Biography for Jack Likwornik
My ancestor from seven generations ago was Josef Moshe Liquornik.
He was the first known RABBI IN SADAGURA, serving from the late
1700s to 1807. He was buried in Israel in 1808 but I have not been able
to locate the grave. Prior to being a rabbi in Sadagura he was known as
the MAGGID of KOMARNO. His son, JESHEYAHU LIQUORNIK was rabbi of
Sadagura from 1807 to 1828. Josef, his father and grandfather,
were born in OSTROG (W). His grandfather negotiated with the
Russian general, Suvarov, to save the town.
My great uncle
MORITZ LIQUORNIK was head of the Czernowitz chapter of the
Bukovina Zionist State Organization. He helped greet Chaim
Weizmann in 1927. He wrote a book about the history of
Czernowitz, possibly published in Tel Aviv, in 1944. I bought the
manuscript, in auction. It is neatly written, in German, and 60 pages
long. I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE HELP IN TRANSLATING SOME OR ALL OF IT.
I could pay a modest fee.
