1/2/2013 1:27 AM Hello David,

Father David's Hebrew name is Dovid Ben/(son of) Reb Menashe. The word Reb is an honorific term used in front of the given name of the father, however, it does NOT imply rabbi. Some people prefer to translate the word as "Mr.".

Mother Esther's Hebrew name is Ester Bas/(daughter of) Aryeh Tzvi. In this case, the word Reb was not included as part of her father's name.

Hope that this serves to clarify the information....Jo
