    Rav Peimer is buried next to Mendel Beilus. Does anyone know if there is a link between them?

    Rabbi Peimer was a Rav in Slutzk (his father was Reb Mayer’ke also a Rav and Bar Plugte of the Rydba”z). During WWI he lived in Barnowitz and Warsaw then in 1925 he came to the US he served as the Rabbi of Beth El in Boro Park.

    I sent a picture of him to Baruch for posting.

    My family name is Barnowitz, one of the towns that Rabbi Peimer lived in. Does anyone have any history on this town which I believe was in Germany?

    This is the famous ‘yossele slutzker’ of whom it is said that father’s warned their children a long time ago?

    My exhusband Joseph Peimer, the grandson of Rav Yosef died many years ago, but for his children, I’m adding to our family tree and am looking for family connections.
