    my paternal grandfather rabbi avraham bukspan was as well the head of the chevra shas in phily. after coming to eretz yisroel from chelm (yes, that city) he, as a bochur was a melamed in the chai olam yeshiva in yerushalayim. Rabbi Simcha Zisel Brody (late rosh yeshiva of chevron) told me that he was a talmid in his class. There of course is so much more to say.

    I wuld appreciate YD Miller getting in touch with me, if he knew or has information about Rabbi Avraham Bukspan
