Biography

Note (fam)Adele and Willie aided the cause of Israeli independence. Sherman family lore has it that Jack Sherman and his son Alvin had contributed "money and other items" to support the establishment of the State of Israel. The recipient of these contributions was said to be "a woman in Yonkers." The "other items" were arms.

The "woman in Yonkers" was Adele Grantz. She and her husband Willie received contributions from other Zionist members of the family as well as from Jack and Alvin Sherman. As a businessman, William Grantz had financial facilities which enabled him to freely direct monies. Open contributions were made to Kibbutz Negba for, among other things, an ambulance, which the Grantzes delivered themselves. Funds were also quietly sent to an associate of Menachem Begin, the head of the Irgun. The Irgun was more violent and radical than Haganah, which was the larger Jewish Zionist group in Palestine. The Shermans' contributions to Irgun were almost certainly used for armaments.

Menachem Begin became the sixth Prime Minister of Israel1,2

NameAdele Glotzer was also known as Odel Glocer.
Birth15 October 1899Adele Glotzer was born on 15 October 1899 in Pinsk, Belarus.3
Immigration15 July 1920She arrived at Ellis Island in New York on 15 July 1920. She and her sisters — Faigl, Raisel and Paula — had sailed from Antwerp on July 5 aboard the S.S. Lapland. They arrived after a ten-day passage.4
Graduation1922She graduated in 1922.
Marriage9 July 1924William Grantz and she were married on 9 July 1924 at the Cooper apartment in Harlem.5,6
Name-MarriedHer married name was Adele Grantz.5
Residence (fam)8 April 1930William Grantz and she lived at 2576 Bronx Park East in the Bronx on 8 April 1930. By the following October they were at 95 East Mosholu Parkway, also in the Bronx.7
Residence (fam)from 1931 to 1938William Grantz and she lived at 95 East Mosholu Parkway in the Bronx from 1931 to 1938.8
Naturalization7 March 1939She was naturalized on 7 March 1939 in New York.8
Residence (fam)1942William and Adele lived at 3150 Rochambeau Avenue in 1942. This address was cited by Lozer Kantor on his draft card. During World War II the Grantzes were found on Rochambeau Avenue and, until 1944, at 3400 Wayne Avenue in the apartment to which the Jacobses moved in August, 1944.9
Residence (fam)between 1942 and 1944Sometime between 1942 and 1944 the Grantzes moved into the Wayne Avenue apartment to which my parents, my sister and I moved in August, 1944.10
Residence (fam)August 1944William Grantz and she lived at 73 Highland Avenue in Yonkers in August 1944.10
Psgr List (fam)22 May 1950William Grantz and she arrived back in New York after a European trip on 22 May 1950 aboard R.M.S. Queen Mary; they later visited Poland again, returning aboard the Queen Elizabeth. They also took later trips to Israel whose dates I do not have.11
Psgr List (fam)1 May 1956Her name was found on a passenger list on 1 May 1956.12
NoteAdele was probably the closest of my mother's siblings. We certainly saw her more often than any of the others. She had learned to ice skate as a girl in Pinsk. I went ice skating with her in the Bronx, probably when I was in junior high school, and was surprised at her grace. I guess you don't forget how to do it.10
Death28 December 1989She died on 28 December 1989 at age 90 in Santa Monica, California.13

Biography

Birth1904Moshe Glotzer was born in Pinsk, probably in 1901.1
Death1941He died in 1941, hanged by the Germans: "On information supplied by his Christian neighbor, furs were found in a pit in the yard of Moshe Glotser (one of the sons of Chonya the Bath Man). As punishment he and his wife were hanged in the market place. The same fate befell a woman and her two daughters when fur was found in their home. They were forced to put the rope around one another's necks. For three days their dead bodies hung in the central square, the Third of May Square. The workmen were obliged to pass through this square on their way to work, and the spectacle reminded them of their plight."2

Burialabout 22 December 1996She was buried about 22 December 1996 at Cedar Park Cemetery in Emerson.10,11
BiographyHer son Harold wrote this memoir of his mother:

