Shalom!
I am looking for a translation as to the firstname of Szapse. The origin is
from Austria and the Hebrew Name would be Yitzchak. Thank you
Mike Greenberg
Even though your ancestor's Hebrew name was Yitzchak, the name Szapse does
not correspond to Yitzhak (which is Itzik in Yiddish, Isaac in English
transliteration). Szapse sounds like a Yiddish abbreviation of the Hebrew
name"Shabbsai" (an Ashkenazic pronunciation of Shabbetai.). Perhaps your
ancestor had two names, Shabbetai Yitzchak or vice versa?
