This is a page for Jewish Rabbinic or Hasidic dynasties.

We're just starting out, feel free to help.


Bible Figures

These are listed ONLY for reference! Please do NOT merge with these profiles. Instead try and find the most recent famous person in your tree, such as the names above, and merge with those. Merging directly with a Bible Figure, creates needless work for yourself and whoever has to then merge the 90 intervening generations from them. These older lines are almost certainly ALREADY in the tree!

As I happened to start the biblical merge with some tree entered by non-Jews, most of the profiles are managed by them. Please contact Shmuel Aharon Kam regarding any questions about these lines.

Baal Shem Tov (BeSH"T) and Hasidic Dynasties

  • Isroel ben Eliezer "Baal Shem Tov": Main Copy

There are many duplicates of this profile on Geni, as many families trace their lineage to Baal Shem Tov.

For reference: List of Hasidic Dynasties: Link to Wikipedia

Twerski/Twersky family

These are just a few "starting points", to which many people are able to trace their families. There are many others in this tree.

  • Rabbi Menachem Nachum Twersky of Chernobyl (1730-1797): Main Copy
    • Rabbi Mordechai Twersky, the Maggid of Chernobyl (1770-1837): Main Copy
      • Rabbi Aaron Twersky of Chernobyl (1784-1871): Main Copy
        • Rabbi Yeshayo Meshulom Zishe Twersky of Chernobyl (1814-1881): Main Copy
          • Rabbi Shlomo Bentzion Twersky of Chernobyl (1870-1939): not in the tree?
        • Rabbi Boruch Osher Twersky of Chernobyl (d. 1905): Main Copy
        • Rabbi Menachem Nochum Twersky of Loiev: Main Copy
      • Rabbi Yitzhak Twersky of Skver: Main Copy
        • Rabbi Avrohom Yehoshua Heshel Twersky of Skver: Main Copy
        • Rabbi Dovid Twersky of Skver (1848-1919): [1]
      • Rabbi Avrohom Twersky of Trisk: Main Copy
      • Rabbi Dovid Twersky of Tulna: Main Copy
      • Rabbi Yaakov Yisroel Twersky of Tsherkas: Main Copy
      • Rabbi Yochanan Twersky of Rachmastrivka: Main Copy

Rokeach family

  • Rabbi Sholom Rokeach of Belz ("Sar Sholom") [2]

Horowitz family

For convenience, until I merge, I (Shiri, SDH) am listing duplicates here and their managers (by initials).

  • Clara Bat Asher: JDS, RS.

Maharal (R' Yehuda Loew) and Rema (R' Moshe Isserles)

There are many, many problems with these lines. I am not even sure how one begins to sort them out. I've tried to make some headway along with several other users, but a lot remains to be done. The problem is further complicated because merge issues that far back don't show up in "Merge Issues" list on my home page. If anyone wants to collaborate on this, I would like to participate (ygb).


Rabbi Shlomo ben Yitzhaqi Tzarfati of Troyes ("RASHI") [3]

Vilna Gaon

Eliyahu Kremer ( "Vilna Gaon" ) [4]

The Berditcherver Rebbe

Levi Isaac (Yitsḥak) ben Meir of Berdichev (The Berditchever Rebbe)
