    I’m pretty sure that this is my uncle Wolf Levy who lived with his family on our block in Brooklyn in the 30s thru 40s. He was ordained but to my knowledge did not have a permanent congregation.
    He had two sons (one Rabbi Zalman Levy in N.J.) and 3 daughters

    I believe that this is my Great Grandfather. Simon, that would make you my cousin. My grandfather was Simon Levy and Zalman was his brother.

    Sefer of the Rav named HaDeah V’Hadibur:

    Based on what is written there, the name of the FIL of Rabbi Levy was R’ Aaron Samson Haskel, I guess that is how you are related, any idea about where the Haskel fmaily lived in Europe?
