    TRANSLATION

    Rabbi Zilberstein – Gravestone

    The famous genius Rabbi, the oldest Rabbi and president of the Rabbis,
    Rabbi Asher Zilberstein, ABD”K (=Av Beit Din of Kehilat) Los Angeles, son of the genius Rabbi R’ Israel Aaron Z”L (= Zichrono Levracha= may his memory be blessed), ABD”K Mezeritch.

    Line No 1 (Hebrew letter Alef): There are two parts, which practically mean the same – Our light came down
    Line No 2 (Hebrew letter Shin): The light of cleverness came down, great activities ended
    Line No 3 (Hebrew letter Reish): With his ways and activities he brought a lot of people to avoid from iniquities
    Line No 4 (Hebrew letter Zain): Gained and caused others to gain. With cleverness he trained his pupils
    Line No 5 (Hebrew letter Yod): He established Yeshivas, run them and nourished them with bravery
    Line No 6 (Hebrew letter Lamed): He studied and taught. He acted with loyalty and honesty.
    Line No 7 (Hebrew letter Bet): His home – a place for the clever people, a shelter for those who failed
    Line No 8 (Hebrew letter Reish): He was the first among great people who did for the public
    Line No 9 (Hebrew letter Shin): Improvement of the Holy Land was his main goal
    Line No 10 (Hebrew letter Tet): His taking care of its being built and getting strong
    Line No 11 (Hebrew letter Yod): He acted in any good thing for the Torah
    Line No 12 (Hebrew letter Yod): His activities for the Torah and its honour will be remembered forever
    Line No 13 (Hebrew letter Nun): His name will be remembered and mentioned in public

    He served as a Rabbi approximately 48 years (The letters are not very readable here, I hope it is indeed 48 years)

    He was a descendant of the MAHARSHA, the Zadik Rabbi R’ Aaron the Great from Karlin ZZ”L (Zecher Zadik Levracha= may the memory of the Zadik will be blessed) and the tenth generation in a dynasty of great Rabbis.

    He passed away on 14 Shvat 5733 (Hebrew date)

    An abbreviation for: May his soul rest in peace

    65 years. His longest tenure was in L.A.

  • 9 moshy rosen // May 19, 2009 at 5:31 pm

    He was a very big talmud chochom and he was a loved and reaveard rabbi.

  • 10 Pearl Rottenberg Taylor // Oct 7, 2009 at 8:15 pm

    He was Rosh Yeshiva at the Los Angeles Jewish Academy, an elementary school yeshiva he founded along with my Father, Rav Yihuda Dov Halevi Rottenberg, Z”L…

  • 11 Lonnie Cohn Capon // May 28, 2011 at 5:25 pm

    I grew up in Boyle Heights and attended his
    Temple, and the Talmud Torah. His sermons were all in Yiddish, and I could not understand them, since we were Orthodox but from Germany.
    Females could not study Rashi and Gemorrah, though I wanted to.

    I have a digital photo of Rebbetzin Chana Ruchel Zilbershtein’s matzeva . If I can read the date correctly she died in Winnipeg on the 12th of Tamuz, 5688 (June 30, 1928). Anyone wanting a photo of the matzeva can contact me at uy9p1@yahoo.com.

    יחוסו הקרלינאית של הרב אשר זילבערשטיין :
    רבי אהרן הגדול מקארלין
    רבי אשר הגדול מסטאלין
    בתו הרבנית פעריל נישאה בזיוו”ש אל הר”ר ישראל מאוסטראה נכד המהדו”ב והמהרש”א ומהר”מ פאדווא
    בנם הר”ר צבי
    הר”ר אשר
    הר”ר ישראל אהרן אבד”ק מעזיריטש גדול (פלך קיוב)
    הר”ר אשר דנן היה בן של הר”ר ישראל אהרן אב”ד מעזיריטש

    כל זה מפורש בספר דברי אהרן (הויזמן, ירושלים, תשב”ך), דף רמ”ז, אלא שלא הביא ששם המשפחה היה זילבערשטיין. ולא הביא אלא עד רבי ישראל אהרן ולא בנו הר”ר אשר.

    I currently live in East Los Angeles, a Latino-Jewish writer who is doing community work restoring the Jewish community and educating people about the history. Most recently i have been writing in cooperation with the Breed Street Shul.

    Can anyone tell me what the Rav’s tradition was? Chassidish, Litvak? I’m interested in finding out what the tone and Nusach was. Do anyone remember what type of siddur might have been used?

    I also have access to a great deal of historic liturgical text and to many cantors, and we are hoping to record and present samples of what the sounds and tones of the Breed Street Shul would have been like.

    Any information would be appreciated: kosherchorizo@yahoo.com
