list with a map of the town.

      And in 2017 i finally got the cadastral map from the same period, so now we can associate the house numbers with the occupants below.

    Below is the cadastral map of 1852. Note the sub title on the upper left portion of the map reads: "Rymanow, posesje zydowskie na terenie wedlug katastru z 1852", this translates to "Rymanov, Jewish property on the territory of the 1852 cadastre". It is quite large, so that you can match the names with the numbered plots above. You can see that the Jewish property is often around the synagogue. Not sure where the Rynec is, that might be also an area for Jewish Stores. Can anyone help?? Note the River Tabor running through the town.
