Baby Named “El Nil” for Egyptian Steamship

In late 1940, a baby boy was born to Mr. and Mrs. Shlomo Gerstein during a 68-day voyage from Alexandria, Egypt, to Jersey City, New Jersey (by way of the Suez Canal and the Cape of Good Hope). They were aboard the Egyptian steamship El Nil, “the Nile” in Arabic, so the baby was named Akiva El Nil Gerstein.
