Rachel Gordin

Artist Rachel Gordin was born and raised in Moshav Bitsaron Father; Meir Gurevitz  mother Bela nee

 Shulman .  She embarked on her artistic career with a series of paintings "Earth - Man". In her search for the appropriate colors and materials she went out to the yard, collected lumps of earth, mixed them with glue and pigments, and applied them with her hands onto the canvas, without using a brush.

Eventually she began to paint an "ecological" series, to protest against the damage man causes to nature, which is also a metaphor for the injury man inflicts on man: forest fires and logging that turn green vegetation into dead skeletons and scorched land. Some of the paintings feature border fences as well. Many of them evoke a sense of rift, collapse, destruction and considerable melancholy.

Most of Gordin's works are characterized by rich, warm colors, although her palette is limited. She uses mostly industrial paint.

Gordin participates on a regular basis in artistic events on behalf of peace, such as "Our Answer is Peace" at the Lebanese security fence, and the peace project at Givat Haviva.

Gordin is currently working on a series of paintings entitled "Rorschach" (Inscapes), evocative of the bleak mood encompassing daily life. The works are composed of diptychs of identical paintings, with one painting seemingly the "monoprint" of the other. These works feature rich colors and imaginative shapes and textures. Viewers can interpret these pictures freely, according to their imagination.

Gordin's work has recently reached a new peak of intensity, due in large part to the pressure of frequent exhibitions in Israel and abroad.

 

Rachel Gordin

Born on moshav Bizaron. Graduate of the Art Teachers Training College. Studied in the Avni Institute of Art, Tel Aviv and in the Artists' Studios, Ein Hod.

Aaron Schulman of Mozyr, Belarus (listed as Aron Schulmann on his passenger list from 1904) is my eldest known ancestor, born in 1874.
He married Sophie Holstein, and had three children- only one survived labor.
His son Abraham (b. 1899) was a New York City Assemblyman. Although the family is listed as living in Brooklyn in the 1910 Census, they are listed in a 1911 Rochester City Directory.

The Shulman family of the Slabodka Yeshiva

Shulman Family ( of Slabodka)

My husband and I would often meet Rabbi Natan Shulman and his gracious wife; Lea (the daughter of Rav Yechiel Sclessinger) , during their stay in Los Angeles. Every winter they would come from France ( Strasbourg) and spend a few months in Los Angeles. They modestly spoke about their most distinguished ancestry when I probe them to talk about their childhood.

Reb Mordechai Shulman married Chaia Miryam, the daughter of Rabbi Isaac Sher of Slobodka. Her mother was the daughter of Rabbi Nosson Hirsh Finkel ( The Saba from Slobodka) They had three children. Their only son ; Natan Zvi-Hirsh ( named after his illustrious great grandfather , Nosson Hirsh Finkel) was born in Kovno in 1930. They also had two daughters; Ester Rivka and Avigail Gutl...Reb Mordechai Shulman replaced his father in law as one of the heads the Yeshiva of Slobodka ( in Kovno) after his father in law left to establish a Yeshiva in Eretz Israel. Hard times fell on the Yeshiva during the late 1930s’ and Reb Mordechai traveled to America in the hopes of finding a place for the Yeshiva in the United States. As the war started in 1939 he was trying to get his family to join him in America, but this was not to be…..In 1940 the Soviets annexed Lithuania and did not let Lithuania citizens leave the region other then exiling them to Siberia

In June of 1941 Germany attacked the Soviet Union. From this point of time there was no communication between Rav Mordechai Shulman in America and his family in Kovno for the next four years.

