Moses Bloom was born Moses Tresczcanski in the town of Goniadz in Poland, in 1860. He immigrated to America in 1890, where he ran a delicatessen on the lower east side of New York City. He was also a Bal Korah (a bible reader) and a lay cantor, leading congregations in Poland and in the United states. This is from a recording made by Moses in a studio, just prior to his death in 1934.
My father (Carl Rothschild) made a number of audio recordings of me when I was young. In this one, I am around age 3, in 1965, and we are in the basement of our home in Englewood New Jersey.
Carl owned and ran a tennis club in New Jersey from the mid-1970s until his death in 1994. He had a number of friends who would spend time with him there, playing tennis and chatting. This is a recording of one of those sessions in 1986.
This is a recording of my Bar Mitzvah, in March of 1975.
