About Rabbi Chaggi Chanoch, Henoch Ha-Levi Fraenkel, A.V.D Bromberg and Hanau

Regarding his reputation and his various names --

From article Koppel Fraenkel and His Descendants: "He [Koppel Fraenkel] had two sons . . . as well as a son-in-law Chaggi Chanoch from Eisenstadt who he had adopted as a son . . . . Rabbi Chanoch, also known as Henoch Hoenig Levi, who called himself Fraenkel, was the pride of the family. He was a learned rabbi but he was equally well versed in worldly affairs and was the Dayan of the Vienna Beth-Din. . . . Chaggai Chanoch Halevy -- called Morenu Henoch in Fuerth -- surpassed his brothers by his strong personality, his distinguished manners and his vast knowledge. Soon the most prominent Christian men of learning in Nuernberg and at the University of Altdorf frequented his house. in all questions of Jewish knowledge he became the guide of the scientists Wagenseil, Christoph Arnold and Conrad Fromueller.
