Old Jewish Area – Troyes of Rashi, France

Troyes 1040: Rashi was, “supposedly”, born

This date, which is given as February 22, 1040, is mentioned in many recent printed books, including Wikipedia, although I haven’t yet found the source for this claim.

We do not know of any other date, which should contradict this one, it would still be beneficial, to have the source, and evaluate it, for its reliability.

Do you know of the source, please drop us a line.
