Gaon the great master, scholar, liturgical poet, rabbi and preacher of the Frankfurt community (possibly also in Prague)

Here is the situation with those older Neuss folks who moved from Prague to Frankfurt: There was a statement published somewhere that Rabbi Akiva Frankfurter explained his decision to move to Frankfurt as being that his uncle, the official shochet, had died, and that Akiva took over his position and also arranged for the care of the uncle’s orphans. We looked for years and years for this man, but because the printed source claimed that the year was 1550, nothing fit. This was doubly frustrating because the orphans were all named (but not their father) and because there was no explanation given of why Akiva’s father was also living in Frankfurt. That part we just ignored, assuming that Akiva was giving his own curriculum vitae and that his father and he moved to Fft at different times.

The big breakthrough came when we got a copy of the Frankfurt pinkas, which had all of the information, including the schochet uncle’s name (Getz) and the revelation that the year was not 1550, but shortly before 1563!
