Akiba EGER birthday #austria-czech
Betreff: Akiba EGER birthday
The Austrian Jewish Museum in Eisenstadt made a new hot announcement!
Sensational discovery! The Torah wimpel for the famous Rabbi Akiba Eger - we
can ultimately prove that he was born on 1 Cheshvan 522 = 29 October 1761
(and NOT as most sources claim on 8 November).
His brother Samuel was not born in 1755, but - as we reed in the Pinkas MILA
(circumcision register, Mohel book) - in 1762!
