    Is there a published yichus from the Pnei Yeshua anywhere? I have a friend who has a mesorah that he’s a descendant and is trying to figure out how.

    Rabbi Landau came to America to collect money for his Yeshivah. He was nifter during being in America & he was Burreid not far from the Rabbi of Shinav.
    One of Rabbi Landau descendants is Rabbi Luzer Weiss who heads the Kosher law enforcement agency of New York.
    Rabbi Weiss & his family printed a sefer yichus from the Pnei Yeshua & the entire Mishpoche..

    The famous genealogist Vekstien wrote about him in Hamodia (Shevat 5768), that he was a distinguished chusid of the Divrei Chayim of Sanz. His linage to Kalev is that his mother Baila was the the daughter of Reb Yecheskel Taub son of Reb Eizikel Kalever.

    He was a cousin to the Vielepoler family but not a descendant and the guy who made the matzeiva (understanding that his family wasn’t present at his passing) knowing his relationship to the family thought that he was indeed a descendant which was a mistake.

    One of his descendants is the Vizhnitzer Chusid and Rav of the Belzer 99 Shtibel in LondonReb Eliezer Dovid Friedman author of Mepi Seforim V’sofrim.
