The Zaklad Family of Tzfat

About Us

Chayim in his Office with Music Keyboard and him on Monitor Our last name was "Saklad" in the United States, but relatives outside the U.S., in France and Israel, use "Z" rather than "S". Consequently: Zaklad.

From this page, you can access our resumés, a map and directions to our home, an "Ethical Will" and our family tree.

Chayim (Howard) in His Tiny Home Office

I was born in New York City, and I grew up in Danbury, Connecticut (CT), and in the Philadelphia and Boston areas. Following college at Boston University, I spent 4 years in the Hartford, CT area, and, starting in 1982, nearly 14 years in Fairbanks, Alaska. I married Simcha Layah in 1994, and in 1996, we made Aliyah to Tzfat, Eretz Yisrael.

Simcha Layah was born in Worcester, Massachusetts, and grew up in the Boston area and New Hampshire. She went to college in upstate New York (NY), and was living in Saratoga Springs, NY, near Albany, when we met.

(Do this in Windows 9x or later as follows: right click on a blank area of your desktop, select Properties, click on the Settings tab, and if necessary, click Advanced and set the font size to Large Fonts and click on each OK button.  In order to be able to do this, you must not have the Screen area set at 640x480.  It must be 800x600 or higher.)

Zaklad/Saklad Family Tree

Dr. Elihu Saklad, of 266 Slater Avenue, Providence, RI 02906, United States, prepared a family tree for the Zaklad/Saklad family in 1977. He revised it in 1983, and has hand-written in some updates since then. The tree starts with Eliahu Saklad, who was born in 1815. I am descended from one of his 3 sons, Avraham Itzchok Saklad (1840-5/31/1912), who brought his family to the United States around 1890. He is buried near the rear of Agudas Achim Cemetery, Montvale, Massachusetts. I am descended from one of Avraham Itzchok's 7 children, Louis, and one of Louis's 9 children, was my grandfather David.
