STERN and PANET Families #rabbinic


Miriam R. Taylor <mtaylor@...>
 

Hello,

My name is Miriam Taylor, I am a descendant of Rabbi Ezekiel LANDAU
and Rabbi Yehuda KAHANA through my maternal grandfather Shaul Leib
STEINMETZ. In reminiscences my grandfather wrote in 1938, he
mentions that he is related to both Rabbi Moshe STERN of Polne
Ruscova (Poienile de sub Munte) and to Rabbi Moshe PANET of Dej. In
both cases the exact relationship is not clear, in the case of Rabbi
Moshe PANET it is probable that he was the grandson of Aharon Yaakov
Elimelech STEINMETZ, who was the great grandfather of my grandfather
Shaul Leib STEINMETZ.

If any of you have information relevant to my research, please write
to me at <mtaylor@bio.indiana.edu>.

There is a book by Devora Gliksman - A Sun and a Shield: The
Chassidic Dynasty of Dej. It was published by Feldheim pub, 1996.

The rabbi Moshe PANET (1843 - 1903) mentioned was a grandson of
the famous Rabbi Yecheszel of Karlsburg (the Mareh Yechezkel).
The latter, a pupil of the 'Broch Ta'am' was the progenitor of a
prolific Romanian rabbinic and chasidic dynasty whose scions are
flourishing in chasidic circles to this day in USA and Israel.
Information should be available in those circles.

The other rabbi mentioned, Moshe STERN (1852-1923, son of Binyomin)
was a father-in-law of Rabbi Dovid (ben Kalonymus) SPERBER (1875 -
1903). The latter a prolific author of halachic works was Rabbi of
Brasow (spelling ?) in Romania.

Rabbi Dovid has a grandson, Professor Daniel SPERBER, in the Hebrew
University in J'm, I think. When I chatted to him after one of a
series of lectures (on Jewish minhagim - his forte) which he gave
here last year in Manchester, he disclaimed owning an email address.
However, I would suggest Ms. Taylor to contact him.
