    Rabbi Benjamin was in Lynn and then took over for his father in Fall River. Rabbi Benjamin is the father of Rabbi Yakov of Monsey and founder of NK. The Talmud HaMeforad is not only on perek beis it is on the entire meshecta .. I have a full set. My father is a tamid of Rabbi Bejamin L. and Rabbi Avaraham appointed my grandfather as SU”B in Fall River

    I also have a full set thanks partially to Boruch A and Virtual Judaica.You can see that he was a great talmid chochom and lamdan. It’s not just an anthology. Is there anything else besides these booklets on Masechta Brochos?

    Does anyone know whether the bricks were added later or not. Can’t see the back of it, say, is this a mini Ohel or simply a wall of bricks? Never saw anything like this before.

    reb yaakov of monsey was sent to torah vaadas as a young boy > his son is Pinny Lipshitz editor of the yated.

    There were other LIpshitz in Fall River too, including my mothers father Chaim Eliyahu Lipshitz, ( not a relative) Shimon Pepper

    In Vilnius (Vilna) this past year I purchased at a used bookstore an old dry brittle paged volume (1886 or earlier) of Mishnayos seder nezikim, which has a Book Stamp of Rabbi Avraham Lipshitz of Fall River, Massachusetts! Was Rabbi Avaham Lipshitz born in Lita? How did this book end up in Vilna?

    Richard,

    Yes, his father Yaakov Lipschitz lived in Kovno, where he was the personnal secretary of Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Spector of Kovno.
