    Cincinnati Oh, is buried Rabbi Yisachar Dov Illowi, chief rabbi of the confederacy. In Pittsburgh Pa, is burried Rabbi Shimon Zivitz who wrote a perush on Yerushalmi. These tzadikim should be included.

  • 7 Miller // Jan 26, 2009 at 11:18 pm

    Did you ever get a hold of the burial place of Rabbi Shimon Zivitz in Pittsburgh?

  • 8 eluzer schlesinger // Apr 2, 2009 at 6:14 am

    My great grandfather Reb yoel zvi Landau is burried in Rodepf sholom cemetery in ridgewood, I lost the map where the officer had marked his kever, unfortunatly I didn’t memorize the plot # He died chof tes tishrei tov reish samech daled burried in the Shiniver chelka.

  • 9 Miller // Apr 2, 2009 at 1:36 pm

    Eluzer,
    Was your GG-Father a Rabbi, where?

  • 10 curios // Jul 5, 2009 at 5:32 pm

    This is a great site! Keep up the good work. Why don’t you get pictures of gedolim in Eretz Yisroel also?

  • 11 Bamsel A // Jul 6, 2009 at 3:02 pm

    There are scores of books available which provide information on kivrei tzadikim in EY. They are available by cemetery, city, or guided tour. If there is a particular kever you are looking for contact me via email and I will try to locate it.

    I am considering a similar website for Rabbanim who lived in America and were buried in EY. However logistically it’s a long way off.
    Thank you,

  • 12 curios // Jul 6, 2009 at 3:38 pm

    Another question: I know that Reb Meir Michel – the “המאיר לעולם” has a son Reb Shmuel buried in Perth Amboy NJ, would you be able to get ahold of the picture? He was Rav there at some point. Thanks alot.

  • 13 Bamsel A // Jul 6, 2009 at 3:47 pm

    Anything is possible, do you know the name of the cemetery?

  • 14 curios // Jul 6, 2009 at 4:23 pm

    I don’t think there is more than one cemetery in PA, but I don’t know for sure.

  • 20 Gedalyah Jeremias // Jul 13, 2009 at 7:50 pm

    Rav Avrroham Abba Rosen was first a rav in Rochester.
    Rav Lynn was a rav in New London & Chesterfield after he was in Westerly.
    Rav Israelite wrote a sefer called T’udas Yisroel .

  • 21 j // Jul 22, 2009 at 12:07 pm

  • 22 avremele // Jul 22, 2009 at 5:09 pm

    You took down Bernard Madelbaum. If he was conservative, how come he’s buried along with orthodox people?

  • 26 YD Miller // Jan 11, 2010 at 7:20 pm

    It apears that Rabbi Mandelbaum himself was Orthodox, he only served Conservative judiasm and JTS

    it would be very useful if we could somehow sort by bais olam. meaning if I looked up one gadol and found him in a certain cemetary, i would like to know who else is buried there that I might want to go and be mispallel by them. Thank you and keep up the great work!

  • 34 chaim tzvi goldenberg // Apr 15, 2010 at 11:20 am

    anyone know where the kever of rav Baruch Litvin ztl is? he fought and won a supreme court case for keepping machitza in shul. He was from mt. Clemens Michigan. Many Gedolim held very highly of his accomplishments.

  • 35 Admin // Apr 15, 2010 at 2:31 pm

    Admin: why the change of the “recent comments”

  • 38 M Morgen // May 26, 2010 at 9:55 pm

    Great idea… You should create searches by last name not first names. in most cases first names are no known.

    2nd You MUST add a list by location so hat if someone is in the queens area for one kvitel he can now see all other tzadikim that are in the same general area

  • 39 Cheskel // May 27, 2010 at 2:54 pm

    Again for the third time (my second), there is a Categories list, located on the right side, just above the Recent Comments, where one could search by City, Cemetery or Title.

