Rabbi Yehuda Eliezer Anixter

September 11th, 2014 · No Comments

Rav,  Beth Medrash Hachodosh, Chicago
​​d. 24 Tammuz 1914 (5674)
​Rav Anixter was born in 1829 in Panemune, Lithuania and studied in Kalvariya. After his marriage to the daughter of Rav Henoch Weinstein (Dayan – Judge of Kalvariya) he served as the Rabbi of Anikst. In c.1869 he emigrated to England and shortly thereafter to the United States and settled in New York City. The Rav unsuccessfully tried his hand at business but eventually (1878) accepted a Rabbinate position in Chicago at the Beth Medrash Hachodosh. It is in all likelihood that he was the first ordained Orthodox rabbi in Chicago of Eastern European decent. In 1888, he took a position in Rochester, NY at Congregation B’nei Aviezer only to return to Chicago in 1891 where he resumed his previous position. Among his seforim (books) is Chidushei Avi with beautiful approbations. He died at age 82.
