Profiles

Yehudah Loew of Prague, also known as the Maharal, was one of the outstanding Jewish minds of the sixteenth century. He was held in great esteem by his contemporaries and has had a profound impact on all streams of Judaism. Ironically, he is credited with the creation of a golem, a human figure created from clay and brought to life by use of the Ineffable Name of God, an action he would have opposed. The Maharal was a descendant of King David of Israel, and ancestor of numerous Rabbinic dynasties

The goal of this project is to cleanup (merge and correct) these branches of the big tree, and to encourage managers of private profiles on these branches to go public.
