p.187 161 Chaskiel Naumberg, Rabbi of the town of Lódz . Chaskiel Naumberg was installed as Rabbi of Lódz on 1 October 1832, presenting evidence, that from 1819 to 1823 he performed his duties as Assistant and Substitute Rabbi of Lutomiersk, and that from December 1823 to September 1832 performed the duties of Vice Rabbi of the Town of Konstantynow. The life of Rabbi Naumberg of Lódz was not a bed of roses. It was therefore, that he had to wield a heavy hand and perform the duties of his administration with severity. Czyto therefore, that he was a follower of the Kock Tzadik (which did not completely suit the position) - sufficiently, that again and again others intrigued against him in order to oust him from his Rabbi position. In 1834 a complaint was submitted regarding consumption revenue (Nachman Litwer) charging others that wanted control in the matter of the kosher meat tax. (At one time the proceeds were used primarily to cover the Rabbi's salary and for other religious purposes, but for some time it had been entered in the books as being for general administration). As a result of this, a committee of the province recommended in a letter dated 24 March 1835 the immediate removal of Naumberg from his office. The struggle against the Lódz Rabbi lasted a few months. In December 1835 even the district authorities recommended terminating on the spot the employment of Rabbi Naumberg of Lódz and the local slaughterer, Hersz Oszerowicz. Finally, there was apparently an agreement between quarreling parties, as N. Litwer withdrew his objection and furthermore interceded with Naumberg's Lódz community Supervisor Bóznicz as well as with H. Igielberg, sub lessee of the kosher tax. As a result of these efforts, the Province Commission withdrew its previous decision and restored Naumberg into the office of the rabbinate in 1836. While the echoes of this first quarrel were still not extinct, there was a new explosion swary and significant. In 1838 biorat assumption from it, that had just concluded a six-summer (six-year?) contract, included with Rabbi Naumberg's a complaint lodged by Supervisor Bóznicz m. Lódz, since "in general the residents of the old monasteries in the Town of Lódz" oppose the Rabbi, upon the hands of the district's authorities with a simultaneous request that the Rabbi be removed from his office in the town of Lódz. In the same lawsuit to be reimbursed as well to the Gubernja authorities. The sword of Damocles hung again upon the Rabbi, and then it became dismissed all together. Undoubtedly the deed was settled with a quiet understanding, because behold after this, the meat Supervisor Bóznicz withdrew his complaint and the matter was dropped. After this, the Rabbi was threatened with removal from his office for a third time in 1842 in connection with the prohibition against the second-hand kosher beef which appeared in Lódz, causing harm to the treasury, triggering an investigation regarding the tax on kosher meat. The authorities of the province, being above all very vigilant, suspected - not knowing after all how the beef was substituted - the Lódz Rabbi of collaboration in the announcement of the prohibition, and once again decided to dismiss him from his position. In vain the Lódz Rabbi explained, that by design the prohibition had no complicity. In vain, demanded the authorities, that he cancel the prohibition in the presence of the 10 most respected members of the Jewish community. The government order "drawn with the conviction that Rabbi Naumberg was in collusion in the matter of the prohibition," categorically recommended the removal of the Rabbi and the provisional appointment to the post of the trusted Jacob Tobjas Tymcz. In response to the actions against Rabbi Naumberg, intense efforts were made to the authorities in favor of Naumberg Lipman Weichselfisz, the sub lessees of the kosher tax proceeds and the Lódz Supervisor Bóznicz. This intervention became at last crowned with success. A letter that was drawn on May 11, 1842 restored Naumberg to the post of Rabbi by Order of the Government. Yet, before the end of the affair, the hands of the highest authority were influenced, this were in the hands of the Government commissioner for Internal and Religious Affairs received