Yichus of MaHaRaSHaL #rabbinic


Michael Waas
 

Hi SIG,

Could someone let me know what is the accepted Yichus of the
MaHaRaSHaL. In the little bit of access I have to the book on the
Lurias, there is a tree that states it is a reconstruction of the
family beginning with an ancestor Itzhak who was close to the Rashi.
What is the validity of this yichus? I am looking at its source
material >from sefer Ma'alot Hayuchasin and it seems to be the only
source for it.

I'd appreciate any discussion on this. I looked through the SIG's
archives and didn't find much discussion on the yichus of the
MaHaRaSHaL.

Best,

Which book are you referencing?

Did you try "The Lurie Legacy" by Neil Rosenstein?

The Maharshal himself cites Rashi as his ancestor,
see Yam Shel Shlomo Yevamot
(I am currently unable to provide an exact citation)

See also Dr. Meir Raffeld's PhD dissertation if possible

Sincerely,

In Tshuvos Maharshal # 29, he cites his yichus - family tree.
