According to the family legend, our family is connected to Rabbi Shlomo ben Adret(RaSHBA), the 13th century Rabbi of Barcelona, Spain. 

Here is the picture of the sinagogue in Barcelona where Rabbi served for about 50 years. Now it is a museum.  


According to Timur's grandfather Noy(historian)  in 17th century the Turkish embassy has arrived in Poland and it was accompanied by an interpretor Jude Rashba. 

In August 2016  we confirmed based on the info from american family that  Rashba family moved to Ukraine from Turkey. They worked as interpretors in Otoman Empire. That proved  our connection to Spanish Jews. 


We know that Adret family lived in Spain till the end of 15-th century.

The last city was Cervera where Adret family lived for about 200 years.

The Rashba Bible was written for grandson of Rashba Astruc ben Yitzhak ben Shlomo ibn  Adret who lived in Cervera.
