About Pedaiah

1. Pedaya is mentioned in Abarbanel Family Scroll as father of Zerubavel – 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. However, the Abravanel Scroll is not the only family scroll/tree that cites Pedaya as father of Zerubavel.
