Leah Kreinik Jacobowitz, As I Remember, 1962, p. 69.
"One notable event was their 50th wedding anniversary. We inveigled them to come to New York on some trumped up excuse, the family loaded up in Pop's and Morris Blatt's car, and when we arrived in the Hall, they had an overwhelming surprise. Uncle Aaron and Tante Gittel came from Buffalo, Uncle Zalmon and his wife all the nieces and nephews, cousins, and of course our children, including Louis who was then engaged to Ruth. Mother cried, Father was shaken, and all he could think of to say was: "at least you could have told me to change my pants." There was a "ceremony", the oldest grandchildren escorting the bride and groom, after dinner speeches, and a song by Billy which he asked to do: "Shomer Shabbos" in Hebrew....."

Jersey Journal (?) Article, November, 1930.
(David Jacobowitz's interpretation.)
Scanned original available upon request.

A golden wedding anniversary surprise party was given to Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Kreinik of Brighton Beach, N.Y., on Sunday, Nov. 11, 1930, by their children, Mr. and Mrs. Elias Jacobowitz of Jersey City, Mr. and Mrs. Irving Kreinick of Brockton, Mass., Mr. and Mrs. [Nettie] Morris Blatt, Mr. and Mrs: [Mae] Aaron [Artie] Pepis, Mr. and Mrs. [Celia] George [Isadore] Rauschkolb, Miss Rebekah [Ruth?] Kreinik and Miss Anna Kreinik [Tianna]. The party was held at 17 West Twenty-fourth Street, New York City.

The couple were led into the hall, with the expectation of viewing the place in order to take it themselves for a later date. There were seventy guests present, relatives and friends, who gave them a warm welcome.

There were tears of joy in the eyes of many as the seventy-year-old bride and seventy-two-year old bridegroom were led under the canopy by their grandchildren, Ruth S. Jacobowitz of Jersey City and Horace C. Kreinick of Brockton, Mass. Dr. Kuperstein of Brighton Beach performed the little ceremony and made a touching address.

Many gifts in gold were presented to the couple, but the crowning event of the dinner which followed was the presentation by their children of a return passage to Europe. Mr. and Mrs. Kreinik will visit their birthplace in Austria [Sedziszow or Zglobien, Poland], as well as other countries, some time in the Spring.

Among the guests, besides the immediate family, were: Mr. and Mrs. Zalmon Kreinik, Mr. Aaron Kreinik of Buffalo, N.Y., Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Krantz, Mr. and Mrs. Marcus Herbst, Mr. Joel Herbst, Mr. Pincus Herbst, Mr. and Mrs. Max Krantz, Mr. Julius Krantz, Mr. Howard Krantz, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Kreinik of New York City, Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Krantz, Mr. Louis P. Brenner of Jersey City, Mr. and Mrs. Pincus Wright, Mr. and Mrs. H. Shattner, Mr. and Mrs. Sam Metcuff, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Messinger, Mr. and Mrs. B. Furman, Mr. and Mrs B. Rauch, Mr. Tobias Weichselbaum, Miss Anna Weichselbaum, Mrs. Rae Blum of Belmar, N.J., Mrs. Celia Kreinik, Miss Sara Kreinik, Mr. and Mrs. C. Zwelfach, Mr. J. Pepis, Miss Anna Bachner. The grandchildren, all of whom were present, are, Ruth S., Miriam R., Eugene, Norman, Paula Zelda and Wilfred Jacobowitz of Jersey City; Horace Carlin, Florence, Sylvia, Ruth and Eugene Kreinick of Brockton, Mass.; Shirley Jane Rauschkolb, Morton Saul Blatt, Ralph Carl Pepis, Natalie Harriet Pepis and Saul David Pepis.

Steve Maskell:
But I do have a photo of our great-grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary taken in 1934 (sic). I think that this photo is of S. Joseph Kreinik and his family and not my grandmother's family.

My mother is in the last row, second from the left and her sister Flo is the first one on the left, last row. Irving is in the first seated row, second from the right and my grandmother is behind him. The gentleman to the right of my grandmother is her brother Sam Kellman and I think the follow on the other side of her is my Uncle Horace.

I don't recognize anyone else in the photo, do you
