    I was just looking for something on the internet and decided to see if I can get any information about my maternal grandfather. He was nifter when I was nine and I have never visited his grave as in those years children were not permitted and I’ve been in Israel since 1961. I have a sister in Monsey to whom I will send this page.
    Thank you so much for this page. I will send it promptly to my grandchildren and my sister’s greatgrandchildren too.

    Regarding Rabbi Alexander Levine A”H- he came with his wife Minnie (Menucha) from Kovno around 1912-1913. His wife died in her mid thirties probably around 1925-1926. He lived to 1952.

    Just found this site. First time i’m seeing a picture of my great grandfather’s tomb. Being a kohen, i’ve never been inside the cemetery. My cousin and I are the only two named after him, as far as I know.
