re: Binyamin Eliezer Ungar-Auerbach

I just saw you message to me on from Nov. so I'll respond now. Basically, we don't know exactly how the Shenos Chaim is a descendant of the Remah, so we don't know if it's ben acher ben. I've spoken to many people about this--bottom line is that nobody knows. Regarding Binyamin Eliezer Ungar-Auerbach, apparently Ungar-Auerbach was our original last name and R' Reuven Chaim the first (author of Shenos Chaim) changed his last name to Klein because when he studied in the Chasam Sofer's Yeshiva in Pressburg, he boarded by a childless couple named Klein, so he took their last name in appreciation.

Managers of Binyanim Eliezer Eliezer Unger-Auerbach,

Hi there. I would like to find out information about Binyamin Eliezer Unger Orbach. My husband is Tzvi Dov klein, Grandson of Moshe Ezriel Klein, Great gandson of Tzvi Dov Klein, great great grandson of Reuven Chaim Klein, who is the son of Binyomin Eliezer.

I have two questions. Is my husband Ben achar ben of the Remah? and also, why was Binyamin Elizer's name Ungar-Orbach and then the name switched ot Klein? thank you so much.

I am contacting you about this profile:
