My ancestors lived in Wallerstein and then Kleinerdlingen.
In particular, two of them were the Landrabbiner of the area (the last I
believe). They were Mordecai Michael KOHN and his father-in-law, David
Weiskopf. Their graves are still standing in the cemetery there.
Does anyone else have any connection with these towns?
==Rabbi YomTov Lippman haLevi Heller, author of Tosfot YomTov, the foremost
commentary on the Mishna, was born in Wallerstein in 1579; his grandfather was
Moshe Wallerstein. Later, there was a series of rabbis in Schnaittach,
Franconia, named Wallerstein.
