However, his refusal to work on shabbos made holding a job extremely difficult forcing him to find new employment every Sunday. Eventually he found a Sexton/ Hebrew Teacher opportunity which allowed him to save up enough money for him to reunite his family in New York City.  Unfortunately , due to the untimely passing of his wife and the outbreak of World War One this never happened.  Among his children, Rav Meir Chodosh went on to become the famed Mashgiach of the Chevron Yeshiva.
