Mendel is a large Impact crater that lies on the far side of the Moon. It is located in the southern fringe of the huge skirt of ejecta that surrounds the Mare Orientale impact basin. To the south-southwest of Mendel is Lippmann, an even larger crater.
This is a worn and eroded crater formation, with several small craters along the rim. The younger Mendel J is attached to the southeastern edge and shares part of the rim. The small Mendel B lies across the rim to the northeast. A pair of small craters also cross the western rim. Parts of the inner wall of Mendel display worn, terrace-like features that have become rounded. The interior floor of Mendel displays desposits and depressions that may have been formed by ejecta from the Mare Orientale formation.
This crater lies on the western margin of the Mendel-Rydberg Basin, a 630 km wide impact basin of Nectarian age. The basin is named after Mendel and the smaller Rydberg to the east of Mendel.

Mendel (Hungarian family)
The Jewish Hungarian family of Mendel is the name of a prominent Hungarian family which flourished in the latter half of the 15th century and in the first half of the sixteenth in Ofen ( Buda). Members of three generations of it are known; namely, Jacob, Israel, and Isaac Mendel, who held the office of "Princeps Judæorum", "Supremus Judæorum," or "Præfectus Judæorum" between 1482 and 1539. This office, which seems to have existed only during that period, was created by King Matthias Corvinus in order to give the Jews an accredited representative at court, who at the same time should be responsible for the payment of their taxes. The "Præfectus Judæorum" was empowered to impose fines and other penalties on the Jews. As an official of the crown he was exempted from wearing the Jews' hat.
Mendel can be both a surname and given name. Mendel is a Yiddish varian and affectionate form of the Hebrew name Menachem and means "comforter". Sometimes, it is also used as an affectionate form of Immanuel.
