Circa 1740. A further Horowitz genealogy does not appear for another century, in the work of Rabbi Pinchas Katzenellenbogen (1691–1767,), a great-grandson of the famed Rabbi Pinchas Horowitz of Cracow (through his daughter Hinda). Rabbi Katzenellenbogen wrote a masterful historical memoir named Yesh Manchilin containing many genealogical details and family trees. This invaluable source remained only in manuscript form in the Oppenheim collection in the Bodleian library, until transcribed and published by Rabbi Isaac Feld in 1986 (Machon Chasam Sofer, Jerusalem).[1] There are several chapters devoted to Rabbi Pinchas Horowitz and the Horowitz family. In Chapter 135 Rabbi Katzenellenbogen writes:

   I will copy that which I saw in a manuscript volume of Rabbi Aryeh Leib, the rabbi of Boskovitz, the son of Rabbi Menachem Mendel, rabbi of Raustitz and head of the rabbinical court of Nikolsburg, son of the elder sage Rabbi David, rabbi and av beth din in Trebitsch.My ancestor wrote the order of genealogy of the family Horowitz in Prague: This is what I have been told by R. Zalman Fischhof of Vienna. R. Yisrael S.G.L.: his son R. Pinchas built the synagogue in Prague; his son Yeshaye (son of Pinchas); Zalman (son of Yeshaye); three daughters of R. Yeshaye were (1) Raizel, (2) Nechama, and (3) Nissel. R. Lipman (in the manuscript it says in parenthesis—“this may be Rabbi Uri Lippmann [the famed preacher in Vienna and Prague-ed.] who was the father of the well-known printer in Sulzbach who lived to a great age, R. Aron”) was the son of the aforementioned Raizel, the wife of R. Uri Kelma [Kuma, Kamen]; R. Shimon son of Raizel; R Zalman Fischhof son of Shimon.[2]  [As for] the above-mentioned R Lipman: (in the manuscript it says “If this is the R Lipman who was the father of R Aron the printer, then R. Aron would be the brother of Hendel who is the maternal grandmother of the above-named Rabbi David, and that seems illogical to assume that R. Aron could be a sibling of Rabbi David’s grandmother, and that is a sufficient discussion.”).

Notes du traducteur/Translator notes:

GAON : litteralement genie , titre donne aux grands maitres ( Torah et Talmud )*

  • *Exegete : en hebreu DARCHAN . L'exegese a une grande importance dans le judaisme .
    • *maitre de justice : vraisemblablement tres erudit et enseignant le droit rabbinique
      • *President du Tribunal : mot a mot pere du tribunal rabbinique generalement le rabbin qui etait en meme temps juge principal

"Uri Lipmann, father of Ahron (ben Uri Lipmann Fraenkel), was | a son-in-law of Auerbach | a member of the lasr Vienna rabbinate under the presidency of Gerson Ulif. He was a celebrated speaker ... " His house, 90 herrengasse, was one of the best in the Getto. Newly built it reflected the wealth and taste of the owner. The stone steps, the ornaments in front, a lovely garden with its own cottage, these gave an impression of elegance" according to Kauffman ( Die letzte Verteibung). One of his daughters (Resell) was married to Koppel Ries, a son of his colleague, Model Levi Oettingen. Koppel Ries, thus brother-in-law of Ahron (ben Uri Lipmann Fraenkel), later was a respected member of the Viennese exiles in Berlin. Uri Lipmann had occupied several rabbinates before his Vienna appointement..."


In Vienna:


"The last rabbi of Vienna and of Lower Austria was Gershon Ashkenazi(C1625-1693)., whose colleagues were Mordecai Löb Oettingen (the friend of the Christian divine Wagenseil) and the preachers Uri Lipmann[ , ] Hirz Koma and Enoch Fränkel."
