Rabbi Hirsch Zvi Ringel burial at Weißensee

Rabbi Hirsch Zvi Ringel burial at Weißensee

Here we have one more Ringel family member who was laid to rest at the Jüdische Friedhof in Weißensee. 

We first learned of Hirsch only recently. He was another sibling from the Ringel family from Rzeszow, Austria, who resettled in Berlin in the 1880s. He married Perl Jacobi and they produced eight children. 

So far, I've discovered no information about his religious career.

The inscription reads: Here rests my beloved husband / our kind-hearted father / grandfather and uncle / HIRSCH RINGEL

The grave is fully documented on Find a Grave by project volunteer Burkhard Steinike. The cemetery location is A5 Row 21 plot 51111

Finding headstones at Weißensee is notoriously difficult. Burkhard's photos help you locate the grave in the overgrowth. 

Hirsch was the brother of our direct ancestor Schija Ringel. So far, Schija's grave has not been found. He may have died in 1916, just ahead of his brother.
