About Nettie Blatt (Kreinik)

Nettie and Morris, Mirian and Morton

"Nettie is next in age, a very capable school teacher, now retired She is a well balanced, intelligent, warm hearted person, easy to live with. Most schoolteachers are "teachy", but Nettie never insisted her way or her opinion was the best; was and is ready to give and take, and is good cheerful company. She met her husband Morris Blatt in our house at 89 Oak St., with Pop's connivance by way of a dinner invitation. Morris was studying law, working part time with a firm of lawyers, and Pop met him during a fund raising campaign, liked him and the matchmaking bug hit him with Nettie in mind. The meeting was a success, and Morris started dating Nettie; and so they were married." LKJ As I Remember, page 66.

1911

"World War I came along and Morris quit law to sell essential medical supplies, settling in Philadelphia. I was a delegate to a Hadassah Convention there, and I stayed in their apartment. They were warmly hospitable, I enjoyed my stay, saving Hadassah hotel expenses besides. The death of Morris' mother brought them back to Jersey City, to stay with his father in the home they owned. Their first baby, Miriam, was born there, and I was present at the birth, giving me the awesome privilege of seeing the miracle of new life. Nettie could write a story of tragedy, courage and fortitude herself. Morrs was still traveling, his father had also died and they came to live temporarily with the folks in New York until they found an apartment. There, the baby was less than two years old when she died. But life goes on, to use a common cliche, and Nettie came to live with us in Jersey to await the birth of her second child. Morris was away much of the time. Nettie became one of the family at once, with friction or change in our pace. After Morton was born, they bought a home in Brooklyn eventually, and Nettie started teaching again when Morty was old enough to attend Yeshivah Day school. He was sixteen and in High School when he became ill with leukemia. It is hard, even after all these years, to write of this. Remembering Billy, this hit me hard, for Nettie had sent me a poem of consolation, the first two lines of which read: "There was a dancing flame once, Before Death had outblown it."

This was an apparently sturdy boy, big, loving and lovable. "Why does this have to happen to me Mother? I never hurt anybody?" That is what Morris and Ned have to live with. They tried hard to save him, Bud contributed blood twice for transfusion.... They sold their home, and after some considerable traveling, with a long stopover in Mexico, reached California and made their home there. After some years they felt the need to be closer to family, bought a home in St. Petersburg, found the climate unsatisfactory and went Miami Beach. They came north in 1961 when Morris needed an operation, and spent a month with me while he recuperated. It was most pleasant for me to have them -- it was after Pop passed away. They are back in California now.

"We moved to Buffalo about 1893, where Uncle Aaron had established himself with his family. He was afflicted with wanderlust too, for in later years he moved to the South. The struggle for existence never let up. Father opened a tailoring shop, Mother and I helped as usual. I attended school for half a term, then Papa needed me to run errands, and do some of the sewing. His work was beautiful, being a perfectionist."

Leah Kreinik Jacobowitz: " Mother worked hard, what with all the cooking, baking, marketing once a week for the Sabbath downtown (we were living at W. 81st St. then), going by street car and bringing back large bundles. We helped with the laundry and weekly cleaning on Sundays. Mother rarely laid a hand on us; she tried her best with scolding, scolding. She was a woman without a "gall," the Jewish word for bitterness; charitable almost beyond the limit of her meager means, loved by the neighbors,m Jew or non-Jew." Page 33. As I Remember, 1962.

"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....."

Married Fifty Years
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
