Re: R' Israel EYBESCHUETZ (? - 1811) #rabbinic

Tom Brøndsted <tom@...>
 

For a couple of years ago I had contact with a EYBESCHUETZ-researcher
looking for a connection between the famous Rabbi Jonathan Eybeschütz
of Hamburg and the Danish winedealer Aron EIBESCHÜTZ. As far as I
remember he concluded that both come >from the same place in Mähren
(Germany). Aron _may_ be a nephew of Jonathan. The tombstone of Aron
EIBESCHÜTZ in Copenhagen (Møllegade) is well preserved but there are
no indication of who his parents were.

According to the researcher mentioned above, Aron Eibeschütz' wife
Sara (Serle) Levi (ca. 1740-1820) is likely to be the daughter of
Moses Marcus Levy of Fredericia - and he _may_ be a son of Rabbi
Moses Ber ROTHENBURG of Hamburg, the predecessor of Jonathan
Eybeschütz.

Have a look at
http://www.brondsted.dk/~tom/genealogi/rothenbg.htm
- note [2] at the bottom.

Personally, I am sceptical as regards this genealogy.

Seeking: Willie PRIMHAK (England)and Tillie COHEN #general

Jane Peppler <jpeppler@...>
 

Hello,

In seeking living descendants of Israel Ber (Berel) Finklestein Cohen
and wife Tatzy, I am tracking a Willie PRIMHAK who married Tillie Cohen
and ran a pub in North London. They would have been born around the
beginning of this century. Truly hoping to uncover some of their
descendants.

Thanks,

Naming after the Living #general

first wife, Sarah, and

named Sarah, too.

Is this a rotten thing to do ?"

Actually, no. It's very likely that Sarah 2 was named after a different,
albeit deceased Sarah.

I had a similar problem, naming my children after their paternal relatives
when I had siblings with the same name. There is no problem with this, but I
asked my siblings permission, explaining the situation, to be polite. They
were thrilled.

Think of it this way...I have 12 children, and there are only so many family
names to use. The patriarchal and matriarchal names are very common for
Jews. If one wants to follow the tradition of naming after the deceased,
they limit the number of available names.

Detroit Cemetery Look-ups #general

Vivian308@...
 

Is there anyone in Detroit who can get to Workman's Circle
and Machpelah cemeteries and either take photos,
or read the Hebrew inscriptions for me?
I have the Section, Lot, and Grave numbers.
The cemetery caretaker was helpful when I first
contacted her in September, and told me that she
would send photos, but I have never received them,
and I haven't been able to reach her since then.

Please contact me privately and I will
give you the information.

Thank you very much for your help.
