Families Weisz and Felsenburg

Families Weisz and Felsenburg

 

The golden age of the jewry in Balassagyarmat was the era of the so called dualism, the Austro-Hungary Monarcy of Joseph Ferencz, between 1868 and 1918, when the monarchy was considered to be one of the leading political forces of the continent. The most prominent persons of this time period in Balassagyarmat were Salamon Weisz and Mór(itz) Felsenburg.
Salamon Wiesz was the leader of the faith commune for decades, and he was the owner of one of the biggest lordships in Hungary, despite the fact he haven't even had a hungarian ancestry. The other well-respected man, Mór(itz) Felsenburg, who later became related to Salamon Weisz, because his daughter married Salamon's son, was the leading liqueur and alcoholic beverage manufacturer of the area. Hereby we would like to express our gratitude for the pictures toward Annamaria Goldstein, who lives in the USA and in Columbia.
 

    

הרבני המופלא ומופלג בתורה וביראה שמו נודע בשערים

המפורסם ומהולל בהשבחות איש ירא אלקים מרבים

הנצחה? ב?ע?? ה??יש? בש?? ברו??

ובנעימה

פ"נ

בדרכי היראה קרוב לארבעים שנה הגביר כקשת?

מהו' ר' שלמה ליב ווייס זצ"ל

שר גדול היית בין אחיך

לעניים ודלים פתחת דלתי בתיך

מה טובו ביו אוהליך בית ועד לחכמים ימי חייך

הטובות שעשית לעמיך יבואו לקראתיך

יופ שכרך בא כי הלך לפניך צדקיך

היית עומד בפרץ לעדתיך בתוקף חכמתיך

ועמדת לנס משפחתיך וצאצאיך כ?מתיך

דבר טוב צמדת באחיך א??דיפ באמת?תיך

הה עטרת ראשינו עזבת לאנחות בניך ובנותיך

בוכים בלב נשבר אחריך

בא תלכו בדרך ד' היה תמיד אלינו דבריך

יקרים היו דבריך להחזיק שומרי הדת

שרית עם אנשים ותוכל כלם כאחת

ראש ופטאון עלית לנהל עם ד' בנחת

אין פרץ ואין צוחה יהי ברחבותינו

לא ישמע עוד קול שבר בחצותינו

וננחם אחריך קול מבשר בשמעינו

ביום זיין לחדש טבת

עלתה נשמתו הטהורה לשמימה ונספה ונקבר

בבכי ובאבל גדול בערב ש"ק

למחרתו ח' לחדש טבת

בשנת תרנ"א לפק

תנצבה

ושם אמו הצדקת מרים
