Note: see descendants & details on Goldschmidt genealogy site OR on (JE): Isaac ben Samson Ha-Kohen, Bohemian Talmudist; died May 30, 1624, in Prague. He was assistant rabbi and magistrate of the community, and was son-in-law of the chief rabbi of Prague, Lewa ben Bezaleel, and the father of Hayyim ha-Kohen (rabbi at Frankfort-on-the-Main and at Posen) and Naphtali ha-Kohen (rabbi at Lublin). Isaac was in the habit of writing acrostic introductions to his own and other works. He wrote: a supplement to "Hatan Damim," a commentary on the Pentateuch by Samuel Runkel (Prague, 1605); glosses to "Pa'neah Raza," a small cabalistic work by Isaac ben Judah ha-Levi (ib. 1602); a commentary on the Pentateuch, in German (ib. 1608); notes on Midrash Tehillim (ib. 1613); "Kizzur Mizrahi," a commentary on Rashi to Genesis. Isaac, according to a statement in one of his glosses, was occupied for some time in the composition of a cabalistic work entitled "Sidre Bereshit." AND *see reference to Yitzhak ben Shimshon: ..native of Prague and son-in-law of Maharal (Rabbi Löw). Among other things, Yitzhak ben Shimshon was the Rabbi in Vienna and Mikulov. He was an esteemed Talmudist and philanthropist. He had published the work of older men of learning – among others, the lectures of his father-in-law (Derush al ha-Torah, Poznan, 1592) – and is considered the author of the first Yiddish translation of the Pentateuch (Basle, 1583), or at least the commentary to it (Prague, 1610). In 1592 he accompanied his father-in-law, Rabbi Löw, to an audience with Emperor Rudolf II, an account of which he also recorded. Yitzhak ben Shimshon died in 1624 and is buried in the Old Jewish Cemetery in Prague

Note: Katzenellenbogen (JE) An old, widely ramified family counting many rabbis among its members, who were and are still found in Italy, Poland, Germany, Alsace, and also in America. It derived its name from the locality of Katzenelnbogen in the Prussian province of Hesse-Nassau.. ..Samuel left one son, who is known under the name of Saul Wahl (Katzenellenbogen) who was supposedly elected King of Poland for one night when the nobles were unable to decide on a permanent choice OR see Katzenellenbogen-Wahl, Katzenellenbogen & Katznellenbogen on Goldschmidt site
Note: JE; A name frequent among German Jews. From the twelfth, or at any rate from the fifteenth century, the name Bacharach, in various spellings - as Bacharach, Bachrach, Bachrich, etc... derive or lived in the city Bacharach in Rhenish Prussia.. 2nd mention is of a scholar Ephraim Gumprecht Bacharach of Frankfort a.Main, quoted by Moses Minz in 15th century, is less liable to doubt. Beginning of 16th century has Menahem Man Bacharach, rabbi in Worms.. David, Asher (Anschel) and Moses Bacharach. End of 16th century the name Bacharach occurs more frequently in western Germany. In Frankfort there is a Mendel, son of Isaac Bacharach, who died there Aug. 23, 1599. His son Moses, a prominent member of the congregation, died there Sept. 11, 1620. Moses' son, Issachar Baer Gans Bacharach, a member of the rabbinate, died Aug. 24, 1678. Issachar's son, Naphtali Herz Gans Bacharach ( - Jul 8, 1709), endorses the Responsa of Jair Ḥayyim Bacharach, but does not mention that they are related, which goes to prove that, though bearing the same name, they were not of the same family. The other Bacharachs may be divided into two families; of which the one is to be traced back to Tobias ben Joseph Solomon Bacharach, who died as a martyr in Rushony (Russia) Sept. 19, 1659 with Judah and his grandson Jacob belonging to the family; while the other is distinguished by the great Talmudist, Jair Ḥayyim Bacharach of Worms.. to the latter, besides the three generations of rabbis at Worms, Samuel ( - 1615), Samson ( - 1670), and Jair Ḥayyim ( - 1702); the latter's grandson, Michael, a famous Talmudist of Prague, who died there Jan. 16, 1801; Baer Bacharach, who died at Nikolsburg Sept. 12, 1806, and was a great-grandson of Jair Ḥayyim.
