Notes for Isaac Rosenberg:
My zaidy was a character.He was very handsome as a young man, red hair and blue blue eyes.He was a lady's man.He went to Canada before WWI broke out to find a job and a house for his family waiting in Poland.He didn't get back to Poland until after the war, and as soon as he returned his wife Devorah died of TB.She was only 29 years old. He married her best friend Esther Bernstein and she used Devorah's ticket to come to Canada with him, my mom and uncle.Several other members of the family immigrated at the same time.
We lived upstairs from them.My grandpa thought I was wonderful, when I refused to kiss him because his moustache tickled me, he shaved it off, after having it for years.He would do anything for me.He pretended that he didn't know how to read English, but I caught him on several occasions.I caught him cheating on keeping kosher.He would just smile and make up some silly story about the milkadika and fleishadika food that could be eaten if the dishes didn't touch.
He had a cottage in Oshawa, and I visited there when I was 16 for the entire summer.Then when I was 21 I visited them again, that was the last time I was in Toronto.
He had a stroke, mom went to Toronto to see him, he was 74 years old, and not long after she returned home he died.This was in 1964, he did get to meet my boys.
I think of him, those twinkling blue eyes, making up some cockamayme story and knowing I could see right through them.
