I would like to know if anyone has information on a Rabbi Ernest
WEILL, who was a "godol" in Colmar, France and passed away in 1947.
Did he leave over children? Thank you.
I have a copy of his Choul'hane Aroukh Abrege, which is basically a
halachic work, but is not merely a translation of Kitzur Shulchan
Arouch, as the title suggests, but includes much philosophy behind
the halacha as well. The copy I have was published in 1975 by
Fondation Sefer, 140 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore, Paris 8, and is
labeled the fourth edition. >from the forward it appears that he
was not only "grand-rabbin de Colmar", but also "grand rabbin du
Haut-Rhin". I don't see any information on his family in the book.
