About Rivkah Teomim (Horowitz)

“Fraenkel is a rabbinic surname. It was adopted by a group of families who had sojourned in Franconia (Franken in German) during the Middle Ages, not far from the bright communities of the Rhine Valley, well known at Babylon and as far as Yemen.

"In the ancient Jewish world, to have a rabbinic name was to be inscribed in a complex system of relationships and movements of thought...

"The Teomim-Fränkels--still farther to the east: This family descends from nine children of Moses Aaron Lamël Teomim-Fränkel (XVIIth Century at Prague) and of Rivka Stern Hurwitz (daughter of Israel Horowitz, of the name of the celebrated and rich Prague family which had the favor of the Habsburgs in the XVIth Century, and lent them much).

The Teomims were already known at Prague, where Rachel Teomim (equally a descendant of Horowitz) married...Yomtov Lipman Heller. In Hebrew, Teomim means 'twins.'

"The Teomim-Fränkel family, which produced almost as many rabbis as the [Heller-Fränkel-Mirels] branch and occupied the totality of rabbinic posts in Eastern Europe, multiplied at Prague, in Bohemia, and swarmed [a essaimé] into Galicia, Podolia, and Volhynia."
