About Rabbi Psachie "Petahja" Meir Schipper

Shochet and Bodek by Admor Chaim Halberstam, [Divrei Chaim, of Sanz] היה גם שו"ב ברודניק.

From Raphael Mahler: Patahja Speir, moved to Nowy Sacz from Rudnik. Raphael Mahler also stated that Petahja was a Jew handsome like a royal and very smart.

Per Zahava Kohn in her book FRAGMENTS OF A LOST CHILDHOOD: "I was frequently told that my great-grandfather was the shochet (religious slaughterer) to the Divrei Chaim. That was said to be a great honour, because the Divrei Chaim, who was the leader of the Sanz Hasidim, was renowned as a great Talmud chacham, in outstanding Torah scholar." Name of Petahja from Raphael Mahler's Eulogy of his brother Petahja Mahler.

---

Pethahiah, the youngest son of Yitzhok Asher Mahler and Rukhl Mahler, resembled his grandfather on his mother's side, rebbe Pethahiah Shiper, whose name he carried. Like his grandfather, Rebbe Pethahiah, shokhet [ritual slaughter] in Rudnik and later in Sandz, the stately, beautiful Jew, a talmud khokhim, inherited the proud tall figure, the classic Jewish countenance, the coal-black velvet eyes that burned with Hasidic ardor while at the same time, expressing unlimited goodness and deep love of people. His life as an unflinching fighter and his dignified, heroic death, showed that not only had herited his outward beauty but also the best of both his grandfather and great-grandfather.
