Dear Eilat Gordin Levitan;
I was informed by Mr Randy Daitch that you might be able to assist me in tracing my Jewish family roots in Belarus.   Though my name now is Takahashi, I was born Saul Israel Chodos, in the United States. My grandfather, Israel Chodos, was born in either 1899 or 1900, and emigrated to the United States with his family when he was five years old. My understanding is that my grandfather originated in a community of (I believe Polish speaking) Jews in the Myadel region of Belarus. My great grandfather was named Schrage Feyvush Chodos, and it appears that in Belarus he was somewhat of a scholar, and a rabbinical student (my grandfather eventually became a rabbi in the United States, keeping with the family tradition).  Unfortunately, that is really all the information I have. My grandfather passed on before I was born, and nobody in the family appears to have any more detailed information. The only other “factoid†I can provide is that both my great grandfather and my grandfather were (like all their offsprings, myself included) very big men; generally over 190 cm tall and broad shouldered.  I am sure you must be extremely busy with these kind of queries, and am very mindful that this is not much information to go on. The lack of concrete information on my family history has been somewhat of a source of frustration for me as well; unfortunately however, this is all there appears to be. I really would be most grateful for any information you may be able to provide, no matter how general. Conversely, if there is another source better situated to help me, I would be most grateful if you could point me in that direction. FYI, I am currently living in Vienna, and, if possible, am hoping to pay a visit to Belarus this summer, if only to take a quick look at my grandfather’s old home town.
Yours sincerely,  Saul Takahashi

Rabbi Avraham Shmuel Kostzevsky and twenty other Myadel Jews are buried in four mass graves in the cemetery in old Myadel and their names are etched on the tombstone that was put into position in 1993. These Jews were tortured and murdered on the 30th of August, 1941 by the Germans and their local associates, may their name be erased. They were murdered near the bridge just outside the shtetl in the swamp area. Before they were murdered, they were forced to dig their own graves. After two weeks they were buried at the cemetery with the help of some Gentiles that had the grace to help and retrieve the bodies from the boggy mud.  Among those that brought the bodies for burial to the four mass graves in the cemetery were the late Yerachmiel Chadash (whose father was among the ones murdered) and Mr. Arie Geskin, may he live long! - Chaya Lupinsky

