Re: Are most WEILLs leviyim? #rabbinic

The Korban Netanel was not a levi. In Dr. Leopold Loewenstein's book about
Rabbi Nathanael Weil >from 1898 there is nothing written about a possible
levite ancestry. Since I was very involved with the Korban Netanel I am
sure I would know about this.

A quick glance at the title pages of his books online,
<http://www.hebrewbooks.org/30659>;,
and at his gravestone
<https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Die_Vorderseite_des_Grabsteines_auf_de
m_Grab_Rabbi_Nathanael_Weil,_2013.JPG>,
show no mention of his being a levite. (You might be mistaking "zt'l",
"zikhron tzadik livrakhah", for indicating a levite?)
