About Hananya, 5th Exilarch

Abarbanel – undated handwritten manuscript from the collection of the late Rabbi Shmuel Gorr, held by Chaim Freedman.

Reference was made to “Elef Margaliot” 1993, Meir Wunder.


Hananiah was the son of Zorobabel by his third wife. The brother by the same wife was Meshullam who is numbered 4th in the Exilarch list. His sister in the same parentage is Shelomith, wife of Elnathan, Governor of Judea 510-490 BCE. That marriage produced another Davidic lineage.
