    Where is the second wife of the Chofetz Chayim?

    She is buried one row in front of her son Rabbi Aaron Kagen. Both are in the Mount Judah Cemetery in Queens.

    It was my first time at this site, thanks for putting it together. I personally greatly appreciate it, due to the fact that I believe in the power of a Tzadik to help us have our prayers answered. Knowing where they’re located is great.
    As I was browsing through the names, I thought that you might want to consider breaking down where they’re all bueried by city. For example, I live in Monsey. Instead of me having to fish through 600 names and find which ones are in Monsey, it would be easier if I could click on a tab “Monsey” and then 30 or so names were listed. Then I could go visit. It just makes things a little more organized. Unless you’ve done that already and I didn’t see it. Anyways, whether you use this suggestion or not, thanks again for putting it together. Kol Tuv!

    It would be convenient if the list were sortable by last name.

  • 11 Gershon // May 17, 2013 at 12:11 am

    Are you talking about Rabbi Avigdor who wrote in his seforim that he left in Europe a lot of seforim buried ? As a grandson, do you know if any search for them was ever made?

  • 12 meir avigdor // Sep 4, 2013 at 10:57 am

    Rabbi Yaakov Avigdor was my Granddfather
    and was the chief Rabbi of Mexico City.

    he was niftar and buried in Mexico City.

    my younger brother YAAKOV MOSHE-
    is named after both of his grandfathers…

    most of those books were burnt or destroyed.
    my grandfather recollected a new large set
    of Judaica Books and after he passed away-
    they turned them into a permanent Jewish
    library at the main synagogue in Mexico City
    in his honor..

  • 14 tattale // Sep 8, 2013 at 11:43 am

    Meir Avigdor: why don’t you post a picture of your zeide’s tzion in Mexico? I realized that there is a posting of a Rabbi Simcha Binim Schatz from Mexico. was he there the same time as your zeide?

  • 15 meir avigdor // Sep 10, 2013 at 9:33 am

    thank you for your inquiry- we have a few
    grainy pictures of our Zaidy’s Kever, but
    digital photography was not invented yet!

    there are a few pictures in my Father book-
    FROM PRISON TO PULPIT. there are a few
    copies left at Eichler’s of Flatbush.

    If you happen to visit Mexico City- the main
    Frum Synagogue is called ACAPULCO 70-

    which is the street address- go upstairs and you
    can gain access to the library dedicated to
    my grandfather’s memory. he tried to reprint
    2 or 3 sets of his seforim in Mexico City and
    they were a few wealthy Jewish businessman
    who sponsored him. For Example:
    Mr Shimson Feldman A’H’

    I believe my Grandfather’s tenure in Mexico
    City was from 1952 thru 1963. I was 3 years
    old when he was Niftar on 18 day of ADAR II-

    Meir Avigdor: So your zeide was serving in Mexico City at the same time as rabbi Simcha Binim Schatz who passed away in 1959. Why don’t you scan a photo of your zeidy’s tzion and post it in this site?

  • 17 Mrs. Z. // Sep 30, 2013 at 9:12 pm

    This is a wonderful web site–thank you for all your hard work. We were instructed to go see a Tzaddik at Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn, Section #3, Grave 195. However, we don’t know the name of the Tzaddik. Would you happen to know who he is?
    Thank you.

    Mrs. Z
    you are probably referring to Rabbi Gedalya Yosef Bernstein

  • 20 Kapooreh Hindel // Oct 31, 2016 at 7:39 pm

    What isn’t Harav Gedalye Yosef Bernstein listed anymore?

  • 21 Steve Richter // Sep 13, 2018 at 12:42 pm

    Does anyone have any biographical information about Rabbi Chaim Ben Zion Notelovich z’l? I found some information about him in the sefer Toldos Anshei Shem.

  • 22 Moshe Escott // Sep 17, 2018 at 3:25 pm


    re: Rav Notelevitz

    In addition to Toldos Anshei Shem (c.1950)

    He also had biographical listings at:

    Ohalei Shem (1912) (very brief)


    Doros HaAcharonim (c.1940) (mistakenly lists him as a rav in St. Louis as opposed to Louisville)

    Of all the above, it seems that Toldos Anshei Shem has the most complete info.

    Also see Orthodox Judaism in America (1996) where one page of his listing can be previewed here:

    By searching for נאטעלעוויץ and נאטעלאוויץ on HebrewBooks and Otzar HaChochma you will find many mentions of him. This includes articles with chidushim that he wrote in various Torah journals.
    Also of note is one listing in Otzar haChochma where there’s a glowing letter of recommendation for him by his rebbe, Rav Chaim Ozer zt”l.

    He passed away on Monday of Parshas VaYechi (approx Jan. 8, 1968 / 7th of Teves, 5728)
    As seen from an obituary in HaPardes from February 1968

    By searching Notelevitz on Google you can see that he was known in English as Benjamin Notelevitz and that his last place of residence was in Long Beach, NY but I haven’t seen where he is buried.
