The Eger and Gins-Schlesinger (Sofer) Relatives - The Greatest Rabbis of All Time

In 1739, Gutel (Yittel) Leidesdorfer, the daughter of Samuel Perez (Sanwel) Leidesdorfer of Nassau Germany married Akiva Eger The Elder, one of the greatest Rabbis of all time. Two of her children, Akiva Eger The Younger and Simcha Bunim Gins-Schlesinger were also immortalized in the history books as being the greatest rabbis of their generation. Gutelís granddaughter, Sarah Eger, married Moses Schreiber who went by the name of Chatan Sofer.

Even today, their graves are frequented by tourists from around the world eager to pay their respects to these great men. Their timeless writings remain core curriculum in Yeshivas and their religious rulings still valid in rabbinical institutions.

An interesting divide is the fact that the wealth of the Leidersdorfer family enabled this branch to be dedicated to Judaism, even defining the ultra-Orthodox laws and customs, while the wealth and nobility of the descendants of Aron Mendel Leidesdorf von Neuwall and Marcus Ritter von Neuwall caused them to converted to Christianity.
