Family Tale

The Israel-Cherezli family traces its history back to 1807 when the head of the family, Rabbi Isaac Israel, son of Eliahou, and his two young children, Eliahou and Hayim-Moshe, migrated to Jerusalem from Serres (Sherez), a town north-east of Thesaloniki. In Jerusalem, he was nicknamed Israel-"Cherezli" (i.e. Israel from Sherez) in order to distinguish him from other Israel families. Rabbi Hayim-Moshe Israel-Cherezli (1803-1863) remained in Jerusalem and most of his descendants still live in Israel. Rabbi Eliahou Israel-Cherezli (1800-1866) was appointed Chief Rabbi of Cairo in 1846. His descendants remained in Egypt until the dispersion of the Egyptian Jewish community after 1948 cont..
