    Was reported in the Yiddish Newspapers that a group has just been formed to renovate the OHEL inside as it has been neglected for many years!

    The Rabbi of the Wall Street Synagogue (Meyer) has a brother (Moshe). Did the Radawitzer has any other grandchildren?

  • 9 YD Miller // Oct 20, 2009 at 4:28 pm

    No, Unfortunately his only son had these two sons who never married

  • 10 YD Miller // Oct 21, 2009 at 10:52 am

    Some good photos of the Tzion and its surroundings, including the tumbstones of his Rebbetzin and Son.

  • 14 asher // Aug 30, 2011 at 3:27 pm

    Mo, I see what you mean – perhaps it suppose to read as the following;
    ראדאוויטצער
    רעבעצין
    הרבנית שפרינצא ע”ה
    האגער
    כ”ה ניסן תשכ”א

    בת אדמו”ר הרה”צ

  • 20 Ilanith // Jul 28, 2013 at 3:15 pm

    Does anyone know who was the mother of Reb Yisroel? In other words, the great-grandmother of Reb Moshe and Rabbi Meir Hager?

  • 21 M.kennedy // Aug 4, 2013 at 5:28 am

    Ilanith

    you mean who was the wife of reb moishe radvitzer the autor of the vydaber moishe alfasi in his book writes that Reb moishe divorced her after 25 years before leaving to eretz yisroel but he does not write who she was may i ask what is your intrest

  • 22 Ilanith // Mar 18, 2014 at 9:48 pm

    Just found your post, so sorry. Rebbe R. Moishe radvitzer was my great great grandfather. After writing this, I did hear that he had been divorced. I would still like to find out more about who she was and where she came from. Which book is vydaber moishe alfasi?

  • 23 M.kennedy // Mar 19, 2014 at 10:47 am

    Ms ilanit

    how are you related veydaber moishe is the book of his discourse on the weekly parsha i have read somewhere that after his divorce a letter from local rabbis was isued against his divorce from his wife

  • 24 Ilanith // Mar 20, 2014 at 7:49 am

    I didn’t know he wrote Vaydaber Moishe I thought he only wrote vayikach Moshe, his daughter Tzirel was my great grandmother Thank you so much for the information.

  • 25 M.kennedy // Mar 20, 2014 at 9:35 am

    Ms Ilanit

    my mistake he only wrote vayikach Moshe by the way who was your G.G mother married to also did The Rabbi of the Wall Street Synagogue Rav meyer hagar have any siblings

  • 26 Ilanith // Mar 21, 2014 at 9:49 am

    Rav Meyer zatzal had one brother who continues the traditions of the shule. Are you familiar with my family? I am trying to get more information about my great grandfather. His name was Reb Avraham Tzvi, I understand that he was a tzaddik, as they had added the name “malach” to his name when he got sick. Unfortunately, he was niftar shortly afterwards. I do not know his last name, but I was told that he was a descendent of Reb Levi Yitzchok of Berdichev. Are you related to my family?

  • 27 YD Miller // Mar 21, 2014 at 1:11 pm

    Ilanith,

    Avraham Tzvi’s wife Tzirel was a daughter of R’ Moshe Hager, Thier kids adopted the name Hager.

    One son was Professor Dr. Yoseph Hager who lived in Israel, a letter of his to Moses Bloch can be seen here:
    http://www.archive.org/stream/chaimbloch00reel02#page/n1005/mode/1up
    He writes a little about his family, how they were 3 children, 2 sons and one daughter.

    Are you his daughter?

  • 28 Ilanith // Mar 21, 2014 at 5:57 pm

    Prof. Yoseph Alter Hager was my grandfather. He was a son to Tzirel. He had one brother (Itzik) and one sister (Roza), they both made it to America and are buried in Beth David. My father is the older son, Avraham, named for his grandfather, Avraham Tzvi.

    Thank you so much for the letter. I will print it out and read it. Does anyone know more about Reb Avraham Tzvi? They lived in Tzfat, and although Tzirel’s kever is intact, we can not find Reb Avraham Tzvi’s. We know approximately where it is, although it appears that the markings are not imprinted on it anymore.

    Ms Ilanit

    two years ago i had a long talk with reb meyer about his family what is the name of the new rov of wall street

  • 30 Ilanith // Mar 30, 2014 at 9:41 pm

    M. Kennedy

    I am not a local at the synagogue, but I checked it up online, and see that Reb Meyer continues to be noted as the Rabbi of the shule.

  • 31 Ilanith // Jun 9, 2014 at 10:29 pm

    M. Kennedy

    Apparently Reb Moshe, the brother of Reb Meyer, is continuing with the responsibilities of the shule.

  • 32 Grand Rebbe // Oct 27, 2014 at 5:02 pm

    Was at the Rebba today and noticed your post. You should also point out that Reb Meyer doesn’t have a tombstone either.
