I am looking for information on the Rabbi Jacob Joseph Halpern of Berdichev.
His descendants became the rabbis of Vaslui, Rumania. He claimed descent
from Jehiel Heilpern (1660-1746), the author of Sder Hadorot. However,there would have had to have been at least several, and probably more
like 5 generations between the two men.
I'd appreciate hearing privately about R. Jacob Joseph, or
from any other HALPERN of Berdichev.Thank you,
