Is Reissen a town in Germany, or are you referring to a town in Lithuania? 

I tried Jewishgen's town finder, and couldn't locate the name in either country.

for what it's worth - Steinberg is German for 'Stone Mountain' and in German is pronounced 'Shteinberg'. In Yiddish, Stone Mountain is Shteynbarg, but of course written in Hebrew letters. The two names are similar because Yiddish is a Germanic language, with Slavic and Hebrew influences.
