    I was quite little when my grandfather passed away. I do remember he had a shul at 403 Legion Street in Brooklyn.
    I believe he was a mentor for Rebbe Wolf Gruber who established a shul in Canarsie, Brooklyn named Temple Abraham.

    We are honored that you are recognizing my grandfather. From accounts from my late mother he was a caring and learned rebbe.

    Did you have a relative, Hyman, married to Ethel, who was an optometrist in Canarsie? If so, we are cousins. My father, Jack Pasternack was Hy’s cousin.

    Joyce and Rabbi Miller
    Thank you so very much for your replies.
    I am indeed Hy and Ethel’s nephew. My dad was Ted and my mom was Mildred. I am aware of the Pasternak name.
    Rabbi Miller, thank you for the photograph. I do have some memories of the soul. It was really nice to see the photograph. I thank you.
