    I think he lived in Bronsville or in East New York. I know someone who used to attend his weekly Shiur on Leil Shishi. He was also delivering then a Shiur in Mogen Avrohom of the Turisker Magid.

    There might have been an article in a Hamodia Magazine which might have mentioned Rav Esrog.

    Was he a talmid of the Ridvaz?

  • 12 Moshe Escott // Oct 9, 2013 at 12:35 pm

    This wouldn’t be surprising as his father taught in the yeshiva of the Ridvaz (ישיבת תורת ארץ ישראל) and his brother Dovid was also affiliated with the yeshiva according to these links:
