    Rabbi Rosen’s grandson, David Rosen, passed away about 15 years ago in New Haven. He was married to my grandfather’s older sister. Both my grandfather and his older sister are in their mid-90s now, may they be well…

    Perhaps David Rosen was named after Rabbi Rosen’s father?

    Rav Rosen was my great-grandfather. I was searching for him on Google and found this page. He was my mother’s mother’s father.

    My father, born in 1917, had the same name as the Rav, Avraham Abba Rosen. I am trying to find out if the Rav was his great uncle, and he was named for him. Does anyone know about the names of the Rav’s siblings and wife, or anything else that could help me?
