As paraphrased from a letter (2 October 1993) from Karl Bernstein. My father George was working with a carnival that toured the Maritime Provinces when I was born in 1925. My parents settled inNew York City where my father worked at Madison Square Garden. I attended parochial schools and was raised as a Roman Catholic, the religion of my mother.

Prior to moving to Tucson, she lived in Long Island, with her husband, Gerald, and their two sons. She worked as a knitting instructress, volunteered for ORT and enjoyed playing Mah Jong. In Tucson, she managed Cele Peterson's, owned the Monterey Beauty Salon, and enjoyed playing Mah Jong, Pan and a variety of other card games.

In 1857, Yosef Rivlin founded a society called the Builders of Jerusalem. Six other men joined him and together the seven men built the first neighborhood outside the city walls - Nahalat Shiva( Estate of Seven).
Yemin Moshe: An early Jewish suburb of western Jerusalem, founded next to the original Jewish settlement outside the Old City, Mishkenot Sha'ananim. The brainchild of Yosef Rivlin and DavidYellin and funded by Sir Moses Montefiore, Yemin Moshe was envisioned as an artists colony. In fact, the first buildings were used as the site of a weaving factory, then a hospital.
The problem was that the area was easy prey for local marauders. Rivlin himself courageously moved into one of the houses as his permanent residence. His relatives inside the Old City were soafraid for his safety that they ran
out the main gate when it opened each morning to see if Rivlin was still alive!. Today Yemin Moshe is one of the most picturesque and treasured of Jerusalem's many neighborhoods.

Lilly Goldman tells us the story of how their family came to be in Amenia, NY. It seems that Irving was in highschool when he took a job herding cattle for some people in Leedsville. Irving,still wanting to continue his education, found the only highschool in the area. It was located in Amenia. He then went out and rented a house for $10, later $25. He wrote to his parents aboutthis nice area and tol them to come join him. About the same time business had fallen off for his father Harry. Hearing about this house in Amenia, the family decided to move there. Faga sentout penny postcards to all of her laundry customers, inviting them to come and rent a room, at their new place in Amenia. So the family packed up and moved to Amenia in 1918. The Goldman'swere the third Jewish family in town. Not long afterward, many of the Rothstein's came and also rented out rooms.

My father, Benjamin Gorrelick was born in Volozin, in 1907; his father was Abraham Gorrelick ( a melamed) and his mother was Sarah Cohen. My grandfathear came to this country before the firstworld war broke out and then the rest of the family had to wait until the war was over to come to N.Y. City, in 1921. My grandmother came with her four children, Sol, Nettie, Lillian and myfather, Benjamin who the eldest. My grandfather was a Hebrew teacher, in New York and my father went to the Dewitt Clinton Elementary School, which he did in a year and a half and eventuallywent to City College; then he became a rabbi at the Jewish Theological Seminary. Most of his rabbinic career (49 years) was spent in Detroit, Michigan. He died in 1998. Does anyone recognizethe name "GORRELICK" or Cohen from Volozin? ------------------------- Elisheva Gorrelick Ellis (eliellis@hotmail.com) -------------------------------------------- Subject: Re: a note on theguest book---- Shalom Eilat--------------------Sorry for the scum on the guest book It's a real disaster. As for Avraham Gorrelick, Yes, the late Mr. Reuven Rogovin wrote some "figuresdrawing's about our Melamdim". The fourth drawing (the last one) he dedicated to "The Teacher-Melamed, Rabbi Avraham Gorrelick" (page 484 on the Volozhin Yizkor Book). Reading it one can feelMr. Rogovin's big esteem and love for his Rabbi and Teacher. Here is the word-to-word translation from Hebrew to English I accomplished after receiving your Email: I should post online at theJewishgen site-Volozhin Yizkor Book section, the English version after its final edition. ---- -------- The Melamed and Teacher, Rabbi Avraham Gorellick, By Reuven Rogovin (VYB page484)----From Hebrew by M. Porat --- ...........................Last but not least, was my teacher; Reb Avrom Gorelik. His Heyder was a reformed Heyder. Mr. Gorrelick was an enlightened andeducated teacher, who endlessly loved the Hebrew language. He was the first pioneer in Volozhin and its vicinity to introduce the Hebrew language in the Heyder as a subject of learningobligation. On the Heyder wall was suspended an announcement written in huge letters "SPEAK HEBREW!" Hebrew became for the first time a subject of learning duty the same as Mathematics,Geography, History etc. At those times, it was a novelty, a changeover in the education method. As a teacher he was strict and pedantic, demanding from his pupils' such accomplishments whichwere seen as "unobtainable". He allocated me two days only to learn by heart a Bialik's poem "The Slaughter City". Two days he allocated also to learn Bialik's "Dead of the Desert". For "TheHamatmid" he gave me three days and to learn by heart Yalag's "Between the Lion's teeth" one single day only. The Heyder was situated inside Rohke the Widow's (Rohke Di Almone) apartment onthe Smorgon Street (Smorgoner Gass), near to Hayim Der Shnayder (the Taylor) house. On the second year of its existence, the Heyder removed to Brovarna Street near "Avrom Der Vafernik's"house. Reb Hayim der Shnayder used to enter the Heyder at evening hours and to enjoy himself extremely when he heard the "Moyshelakh" and "Shloymelah" speaking loudly in the Holy Language.Allthe children, Reb Gorrelick's students, apart of "Mihl Lea Dines" and the writer of these lines had been slaughtered in one single day, together with their loving admirer Reb Hayim derShnayder. "Swords were pulled out and bows tensed by wicked godless murderers to defeat poor and pauper and to slaughter the right and honest" (Book of psalms 37, 14)

