About Miriam Jacobowitz

(Mary, Refka)

Leah Kreinik Jacobowitz's dream, "As I Remember," 1962, Addendum, p.6

" After I became engaged to Pop (we lived on W. 81st St. in N.Y. and I had my own room), I dreamed one night that I WOKE UP and sat up in bed; a visitor was coming in, a medium height woman, dressed in dark or black clothes covering her completely; she had red hair, a freckled face with a longish nose, and I KNEW HER! she was Pop's Mother. She slowly walked along to the head of the bed, and disappeared, and then I really woke up. I had never seen a photo of her, and when I described her to Pop, he said that was surely his Mother, as much as he could remember her. She was devoted to her scholarly husband, more suited for study than business; worked hard all her life, helping with dairy produce to sell, and died at an early age after a miscarriage, like the kind I had twice."

Marriage Certificate says Leah is Age 20. She is actually 24. Her name is spelled "Lea Kreinick." Despite Dudu's report, the person performing the ceremony is not Wolf Jacobowitz. I can't read that signature.


"Wedding invitations were issued one to a family in those days, and that meant the whole family, with just a prayer that the small fry would be left at home. Father Wolf Jacobowitz performed the ceremony, just as in due time, he performed the ritual ceremony for Bud and Norman. The reception was in Manhattan Lyceum on E. 4th St. Over six hundred people came (four hundred invitations issued), besides many gate crashers, and the tables were set four times, yet Mother had some chickens to take home." Leah Kreinik Jacobowitz, As I Remember, 1962, pp. 34-35.

"... our marriage was started with the covenant that we would never go to sleep angry; we would talk things over, make peace. There was no domineering, only cooperation." LKJ As I Remember, 1962, p.79