"Fannie Glotzer was the third child of the nine surviving children of Chonya Glotzer. She had a twin brother who died in infancy. She was the daughter of Chonya Glotzer and Hannah Eisenberg (Chonya’s first wife). Chinke, Yitzhak, and Rose were also children of Chonya and Hannah. The other five children (Adele, Maishe, Yankl, Ben, and Paula) were children of Chonya and Chinke Kuperman (Chonya’s second wife). It should be noted that Chinke Kuperman was the niece of Hannah Eisenberg.
Fannie was very proud of the fact that she was one of the few at that time in Pinsk who graduated from Gymnasium(High School). She was particularly proud of her mastery of German grammar. She also was quite literate in the Russian language and classics by Dostoievsky, Turgenev, Tolstoy and others.
Fannie’s father, Chonya, operated a barge business running freight up and down the Pripet river. Her four brothers were all boatmen and all the siblings were excellent swimmers which Fannie was very proud of.
Fannie liked animals, but not as a house pet. When her son, Harold, asked her if he could have a pet dog, her answer was “if you bring a dog into this house, I’ll throw you out together with the dog.”
Fannie was an avid walker. She regularly walked from her apartment on East Broadway in Manhattan to her sister Chinke’s apartment on East 35th Street - a distance of approximately 5 miles. When she visited her son, Harold, in El Paso, Texas, she went climbing in the Franklin Mountains at the age of 75.
In her retirement years, She shared a cooperative apartment on the 15th floor of 208 East Broadway on the lower east side of Manhattan with her sister Rose. Across the street was the Jewish Educational Alliance which offered many activities for senior citizens to partake of. There was a fabulous view from her apartment windows of some of the East River bridges in one direction and the City Hall area in the other direction. She also had a good view of the World Trade Center (which was demolished in a terrorist attack on September 11, 2001).
The years at the end of World War I and thereafter were extremely difficult times for the family in Pinsk (1917 - 1920). Eastern Europe was in chaos following the Russian revolution (1917). The family was at the mercy of Russian thugs but were protected for a while by German troops. Their experiences were certainly the prime reason for migrating to America, which fortunately did not have immigration quotas at that time. Fannie arrived in New York from Antwerp on July 15, 1920 on the ship “Lapland” which was part of the Red Star Line. Upon arrival, Fannie learned the millinery trade. This was accomplished by persistent on-the-job training in various shops until she built up a marketable proficiency. During World War II, Fannie did piece work sewing uniforms.
Fannie passed away at the age of 101. Unfortunately, the last ten years of her life were spent in the Sun Manor Nursing Home in Roslyn Heights, New York where she suffered from dementia. She is buried alongside of her husband Morris in Cedar Park Cemetery, Oradell, New Jersey in Block 16, Section J, Line 12, Graves 25 and 26.
Fannie was very devoted to her family. In particular she had an exceptionally close relationship with her older sister, Chinke. Several times a day they would pour out their heart’s feelings to each other."12

NoteUncle Israel was active in a variety of social and political organizations – the Workmen’s Circle and several other Zionist and socialist causes. He was one of those people who are widely respected for their kindness as well as their intelligence and commitment to the good of the community.
NoteThe book A Thousand Years of Pinsk (1941) contains an interesting biographical sketch of Uncle Israel:

Born in 1884 in Pinsk. His father, Ephraim Kuperman came from Berlin (a Berlinchek). Ephraim was an exporter of articles to the large Russian trade centers, and quickly worked himself up. Because of the pogroms in Kiev, he lost his fortune and became a worker in the Basewitch family brewery in Pinsk. His wife, Rochel, who was a relative of Basewitch worked there as a cashier, bookkeeper.

Israel Cooper received a traditional Jewish education. He studied with the best rabbi teachers in Pinsk, showing a special ability in learning and understanding the Tanach, the five books of the bible.

The financial situation of his parents didn't permit him to remain a student for too long, and at the age of 13, they decided that he should study a trade. He himself chose to become a mechanic, which was a skill that he had an inclination for. In his free time he continued studying on his own, learned physics and the Hebrew language.

At the same time he felt himself drawn to political-social welfare activities, and joined the Poale Zionists - the Zionist labor movement. Later he is drawn to the SS movement, and becomes one the most active members of that group in Pinsk. The SS "Self-Protection" movement was started in Pinsk. Israel Cooper was a very valuable member of these revolutionary organizations, since he used his skill to supply weapons, that he worked on by himself in the factory.

In 1905 he emigrated to America. He worked for a while as a mechanic and was active in his trade union. He became a member of the Territorialist party which was an outgrowth of the SS movement.

In 1912 he moved to Chicago. In 1913 he married Elizabeth Pomerantz, the daughter of the well known Pinsk advocat (lawyer) Isaac Pomerantz. In Chicago Israel Cooper became active in the Yiddish school movement that was just getting started. He became a member of the "Moishe Hess Club" whose participants were the most important leaders of the Jewish National Radical intelligentsia.

In 1916 he returned to New York and opened a watch distribution business which he continues to this day. However, he continues his organizational activities in the ranks of Pinsker Branch 210 of the Workmen's Circle. He is highly respected there by the members for his sincere idealism. He participates in all the projects of the branch, but dedicates himself mostly to activities in support of the land of Israel.

He is one of the most active workers in initiating the work of publishing
A Thousand Years of Pinsk.

His wife, Elizabeth Cooper, is also an active worker for social projects. She is involved with the Workmen's Circle Jewish Schools and with other important Jewish organizations.

The Coopers have three children, two daughters and a son. The older daughter, Anita, is a bacteriologist, the second daughter, Theresa, graduated from City College. She also attended the Workmen's Circle Jewish high school.. Their son, Daniel, is pursuing his college education.17
Death28 July 1976He died on 28 July 1976 at age 93 in Livingston, New Jersey.1,18
