About Jacob Lazar

Jacob Brull, born 1749, was the son of Rabbi Lesel Brull of Prossnitz, Moravia. As an adult, Jacob was commonly known in the community as "Jacob b. Lesel". When Jewish families were ordered to use official surnames in 1787, Jacob opted to assume "LASAR" [Lazar], not Brull; various entries in Prossnitz Jewish records also refer to him as "Jacob Leszel" and "Jacob Lasus".


Jacob Lazar lived his entire life in Prossnitz [now Prostejov, Czech Republic], and, in the mid-1780s, was residing in household #42 in Prossnitz's Jewish section. By 1787, he was living in households #29-30 (also household #32), and later in life (by the 1820s), in household #6. According to "Geschichte der Juden in Prossnitz" by Dr. Leopold Goldschmied, Jacob and another man, Aaron Charsap, were sent to the court at Vienna in 1797, "as representatives of the community." In Goldschmied's history, both men are referred to as "deputies of the chairman". The Goldschmied piece also includes an important footnote about Jacob: "Jakob Brull = Jakob b. Rabbi Lesel, Inhaber der Familienstelle 159, starb als Jakob Lasar, 78 jahrig, im Jahre 1827." This passage has been translated as: "Jacob Brull was Jacob ben Rabbi Lesel, possessor of familiant #159, and died as Jacob Lasar, age 78, in the year 1827."


According to Prossnitz Jewish records, Jacob Lazar died in household #16 on 21 October 1827, age 78. See: http://www.badatelna.eu/fond/1073/reprodukce/?zaznamId=2229&reproId=53661
