About Menachem Mendel Margolios-Stengen (Shtengen ben Yoel Feivish Schtengen)

HaRav Menachem Mendl Stangen-Margolioth was the rabbi of Pińczów from about 1615 to 1635 and then became rabbi of Prezmysl. Menachem Mendl was the son of Rabbi Yoel Feivish Stangen and Fraidchy Schmelkes. He married Sheindel Margolioth, daughter of Moses Mordechai Margolioth, who bore him seven children, and then married the daughter of Moses Harif.

His tombstone says the following [could someone add an English translation?]:

נטמן אסרי תג פסח שנת תי״ב לפ״ק הגאון ההחסיד המפורסים מו״ה מנחם מענדיל בן הרבני החסיד יואל פייוויש שטנגן זצ״ל ואצלו נקבר בנו הרב מו״ה אליהו ז״ל. (שם ושארית'.

" The rabbi of Przemyśl during the 1740's [sic- should be 1640s] was Rabbi Menachem ben Rabbi Yoel Feivish Shtangin (Ashkenazi)"

  • The Torah Ark in Renaissance Poland: A Jewish Revival of Classical Antiquity By Ilia M. Rodov page 144:

“In Pińczów, the earliest evidence of a rabbi names Menachem-Mendl Stangen-Margolioth (d. 1652), who lived there from 1615 to 1635. He was born in Germany, married a daughter of the head of the yeshiva in Kazimierz, Moses Mordechai Margolioth, and after her death in 1624, married a daughter of Moses Harif, the head of the Rabbinical Court in L’viv.6” 6 On the first known rabbis of Pińczów, see Zunz, Ir ha-Zedek, 74-150ff; Friedberg, Luhot zikaron, 12 n. 10; Yoel Yakobovich-Ashkenazi, “Rabanei Pinchev le-doroteyhem” (Generations of the Pińczów rabbis) in In Pinchev togt shoyn nisht: Sefer zikaron le Kelihat Pinchev (Tel Aviv, 1970), 113-14 (Hebrew); Wunder Elif Margaliot, 12-16 no 16.

----------------------------------------

Hamaor needs to be read carefully.

RMM means rabbi Moshe Mordechai, and NOT rabbi Menachem Mendel...

And the tree of the mother is being followed not the father.

I don't know how to merge this info with

I now found this:

page 17 which proves I am correct.
