About Yitzhak Catz, [of Plotzk]

the photo of this profile was taken from page 183 of the

YIZKOR book of PLOCK (1945),

presented by the New York Public Library, in its computerized form.


It shows the grave of Itschak HaCohen in Plock, before WW2. To the best of my knowledge the grave stone was destroyed with most other Plock Old Jewish Cemetery graves - which is being restored a bit nowdays - 2011.

Zvi Lask on page 190 of the Raciaz Yizkor book,wrote very important genealogical information about the Lask [Cohen-Lask] family in Raciaz.

This was told to him by grand-mother Eva Chava Cohen-Lask, who visited Israel in 1950. [He says she was 90. But I remember her to be about 80 years old - b.d.].

According to Zvi Lask, the Jewish community in Raciaz was created by our Great-Grand-father, [Isaac Lask] Itzik Lask [son of Shmuel Catz HaCohen of Lask]. Itzik [also known as Itsale Plotzker] came to Raciaz with his 10 sons, more than 200 years ago [from the publishing of the book/ or from 1950].

They were the first Jews to live in '''Raciaz''', and made their living in the leather industry [בורסקאות].

He had a secular library in Yiddish.


2 more photo-pages regarding Itschak (#6 Itchele Plocker) Catz/Katz Ha Cohen of Lask, were added to my album in GENI. They are from Plock Yizkor book (1976) of NEW YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY. PAGES 50 and 51 (remark 24). In the original paper-book they were on pages 42 and 43.


The remark, mentions page 175 in a book published in Buenos Aires in the year 1945. It had a photo of Itschak Hacohen grave in the old cemetery of Plock. The book name was: "פלוצק דפי היסטוריה" Plock Dapei Historiya It could be identical to the photo on this profile.

About יצחק כ"ץ, [of Plotzk] (עברית)

דוד אברהם קמפנר היה נכדו של ר' איציק פלוצקר (בן בתו). להלן קטע מספרו למטה יהודה בו הוא מצטט את דוד זוגתו:

"אבי אמי היה הרב הגדול המפורסם צדיק תמים חריף ובקי מו"ה יצחק כץ זצלל'ה מפלאצק...בילדותו אחר חתונתו שהיה חתן אא"ז האדיר הגביר מו"ה משה באק ז"ל מפלאצק עזב את ביתו ונסע לפיורדא שם למד שלש שנים תורה אצל הגאון מו"ה משולם זלמן זצלל"ה הגאבד"ק פיורדא....כל ימיו למד עם תלמידיו בשקידה והתמדה נפלאה ובעיון גדול. ורק הפסיק מלמוד הישיבה עת נסעו ליריד פראנקפורט דאדר.
