I am researching a possible family connection between our family and a
Rabbi Dovid of Novarodok , who served as the Rav of Novarodok some two
hundred years ago and more. According to a family tradition, we are
descendants of his brother (no name stated).
R' Dovid, also known as the "Galia Masechta" , the name of the book he
authored, was the son of a R' Moshe of Kletzk. They are mentioned in
Maimon's "Sarei Hameia" (in Hebrew) and in books on the Yeshiva in
Volozhin, as R' Dovid was a contemporary of R' Chaim of Volozhin. I
have not found any family name for either of the above. R' Dovid's
son-in-law, who published teh book "Galia Mesechta" went under the
name RABINOWITCH which I understand was a common name adopted by many
Several years ago, in response to previous posts to this forum, I had
been in touch with his descendants who asked me for details of our
connection which I couldn't supply with much authority.
I would be happy to here from his descendants and/or anyone who has
information regarding his extended family, eg: other children of his
father, Moshe of Kletzk, and if he did have a family name. Our family
name in his line has been ABRAMOWITZ but I do not know for how many
