JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Yitzhak Leib or Yitzhak Yehuda? #general

I think they are the same person. Though Leib is a name that is
usually paired with Aryeh, Leib is yiddish for lion. Jacob, in blessing
his sons, compares Yehudah to a lion. (Genesis 49:9).
I think one is the Yiddish version, the other the Hebrew version.
