About Leah Katz (1st wife), [Maharal dau. #7]

Leah Loew

  • Born in 1555 - Prague
  • Deceased in 1578, aged 23 years old

Lea LOEW, daughter no. 5 of the Maharal of Prague, married Rabbi Isaac (Jizchak) (Yitzhak) HaCohen Katz (Jacob Elhanan) (d. 30 May 1624 Prague), son of Rabbi Samson (Simson) COHEN.

Lea LOEW died childless, and Rabbi Yitzhac then married Lea younger sister Voegelin Loew.

One biography of Maharal - ויקיגניה - claims that the Maharal was married twice. His first wife was the daughter of Rabbi Abraham Haiut, and Lea & Feigele were daughters of this marriage.

Most other biography versions of Maharal do not mention the first marriage and named Pearl as the mother of all Maharal's children, including Lea and Feigele-Voegele
