Tombstone Inscriptions of Aleppo Rabbis

This list is the transcription and translation of tombstone inscriptions of 250 rabbis from Aleppo most of whom were buried there, as reported in the Hebrew book Sefer Asher LeKedoshim beAram Tsoba, by Rabbi David Tsion Laniado, published in Jerusalem in 1952.

The present index provides the surname, the given name and the father's name - when available - as well as the Hebrew year of death, the corresponding Gregorian year, the place of death and notes.


We acknowledge the tremendous contributions and lifelong dedication of Mathilde Tagger, z"l who made this index available. For many years, and right until her untimely death, Mathilde Tagger was a very close friend and collaborator with Jeff Malka. Together they worked to promote Sephardic genealogy research and educate the public about its enormous potential. Mathilde compiled this information based upon the original source material: Klarsfeld, Serge. Mémorial de la Déportation des Juifs de France. Paris, 1978.

In addition, we express our grateful appreciation to Dr. Jeff Malka for his monumental ongoing effort to collect and make accessible Sephardic genealogical information, and for his generosity in contributing his extraordinarily valuable collection to JewishGen.
