I don't know who started this item, but there were Amzalak's in
Jerusalem and Jaffa. One Amzalak was British consul in Jerusalem. They
were also involved in the construction of the first railway in
Palestine.

There were (and still are) Amzalak's in Portugal. The late Prof. Moses
bensabat Amzalak was president of the Lisbon Jewish community for many
years. If interested I have some information about this branch, which,
by the way is related to the Amzalak's of Jerusalem. To the same branch
belongs Jack Amir, once mayor of Beer-Sheva.
