Women celebrates 112th birthday


News12 – LONG BEACH – A Long Beach woman whose birthday plans were shelved by Hurricane Sandy got to celebrate her special day with her family today.

Goldie Steinberg turned 112 back on Oct. 30, but the devastating superstorm put the celebration on the back burner. Today, she got to spend the day with loved ones at Grandell Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Long Beach.

Steinberg is believed to be the oldest living Long Islander. She has donated a sample of her DNA to the Albert Einsten Medical College, in the hope of tracking down the secret to her longevity. But Steinberg says she knows what the secret is: her wonderful children.

Goldie Steinberg worked well into her 80s as a seamstress. A diehard Yankees fan, she has seen the Bronx Bombers win all 27 world titles. Since arriving in America from Moldova, she says her love of politics has brought her to the polls since 1929, when she voted for Herbert Hoover.

Steinberg’s son, Donald, says his mother is an inspiration. “She rebounds from little setbacks and gives us all more hope,” he says

Rare Color Footage Depicting Jewish Life in the Shtetl Before the Holocaust


In 1921, 550 Jews lived in the town of Wielopole Skrzyńskie, constituting about half of the local population. At that time, some 20 small Jewish factories were in operation there.

Full Article:…

David Teitelbaum (1891-1972), an amateur filmmaker who was born in Wielopole, emigrated to the United States in the early 1900s and became a successful businessman. He would return to his hometown almost every year to visit his family, and in 1938, he filmed his trip. In June or July 1939 he traveled to Wielopole again, but only stayed for a short time, fearing that war was imminent. It is possible that some sections of the film were filmed on that last visit. The film features members of the Teitelbaum, Rappaport and Sartoria families, their neighbors and acquaintances.
