Honoring King David’s Genealogy and Heritage on Behalf of the Jewish People and His Descendants
Are You a Jewish Descendant of King David?
Jewish descent from the Royal House of David can be traced through oral tradition, rabbinic sources, historical data and/or extensive research. Most families claim descent from King David through Rashi. Several families claim descent “ben akhar ben”(father to son) in a direct line, most notably the Dayan, Shealtiel and Charlap/Don Yechia, families. If your family has an oral tradition of Davidic descent or you can provide genealogical evidence, we would like to welcome you to join the Davidic Dynasty.
The Inaugural Reunion of the Davidic Dynasty was held at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York. Susan Roth, CEO and Founder, honored three descendants of King David at the royal dinner: District Attorney, Robert Morgenthau; World renowned Rebbitzen Esther Jungreis, and distinguished Rabbi Sholom Twersky.
Susan Roth, CEO and Founder of the Davidic Dynasty, has been passionate about Jewish genealogy as it relates to King David for many years. She is a direct descendent of the Ba’al Shem Tov through his grandson and can also attest that Rashi, who is a known descendent of King David, was her 36th great grandfather
You’ve never seen a work of art like this. Beautifully illustrated by an Israeli artist who combines his intense love of the Psalms with an intense love of Jerusalem. The result is the perfect keepsake or gift. This initial project to honor the work of King David, offers three limited sizes.
There have been many great rabbis and rabbinical houses that trace their ancestry back to David Hamelech. This group of great scholars and leaders include: Hillel, Rabban Gamliel, Rabbi Yehuda Hanasi, Yochanan Hasandler, Rashi, the Rambam and Yosef Karo as well as the more contemporary gedolim like the Baal Shem Tov, the Breslevor Rebbe and the first Lubavicher Rebbe, Shneur Zalman of Liadi, to name but a few.
