    Rabbi Rabinowitz was known as the “Gaon of Brownsville” On his Matzeive is written that he left lots of Chidushai Torah in writings, did this anytime saw light?

    What about children? Today is his Yahrtziet

    “Rabbi Rabinowitz was survived by one son Dr Harris M and two daughters Mrs Bessie Colman and Mrs JS Minkin the wife of Rabbi Minkin”

    Who was rabbi Minkin?

    Based on what Eisensdatdt writes in the above mentioned קול בכיי he first came in 1888 to NYC where he served as Dayan under Chief Rabbi RJJ, the in 1892 he went over to Brownsville

    Rabbi Minkin mentioned above as the SIL of Rabbi Rabinowitz, was Jacob S. Minkin who was a conservative Rabbi in Rochester and author of many books.
