An ancient family name that gave rise to many scholars, bankers and rabbis.
"No ancient people have had a stranger history than the Jews... The history of no ancient people should be so valuable, if we could only recover it and understand it... Stranger still, the ancient religion of the Jews survives, when all the religions of every ancient race of the pre-Christian world have disappeared... Again it is strange that the living religions of the world all build on religious ideas derived from the Jews... The great matter is not 'What happened?' but 'Why did it happen?' Why does Judaism live?" - T.R. Glover.
Also written as Jaffa, Yaffa, Joffe, Yaffe, Joffo, Ioffe, Effa, Yappo, Yufa, the meaning of this name is "beautiful". The family originates around the XVI century[63.10]. Over these centuries, it produced many distinguished representatives. Among these, the Itzig family of bankers from Prussia is worth a mention, since it descends directly from the Jaffe family and in turn, it relates to Mendelssohn, von Richthofen, Dirichlet and other quite celebrated names. This practice is described by the Jewish Encylopaedia as:
"... many Jaffes have taken the names of Itzig, Meier, Margolies, Schlesinger, Rosenthal, Wallerstein, etc. , while many distant relatives, really of other houses, have preferred to take the popular name of Jaffe."[63.10].
As a intersting note, the Jaffe family was linked directly and indirectly by means of marriages to a branch of the family of the Red Baron (See von Richthofen).
