Catching up on recent apppearances of the Machberes column and other
items of interest:
Supplementing the December 3 Report, the following items of interest
also appeared in the December 5 issue of the Jewish Press:
A news article elaborates on the ancestry of R. Chaim Yechiel Mayer
SHNEIBALG, Zidchover Rebbe in Bnei Brak, mentioned in the December
3, 2003 report. He was the son of R. Yeshaya SHNEILBALG
(1920-2002), son-in-law of R. Sholom EICHENSTEIN (1901-1987), son of
R. Usher Yeshaya EICHENSTEIN, son of R. Yeoschor Berish (1848-1924),
son of R. Alexander Sender Yom Tov (1805-1873), son of R.Yeoschor
Berish (d.1832), son of R. Yitzchok Isaac EICHENSTEIN (1740-1800).
The column, "Po-lin" mentions several members of the TEOMIM family:
Rabbi Ephraim TEOMIN and his son R. Yaacov TEOMIM (1833-1908), both
of whom served as Rabbi of Wielkie Oczy, R. Moshe TEOMIM of Delatyn,
and his son, R. Naftali Herz TEOMIM (1851-1943), Rabbi of Vilkutch,
who was succeeded by his son, R. Yona Teomim (1870-1943). This
column appears regularly and focuses on a different town in Poland.
I generally do not comment on it because it is available on line.
