    My great grandfather was Rabbi Ishaya Mayer Hurwitz who was born in 1863 and died in 1919. He was first buried at Waldheim but then the family moved his body to Israel to be buried at Mount Olives with his family.

    My gandfather, Jacob Hirsch was one of the brothers of Mayer Hirsch. Since my father< Aaron passed away 21 years ago, he took his history with him. I live in the By Area and would love to know any history or information that anyone may have.
    Thank you so Much,
    Ruth Hirsch Josa

    The following Rosh Hashana greeting for 5702 (late 1941) was printed by my great-grandfather Moshe Soled of Jersey City in honor of his nephew Rabbi Soled’s installation.
    https://photos.app.goo.gl/ RfaHxsZZYr7DZkZh2

    The wording in this greeting, in addition to the help of a few other people, helped to identify additional people in the photo mentioned above. Apparently, in addition to Rabbi Soled’s relatives, there were many rabbanim present who had been either on the hanhalla of the Radin yeshiva or had been talmidim there – Rabbi Soled learned in Radin for many years.

    In the center of the dais (behind the challah): Rav Mendel Zaks zt”l – SIL of the Chofetz Chaim – Rosh Yeshiva at Radin in Europe and in the USA – בוחן at RIETS – he, like Rabbi Soled, had been able to come to the USA in 1941 via Kobe, Japan.

    To the right of Rabbi Zaks in the picture is Rabbi Soled.

    The rabbi with the trimmed beard to Rabbi Soled’s right is Rabbi Mordechai Landynski – his father was Rav Moshe Landynski zt”l, Rosh Yeshiva in Radin for many years – after arriving in the USA, R. Mordechai was involved in the Vaad HaHatzala in addition to being a rav in Brooklyn and serving as a rosh yeshiva at the Chofetz Chaim yeshiva in NY (I believe CC/Rav Zaks and not CC/Rav Leibowitz).

    To the right of Rabbi Landynski is Rabbi Chaim Yitzchak Poupko who learned in Radin and eventually became the menahel of Yeshivas Toras Chaim elementary school in East New York (a predeccesor of South Shore).

    It was initially hard to identify Rav Mendel Zaks since his face is turned but I received a positive confirmation of his identity via a descendant of his.

    If someone needs a guide to Lithuanian kevarim, I have been to many kevarim in Lithuania, Latvia, and Belarus, and I also have contact info of someone in Belarus who can arrange a tour, or just help you find kevarim.
    you can reach me at yossavvy58@gmail.com

    my great grandfather was Rabbi Chaim Mechel Greenberg. He bought a section of this cemetery and the area is known as the Greenberg Lodge. My father, Mishel Greenberg z”tl passed away 2 months ago. He was named after Chaim Mechel. You can find more information on him by googling his name. He was instrumental in starting a yeshiva in Hevron and helping communites in Tiveriya and tzfat. He also established a synagogue on 34th west 119st in new york.