Rich in history, the Dennis Paper & Food Service Company has been serving Central and Eastern Maine with pride since 1908.

Five Russian immigrant brothers originally founded the company as a bottling service known as Washington County Bottling Works. Deliveries were made by horse-drawn wagon, limiting theterritory covered to the Cherryfield area.

Eventually, Max Dennis bought his brother's share of the business and moved the company into Ellsworth in the early 1920's. Though troubling times were ahead, Max Dennis was able to keep thebusiness running during the depression and World War II, with the help of his wife and son.

When his son, Lawrence Dennis, took over operations in 1945, productions had increased dramatically. The company had developed its own brand of soft drink known as University Club Soda, andwas now bottling and distributing national brands such as Hires Root Beer and Nesbitt's Orange. In 1949, the company incorporated and came to be known as the Dennis Bottling Company.

In the 1950's Dennis Bottling Co. began distributing malt beverages. This development was so well received by the community that a warehouse was opened in Brewer to accommodate distributionand in 1968 the company's headquarters were moved to Veazie. Distribution then became the main focus of the company, resulting in a change of name to Dennis Beverage Company.

Soon after the move to Veazie, Dennis Beverage Company expanded its operations once again, this time to include paper and plastic disposable products and janitorial supplies. In an effort tobest reflect the nature of the business, the name changed to Dennis Paper Company.

The company continued to grow, thanks in large part to the dedication and hard work of Lawrence's wife Lee, his sister Bertha and the children of Lawrence and Lee: Hayden, Ron, Mark andMichele Dennis.

After close to 40 years in the Veazie area, the Dennis Paper & Food Service Company moved to Bangor in 2002 and operations are now based at the new 50,000 square foot distribution center onThatcher Street. This move has once again opened up the windows of opportunity as the company has expanded to a full foodservice broadline distributor, selling fresh, frozen and dry goods.

Through all the changes in the past and the ones yet to be made in the future, one thing remains a constant: The focus, vision and dedication of the Dennis Paper & Food Service Company has andalways will be the complete satisfaction of the valued customers we serve.

This story was told to Corrine Cullen Brooks by her grandmother Faga Rochel Pisetsky Goldman. Harry as a young man served as a calvryman in the Russian Army. He was discharged from the Army. Afew years later he was conscripted again. Based on the history of the time, men were forced to serve for 25 years. Harry not wishing to do this took the name of another person, as many didduring that time. The name that he took was Goldman. Harry then left Russia under a false name.
