    Correct me if i am wrong, reading his headstone tells me that he was a Shochet not a Rov. Is says, he was Oisek Bimleches hakodesh while dedicating time to learn too.

    What does Shin Vav ” Bais stand for?

    Its an acronym for “Shochet U’Bodek”

    I found him listed in the board of Ezras Torah as Rev. Binyamin Antel New Haven, it was not uncommon that A Shochet officiated at weddings etc. in the absence of an official rabbi or so.

    I was told that “Rev” usually refers to a Shochet, not a Rov – is that true? look up Rev Judah barit, buried in bayside – would you say he wasn’t a Rov but a shochet?
    On the flip side – Rev Joseph Selig Weissman, also a Baysider was a major rav.
    Perhaps a Shochet was always called rev, while a rav was sometimes called rev as well.

    Back to us, being listed as Rev. Only confirms that he was a shochet, leave alone that his title Shu”v says so.

    My question is, was Rev Judah Barit also a shochet or a rav? I cannot confirm but right next to Barit lies Rev Israel Jaffe (I can look up my pics tomorrow)

    Rev / Rabbi, back then it was all the same thing. In addition 9 times out of ten the Rabbi of the congregation especially outside of New York City was a one stop shop. He delivered sermons, officiated at wedding and funerals, shoichet, mohel, and was the general halachic authority.

    Rev. often refers to shammos

    it might be intersting to note the way REV is spelled with an “A”
    Rav. Feivel Koblentz.
