Welcome to the Rashba family web site.
According to the family legend, our family is connected to Rabbi Shlomo ben Adret(RaSHBA), the 13th century Rabbi of Barcelona, Spain. This legend is great source of family pride. The possibility that our common lineage may trace back to the RaSHBA, a leading Talmudic scholar in Jewish history, has brought together Rashba’s from different continents in a collaborative effort to trace our family tree. To date our efforts have identified a common forefather from 1720, Yakov Rashba in White Church (Biala Cirkva) Ukraine.
This site contains family stories, pictures, and documents unearthed from archives in Spain, Poland, and Ukraine.
There are articles from Barcelona and Kiev, Ukraine areas about Rashba and Adret family members from Spain, Russia, USA, Ukraine, Israel, and Turkey. This information is in Russian, English and Spanish languages.
About the Rashba family history project
The Rashba family history project was started long time ago by Jeffrey Rashba (USA, New Haven). He created first family tree and found Russian Rashba families including Timur Rashba. Then Timur got involved, found a lot of new members and developed our extensive family tree. Irene Kunina(Rashba) joined the active Rashba group a couple years ago. She conducted research in Kiev archives and reconnected all Russian and American Rashba families. Irene also visited Barcelona and collected all Aragon archive info about Adret family in 13th, 14 th and 15 th centuries. Mark Rashba from Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine collected a lot of data about the Rashba family from Ukraine.
Now it is a new stage, our own website. We hope that this new step will help us to reconnect the Rashba and Adret families after hundreds of years being apart in many countries.

Soy Irit Rashba(Kunina). Estoy visitando España para buscar información sobre la historia de mi familia. Mis familiares afirman que somos parientes del Rabbi Shlomo ben Adret (RaShbA).
Yo represento a la gran familia Rashba, con ramas en Rusia, Estados Unidos e Israel. Estoy investigando a la familia Adret cuando vivió en España y despues de salir de España. Estoy buscando personas que me puedan ayudar a encontrar esta información, libros u otros materiales que contengan esta información, incluyendo archivos españoles
Cualquier ayuda sera apreciada. Puedo pagar por esta informacion.
