Let The Lion Roar

Over the years I have collected much information about the life of Rabbi Aryeh Leib of Metz. It is now my hope, to share with the reader an accurate account of much of the information that has thus far been given to myth.

It is also a primary goal to collect from the readers any genealogical data in the hope of creating a grand "Shagas Aryeh Family Tree". Many families have the tradition of being Shagas Aryeh descendants but aren't sure how. With the collaboration of the readership we can resolve many of these long standing questions.

Please let me know if you have any question about the Shagas Aryeh, I would be glad to share my knowledge.

Aryeh Leib.

i like to know if the Shagath Arie was the grand son of rabbi Yoel Sirkish (the Bach) or not (because his father name is Asher and not Shmuel). Thank you very much,
