    The Rebbe was a direct descendant (Ben-acher-Ben) to tha Tzadik Rav Yaive of Ustroh.

    He was the SIL of Rebbe Mordecahi Twersky of Loyev-Chernobyl (hid BIL Rebbe Baruch Benzion is listed on this site).

    As per Hapardes in October 1950 after his passing, he left a son Nachum, and two daughters; Schiffra who was married to Yisroel Nesis of the Bronx and Sarah married to A. Ben-Hillel of the Bronx.

    It says that it is a small Ohel. What Ohel? In the backround I think I see an Ohel. Is that the Ohel of Rav Levi Yitzchak Greenwald ZT”L. I have been to his Ohel.

    Oh, it coud be a small Ohel.

    It’s a very small closed ohel (can’t get in), the “ohel” in the background is a garage across the street from the cemetery.
