JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Tosfot YOM TOV LIPPMAN (Heller), and Wallerstein (village) #general


The illustrious Rabbi YomTov Lippman Heller, author of Tosfot YomTov, 16th
century Prague, was born in Wallerstein (near Noerdlingen, on the
Bavaria/Shwabian border, to a line of rabbis named Wallerstein.

Does anyone have access to a genealogy of YomTov Lippman Heller? Can
anyone guide me?

Can anyone guide me on the influence of Prague Judaism on Bavaria in
general and Franconia (Franken) especially?

Thank you
