1. Carol:  Jews Amongst Southern Germans
From: Carol <sonlit@charter.net>
Re: Brit-Am Now no. 1201

Hello

reading with interest the heading, Lost Tribes Still in German?  The southern German peoples may still contain Jewish remnants as in America, hidden by name alterations created for the sake of preservation.  For instance, Nobbee or Nobbe, the latter is a German rendering of the name. There was a small community of Jews in NY under that name I found under name listings many years ago.  There is/was an actual Biblical city known as NOB.

Also, from a German genealogy expert I learned that sometimes indigents would work the farms of the established and in order to marry and/or gain an inheritance, changed THEIR names to the name of the one they worked for.

3. The Book of  Lamentations
Beginning sunset Saturday Night through Sunday (August 10, 2008) to sunset is the ninth of Av 5768.
On this day we mourn the Destruction of the Temple having in mind as well other exiles of Israelites that took place.
It is the practice to read the Book of Lamentations on this day.
Lamentations concerns primarily the experiences of Judah but also has relevance to the Ten Tribes.
The Midrash Rabah on Lamentations includes references of interest concerning the Ten Tribes.
We hope to begin a regular Brit-Am study of Lamentations parallel to our existing still ongoing Biblical Studies in Psalms, Kings, and Proverbs.
Here are the opening verses of the Book of Lamentations.
It is pertinent to our time.
Even though the State of Israel now exists and relatively speaking is prospering it is still alone among the nations. [This is apart from the reserved support of the USA and occasional acts of sympathy from other Israelite nations such as the UK , Canada, and Australia: incidentally all Joseph nations.] 
Nevertheless by reading the Book of Lamentations we can still see how basically the attitude of the heathen has not changed and we may realize how precarious everything is.

 [Lamentations 1:1] HOW DOTH THE CITY SIT SOLITARY, THAT WAS FULL OF PEOPLE! HOW IS SHE BECOME AS A WIDOW! SHE THAT WAS GREAT AMONG THE NATIONS, AND PRINCESS AMONG THE PROVINCES, HOW IS SHE BECOME TRIBUTARY!
[Lamentations 1:2] SHE
WEEPETH SORE IN THE NIGHT, AND HER TEARS ARE ON HER CHEEKS: AMONG ALL HER LOVERS SHE HATH NONE TO COMFORT HER: ALL HER FRIENDS HAVE DEALT TREACHEROUSLY WITH HER, THEY ARE BECOME HER ENEMIES.
[Lamentations 1:3] JUDAH IS GONE INTO CAPTIVITY BECAUSE OF AFFLICTION, AND BECAUSE OF GREAT SERVITUDE: SHE
DWELLETH AMONG THE HEATHEN, SHE FINDETH NO REST: ALL HER PERSECUTORS OVERTOOK HER BETWEEN THE STRAITS.
[Lamentations 1:4] THE WAYS OF ZION DO MOURN, BECAUSE NONE COME TO THE SOLEMN FEASTS: ALL HER GATES ARE DESOLATE: HER PRIESTS SIGH, HER VIRGINS ARE AFFLICTED, AND SHE IS IN BITTERNESS.
[Lamentations 1:5] HER ADVERSARIES ARE THE CHIEF, HER ENEMIES PROSPER; FOR THE LORD HATH AFFLICTED HER FOR THE MULTITUDE OF HER TRANSGRESSIONS: HER CHILDREN ARE GONE INTO CAPTIVITY BEFORE THE ENEMY.
[Lamentations 1:6] AND FROM THE DAUGHTER OF ZION ALL HER BEAUTY IS DEPARTED: HER PRINCES ARE BECOME LIKE HARTS THAT FIND NO PASTURE, AND THEY ARE GONE WITHOUT STRENGTH BEFORE THE PURSUER.
[Lamentations 1:7] JERUSALEM REMEMBERED IN THE DAYS OF HER AFFLICTION AND OF HER MISERIES ALL HER PLEASANT THINGS THAT SHE HAD IN THE DAYS OF OLD, WHEN HER PEOPLE FELL INTO THE HAND OF THE ENEMY, AND NONE DID HELP HER: THE ADVERSARIES SAW HER, AND DID MOCK AT HER SABBATHS.
