Russo-Jewish family. We originated, according to a tradition current in the family, with Mordecai Jaffe, author of the "Lebushim." The immediate ancestor was Joseph of Turetz (d. 1778), Turetz being a town near Nowogrudok, in the province of Minsk. The first member of the family to assume the name "Harkavy" was Gershon of Nowogrudok (d. 1824), son of Joseph of Turetz. I didn't know any of those old fuckers, but I am the psycho chosen person who likes to break dance on ice in spandex...I expect to be disowned soon.
