Thanks to the assistance of several Genners, but especially Barbara Zimmer,
my distant relative Paul Wortmann, d. 15 May 1988 is now located at Mt Sinai
Cemetery (Jewish cemetery) Section L, in St Louis MO.

If anyone on the list is nearby and would care to take a digital photo, I'd

Woops, L. Reich is right and I fail to see why I wrote father-in-law

R' Yitzchak Landau of Krakow #rabbinic

LReich <lreich@...>
 

Isak Gath <ISAK@bm.technion.ac.il> inqured

"I am looking for info concerning ancestors and in particular
descendants of R' Yitzchak Landau, who was AB"D of Krakow, Poland,
during the years 1754-1768. Did he have a son named R' Yaakov ?
Was R' Yaakov LANDAU of Tarlow (1705-1777) his son?......"
My library tells me that:-

R' Yaakov LANDAU of Tarlow (1705-1777) was indeed a son of
R' Yitzchak Landau!

To go back a genereration or two, R' Yitzchak's father, R' Zvi Hirsh,
was known as R' Hersh Vitsch after his famous mother Vita.,
daughter of R' Zvi Charif, Rav of Apt.

The above R' Zvi was married to the daughter of a celebrated royal
(Jan Sobieski) doctor, known as R' Simcha Mayono, aka as Simcha Doktor.

Besides the above R' Yitzchok, R' Zvi had an older son, R' Yehuda,
who was the father of the famous Noda Beyehuda. There was some friction
(as related by R' Taakov Emden) between the two brothers when
R' Yitzchok became Rav of his home-town, Apt, a position which
R' Yehuda felt was rightfully his.

R' Yitzchak had a least five sons; Yaakov, Yosef, Chaim, Aryeh and
Asher and many daughters. His progeny (many listed in the works
cited below) include numerous Rabbonim.
(One daughter wed R' Moshe Halberstadt an ancestor (of mine -
Moshe's son Yehoshu Yehuda was the father of my gggf and)
the Admor R' Chaim of Zanz).

This last Yaakov, son ofYitzchak was married to Rachel Rivka
a daughter of the famous R' Yechezkel Katzenellonbogen,
author of Knesses Yechezkel. She died in Altona in 1735.
when R Yaakov was Rabbi of Turla. By 1752 R' Yaakov was already
Rabbi of Ternopil.

Yaakov and Rachel Rivka had one son R' Gershon who was a Rabbi
in Rotprsha (spelling?).
R' Gershon's wife was a daughter of R' Shaul (s.i.l. of R' Dovid Lida)
who was a preacher in Brody (Moravia) and Krakow. R' Shail died in 1793.

The above and a great deal more about this prominent clan can be
found in several Hebrew works and, in particular, two by the Rabbi
of Dresden, T' Zvi Horowitz (a) Letoldos Hakehillos be Polin p.59...
(republished by Mossad Rav Kook in 1978) and a postcript to a work
entitled Brachah Meshuleshes, published by R' Simcha Erlich in
Bilgorai in 1935.

Leslie Reich, Manchester

P.S.: I thank that R' Yisroel Asper, who posted on this forum
that R' Yitzchok Landau was the father-in-law of the Noda Beyehuda
is mistaken, but, as stated above, R' Yitxchok's brother was
the father of R' Yechezkel Landau, the Noda Beyehuda.

see Yam Shel Shlomo Yevamot
