¶ 2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 Feistel, married to the daughter of Lemble Weyl (), was under protection from 1700 to 1743, and his son Meyer () from 1730 to 1743. Meyer had married Schönle, daughter of Lang Jossel () early in 1729. The marriage began under a dark cloud and quickly appeared to be on the brink of divorce. Shortly after the wedding, the couple began to argue about control over the dowry that Schönle brought into the marriage . From the Halachic point of view, this is a complex topic. The dowry is considered a wife’s tzon barzel (iron flock). In other words, the husband takes possession of the dowry and may benefit from its revenue, but he is responsible for any loss incurred in the dowry’s value.32 Between the lines, the father-in-law lang Jossel appeared unwilling to relinquish control over the assets, a situation that would grate most new husbands. After a great deal of discussions with and counselling by Jonas Gugenheimb (), Marum Dicker (), and Menke Bernheimb (), the issue was resolved amiably, and the marriage was saved.

Leib’s second son, Jonas, named after his grandfather, was married to Sara, daughter of Marum Weyl, Sandel’s son . They were unable to have children of their own but took a niece into their home . Jonas was under protection in Stühlingen between 1716 and 1743. He moved to Randegg and from there sold two houses in Stühlingen in 1749 and 1755 respectively.
