Bio Information:
Originally from Kovno, Rav Miller immigrated in the year 1911 under the name Charnofsky. He changed it back to Miller in 1921—at the same time that he assumed the position of Rav of the Beth Israel shul in Borough Park. His career is replete with leading his fellow Jews in numerous communities, in his activism at Agudas Harabanim, and in his Torah greatness.