    There was a big Rav in NYC Rabbi Yosef Eliyahu Fried the Rav of the Eldridge St. Synagogue and author 2 Seforim Ohel Yosef, Alimos Yosef, by the funeral of the Rav Hakolel, Rabbi Fried was among those who eulogized at the cemetery.

    Does anyone know where he might be buried?

  • 50 asher // Aug 17, 2010 at 8:50 pm

    Any idea what year he was niftar. Eldridge has a section in Bayside right next to where Rav Yudelovitch is buried.

  • 51 YD Miller // Aug 18, 2010 at 12:56 am

    He was Niftar May 8 1927

  • 52 Farshlufen // Aug 18, 2010 at 9:14 am

    I did check the Jowbr for his name, there is no one with this name and date of interment on their list.

  • 53 asher // Aug 18, 2010 at 10:55 am

    Rav Yudelovitch Served as Rav in Eldrige until his passing, 1930. Rav Binkowitz was Rav earlier, he died in 1907 – when exactly did Rabbi Fried serve as Rav there.

  • 54 Ben Bee Zee // Aug 18, 2010 at 11:34 am

    make a search in google books there’s a book about the Eldridge Street Shul and it says that he was the Sheina Yid of the shul he gave lectures and he was admired very much he had a seat on the western wall, it seems like he didn’t officially hold the rabbinical position of the shul

  • 55 asher // Aug 18, 2010 at 11:42 am

    I will keep it mind BL”N next time i visit Bayside. Although his name is not listed there.

  • 56 Farshlufen // Aug 18, 2010 at 12:20 pm

    BBZ, you meant to say on the eastern wall- כותל מזרח. Rav Fried himself in the preface to “Ohel Yosef” also dosen’t mention being Rav of the shul.

    Asher, which rav Binkowitz was rav in Eldridge?

    the name of the book on the Eldridge Shul is ”
    Landmark of the spirit – The Eldridge Street Synagogue”.

    He’s burid almost opposite from Harav Schochatowitz z”l.

  • 69 Vivian Koenigsberg Warshaw // Sep 3, 2010 at 5:49 pm

    Hello Asher:

    I am the granddaughter of Yisroel Koenigsberg, the niece of Benhamin
    Koenigsberg and the daughter of Isaac
    Koenigsberg. I have several pictures
    of my grandfather. The family was
    very well off (but far from rich) as my grandfather was a butcher (the family were shochets to the Sieniever
    Rebbe for many generations). My grandfather and Uncle Ben were lifelong supporters of the Rebbi. If you would like me to email you a picture of my grandfather, just let me know. My grandfather’s daughter, Anna Koenigsberg Bodek, is buried in the next row as is her husband Herschel Bodek.

  • 70 AG // Sep 19, 2010 at 12:36 pm

    I wonder if you can add an index by location.

  • 72 asher // Oct 11, 2010 at 9:08 pm

    Very interesting marker of person who was killed by (his?) animal while protecting his wife and kids.
    It’s hard to read the marker itself, below is a link and the copy on the stone.
    He’s buried surrounded by young kids… which don’t seem to be related to him (the small markers are limestone – very hard to read)

    פ”נ

    הקדוש הקריב לו
    זאב נטרף מבהמתו
    בן נ”ג שנים בהגיעו
    משה אביו אליו קראו
    נשמתו בגנזי מרומים
    הגן על האם והבנים
    זכרו לעד יהיה
    ר’ זאב וואלף ב”ר משה
    נפטר
    ביום י”ב אלול תרל”ט לפ”ק

    http://i949.photobucket.com/albums/ad339/aman51/price.jpg?t=1286845599

    He’s buried across Rev Yehuda barit and Yisroel Yaffe (gate 55)

  • 73 YD Miller // Oct 12, 2010 at 10:28 am

    Asher,

    While I am still not clear on the second line which seems rather like:
    זאב נברך מבהמתו
    It is certain that the words:
    הגן על האם והבנים
    Is not part of a story, but rather a continuation of paryer that:
    נשמתו בגנזי מרומים
    Should defend upon his wife -the mother and her kids.

