About 1947Note (fam)

Adele and Willie aided the cause of Israeli independence. Sherman family lore has it that Jack Sherman and his son Alvin had contributed "money and other items" to support the establishment of the State of Israel. The recipient of these contributions was said to be "a woman in Yonkers." The "other items" were arms.

The "woman in Yonkers" was Adele Grantz. She and her husband Willie received contributions from other Zionist members of the family as well as from Jack and Alvin Sherman. As a businessman, William Grantz had financial facilities which enabled him to freely direct monies. Open contributions were made to Kibbutz Negba for, among other things, an ambulance, which the Grantzes delivered themselves. Funds were also quietly sent to an associate of Menachem Begin, the head of the Irgun. The Irgun was more violent and radical than Haganah, which was the larger Jewish Zionist group in Palestine. The Shermans' contributions to Irgun were almost certainly used for arms.

Menachem Begin became the sixth Prime Minister of Israel.11,12

aboard R.M.S. Queen Mary; they later visited Poland again, returning aboard the Queen Elizabeth. They also took later trips to Israel whose dates I do not have.13

NoteAdele was probably the closest of my mother's siblings. We certainly saw her more often than any of the others. She had learned to ice skate as a girl in Pinsk. I went ice skating with her in the Bronx, probably when I was in junior high school, and was surprised at her grace. I guess you don't forget how to do it.10
1989DeathShe died on 28 December 1989 in Santa Monica, California, USA.14
1994Death of SpouseHer husband, William Grantz, died on 1 February 1994 in Santa Monica, California, USA.

"On information supplied by his Christian neighbor, furs were found in a pit in the yard of Moshe Glotser (one of the sons of Chonya the Bath Man). As punishment he and his wife were hanged in the market place. The same fate befell a woman and her two daughters when fur was found in their home. They were forced to put the rope around one another's necks. For three days their dead bodies hung in the central square, the Third of May Square. The workmen were obliged to pass through this square on their way to work, and the spectacle reminded them of their plight."3

Biography.

Her son Harold wrote this memoir of his mother:

"Fannie Glotzer was the third child of the nine surviving children of Chonya Glotzer. She had a twin brother who died in infancy. She was the daughter of Chonya Glotzer and Hannah Eisenberg (Chonya’s first wife). Chinke, Yitzhak, and Rose were also children of Chonya and Hannah. The other five children (Adele, Maishe, Yankl, Ben, and Paula) were children of Chonya and Chinke Kuperman (Chonya’s second wife). It should be noted that Chinke Kuperman was the niece of Hannah Eisenberg.

Fannie was very proud of the fact that she was one of the few at that time in Pinsk who graduated from Gymnasium(High School). She was particularly proud of her mastery of German grammar. She also was quite literate in the Russian language and classics by Dostoievsky, Turgenev, Tolstoy and others.

Fannie’s father, Chonya, operated a barge business running freight up and down the Pripet river. Her four brothers were all boatmen and all the siblings were excellent swimmers which Fannie was very proud of.

Fannie liked animals, but not as a house pet. When her son, Harold, asked her if he could have a pet dog, her answer was “if you bring a dog into this house, I’ll throw you out together with the dog.”

Fannie was an avid walker. She regularly walked from her apartment on East Broadway in Manhattan to her sister Chinke’s apartment on East 35th Street - a distance of approximately 5 miles. When she visited her son, Harold, in El Paso, Texas, she went climbing in the Franklin Mountains at the age of 75.

In her retirement years, She shared a cooperative apartment on the 15th floor of 208 East Broadway on the lower east side of Manhattan with her sister Rose. Across the street was the Jewish Educational Alliance which offered many activities for senior citizens to partake of. There was a fabulous view from her apartment windows of some of the East River bridges in one direction and the City Hall area in the other direction. She also had a good view of the World Trade Center (which was demolished in a terrorist attack on September 11, 2001).

The years at the end of World War I and thereafter were extremely difficult times for the family in Pinsk (1917 - 1920). Eastern Europe was in chaos following the Russian revolution (1917). The family was at the mercy of Russian thugs but were protected for a while by German troops. Their experiences were certainly the prime reason for migrating to America, which fortunately did not have immigration quotas at that time. Fannie arrived in New York from Antwerp on July 15, 1920 on the ship “Lapland” which was part of the Red Star Line. Upon arrival, Fannie learned the millinery trade. This was accomplished by persistent on-the-job training in various shops until she built up a marketable proficiency. During World War II, Fannie did piece work sewing uniforms.

Fannie passed away at the age of 101. Unfortunately, the last ten years of her life were spent in the Sun Manor Nursing Home in Roslyn Heights, New York where she suffered from dementia. She is buried alongside of her husband Morris in Cedar Park Cemetery, Oradell, New Jersey in Block 16, Section J, Line 12, Graves 25 and 26.

Fannie was very devoted to her family. In particular she had an exceptionally close relationship with her older sister, Chinke. Several times a day they would pour out their heart’s feelings to each other."13

Note

The book A Thousand Years of Pinsk (1941) contains an interesting biographical sketch of Uncle Israel:

Born in 1884 in Pinsk. His father, Ephraim Kuperman came from Berlin (a Berlinchek). Ephraim was an exporter of articles to the large Russian trade centers, and quickly worked himself up. Because of the pogroms in Kiev, he lost his fortune and became a worker in the Basewitch family brewery in Pinsk. His wife, Rochel, who was a relative of Basewitch worked there as a cashier, bookkeeper.

Israel Cooper received a traditional Jewish education. He studied with the best rabbi teachers in Pinsk, showing a special ability in learning and understanding the Tanach, the five books of the bible.

The financial situation of his parents didn't permit him to remain a student for too long, and at the age of 13, they decided that he should study a trade. He himself chose to become a mechanic, which was a skill that he had an inclination for. In his free time he continued studying on his own, learned physics and the Hebrew language.

At the same time he felt himself drawn to political-social welfare activities, and joined the Poale Zionists - the Zionist labor movement. Later he is drawn to the SS movement, and becomes one the most active members of that group in Pinsk. The SS "Self-Protection" movement was started in Pinsk. Israel Cooper was a very valuable member of these revolutionary organizations, since he used his skill to supply weapons, that he worked on by himself in the factory.

In 1905 he emigrated to America. He worked for a while as a mechanic and was active in his trade union. He became a member of the Territorialist party which was an outgrowth of the SS movement.

In 1912 he moved to Chicago. In 1913 he married Elizabeth Pomerantz, the daughter of the well known Pinsk advocat (lawyer) Isaac Pomerantz. In Chicago Israel Cooper became active in the Yiddish school movement that was just getting started. He became a member of the "Moishe Hess Club" whose participants were the most important leaders of the Jewish National Radical intelligentsia.

In 1916 he returned to New York and opened a watch distribution business which he continues to this day. However, he continues his organizational activities in the ranks of Pinsker Branch 210 of the Workmen's Circle. He is highly respected there by the members for his sincere idealism. He participates in all the projects of the branch, but dedicates himself mostly to activities in support of the land of Israel.

He is one of the most active workers in initiating the work of publishing A Thousand Years of Pinsk.

His wife, Elizabeth Cooper, is also an active worker for social projects. She is involved with the Workmen's Circle Jewish Schools and with other important Jewish organizations.

The Coopers have three children, two daughters and a son. The older daughter, Anita, is a bacteriologist, the second daughter, Theresa, graduated from City College. She also attended the Workmen's Circle Jewish high school. Their son, Daniel, is pursuing his college education.17