a complaint against Naumberg, full of unrighteous and prejudicial insults, dated 6 May 1842, signed through by a certain Abram Kirszbaum. The author's complaint argued in his concluding summary that "this rabbi is not fit to fulfill his duties of truly considerable proportions, because our community requires a leader of greater aptitude and righteousness" and also asked to carry out an investigation against Naumberg on the grounds of Lódz. The Gubernja authorities, giving little thought to it letters, immediately recommended that the town authorities begin an investigation, but when they approached Lódz to carry out their order, they found ... "that no one named Abram Kirszbaum lived in Lódz, ever lived in Lódz, or could be found in Lódz"! Naturally, the investigation was terminated, whoever hid himself under the fictitious name Kirszbaum, was never uncovered. Probably from then on, the hostility against the Rabbi receded at last, after those failed attempts, after his victory there was no further disturbance of the calm of his office. The complaint offended everyone and from then on not much about the Rabbi was even heard. Rabbi Naumberg received for his services a starting yearly salary of 215 silver rubles, equivalent to nearly 1300 Polish zloty, later on it was raised to 280 rubles. On the day of 29 July 1856 at 6 P.M. in the evening Rabbi Naumberg passed away, left behind were his widow Reyzl and 5 orphaned children: Fiszel, Judah, Ajdl, Rivka, and Mojsze. Arch[ive] of Old Deeds of the T[own] of Lódz Cat[alogue] No. 5447, 11, 5438. F. Friedman: History of the Jews of Lódz, pp. 272-274 (P.Z. Gliksman) Rabbi Naumberg descended from a very old rabbinical family from Germany. The work "Bejt Meir" lists 10 generations of the ancestors of Chaskiel Naumberg's family, whose members held rabbinical office in Gemany. Chaskiel's father, Yehuda (Juda) Naumberg was the rabbi of the town of Rawicz in the land of Poznan. Chaskiel's mother, Frajdl, was the only daughter of the most erudite Jew of his time, Meir Pozner, who starting in 1781 was the rabbi of 3 communities: Altschottland, Weinberg, and Langfuhr near Gdansk, but subsequently of Gdansk only. Meir Pozner was the author of the work "Bejt Meir", containing responsa on subjects from "Even Haezer" and "Orech Haim". Meir Pozner's only son, Haim, later became Rabbi of Altschottland and died childless. Therefore, Meir Pozner set high hopes on his daughter and son-in-law, Juda Naumberg. Juda Naumberg had but 4 sons. Since in those times in Germany, particularly among the young, the Mendelssohnian enlightenment was spreading, many pious German rabbis, wanting to protect their sons from these influences, arranged to marry them to daughters of pious houses of Poland in order that through these means they would settle in a country where the enlightenment had not yet reached. Thus the kind np. Rabbi Hirsz Levin of Berlin, Rabbi Meszulam Zalman Hakohen of Furth, author of "Bigdei K'huna", are indeed did this as well as Juda Naumberg, who sought to find wives in Poland for his 4 sons. Chaskiel Naumberg married Esther, daughter of Pinhas Levine of Lutomiersk and settled in the same location as his in-laws. (The second son of Juda N., Salomon, settled in Kalisz after his wedding, the third - Bendet in Blaszki, the fourth - Haim in Lask.) In Lutomiersk the young Chaskiel N. devoted himself enthusiastically to the study of Talmud, that grew wespòl of Hanoh Henih, his brother-in-law, later renowned Rabbi of Aleksandrow, as well as Shalom Hirsch Hakohen, later Rabbi of Zgiersk. At the time, Chaskiel N. declared his firm loyalty to Rabbi Bunem of Przysucha, but subsequently became a Kock hasid. At the time, a prior Rabbi of Lódz, Mendel Wolf Jerozolimski, left Lódz, in his place Hillel Hakohen, son of Pinhas Hakohen Rabbi of Lutomiersk (see No. 130), was appointed to the post. After some time, in turn Hillel Hakohen left Lódz as well and behold, in the community of Lódz followers of the Kock Tzadik who then had the lead, decided to appoint to the vacant post Chaskiel Naumberg. Chaskiel N. accepted this invitation and after that held the office of Rabbi of Lódz for 25 years. Chaskiel N. performed the duties of his administration with great severity. He resided on Wolborskiej near the synagogue. He owned an enormous library of rabbinical works among which najchetniej przesiadywal (preferring to hang out?). Being a prominent talmudist, many original inscribed works on exegesis and commentary of law on the Talmud, amid different works on the subject of Massehty Ketubot, but his work remained unpublished [Footnote: Portions of manuscripts remaining after him may be found in possession of P.Z. Gliksman of Lódz.] Rabbi Chaskiel N. left numerous descendants. The following children survived his first wife Esther, who died early (see No. 26). 