Notes:

There is some relationship between the Kaminsky, Sivitz, Plotkin, Block, Goldberg=Plotnick families. But what?

Here are notes on the famous Pittsburgh rabbi:
SIVITZ, MOSHE (1855-1936), U.S. rabbi. Born in Zhitovian in the Kovno District of Lithuania, he went to study at Rabbi Isaac Horowitz's Yeshiva before returning to Zhitovian and studying with Rabbi Solomon Horowitz, after which he studied in Telz. He was ordained by Rabbi Eliezer Gordon of Telz and by Rabbi Isaac Elhanan Spektor. He continued his studies in Kovno and became a rabbi at about the age of 30, in Pikelen, Lithuania. He immigrated to the United States a year later and then accepted an offer to become rabbi of the Russian Shul in Baltimore. Within two years he moved to Pittsburgh to serve as rabbi of Bnai Israel and later of Kahal Yereim. He became a major figure in Pittsburgh Jewry, working with the larger community to build a community Jewish hospital, Montefiore. He opened the Crawford Street Talmud Torah, a school that was available to all members of the community.

His attitude toward America was negative. He was a staunch opponent of Reform Judaism, which had but recently proclaimed its Pittsburgh Platform. He regarded the focus on money and success prevalent in the United States as compromising the integrity of Judaism, as he felt that spirituality could flourish amidst poverty and found material success threatening. He was against preaching in English and continued to sermonize in Yiddish.

One of the speakers at the funeral of Rabbi Jacob Joseph, he admonished the crowd for their mistreatment of the chief rabbi. He struggled for a living, as did many Orthodox rabbis of his generation, when rabbis were paid less than cantors, and sought to maintain economic independence in order to limit the power of his congregants, whom he did not regard as being of the stature in learning and piety of the European laymen he had left behind. He felt that the economic condition of the American rabbi - essentially a hired employee of his congregants - compromised his authority.

Kimmy Kaplan, who wrote on his preaching, stressed that Sivitz regarded leaving Eastern Europe as exchanging spiritual values for corporeality. The goldene medina was a land of spiritual dryness; a land of ignorance and impiety. In the United States the values of the country were the main problem for Judaism. Thus, he was firmly in the camp of the rejectionist Orthodox, who refused to embrace the American vision. He helped form and was a vice president of *Agudat Harabbonim.

He wrote a number of books: ?ikrei Da'at (2 volumes, 1898 and 1902), sermons based on the weekly Torah portion; Sefer Beit Paga (1904); Peri Yehezkel (1908); and Matteh Aharon (1914), material for sermons. He also authored a commentary on the Jerusalem Talmud entitled Masbiah al Yerushalmi (2 volumes, 1913, 1918) as well as ?ema? ha-Sadeh (1935). He also contributed to Judah Eisenstein's O?ar Yisrael (1907-1913).

Rosalind Biskind (nee Ackerman) of Haverford, Pa., died June 1, 2014. Wife of the late Saul S. Biskind; mother of Daniel (Sandra) Biskind, Eve (Kenneth) Klothen and Edward (Janine) Biskind; also survived by eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
Born in London, England during World War I, she met her American husband during World War II, when he heard there was a pretty Jewish girl working in the American Red Cross office on the base. After their whirlwind courtship and marriage, she was warmly welcomed as the first Cleveland area war bride. Her husband, the late Saul S. Biskind attributed much of his business success to her unwavering support. Together, they lived the American dream. Known to her many friends as Roz, she presided over a happy, bustling household including her widowed mother.
She was active as a community volunteer, but her family, along with her Jewish faith, was the center of her life, and she was, up until the end, the center of the family. She took great delight in her children's marriages, children, and was thrilled to have three great-grandsons.
Only within the past few years did her traveling end, which usually included visits to her far-flung family and friends. She always looked for the local synagogues, especially in foreign countries. During the last 15 years, after she moved to the Philadelphia area to be close to her daughter, she enjoyed making new friends in her new community.
Just one example of the devotion she inspired was that last summer, a California based granddaughter and fiance chose to marry in the Philadelphia area, on her grandmother's birthday no less, so that Gramma Roz would be there.
Graveside services were held on June 5, 2014 at Lakeview Cemetery, Cleveland, Ohio. In lieu of flowers, contributions in her memory may be made to MAZON (mazon.org) or Technion Israel Institute of Technology.