    I am thinking that since his name is Zev the marker makes a poetic anology as if Hashem took him as a sacrafice (Korbon).
    הקדוש הקריב אליו
    His sacred he brought over to himself
    זאב נברך מבהמתו
    The “Wolf” was blessed out of his flock…

    He was 53 years old.

    Interesting regardless

  • 74 Ben Bee Zee // Oct 12, 2010 at 11:52 am

    I looked through your collection it has some interesting ones. Solomon I. Isaacs was the son in law of Rabbi Kurshidt which himself was a son in law of Gershom Mendes Seixas.

    A portrait and some other biographical points http://www.thejewishmuseum.org/onlinecollection/object_collection.php?objectid=4988

  • 75 asher // Oct 12, 2010 at 1:21 pm

    Miller, I second your opinion, I’m almost positive, it’s a ט (nitraf) not a ב (nivrach). Again, the marker is hard to read or snap a good pic but will IY”H check again next I visit. Keep in mind that 53 yo back then was not that young. Also, as i mentioned he’s buried amongst kids.

    On a side note: I visited Bayside Sunday (Rav Binkovitz yahrzeit) – many sections have been cleaned up beautifully and the (new) hired landscaper told me that within a year the entire thingie will be accessible like Acacia. A few Moseleums have been broken into, terribly vandalized, peeking into the thingie, i did not see any bones, strange.

  • 76 YD Miller // Oct 12, 2010 at 1:36 pm

    Asher,

    Thanks (hope its not a competition to Baruch (-:)

    I saw the Rev. Heyman Hacohen Bloch gravesrone in your collection, any more about him?

  • 77 asher // Oct 12, 2010 at 2:15 pm

    Not really. Rev Bloch is buried behind Rav Binkovitz, Eldtrige Street Section.

  • 78 asher // Oct 17, 2010 at 10:51 pm

    Behind Rav Pam z”l.
    I was totally shocked to discover a few broken markers right behind Rav Pam – is this something new or not.

  • 81 YD Miller // Oct 18, 2010 at 10:37 am

    I think he was a Rav somewhere in Upstate NY, perhaps in Ellenville

  • 82 YD Miller // Oct 18, 2010 at 10:50 am

    I found a Tchuvah from Rabbi Pffefer from NY directed to Rabbi Hirsch where he is titled as the Rav in Bies Aharon in Brooklyn NY in 1924
    http://www.hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=666&st=&pgnum=81&hilite=

    Later he is found as the owner and operator of two Kosher Halls one in NYC (Hotel Riverside Plaza) and one on Brooklyn (Gold Manor) together with his son Reb Nosson Tzvi.

    He was also the agent for a printing Co. in Satmar, Hungary ran by Mier Leib Hirsch, (maybe they were related) where Rabbi Hirsch printed the second edition of Shu”T Bies Av from Rabbi Yudelevitch.

    He had a daughter Miriam who married to Eliyahu Basch

  • 83 asher // Oct 31, 2010 at 6:37 pm

    There’s a whole section at the Beth David Cemetery in Elmont NY, behind the Novominsker Ohel where there are buried together many Rabonim and Gedolim who were members of the Agudas Anshe Mamod of the East Side (Rav Henkin is also buried among them). I wrote an article on “ivelt” with a lot of information about the organization and some of the Rabbis buried there. Most of the Rabbonim are still not yet posted on this site, http://ivelt.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=12542

    Ben Bee Zee, Why don’t you send them into Baruch?

    Can we get the kever of Reb Zalman Dov Rashgulin? He was a Rav in Staten Island.
    See his sefer here: http://www.hebrewbooks.org/2222

    Lopian: Does anyone know where Rav Elya Lopian’s parents are buried. His entire family came to America (when he was approx 9yo) while he refused to join them.

  • 95 YD Miller // Dec 26, 2010 at 7:58 pm

    Asher,

    What was his fathers name, where did he come from?

  • 96 asher // Dec 26, 2010 at 8:10 pm

    I believe Reb Yaacov. Not sure the spelling of his birthplace – something like גרייבא or גריבא in Poland.

