One of the best-known published Jewish genealogies. It traces the
descendants of Rabbi Meir Katzenelnbogen of Padua through 16
generations to the present. More than 25,000 people are identified as
descendants. "This is truly a compilation of the elite of Ashkenazic
Jewry, and it is no surprise that one finds among their offspring some
of this century's most important Jews in Europe, Israel, and America. A
very high proportion of genealogies are those of the leading Hassidic
dynasties: Levi Isaac of Berdichev, Halberstam, Rabinowitz, Horowitz,
Rokeach, Shapiro, Spira, Teitelbaum, Twersky, etc."--Rabbi Malcolm H.
