Bio Information:
Born in Luknik, Lithuania, Rav Olshwang, studied under Rav Eliezer Gordon and his (future) brother-in-law Rav Shimon Shkop at Telshe. He was later ordained by the Rogotchover Goan, Rav Yosef Rosen, and would go on to rabbinate on three continents. First in Vitebsk, Belarus, and upon arrival on these shores at Congregation Mishna U’Gmoro in Chicago and thereafter as Mashgiach Ruchani, Telsher Yeshiva in Cleveland. He eventually settled in Bnei Brak. Sadly, he left no descendants.
