Dear Genners,
Perhaps somepne can explain a mystery I am having. I have a phote album that
was created by my Grandfather. In it there is a picture of one of my
ggg-grandfather. His name was Emanuel PHILIPS 1796-1878 Rheinberg.

Under this caption it says Rabbi MENDELE. Supposedly he may have been a Rabbi.
Any ideas? Thanks
