Way back in my wife’s family tree is a hilariously eccentric relative named Naftali Herz Imber (Wikipedia). He’s credited with having written the words to the Israeli National Anthem, “Hatikvah”. Recently I hired local historian Paula Freedman to dig up some information on him and his intersection with Sarah’s synagogue, Temple Emanu-el.
I’m publishing all the newspaper articles source material here in the interest of contributing to future efforts to research Naftali Imber.
To hire Paula Freedman, professional historian, to research a relative of yours, please contact her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Having engaged her for this project, I promise you it was money well spent and extremely useful in the amount of source material she found for me.
