    The shul in Troy was recently declared a landmark. It was built in 1909. In the early years Rabbi Lasker gave a passionate speech about the importance of having a mikve. Shortly afterwards, one was built.

    A very intriguing issue – who was Rabbi Lasker’s grandfather …

    Where is or was the closest Mikvah in or around Troy? I once read that the Malacha’s son had one in Albany, did that cover Troy as well.

    Did Rabbi Lasker write any seforim? Or were any sermons published? My great geandpatents attended his shul in Troy in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
