This is a page for Venerable Torah Sages, prominent Hasidic dynasties and illustrious Jewish Rabbinic lineages.

We're just starting out, feel free to help and insert additional leading profiles.

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.

Much more information on the Biblical Tree Merge page.

Baal Shem Tov (BeSH"T) (1698 - 1760) and Hasidic Dynasties

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

For reference:

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.

Rokeach family

Horowitz family

Much more data listed on Horowitz Merge page.

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).
