I was told that my family came from a town/village called Rebchevich. Famiy name was Kahanowitz or at least that is how it was spelled on immigration paper.

KAHANOWITZ: looks ot be a Jewish name: kahan or kagan is derived from Hebrew kohen (priest); this woudl be a patornymic nick meaning the priest's son. One of Stalin's Jewish henchmen was Lazar Kaganovich.

The closest I could find were:
Rebisze Działy in Poland's Mazowsze region and Rabczyce in the Lwów (Lviv) region in what is now Ukraine. Dunno if either is what you're looking for.
