Re: MEDALIE family #rabbinic


Ida & Joseph Schwarcz
 

Dear Chaim,
The name Medalie struck a chord. Somewhere in the back of my brain there is
a vague memory of the name associated with a Haskala writer, perhaps. At the
time, many years ago, I remember thinking that it was an unusual Jewish
name.
Sincerely
Ida Selavan Schwarcz

Rabbi Hillel MEDALIE, rabbi in Antwerp and Leeds, was the husband of Miriam
Silver, daughter of Tillie Bloch, daughter of Getzel Bloch ( a descendant of
the Vilna Gaon).

Hillel Medalie was a son of Rabbi Shemarya Yehudah Leib Medalie of Moscow.

A brother of Hillel, Aharon Shlomo (1897-1943) was a son-in-law of Rabbi
Avraham Chaim Halevi Katzenellenbogen whose wife Perel was a daughter of
Rabbi Eliyahu Barukh Kamai, Rosh Yeshiva of Mir ( a descendant of Rabbi
Avraham Ragoler, brother of the Vilna Gaon).

I am seeking descendants of the Medalie family who have information about
the descendants of Avraham-Chaim and Perel Katzenellenbogen.