  • 97 curios // Dec 27, 2010 at 1:05 am

    His father was Yaakv. He had a brother in America who has frum descendants. I think he spelled his name different, Lopin or something like that.

  • 98 asher // Jan 23, 2011 at 6:27 pm

    Thanks for the photos (hope this will be on the site soon)

  • 102 Ben Bee Zee // Jan 24, 2011 at 6:18 pm

    I’m not sure whether Harav Wein held an official position in the US. I know he wasn’t on one page with the Rav Hakolel…

    I recently posted almost 50 JPG files with images of American rabbanim that I snapped a couple of years ago from the 1909 and 1915 editions of אוצר התמונות by R. Benzion Eisenstadt, a”h.

    Some rabbanim appeared in both editions of the book.

    Many of these rabbanim already have listings on this web site.

  • 104 Ben Bee Zee // Mar 2, 2011 at 3:01 pm

    Moshe, Thank you very much

  • 106 Ben Bee Zee // Jul 28, 2011 at 1:32 pm

    The first orthodox rabbi in Culombus Ohio was named Rabbi Kalman Landau. The following is what I found on him.

    Kalman London died on the east side in the 20s. When he finished his tenure in Columbus, he went back to study Torah.

    He went to a Chevra on the east side which was a shomer Shabbos. They took only shomer Shabbos people in that society called the Adath B’nai Israel on East Broadway. And he simply went to that Chevra and he sat and studied Torah day and night. He ate very little but he studied Torah. One morning when they came in, they found him dead over a Gemorrah. And he is buried in their cemetery in the New York area…buried in the Adath B’nai Israel cemetery in New York.

    Kalman London was related to the Schottenstein family and this is what brought the Schottensteins very early to Columbus and Agudas Achim.

    One of his son in laws Reb Tuvia Aaronsohn who made the sefer Likutei Margolius past away in 1970. http://hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=41703&st=&pgnum=1&hilite=

    Does anyone have any idea as to what his background was and where the cemetery he’s supposedly buried is?

  • 107 Reb Elya // Oct 16, 2011 at 8:49 pm

  • 109 YD Miller // Oct 17, 2011 at 8:04 pm

    Reb Elya,

    Rebbe Tzvi Hirsch Kahana the Spinka Rebbe of LA was the son of Reb Mordechai Kahana son of Reb Nachman Kahana of Spinka SIL of the First Spinka Rebbe known as the Imrie Yosef.

    See Here:
    http://www.hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=7773&st=&pgnum=322

    He was still living in lA in 1983, would be interesting to find if/when he passed away and where he was buried.

    Nice find

  • 110 Reb Elya // Oct 17, 2011 at 11:31 pm

    Thanks for the info, and sorry for making you type on Chol Hamoed.

    Many American rabbanim listed on this site are pictured in a book from 1918 called “Four years of relief and war work by the Jews of America, 1914-1918″.

    Here’s a link of some pics snapped last summer.

    Correct. Monticello has 3 more cemeteries right next to each other (right behind the 17). I didn’t find any Rabbanim there.

  • 124 Lorrie // Jul 29, 2012 at 8:44 pm

    This is a tremendous service but last names in alphabetical order would be really helpful. Listings by individual cemeteries would also be beneficial–I realize this would be time consuming but much appreciated.
    Many thanks.

    I would be interested in knowing the history of the Strettener Rebbe who is buried in Floral Park Cemetery in Deans, NJ. My grandfather and my uncle are buried right outside his Ohel. According to the plaque on the wall of the Ohel he died in 1947. I was once told that there was some kind of Machlokes in the family and maybe there were 2 Rebbes at the same time but I’m not sure. The Strettener Rebbe that was niftar a week or so ago was buried in Beth David Cemetery in Elmont, NY and not in Floral Park. I thought that was interesting and was wondering if you knew anything about the Rebbe. I have pictures of the Ohel and the Matzava’s of both the Rebbe and the Rebbitzen.
