The Rav a prominent member of the Agudas Harabonim, president of the Board of Orthodox Rabbis of New York, and a delegate to the American Jewish Congress wrote many seforim among them Chazyonos Avroham. Born in Zakroczym, Poland and ordained by Rav Yonah Zlotnick of Plock, Poland he served as a rabbi in his native town before immigrating to America in 1906. Interestingly, Rav Gallant considered the mass immigration to America to be a temporary sojourn and he anticipated that Jews would eventually return to Eastern Europe. Many of his sermons criticize Reform Judaism and deviations by immigrants from Orthodoxy.
