About the Almond surname

The name Almond was adopted by Rabbi David Almond during the time he was in London England about 1903.. He had escaped from tsarist Russia and its repression of the Jewish minority. He was under suspicion there of speaking out against that repression. The family name at that time was Pruzhinsky, which can be translated as "son of Pruzhnia." Pruzhnia is a town in BelaRussia. When the family moved to America, they all took on the new adopted name Almond. One brother, Yanna, who remained in Europe, retained the name Pruzhinsky. Today there is one remaining European relative named Prozhinsky and he is Valintin Prozhinsky, living in Monaco in southern France. He has a store there selling Objects de Art.
