    For more information on my grandfather, Rabbi Mnachem HaKohen, see the Wikipedia article, “Mnachem Risikoff.”

    Also, if anyone knew him personally, or was a member of his congregation, and has information or stories you could share with me that are not already included in the Wikipedia article, I would be very grateful if you would contact me at resnicoff@aol.com.
