About Joseph Jerusalem

If anyone has information or sources regarding this profile, please send a message to the mangers, or add a note in this section.

PLEASE NOTE: Further investigation is required to verify Jehiel Michal's father, as some important sources disputing Shimshon being the father of Jehiel Michal have been brought to light, and instead ascertain that Yosef Yerushalmi Spira is his father.


1. Kalman Yerushalmi Spira (bef 1504 - ) > father of Yosef Yerushalmi Spira ( bef 1522 - ) > father of Yechiel below *ref. document and Lawrence Weinberg -

2. Rabbi Yechiel Michel SPIRA (born about 1530, rabbi in Posen). Shimshon as father conflicts with information from Lawrence WEINBERG who has two sources claiming Yechiel Michel SPIRA's father was Yosef Yerushalmi SPIRA.
