My uncle told me many years ago the someone had told him when he was
a child that he/we are descendant >from Rav Nachman of Breslev's
sister. We do have a tree that goes back to the Mahara"l down through
R' Naftali KATZ ("Smichat Chachamim"). but in the various trees that
we are connected to-not as direct descendants-there are Pinchas of
Koretz and the admo"r of Lechowitz , Reb Aharon and Pearl. (my
4xgrandfather's brother married their daughter).
Interestingly but not obviously, as it happened, my mother's first
cousin, Reb Yacov Meir SCHECHTER is one of the senior Rabbis of
Breslev today. Though his nephews are "into" Jewish geneaology and
they are also Breslever chassidim, they never mentioned any familial
connection to Rav Nachman or his sister. It seems that my uncle's
comment to me was the only hint that we may be descendant directly
from Nachman's sister.Does anyone have any knowledge of Rav Nachman's sister's descendants.
I do understand that we may be distant cousins going back to the
