I am a distant cousin to the late senator. I can confirm that this side of the family is descended from Yaakov Emden, aka the Yavitz.

Another web site, featuring the same photos, says that the Rebbe informed him of this link. That’s incorrect, and obviously silly. The family is aware of its genealogy.

I have also been told that Jacob Javits was named after Rav Yaakov Emden (Yaavetz) who I was told was his ancestor.

Can anyone confirm this?
