Rabbinic Genealogy SIG #Rabbinic The Rabbi of Wolbrom's Daughter #rabbinic

RC Klein <yeshivish@...>
 

I am trying to figure out an excerpt >from the Yizkor book about the
town of Wolbrom (near Krakow) in Poland in the section which discusses
the town's rabbi, my ancestor, Rabbi Yaakov HaLevi Segal. This excerpt
alludes to some sort of controversy over the rabbi's daughter Tovah
and the identity of her husband, but does not spell out what's going
on nor provide any citations for the controversy.
Does anybody know where I can find out more information about this?
The full page and the entire book can be accessed via the NY Public
Library's digital collections at this page:
https://digitalcollections.nypl.org/items/ae4699c0-28b3-0133-4114-58d385a7bbd0/book#page/176/
As far as I know, my gggg-grandfather Binyamin Eliezer UNGAR-AUERBACH
married a daughter of Rabbi Yaakov Segal, but I don't know her name or
anything else about him, except that his son was Rabbi Reuven Chaim
KLEIN who served as a rabbi in Davidkoff (near Muncasz), Hungary.
Thank you very much for your help.

Rabbinic Genealogy SIG #Rabbinic Connection between KANTOR family and Volozhin family #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

According to a scribbled note written by my great uncle his mother's
family was somehow descendant >from Reb. Chaim of Volozhin. His
grandparents were Shlomo and Sarah Hinde KANTOR of Karlin (Pinsk). The
descendancy seems to be through Sarah Hinde (maiden name unknown).
There is a rumor that Reb Chaim's son Itzaleh was the "unterfirer" at
Sarah Hinde's (or her mother's) wedding, as the bride was an orphan
when she got married.

According to published sources of the Volozhin family, Itzaleh did
have a daughter and son-in-law LANDAU who both died during his
lifetime but I can not find in published sources a mention of my
ancestress. I've been told that many Rabbinical family trees
(including the Volozhin/SOLOVEITCHIK family) do not include children
who were not Rabbis or married to such. I did see another scribbled
chart which mentions the name LANDAU which strengthens my feeling that
we are connected to them.

A prominent member of my above family was R' Chaim Dov KANTOR, who was
the mashgiach of the Yekev (winery) in Zichron Yaacov near Haifa and
Rav Kook's representative in that area. Unfortunately his descendants
do not know of the presumed connection with the Volozhin family.

If anyone knows of our connection with the Volozhin family I would be
happy to hear about it.

TIA

Rabbinic Genealogy SIG #Rabbinic Help identifying portrait - Lowenstam #rabbinic

Cory Streisinger
 

I'm trying to identify the subject of a portrait I've posted on ViewMate at

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM75192

The portrait comes >from an online genealogy site where the subject is
identified as R. Aryeh Leib ben Saul Lowenstam (1690-1755), ABD
Amsterdam. (He is my eighth-great-grandfather.) I'd like to confirm
whether this identification is correct. Based on the inscription and
the book in the portrait, it's also been suggested that this is
actually R. Aryeh Leib's son R. Saul Lowenstam (1717-1790), also ABD
Amsterdam. I've posted a closer view of the inscription at

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM75193

I would appreciate any views on whether this is R. Aryeh Leib, R.
Saul, or someone else, as well as any further translation of the
inscription (sorry about the poor quality), and if anyone knows the
source of this portrait, please let me know.

Thanks very much (and thanks to those who have weighed in already).
Please respond via ViewMate or privately by email.

Yehuda Klausner z"l

Rose Feldman
 

Yehuda Klausner was a Civil Engineer with a doctorate from Princeton University. He was an erudite, modest and friendly man who studied rabbinical lineages with the same scientific approach, rigour and passion which characterized his academic career. We will miss his warm voice and accent, which had an indefinite touch of Eastern Europe.


Yehuda willingly responded to queries of people seeking answers to their genealogical questions.


Yehuda and his wife Yocheved were true partners in life and in genealogy. Together they volunteered for many JewishGen projects, where they especially contributed to RAV-SIG.


Yocheved, our thoughts are with you in these moments of sorrow.
May his memory be for a blessing.
Baruch dayan haemet

A German Jew Who Died In Teheran in 1945 #germany

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

Dear Genners and Siggers,

I had a chance to look at a partial list of graves in the Jewish Cemetery
in Teheran and saw there an entry in Persian alphabet
which reads like: Gelb Kroner Aldsa BRANSTIN. The way the entries are
organized differs >from what we are used to in
other communities and it may contain the deceased father's name as well.
The surname is probably BERNSTEIN or BRAUNSTEIN.
He died in 1945 and the remark on the entry is that he is German.

I am not sure that he was German but probably spoke German. I wonder
whether it rings a bell?