Chaia Miryam Shulman was a brilliant woman by accounts of all who knew her. She was determined against all the odds to save  her children. Already in the first months of the Jews being transferred to the Kovno Ghetto many of the children who lived in what was known as the small ghetto were killed. One day Chaia Miryam was able to leave the Ghetto and get in touch with a Jesuit priest named Smilgevi?ius. She implored him to help her as her colleague. First, it was well known in Kovno that her family was connected to a dynasty of Jewish religious leaders. Second; her husband is a Rabbi, which is similar job to his- So, he should help her children to find Lithuanian families who would keep them safe until the area is liberated. The Jesuit priest promised to help. Some guards were bribed and the children were transferred to the priest..- The priest arranged for her son, Natan, to hide with the family Tautkuvenia. There was another Jewish girl who hid with the same family. Each of the family members hid with a different Lithuanian family.  For the daughter Ester it was a little easier, she was red head and did not look Jewish. It was difficult for Natan who had to hide from the neighbors and the Germans. He could not keep Kosher and the years of the Shoah left a big imprint on his life. As the area of Kovno was liberated by the Soviets in the summer of 1944, the family united again. They got in touch with the father in America and eventually they all moved to Eretz Israel.

  1. Some information about the father;
    Mordechai Zee’v; was born in 1902 well travel already as a child going to several yeshivas. Amongst others he studied with Chafetz Chaim- typically to his lifestyle even his Bar Mitzvah was on the road- people he only recently met arranged for cakes and food for him. . No family members were present. He later studied in Slobodka were he made very good impression on everyone who met him. He also studied in Chevron Slobdka and later returned to Kovno to the Slobodka Yeshiva and eventually married the daughter of the Rosh Yeshiva, Rav Sher. He was sent to the U.S to find a place in New York for the yeshiva for safety. He sent for his family to joined him but the trip was delayed ( his wife was reluctant to have her kids grew in America)  By the time she agreed It was too late- war started and he could not get in touch with his family or the Yeshiva in Kovno. He lived with his uncle, Avraham Yosef Shulman, who lived in CrownHeights. When the head of yeshiva Chafet Chaim; Rav Lebuvitz passed away- his son Hanoch was too young to take over- Mordechai took over for him. The years of the war and being away from the people he loved took the tall on him. He became sick. Later they met in  Jerusalem  (1945)- They came to Israel a year after Kovno was liberated by the Soviets.. -- HaRav Mordechai Shulman zt'l succeeded his father-in-law HaRav Sher as rosh yeshiva of Slobodke in Bnei Brak -- HaRav Nosson Tzvi Shulman who married Lea, the daughter of Rav Yechiel Sclessinger, succeeded his father as rosh yeshiva of Slobodke in Bnei Brak and the husbands of his sisters;  Ester Rivka Zuks and Avigal Gutl Hirsh, replaced him when he became sick.

Some information from the internet about Natans’ grandmother;

Beile Dvora Shulman (nee Lev) was the wife of Reb Simcha Shmuel Shulman, son of Moshe Gdalyahu and Ester Rivka nee Friedman. Reb Simcha Shmuel Shulman received semichah (ordination) from the Aruch HaShulchan (Rabbi Yechiel Michel Epstein), beginning with the words: Simchah B'MiOno V'Shmuel B'Korai Shmo. Yet he refused to accept a rabbinical position, and became a manufacturer. After he died at the young age of forty, his young widow dedicated the rest of her life to raising her eight sons (Aharon Zvi, Mordechai Zee’v ( 1902), David Yoel, Eliahu Baruch was born in 1905 , Binyamin, Eliezer Shulman was born in 1910, Yehuda, Simcha Shmuel who was born after his father passed away) and one daughter (Sheina Sara Gutstein born c 1896). She raised them to a life of Torah. In spite of all sorts of difficulties, she realized her goal: Some learned in the Lomza Yeshiva (they ate Shabbos and Yom Tov meals in our house for years), some in Slobodke, some in Kamenetz. One of the sons, Reb Mordechai Shulman, married the daughter of Rabbi Isaac Sher of Slobodka, and became Rosh Yeshiva in the Yeshiva Slobodka in Bnai Brak, Israel (Chaim Shapiro wrote it in the yizkor book for Tikotin)

  1. HaRav Boruch Rosenberg, zt"l
    HaRav Mordechai Shulman zt"l would ask for his opinion regarding the
    shiurim they gave, we realize how great he was in Torah. And his
    greatness in Torah was matched by his greatness in chessed, in gemilus
    chassodim, in middos shebein odom lechavero, in bringing orphans into
    his home and in all of his greatness in Torah he was a giant in
    humility. Who can replace him
  2. More from the internet;

