Jewish Family Names explains the origin of the name Abileah 


Society for Jewish Folk Music (From Encyclopedia Judaica at Home, article on Society for Jewish Folk Music (vol 15 p 57)) : Soc. for J. Folk Music was founded in St. Petersburg in November 1908 by a group of Jewish students at the conservatory,  among them A. Niezwicski (Abileah).  It was originally intended to be a Society for Jewish Music, but the commanding general of the district refused to license it under this title because he doubted Jewish music existed. He conceded that there may be Jewish folk music.  The word Folk was therefore inserted in the name.More on the Jewish Folk Music Society can be found at these Internet sites: Musica Judaica
