    ת’ר’פ’ט לפ”ק

    פה נטמן
    איש זקן ושבע ימים
    מו”ה חיים נחמו
    בו הרב הצדיק יהושע הכהן ז”ל
    צדיק היה בדרכיו וחסיד בכל מעשיו
    כל ימיו עסק בתורה ובתפילה
    אומרים עליו שהיה נסתר
    עלה למרום ביום אחרון של פסח
    שנת תרפ”ח
    ושב(ר) חיים לכל חי נשמתו תהי צרורה
    בצרור החיים

    (Chiam Nachman Cohen)

    Very interesting…!

    Now we see some connection of Rav Alperstein and Rav Cohen – both were his teachers.

    He’s buried in the Alperstein family plot, which seemed odd at first.

    R Alperstein was in RIETS/YU maybe R Cohen as well and Smithline was a YU Graduate? speculating

    dr smithline also had connections with the chofetz chaim—he printed a poster from the chofetz chaim in 1931 about taharas hamishpacha–its in our archives
