Yahrzeit Info: 14 Adar 5675, Levi bar Natan *There is a chance that Sophie was actually Sophie Zimmermann, as well, and therefore she was Koppel’s sister, rather than Levy being Koppel’s brother. However, Koppel was the brother of either Levy or Sophie, and so until further information is provided, I will assume that Koppel and Levy were brothers.
