Starkman quotes

"He was born on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, which is always two days, either in 22 September 1892 or 23 September.

More confusion followed. At one point, Itchik had to know his birthday. Bubba (Yiddish for "grandmother"), as he always called Esther, told him he was born on "New Year's" and the boy, thinking she meant the "American" New Year, wrote "January 1st." This somehow became corrupted into January 31st. The latter date was celebrated as his official birthday for the remainder of his life, making Itchik think he was seven and a half months older than he really was".
