Abe Mirvish

Consisting of a large number of family photographs, the Abe Mirvish collection depicts various aspects of Jewish life, such as religious ceremonies (bat mitzvahs) and weddings, as well as every-day life of the Mirvish family. Also included are images of Rabbi Moses Chaim Mirvish while studying, as well as attending the opening ceremony of the Beit Hamedrash in Vredehoek around the 1930s. A small bonus included is a hand-drawn map of a shtetl in Plungian, Russia.
