Rav Shabsi Sheftel Weill or Weiss #rabbinic

Bernard Weill
 

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.

Thank you

leaders, who will offer first-hand insights regarding the imperative
(and challenges) of cleaning-up cemeteries in accordance with Jewish
law. They will address how local Polish communities view Jewish
cemeteries in their towns, the need to preserve Jewish memory, and

record is viewed, if details can be cross-matched with other records within
their unique database that they believe to be the same person, additional
records with the highest probably matches will appear at the top of the
page. These can then be "clicked" on to view each individual record and you
can then scroll through each of them using the arrows on the page, or close
to revert back to the original record. They have 22 million Commonwealth
military service records on their website.

One can place a name in the search engine and receive a list of records that
they have available-this is free. However, if you want to see the record
that requires a paid membership.

Forces War Records has launched a new update to their records page. When a
record is viewed, if details can be cross-matched with other records within
their unique database that they believe to be the same person, additional
records with the highest probably matches will appear at the top of the
page. These can then be "clicked" on to view each individual record and you
can then scroll through each of them using the arrows on the page, or close
to revert back to the original record. They have 22 million Commonwealth
military service records on their website.

One can place a name in the search engine and receive a list of records that