I translated a story about the war time in the area and I am pasting here a few lines;
...On June 22, 1941, Nazi Germany's attack on the Soviet Union took us by surprise. At the time, I was living in Myadel, a shtetl situated on the shore of the Narutz Lake, where I had moved the previous year after marrying a native girl. The next morning, I left the area with 9 other youths from Myadel in an attempt to escape the rapidly approaching Nazi Army. With great rapidity we walked all the way to the Kanhanina train station, and in the last moment managed to push our way into the very last train car. As it turned out, the train was to be the last Soviet train to leave the area for some years.The train was full of soldiers and officers of the Red Army, as well as some local civil servants for the USSR. There were also some prisoners of the Soviets who were taken from Vilejka's (aka Vileyka) jail. Also, some locals (mostly Communists and Jews) who wanted to flee the Nazi occupation had crowded the train. The young people who came with me from Myadel were Moshe Hadash/ Chodesh, Hirsch Hadash, Yitzhak Alperovicz, Yoshue Leib Yanovsky, Yitzhak Keller, Shimon Kotzer, Yosef Rubin, Zalman Kaplan, and Nahum Perelman from Dokshitz. We barely found a spot to stand as the train departed. The ride was very peaceful until we reached Karlovisziczina, where about a dozen Luftwaffe Foch-Wulfes appeared. There were no Soviet forces in the area to repel them, so they rained their gifts down freely upon us. One of their huge bombs exploded right by the train and derailed the last three cars of the train, including the one we were on.To our great fortune, we were not physically hurt, but we were very anxious since we could not continue on our journey. When we got out of our car we realized that the rest of the train was long gone. After a moment to gather ourselves, we decided to walk to Dokshitz, a place where we thought we would have easier access to cross the border of Poland and the Soviet Union (the pre-partition border from 1939).Dokshitz was situated on the outskirts of the border. After arriving at Dokshitz, we found hundreds and I might not be exaggerating if I said thousands of refugees by the side of the road. Some came by horse and buggy, some by foot. They were running back and forth, looking for a place to cross to the other side and save themselves from the disaster to come. However, Soviet guards stood with weapons ready at every crossing point. They demanded that everyone go back, saying that we were all causing unnecessary panic, and that we must return to our proper places.We had no choice but to return to our homes, but first I decided to visit Dolhinov (aka Dolginovo), the place where I was born and raised. My mother and my married sister with her children lived there, and I wanted to help them. As it turned out, although I was able to help out many and save their lives from the hands of murderers, I was unable to save my mother, my sister, or her children. My sister on the other hand, saved my life from a certain torturous death at the hands of the Gestapo, as I will tell you later. Back to my visit to Dolhinov. Shortly after I arrived, on Saturday the 28th of June 1941, the first German scouts entered the town. They didn't hurt anyone at first, they just shot at a few farmers. We then decided that it was time to go back to Myadel, where our wives and children were.Four young people from Dolhinov walked with me to Myadel. On the way we didn't see any Germans. We avoided the main roads, sticking to more out-of-the-way routes and we safely arrived at the village Nyavia, a few kilometers from Myadel. Here we had to cross the river using a boat since German planes had demolished the bridge. We saw a few farmers taking out the bridge debris from the river. After begging, pleading and bribing, we were able to convince one of them to take us with his boat across the river for a large amount of money.At home, my wife and father-in-law received me with great delight. "The husband and son-in-law has returned," they said. However, after a few moments of discussion of the situation of the Jews, I realized, "What did I really achieve? Why did I leave and then come back?"Forthwith I was told that there was already carnage in town, and blood was flowing like a river here. As soon as the German troops arrived, they appointed some local collaborators to take charge of the police department. Most of the youths in the police force were local Polish people, amongst them about 20 hooligans and thugs who were full of animosity toward the Soviets, and showed even greater repugnance towards the Jews. They declared, "All the Jews were Communists." That statement launched the first event in a series of tragedies and tortures that I would experience. Immediately I realized that we must organize young people to fight the enemy, though the road to achieving that goal was very long and there were many twists and turns on the way to accomplishing that lofty idea.At the head of the local police in Myadel, there were two corrupt, cruel and bloodthirsty goons. The head of the police was Baginisky, and Koprevicz was his assistant. As soon as the Nazis appointed them to the job, together with the gendarme of Vilejka they started torturing the Jewish community, which was totally without defense and had never committed any crime. In some ways, the local assistants were many times crueler than their German bosses. The First Massacre and Its VictimsOne Sunday, in the first weeks of the occupation, two bodies of prisoners from the Vileyka jail were brought to Myadel. When the Soviets started retreating from Vileyka, they killed a few political prisoners that they thought were too dangerous to be taken to the Soviet Union. Those executions of those sentenced to death were done near the village Ravoni, which was in the vicinity of the jail. When later the bodies were found, one of the thugs who found them was from Myadel, and he recognized two of the bodies as of natives of Myadel.The locals said, "Who is guilty? The Jews. They were the cause of these people's imprisonment, and now they were the cause of their death." They soon organized a majestic burial ceremony that paid great homage to the deceased in which they made fiery speeches laden with malevolence called for retribution on the Jews. They also invited some Germans from the engineering troops that were rebuilding the local infrastructure to take part in the ceremony. The Germans who were responsible for the improvement of the infrastructure decided to exploit the Jews to do the hard labor as slaves. They started kidnapping Jews and forced them to build the roads. One day for no clear reason they gathered 22 young Jews from Myadel and ordered them to walk. At the head of the procession they put the Rabbi and kosher slaughterer (shochet). Soon after, they started tormenting them and moments later they begun torturing them. The tortures were executed methodically and brutally. They used clubs and attack dogs that tore at their victims' limbs and flesh. I saw everything with my own eyes, since in all the panic around I was able to escape and hide in a house not far from this tragic event. I saw an agitated German officer holding a ferocious dog ordering it to attack the rabbi, who was already too weak to stand on his feet. The dog pushed him on the ground and started eating his flesh, which was bleeding profusely. The killers ordered the other victims to put the rabbi's body, which was still twitching, on a wheelbarrow and to take him outside of the town. Others were also tortured mercilessly, and at the end, they ordered the few survivors who were still able to walk to take shovels and to start marching. Soon after, they were told to dig holes. When they had finished digging, they were shot on the spot and buried in the holes that they had just dug. In outrage, I escaped from my hiding place and took with me Berl Chodesh, my father-in-law, who was also hiding out there. ....
You should read the rest of the story if you want to know more details about the amazing story of survival of many families who escaped from the ghetto of Myadel.

