New database of German refugee Rabbis in America lists both father and son






I am honored to announce the website listing of German Refugee Rabbis to the United States posted by the Ludwig Maximillian University of Munich.
My father, Rabbi Dr. William Weinberg, is listed, as so am I, possibly the only Rabbi on the list born after the Shoah!


This was just announced:
