    הוא כנראה דודו של ר’ יקותיאל דרשוביץ מבני ברק, מההכשר של שארית ישראל לשעבר.

    ר’ יקותיאל מבני ברק, הוא בן של ר’ יצחק. על ר’ יצחק דרשוביץ, היה כתבה ביתד נאמן במוסף שבת קודש, לפני כמה שבועות.

    I assume he is the father of Yitzchok Dershowitz who wrote that historical novel on R Aron Kotler. Also, uncle of Alan Dershowitz, esq. from Harvard.

    Also the father of Alan Dershowitz from Lakewood, brother of Reb Yitzchak. But as Reb Alan from Lakewood likes to say about himself, “Ich bin der frumer, nisht der krumer”