Ask the Rabbi wrote that "The only real "requirement" is that the chuppah be big enough for the bride and groom to stand under and that there be room for the bride to circle the groom." I really don't mean to shock you, but I must confess that I am of "pure" German-Jewish descent (a real "yekke" -- and proud of it) and it is not our custom for the bride to circle the groom. I want you to know that this is how I was married, the officiating rabbi having been Rav Yosef Breuer, zatzal, in the presence of Rav Mordechai Shulman, zatzal (of Slobodka Yeshiva). The ketubah was read by Rav Shimon Schwab, zatzal. I hope that you do not feel that the marriage was not valid! In many respects these customs are still followed, especially here in Washington Heights, New York.

 Kalman Schulman ( Shulman)
Writer
(Some Information copied from the internet)
Born in 5579 Av 18th (9.8.1819), in old Bikhov (Mohilev Region -
Belarus). He
greatly cared about his Talmud studies. soon after he came to the
Volozhin Yeshiva, he became Rabbi Itsele's most cherished student. Reb
Itsele knew languages. Like his father he spoke Russian and Polish
fluently. He was Interested in medicine, he was able to read and to
understand Latin. He would even check his students and tell them which
medications to take. However he did not inflate his expertise. In the
case of a serious eyes illness of his favorite student, the writer
Kalman Schulman, he sent him to Vilna to the renowned Professor
Poritshinski with an introduction letter, where the patient eventually
recovered. Kalman Schulman moved to Vilna permanently.
Kalman Schulman befriended many leading members of the community.
Amongst his dear friends were the young writers who introduced Hebrew
to their readers. He also befriended religious leaders of the
community, amongst them; Rabbi Yisroel Salant.
In 5608 (1848) a cholera epidemic, which claimed many lives, broke out
in Vilna. R' Yisroel marshaled his courage and convened many public
meetings, at which he aroused the people to do teshuva sheleimoh, and
to extend financial aid to the victims and their families.

On erev Yom Kippur 5609, he hung announcements in all of Vilna's shuls
and botei medrash instructing the people not to fast, to shorten the
piyutim, and then to go to the outskirts of the town to breathe fresh
air.

After shacharis of Yom Kippur, R' Yisroel himself went up to the
bimoh, recited a borei minei mezonos, and ate in full view of the
entire congregation, so that all would follow suit.

