About Gittel Luntz

The Gaon's first wife was Moras Channah bas Yehuda Leib a'h, of Kaidan. After she passed away he married Moras Gittel bas Rabbi Meir Lunz a'h, of Kruz, Lithuania. The fact that the Gaon was married twice is the source of a great deal of confusion. There are families with traditions of descent from Rebbetzin Gittel, his second wife. Since sources in her family show conclusively that she did not bear the Gaon any children, these families must be descended from her first husband.

One researcher made a monumental blunder with regard to the Gaon's second wife. He knew that the Gaon was the brother-in- law of Rav Yechezkel Lunz of Shavli but he assumed that the connection was through Rebbetzin Malkah, Rav Yechezkel's wife. He drew up a hypothetical family tree of the Gaon's family, including all the descendants of Rav Yechezkel Lunz as being descended from the Gaon's "sister" Rebbetzin Malkah Lunz.
