My Dilemma.


My grandfather Michael Oberman is buried in the cemetery in Rosh Pina in the Upper Galilee, Israel (I have visited it many times).

Here lies Michael the son of Israel Oberman who died on the 15th. of Mar-Cheshvan 5690(19th. November 1929).

May His dear Soul Rest in Peace.

A general view of Rosh Pina.

Here lies Sarah Leah daughter of Abraham David wife of Michael Oberman, died 17th. Tevet 5686 (3rd. January 1926).

May her dear soul rest in peace.


But, where was he, his sister Esther and his father Israel Oberman born? My great grand-father Israel Oberman was married to a Batya/Basha Goldner who also is buried in Rosh Pina. We understand she was born in Rumania, but where, we do not know. Israel and Batya had two children Michael and Esther. Israel died and Batya married a Nahum Kalisker who already had three children from his late wife, also named Batya. With Nahum, Batya had a further two children, Zelik and Raisel. Michael married Sarah Leah Bookshester, Esther married Arye Levin, Zelik married Shaina Yaffa Rubenstein, Raisel married Yaakov Rubenstein, Israel married Rosa Feigensen, then Manya Feldman, Blima married Michael Greenberg, Miriam married Shachna Salomon.