Thank you so much for your prompt replies, and for already doing so much work on this. I really am very grateful.
 
I hadn't even thought of American population data -- which is why I neglected to mention that my great grandfather apparently took the name Philip after coming to the United States. I see there are a couple of Philip Chodoses in the data you've dug up, both of whom lived in Manhattan. This would definitely make sense, as my grandfather's family lived in NY after immigrating to the United States. As nobody in my family remembers my great grandfather's approximate year of birth, it's impossible to say whether either one of the two Philips could be him; conceivably either one.
 
The Israel you've found unfortunately isn't my grandfather; he did live in NY for many years after immigrating to the United States, but moved to LA after becoming a rabbi and passed on there. My father and all his brothers were very small when the family moved west, so they wouldn't remember their old addresses or the like.
 
Still, you have given me some very concrete leads, which I will do my best to follow up. As I am sure you know, with this kind of quest, any sort of information is very valuable; each piece fits in, somehow.
 
Best wishes,    Saul
 
  It is most likely;
Chodos, Philip Manhattan, New York, NY 60 BirthYear(1920, '40');1879 came from Russia in 1907 White he had a son Israel.
His wife was Anna and she had another first name  (Kellie or Nellie?)
she was also 40 years old in 1920 and came from Russia in 1910 with son Israel who was born c 1905 (was 14 in 1905) also a daughter who was 12 and her name start with an E and hard to read- almost looks like my name (Eilat)
son Israel would be right for; CHODOS, ISRAEL died; 27 Dec 1963 LOS ANGELES MALE born; 11 Nov 1905 POLAND Mother's Maiden Name ABRAMSON
There was another son; Abraham who was born in New York and was age 2
they rented a home and owned a butcher store
This is definitely the family; just as you sent your e mail I actually got the same data (with just a little bit more detail on the siblings and the address in NY) from another researcher, and checked it over the phone with my grandmother (who is still alive).
 
According to that information, the family came from the community of Breslaw Kovno. I'm not sure where this is; there is a Braslav in Belarus, so that is probably my best bet, but it is quite far from the Myadel region, where I had always understood my grandfather to be from. Perhaps I am missing something fundamental; would you happen to know anything about this particular place in Belarus?
 
Incidentally, thanks very much for the newspaper article; indeed, this is my grandfather. He helped set up the Sinai synagogue in West LA.
 
Best wishes,     Saul

 I'm trying to find connections to my CHODOSH / CHODASCH family from Myadel
and Postavy.

Four brothers, Abraham, Louis, Saul and Samuel, emigrated and settled in
Carteret, NJ. Their sister Sarah (Sora) married Harry GOZ and lived in Ohio
and then Carteret,NJ. Their sister Sophie married Samuel WEXLER and also
settled in Carteret, NJ.

Somewhere between 1925 and 1930 they brought their father Itzhak (born about
1854) to NJ from Kurenitz, where he was then living.

Family lore has it that there were at least 6 other children, some of whom
came to the States and settled in other locations. Other relatives lived in
Ponevezh.

If any of these names or locations sound familiar, I look forward to hearing
from you.
