    Biography Mordecai's father, Eliezer (1704-1747), originally from Breslau came to Berlin, Germany at about 1730. He was one of the 120 householders who at that time were permitted to reside in Berlin, Germany, engage in commerce or own stores. At the same time they were continuously exploited and various taxes were imposed on them.

    Eliezer was prosperous already in his early years became active in Jewish communal affairs as an administrator of the Berlin, Germany Congregation, heading its Talmud Torah for many years. He also promoted the printing of Salomo Hanau's work: Zohar ha-Tevah (1733).

    He died only 42 years old leaving a widow, Malka, who remarried.

    5 sons and 3 daughters.

    Dr Nathan says that although he write in 1921 that the death date was 27 Dec 1746, he has since found out that it was 27 Dec 1747. A gravestone in Berlin, Germany is mentioned in Dnaiel's chronicle, also that his signature was in the Jewish community register in Berlin, Germany starting in 1723 (or 1743).
    He had possibly come from Bohemia. In the Schwerin magistrates' book he is mentioned as a Berlin, Germany protected Jew.

    Dr. Nathan insists on the name being spelled Elieser not Eliezer but adds that he called himself Lazarus Nehemias Jaffé  [1, 2
