    Rabbi Gorovitz was born Aaron Soloveichik (coincidentally, a first cousin twice removed to the younger R. Joseph Dov Soloveichik who became a prominent figure both locally and nationally), on March 15, 1870, in Svir, Lithuania.

    I am the great granddaughter of Rabbi Aaron Gorovitz who had seven daughters and one son. After serving as rabbi in Woonsocket, he spent most of his life as rabbi at Sons of Abraham in Roxbury, Mass. He lived in Roxbury and raised his family there.

    Did Aaron Gorovitz have two brothers? Possibly given different last names (as he did) when arriving in Ellis Island? If anyone has any information, please contact me at adam -at-
