Abraham and Benjamin SINGER, authors of "Ha-Madrik" #general


Judith Singer
 

I am looking for information about Abraham and Benjamin SINGER,
brothers who were joint authors of "Ha-Madrik," a pedagogic anthology
of the Talmud, written around the middle of the 19th century.
Specifically, I would like to know the name of their father or even
just their town of origin. I am hopeful that in a Hebrew version of
Ha-Madrik, their names will be written in traditional Jewish manner,
so that I could learn their father's name. Unfortunately, I cannot
read Hebrew. I would appreciate help >from someone who can read Hebrew
in locating this book and then translating the authors' patronymic.

By the way, I already know that they are the grandsons of Benjamin
Wolf LOW, 1775-1851, a rabbi and scholar, but that hasn't helped me
find the name of their father.

Thank you for your help.

Judith Singer asked about the father of Abraham and Benjamin Singer.

He was Rabbi Pesach aka Fulop Singer (umlaut over the u in Fulop), b. in 1816
in Uhersky Brod (now in the Czech Republic), d. 1898, buried in Spisske
Podhradie (now in Slovakia).

He was rabbi of rabbi of Varpalota (1847-187?) then Kirchdorf aka Szepesujfalu
aka Zips.

His wife was Chaye Feigele Halevy Loewy. Her grandfather was Benjamin Wolf Loew.
So Abraham and Benjamin were the latter's great-grandsons.

Their father was (Rabbi) Pesach
Rabbi Avraham was Rabbi of "Palata" and vicinity.
I do not know where this place is. Searching the JewishGen database, produced
some hits that may refer to this town (One town, Beled, Hungary would seem to
fit, but with a Jewish population of 188 in 1880, it would seem doubtful.
Usually, when a Rabbi is chief rabbi of a town and surrounding area, the town
mentioned is usually a more prominent one). Check out the others. BTW, the
book was published in Pressburg (now Bratislava, Slovakia) in 1902.

I am connected to Abraham and Benjamin SINGER through my father's paternal and
maternal lines.

The brothers are my second cousins three times removed as descendants of
Yechezkel haLevi LOWY/ NICOLAUER, who was my 4G grandfather. Rabbi Yechzkel
Wolf SEGEL, author of "Toras Yechezkel," was leader of the Jewish community of
Hunfalva/Hunsdorf, Hungary (now Huncovce, Slovakia) >from 1818 to 1824 and
founded a yeshiva there. He was born in Liptoszentmiklos, Lipto, Hung.
(Liptovske Mikulas, Slov.) Chaye Feigele LOWY, daughter of Rabbi J. Samuel
(Aharon Joseph Samuel) LOWY, was his granddaughter and 1st cousin of my 2 G
grandmother Eleanora SPITZ POLACSEK.

Chaye Feigele LOWY was probably born in Trencsen, Hung. / Trencin, Slovakia,
where her Rabbi LOWY and his wife Juditha lived until their deaths in 1882 and
1876 respectively. Benjamin Wolf was born in Varpalota, Veszprem, Hung. in 1855.
He married Margit Mindel MOSKOVITS b. Sarospatak, Hung., whose father Ignatz/
Izsak MOSKOVITS was a brother of my paternal great-grandfather Markusz. Benjamin
and Margit had four children I know of Ernest Jeremiah, Adele, Fani and Irma.

Biographical information about the SINGER family can be found in Abraham
Singer's Torat Yehezkel, published in Pecs, 1899.

Michael Rony and I are both researching the SINGER/SANGER family >from
Liptoszentmiklos.
