Bio Information:
Rav Sakolski served as rabbi, reader, and president of the Allen Street Bais Hamedrash. After his passing there was a disputed between two of the leading rabbonim on the Lower East Side, Rav Yosef Moshe Aaronsohn and  Rav Avroham Yosef Ash over congregational and  kashrus (kosher certification) related issues. Rav Ash eventually split from the Allen Street Bais Hamedrash and founded the Bais Hamedrash HaGadol of Norfolk Street.