1) A son, Henih, who died at a young age (see No. 37) was the son-in-law of the rabbi of the town of Blaszki, Meszulam Zysi. 2) Judel, who resided in Lódz. Judel N. was, like his father, a Kock hasid, and starting in 1858 he was also assistant to the Lódz rabbi ("Moreh Hora'a") at a yearly salary of 100 rubles. However, Judel's principal occupation was cotton trading and retailing of lottery tickets. He was also a landlord. He died at too young an age (see No. 1725). His wife Rivka outlived him for 3-4 years (see No. 2352). 3) Josef Efraim Fiszel excelled at everything [over his] three brothers. Efraim became a follower of the Tzadik of Izbica Mordehai Josef, who being known as the most outstanding disciple of the Tzadik of Kock, all of a sudden abandoned Kock in 1840, breaking away from the Kock dynasty, membership in which was considered highly honorific. A long tense fierce conflict spread among the Kock hasidim of Izbica. Efraim Josef who was a mohel, practicing this occupation solely as an avocation, not seeking to profit from it, found himself na rzezactwie (unlicensed for?) sz'hita, prevented as well from blowing the shofar during the High Holidays at the main synagogue. Efraim Fiszel was known as the first Lódz trader to introduce the local market wigonje (owce peruwjanskie or wool of Peruvian sheep?), importing it from Germany. Above all, his most significant business acquisitions were in real estate. Efraim Fiszel died in 1889 (see No. 2533). His wife, Mirjam Leah, daughter of the learned and pious hasid from Piotrkow, Hirsz David Weinberg, grandson of the renowned Gaon Eleazar, author of the work "Szemen Rokeah", which outlived the man for many years and today still attracts interest to him as well. Efraim Fiszel and Mirjam Leah had a few children. The firstborn son, Meir Naumberg, was a prominent scholar, hasid and kabbalist. Initially, he traded on manufactured goods from Zwolinia. However a fire that broke out in his compound in the year 1904 ruined him completely, so that he had to seek another source of income within his reach and intellectual ability. Since he had many unedited manuscripts, he started traveling around towns and shtetls selling manuscripts and subscriptions to his work. In this way, he distributed at times collections of works, namely: Beth Meir Hadash, Ketz Haplaot, Tel Talpiyot, Likutei Omer, Maamar Habrit. The most capable of all sons of Efraim Josef was Mojzesz Mordehaj. Already in his youth, as a schoolboy in Lódz in the Beth Hamidrash founded by Chaskiel Zaltzman, he attracted attention upon himself for his unusual ability. As he matured, Mojzesz Mordehaj started immersing himself further and further in kabbalistic literature from orthodox circles. Mojzesz Mordehaj developed lung disease and left for treatment abroad. He died at a young age in Gratz, in Skyrji (Austria?). Upon his death he left a little boy, his only son, named Hirsz David. Hirsz David, born in 1876, was brought up in Mszczonowie in his grandfather's home (his mother's father) Bunem Aizenberg and became famous already at a young age thanks to his unusual talent (iluj). Having reached maturity, he rejected any vestiges of his father and set about studying the literature of the enlightenment and general secular instruction, though at times he settled as the renowned Jewish writer (H.D. Nomberg). 4) Frajdl, died at a young age (see No. 59) After the death of Esther, Chaskiel Naumberg married Reyzl, the daughter of Rabbi Isahar, granddaughter of the renowned Maggid of Kozienitzki, with whom he also had a few children, a son and 3 daughters. The son of Chaskiel and Reyzl, Israel Mojzesz, resided in Warszawa where he died in 1924.
