Date of Death: Sun. November 7, 1943 - Cheshvan 19 5704


Bio Information:
Rav Chodosh arrived on these shores sometime prior to World War I with the plans of eventual bring over the rest of his family.  The Rav, had a brother and two sisters in New York who initially supported him while he looked for work. However, his refusal to work on shabbos made holding a job extremely difficult forcing him to find new employment every Sunday. Eventually he found a Sexton/ Hebrew Teacher opportunity which allowed him to save up enough money for him to reunite his family in New York City.  Unfortunately , due to the untimely passing of his wife and the outbreak of World War One this never happened.  Among his children, Rav Meir Chodosh went on to become the famed Mashgiach of the Chevron Yeshiva.
