I have been looking into my own family and neglected my husband's
side. Rabbi Avraham C. NAEH >from what my husband has told me, was the
Rav of the Bucharian Jews and an author of quite a few s'forim on the
halachik measurements in many areas. I was told that he traces his
roots to the daughters of one of the Tzemach Tzedek.
Anyone out there familiar with the family history? There are quite a
few cousins in Israel. I do know that I had read and was told that he
was a friend and worked with Rav Yosef Chayim Sonnenfeld. I would like
to know any stories or information having to do with him other than
the ones in the book "The Heavenly City."
I would also like to know why and when he used the last name
ASHCANASIE (probably not the correct spelling.)
A very distantly related person met us and told us that the family was
traced to either Portugal or Spain. How they did that I would love to
know and >from further up they could trace to the House of Dovid- thrue
the Tzemach Tzedek . Anyone ???
