THE LEW DOUBLE WEDDING
10 Nov 1922
was taken at
the wedding of brothers Shmuel and Josef Lew (pronounced
'Lev') to two sisters,
Gitel and Fruma Fridman in 1922.
Shmuel and Gitel immigrated to Palestine in 1933. Two of
their three children were born in Sejny. Josef and Fruma
remained in Sejny and perished in the Holocaust along with
their children (c.f). Nisan Lew and his wife and children
also perished. Rifka Borovicz and her husband Meir and the
little girl Chana also went to Palestine. Leizer Brzozek was
Sora Lew's brother and Chaim Rosen was her nephew. They did
not live in Sejny.
Moshe Leib Lew moved his family to Sejny sometime between
1889 and 1893. He was in the timber trade. His house was
on the eastern side of the market square.
