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.
July 14, 1935
(George) and his parents and younger brother moved to NJ where his parents ran a Deli at Journal Sq in Jersey City. He was driving a horse-drawn milk truck when he met Toddy through Norman J, with whom he attended law school, also in Jersey City. They were married on July 14, 1935.
"... and Toddy was dating George steadily. They became engaged after George's graduation, and were married July 14th, 1935, right at home. She was just twenty, a breathtakingly lovely bride as she came down that dramatic stairway, escorted by Pop and me until the foot of the stairs, to be met by George.
At that time we still had the colored man-servant who buttled and washed and ironed, wearing a white coat at dinner time, kept our house in order. With the help of an extra colored waiter, we set up bridge tables, preparations for serving were so efficient that in fifteen to twenty minutes the 76 guests were served. The dinner was cold cuts and all the trimmings, the plates having been prepared in advance, set up on every available shelf in the pantry and dish closets. Louis helped in the kitchen, filling last items on plates from hand to hand like an assembly line; Artie Pepis was on the job, as were the other boys. It was a very happy affair. Anna added much to the beauty of the ceremony with the home-made Chuppa she created out of paper roses which she had all of us shaping, doing the cutting and fastening together, making the living room look like a Temple. That Chuppa, by the way, was preserved and taken to Mass. for Horace's wedding to Ann Wernick." LKJ As I Remember. P 59

Steve Maskell: "The pictures in the collage labeled 1935 were taken in September of that year in Brooklyn, New York."
"A characteristic incident took place during her last illness in the Brighton Beach Home (Anna's). Mae had come to live there in order to nurse Mother, and she instructed Mae to be sure and deliver all her numerous charity boxes ("pishkas") to the Rabbi, and not to forget the seeds she had promised the Italian garbage collector, or cuttings, from her beautiful flowers in the tiny garden. In the days when we were growing up and she became angry or frustrated over our behavior, she used a most picturesque line of "nisht" (not) curses instead of slapping us: that was Papa's way. Like "a cholera zoll dich nisht treffen," or this or that should "nisht" happen to you -- the first anyone can understand. [Cholera should not meet you. Never should you get cholera.] LKJ Page 33.
"...Meanwhile Anna had deeded the house in Brighton Beach to Mae, eventually came to Jersey City"
"When the folks passed away, Anna invited Mae and her family to continue living in the house, owned by her. Anna had been teaching, and after Father died Mother became ill and needed someone to care for her. Mae, Artie, and their family continued living there, and Anna found it more convenient to come live with us, at 150 Harrison Ave." Leah Kreinik Jacobowitz, As I Remember, page 62.
