Hebrew term or phrase: כולל
המשך 2: I'm translating some old postcards written in Yiddish in the late 19th century. Salutations are all in Hebrew, being a long list of all the family members, each with plentiful epithets and many abbreviations. While I was able to unravel most of them, I do need help with the following please:
What does כולל mean in לנכדי החכם הכולל כמר שמחא? I couldn't find anything other than inclusive, which doesn't fit. Is it something like all-rounded perhaps?
