    BBZ,
    I dont know if you are rightm but it is mentioned in that writing that he was a descendant of eight generations of Rabbonim.

    BBZ,
    He was the son of Rav Yitzchak Kellman.

    Tzvi Yehuda was in fact the son of Yitchok Kelman as BBZ said. And yes he was in fact an 8th generation Rav, and his grandson today is generation #10

    Michael and Ari, it sounds that you are related to the two Rabbis Kelman mentioned here, I find a Rabbi Yehuda Kelman in Tarnigrad, Poland in 1880, would that be Rabbi Moshe Kelman’s (Yitzchak’s father) father?

    Hi Moshe Kelman was the father of Harav Yitzchok Kelman, who was the father of Harav Tzi Yehuda Kelman zatzal. . Reb Zvi Yehuda had smicha from Reb Meir Arik z”l Reb Zvi Yehuda had three sons all rabbis, the eldest (and still living) is in New York. His great grandsons are the 11th generation rabbonim.

    According to “The Many Rooms of this House…” by Roberto Perin, Tzvi Yehuda Kelman came to Toronto in 1928, and had a long association with B’nai Israel Husyatiner Kloiz.
