  1. “Sent his son Yeshaya and son-in-law Aryeh Leib (later to be the Shaagas Aryeh) to investigate Shabsai Tzvi”. This sentance is incorrect. The Taz was niftar in the year 1667 whereas the Shaagas Aryeh was only born in 1695.Although he had a stepson by the name Aryeh Leib who was sent to investigate Shabsai Tzvi.
