Re: Help about a 1914 jewish village that probably does not exist today

Austria. Unless it was after July 1914, when WW1 began. After July 1914 the war began, and there were few, if any, records kept.
Once the war was over, from about 1918, Husiatyn was under Poland.

Thank you, I see now that it is part of Ukraine, she wants to find out which country her mother was born in, she was born in December 1914, any idea in which country Husityn was in December 1914, it is unclear to her if it was Poland, Austria or Hungary? TIA

Mass confusion

Thank you. So in her case born in December 1914 you say it was Austria.
I understood it, that once WWI started the border was not definitive until it was reestablised as Polish in 1918

Re: PSA: Don't swipe recklessly for others
True. The guy that I met with was selling his idea as risk-free because he puts his own money (only half the value of your principal though IIRC) in a yeshivish sort of escrow account to 'guarantee' your investment in case it goes south, or so he claimed. I thought the whole idea sounded haphazard and sketchy, if not gezel though so even if it's guaranteed I wouldn't suggest it. We'll see if this sign is the same guy.....
What does he need your cash for?

Re: Master List Of Unofficial Chabad Houses Without getting into an ideological discussion.

Many (most?) of these Chabad houses are located in remote geographical locations where it would be hard to create a feasible sustainability plan (partially the reason for there not being official Chabad centers). The young families that chose to move there face many challenges. They are very far (usually 12+ hr flight) from any family, many of them live several hours from another religious person, many of the women need to fly several hours just to go to Mikva, etc. They nevertheless relocated their entire family, live in poverty, have very hard times getting Kosher chicken/meat (many of them learn to shecht), have to teach their children without any other children being educated similarly....
All this is in order to prevent 1000ís of searching Jews (many ex IDF) from falling into serving Avodah Zorah Mammosh while on their spiritual quests.

This is literal Mesiras Nefesh for the spiritual benefit of someone they do not know.
Many 1000ís of backpackers have returned to their Jewish routes thanks to these families.

Theyre notorious on crowd sizes. More likely they dropped a zero than flipped a 5.
You have support from the highest office in the land
