R’ Joseph Zeev MAMJOFFE was the last Rabbi of Mazeikiai until he was
murdered in August 1941 with all the Jewish community of Mazeikiai.
I have read that the meaning of the surname MAMJOFFE is M”M Joffe. M’M means
“Mimishpachat Mordechai “ – >from Mordechai’s family, meaning >from Rabbi
Mordechai Jaffe, author of “Baal Halevush”.
Can someone confirm it or is there another explanation.
Thanks for your answers.