That very same year, an edict was issued by the government to found
Rabbinical Seminaries in Vilna and Zhitomir. Schulman Kelman and other
communal leaders of Vilna sought to appoint R' Yisroel as a gemora
teacher in the new Beis Medrash, while he who had recommended him,
Kalman Schulman, was appointed a Tanach and Hebrew grammar teacher.
After some year Kelman Schulman became one of the most remarkable and
prolific "haskala" (Enlightenment) Jewish writers of his generation.
In 1859, Kalman Schulman began to publish his highly popular
translations/adaptations of Eugene Sue's Les Mystères de
Paris,"Mysteries of Paris" thus introducing the Hebrew reader to one
of the great popular adventure stories of contemporary French
literature. Works of literature of the 1850's formed the basis of
what might be called "the invention of Hebrew prose."
Kalman Schulman was a leading Enlightenment figures of his time with
his romantic style books. His subjects, the love of Zion, the love of
the Hebrew language, the splendors of the east and Jewish history .
His special place in the history comes not form his unique Hebrew
style, but for the enormous educational affect he had on his
generation. His large volume of works in numerous subjects introduced
the Hebrew readers to various general subjects.. Kalman Schulman's The
Ruins of Betar supplied Abraham Goldfaden's Play; Bar-Kokhba, with the
material he sought to write the play.
The first Maskil who was actively interested in German-Jewish
historical novels and stories was Kalman Schulman, best known for his
educational efforts to translate history and geography books for
eastern European Youth. August Ludwig Frankel, the Vienna Jewish
community's secretary, put together a collection of folk stories that
fascinated Schulman. The collection was created on the basis of notes
Frankel took of stories heard during a business trip to Jerusalem.
Frankel added the stories to his diary, making them the second part of
his Nach Jerusalem, Leipzig 1858. This voyage was planned for
establishing the Lemmel orphanage. In Schulman's book Havazelet
ha-Scharon, Vilna 1861, the second part is dedicated to these tales,
while the first is a set of fictional letters written to a friend,
answering philological and historical riddles in Talmudic texts. In
the first part, Schulman praises a miracle worker from Livorno, Italy,
who used his talents in Germany, in order to cut living people in half
and then put them back together again.
Those who read the first part of Havazelet ha-Scharon would not be
surprised to later find Frankel's tale about the Jewish mystic and
founder of the "Beit El" Yeshiva in Jerusalem in the 18th century, Sar
Shalom Sharabi. According to Frankel, Sharabi froze an Arab youth who
tried to chop his head off with a sword, simply by gazing at him.
Sharabi's gaze turned the boy into a column of salt , just like Lot's
wife in the Biblical story. In this story Schulman is not providing a
counter to the stories in Shivhei ha-Besht but rather reinforces them.
It is no mere chance that during the sixties Shivhei ha-Besht was
published in at least six editions in Lemberg alone. In Shivhei
ha-Besht we find the story of the Besht, who was attacked by a robber
(Hebrew: "Gazlan") who used an axe to try to behead him. However, as
the robber lifted his axe he was beaten by unidentified-invisible
forces and lost his power of speech.
Three years earlier, Schulman published Harisot Beitar (The Ruins of
Beitar), a Hebrew translation and adaptation of a book written in
German by Rabbi Dr. Samuel Meir from Achingen in: "Israelitischer
Musen Almanach". In the opening, Schulman added a historical
introduction for the Hebrew reader, describing the time (second
century) and the hero (Bar-Kokhva) according to the sayings of the
Jewish sages, Church fathers and the writings of fellow Maskilim such
as Zekharyah Frankel and Nachman Krochmal. By so doing, Schulman
opened the way for other publications portraying historical figures
and their noble or destructive deeds.
From the literary point of view, Schulman's achievement is interesting
because of the kind of literature it was the first to offer to readers
of Hebrew pastime literature, fiction in place of the serious writings
of the humanists. The enormous success obtained by this first work of
the translator, the repeated editions which it underwent, testify to
the existence of a public that craved light literature. Thenceforth,
romanticism was to occupy the first place, and the Melizah style was
appropriated for the purposes of fiction, to the delight of the
friends of the Bible language.
In spite of his small originality, it happened that Kalman Schulman
contributed more than any other writer to the achievement of securing
a place for Hebrew in the hearts of the people. For the length of a
half-century, he was regarded popularly as the master of Hebrew style.
Romantic and conservative in religion, enthusiastic for whatsoever the
Jewish genius produced, naïve in his conception of life, he let his
activity play upon all the fields of literature. He published a
History of the World in ten volumes ; a geography, likewise in ten
volumes; four volumes of biographical and literary essays on the
Jewish writers of the Middle Ages; a national romance dealing with the
time of Bar Kokbah (a composite made up of a number of translations) ;
and curious Biblical and Talmudic essays.
His language is the Hebrew of Isaiah. The artificialities and the
undue emphasis of his style, his childlike views, his romantic
sentimentality in all that touches Jews and Judaism, which appealed
directly to the hearts of the simple readers who constituted his
public, explain the success of this writer, well merited even though
he lacked originality. His books were spread broad-cast, by the
millions of copies, and they fostered love of Hebrew, of science, and
knowledge in general among the people. By this token, Schulman was a
civilizing agent of the first rank. His work is the portal through
which the Maskil had to pass, and sometimes passes to this day, on the
path of development toward modern civilization.

Kalman Schulman's "Divrei Y'mei Olam", "The world History" is known
among his important books. Harisot Beitar, Land of Russia,
Schulman also had translated and edited many books. He died in 5659
Shvat 5th (15.1.1899), in Vilna.
His son; Michel
Feiner, S. Kalman Schulman: The Father of the Bestsellers [in Hebrew].
