    It’s not Rabbi Sholom Rikin, but Rivkin. After he left Seattle he was Rav for many years in St. Louis. He passed away about a year ago. His father Reb Moshe Dover was the author of אשכבתא דרבי. His father-in-law was Reb Berish Zukerman of Buffalo http://kevarim.com/rabbi-dov-berisch-zuckerman/.

    Rabbi Londinsky שי’ לאוי”ט resides in Lakewood.

    There is some info about him in the fascinating book about R’ Dov Cohen “וילכו שניהם יחדיו”, who was from Seattle.
