About Akiba Schaul Saul GUGGENHEIM (Gugenum)

- Vorsteher Member of Worms City Council

Pascal Faustini:

Mentionned in 1629 at Worms, parnas 1643

census 1642 "zum Baren"

from Grune Buch, today diseapeared, but a copy was made before WWII by Bernard Rosenthal at Leo Baeck Institute in New York. Microfilm copy procured by John Berkowitch and given to Pascal Faustini.

John Berkowitch:

o Le R. Akiba (Schaul Akiba), petit-fils du rabbin, Grand Maître Akiba "Frankfurter" (Tableau 1-1), né probablement après le décès de ce dernier en 1597 si les règles concernant l'attribution des noms ont été respectées. Alors que ses frères font leur vie à Bingen et à Francfort, lui s'établit à Worms. Cette découverte donne enfin foi à la croyance de certains en une parenté entre les Gugenheim de Francfort et ceux de Worms. Le registre de la communauté de Worms, Das Grüne Buch, le cite à maintes reprises entre 1629 et 1652, l'année de sa mort [3-6, pages 104b à 159b], avec l'orthographe Gugenum et Guggenheim. En 1642, il est à z. Bären et il est rapporté parnas pour le moins à partir de 1643. La référence [3-1-1, page 17, ligne 36] relative à son décès dit he-alouf ha-parnas kevod har. R. Schaul Ekiba bar Elia Yusef (l'illustre parnas, l'honorable rabbin Schaul Ekiba fils d'Elia Yusef) suivi de la précision har. R. Ekiba parnas 23 Nissan 412 (l'honorable rabbin Ekiba, 1er avril 1652)[3-6, page 159b]. Une coïncidence remarquable fait qu'un autre Akiba meurt presqu'à la même date. Ce dernier n'est toutefois ni Gugenheim, ni parnas, mais Levy et hazan [3-1-1, page 17, ligne 30]. Leurs noms à tous les deux figurent sur la liste des tombes du cimetière de Worms [3-8]. La première femme du R. Akiba est une Leah rapportée, Leah asht ha-parnas har. R. Ekiba (Leah épouse du parnas rabbin Ekiba)[3-1-2, page 17, ligne 26][3-6, page 157b], fille du R. Jacob de Kallstatt [3-1-1, page 17, ligne 26], décédée 3 Tishri 411 (28 septembre 1650) et est aussi enterrée à Worms [3-8]. Sa seconde épouse est une Kelchen qui meurt treize ans plus tard [3-1-1, page 28, ligne 16].

A Walk through Jewish Worms

Judengasse

The Judengasse (Jews' Street) is situated in the northeast of the medieval town center. Starting at Martinsp./brte (Martin's Gate), the street follows the slightly curved course of the medieval town wall. The buildings on the northern side of the street are even built into the wall. From the llth century until the abolition of the ghetto in 1801 exclusively Jews lived here. Around 1500 there were only 42 houses for about 300 residents. The towers of the town wall were still easily accessible, not yet incorporated into the buildings. From the late 16th century onwards the number of the houses and the inhabitants doubled. The narrowness of the street and the tall buildings became characteristic features of the densely populated Jewish quarter. The present impression conveys this situation rather accurately aside from the improvements in the housing conditions, resulting from two decades of renovation.

As in the other parts of the town theJudengasse houses were given individual names. Near Martin's Gate, for instance, we encounter the 14th-century buildings "to the Black Bear" (No. 11) and "to the Horseshoe" (No. 13). The latter displays skillfully layed brick vaults supported by consoles in the cellar and on the ground floor. A typical 18th-century building is the stately home of the Wertheimer family called "to the Jug" (No. 16/18). It was built in the period of reconstruction after the destruction of Worms by troops of King Louis XlV of France in 1689.

A few steps further at Synagogenplatz (Synagogue Square) 2 is the house "to the Sun". Like the houses "to the Jug" (No. 16/18), "to the Whi
