The Jewish family name Nekrich originates from the village Nekrashi next to Slutsk, Belarus. I invite the progeny to research the roots and establish connections.

The Israeli branch changed their last name into “Shalev“, taking the phonological meaning of “Nekrich” as “not shouting”.

I have started a family tree of Abram son of Itzka Nekrich, born in 1776 in Slutzk. It is based on revision lists published on

I can translate documents from Russian/Hebrew and make trips to the Central Israeli Archive of the History of the Jewish People or even to Belarus.

It would be nice to get information about your Nekrich branch in order to see, how it fits into the large picture!

I will be happy to get some feedback.

P.S. I am planning a trip for the summer 2019 to Belarus - Mir, Novardok, Sluzk, Bobruisk. We will be assisted by the local rabbis If anybody from the broad Nekrich clan is interested in joining, please be in touch.
