About Rabbi Judah Leib Bonhardt, A.B.D of Frankfurt and der Oder

Judah Leib Bonhardt of Frankfurt (Oder) (Yiddish: יהודה לייב באנהאַרד פון פראנקפורט) (German: Juda Löb Bonhardt aus Frankfurt; c. 1720 - 1784) was a prominent mid-18th-century German rabbi and patriarch of the Bonhardt family.

Judah Leib Bonhardt was born in Frankfurt an der Oder, Germany to a wealthy German-Jewish rabbinic family. In his early years, he served as the Av Beit Din of Frankfurt an der Oder, later moving to Leipzig, where he amassed notable wealth importing and exporting goods from Poland to Germany during the annual Leipzig Trade Fair. He included his son, Tzvi Hersh Bonhardt in several of his financial dealings, allowing Tzvi Hersh to be exposed to Polish Jewry. His son later moved to Vodislav and married Sarah Rachel, daughter of Betzalel HaLevi of Zhovkva. Judah Leib stayed in Germany and died in Leipzig in 1784, just before his grandson, Simcha Bunim Bonhardt became a Hasid.
