About Aaron Broide A.B.D. Kalwarija and later dayan Vilnius

"... in the small town of Kalvaria, near Suwalki, there was a Jewish settlement led by Rabbi Aaron Brody 250 years before Jews came to Suwalki..."

And about Zelig Reuven Bengis, his wife, Shayna, was the "granddaughter of Rabbi Aaron Brody, dayan of Vilna".


The following is from a back issue of Avotaynu, which I cannot link to. Google the quote or google Shalom Braude and Avotaynu for the link.

One piece of below is incorrect -- He was NOT the father of Father of Chaim Tsvi Broide, whose daughter married Zelig Reuven Bengis.

Grandfather - Shalom Braude, Father R. Haim of Janow

"Shalom Braude ... was the father of A Haim Braude, ABD Janow, father of R. Aaron Braude, ABD Kalwariya who had six ..."

Rabbinic family, originating in Bohemia, that settled in Galicia, Lithuania, and Hungary. The surname Broda (Braude, Broide, Braudo) indicates that the family’s origins were likely in the city of Brod, though the name could also be a Hebrew acronym for bene rabanim ve-dayane emet (the sons of rabbis and judges of truth).

The earliest known ancestor of the family is thought to be Sha’ul, rabbi of Bumsla (Mladá Boleslav, near Prague), who was a grandson of Yehudah Leib ben Betsal’el (Maharal). Sha’ul’s son, Avraham Broda (ca. 1650–1717), was the author of Eshel Avraham. Avraham’s son, Mosheh (1674–1741), served as rabbi in Hanau and Bamberg and wrote Ohel Mosheh, a supplement to and explanation of his father’s text. Mosheh’s son, Sha’ul, completed the task of publishing these two works together.

The further genealogy and chronology of the family is not entirely clear. Some members reached Galicia; others went to Lithuania where some served as rabbis and others were prominent in the Musar movement. Aharon (d. 1798), the son of Mosheh, moved to Lithuania and served as the head of the rabbinical court (rabbi of the community) in the city of Kalvarija. Aharon’s two sons also served as rabbis: Aryeh Leib in Kalvarija and Binyamin (d. 1818) in Grodno.

Binyamin’s son was Ḥayim (d. 1826), the author of Torat or ve-derekh Ḥayim (1823) and Zera‘ Ḥayim (1907). Ḥayim married Sarah, the daughter of his uncle, Aryeh Leib. One of their sons, Dov Ber (d. 1897), wrote Divre binah (Words of Understanding; published 1888–1890). Another son, Avraham Yosef, had four sons, great-grandsons of both Aryeh Leib and Binyamin: Ḥayim, Binyamin Heshel of Grodno, Aryeh Leib of Lwów, and Simḥah. He also had two daughters, Grina and Rayzl.
