Rabbi Nachum Streisand

נחום ב"ר

Rav, Congregation Beth Yisroel, San Francisco, CA

Date of Death: Sun. January 12, 1879 - Teves 17 5639

Rav Streisand a talmid (student) and great-grandson of Rav Akiva Eger was born in a suburb of Poznan (Posen), Poland in 1819. Prior to his arrival in the United State in 1869, the Rav served as maggid mesharim (a preacher of uprightness) of Fardon, a small town outside of Posen. He also published several of his Rebbe’s Halachic (Jewish law) rulings. The Rav’s first position in the United States was at Congregation Shaarei Tzedek in New York City. In 1872, prior to leaving for the West Coast, he published a safer (book)titled Le-lamed le-Toim Binah slamming the Reform movements and the customs they were introducing such as the use of an organ during prayers.
It is believed that the Rav was ordained by Rav Akiva Eger
