Several jewish publications list a yahrzeit for a Rav Shabsi Sheftel
Weill as a rabbi in Simany, Hungary
I just met a young man who told me he is a great great grandson of Rav
Sheftel Weiss who was a renowned rabbi in Simani, Hungary.
Can anyone clarify for me whether in fact there was ever a Rabbi Shabsi
Sheftel Weill in Simani, Hungary? I am thinking that this was a typo
and should have been Weiss.
