    This is the kever of my beloved paternal grandfather, Z”L. I was only 5 when he died, but I remember him and have a beautiful letter he sent to me. Thank you for posting this!

    Harav Chaim Yechezkel Moseson Z”l was my uncle. He came from Lodz Poland, learned in the Yeshiva in Lomza Poland, received smicha from Harav Yechial Michal Epstien, author of the Oruch Hashulchon. He was a Rav in the Bronx, was Hebrew principal in a few Yeshivos, R’ Chaim Berlin, Torah V’daas, Tifferes Yerushalayim and in R’ Yisroel Salanter. Being a prominent Rav, he was approached many times by food vendors to give them a Hechsher, but he always refused. His goal was the Rabbonos and chinuch Bnei Yisroel.
    There was a frum yiddish weekly called Der Yiddishe Licht which was funded by the Chazan Yossele Rosenblatt. Uncle Chaim Z”L would write a weekly article. The topic was usually on Shmiras Shabbos. He would always speak out for Shmiras Shabbos and keeping Mitzvos , even though he was bound to receive flak. It was Rabbonim Like Uncle Chaim Z”L who put his efforts to infuse in the Jewish child the love and commitment to Torah and Mitzvos that helped lay the foundation for Torah true Orthodox Jewry in America. Y’hi Zichro Boruch.

    The wife of Rabbi Mozesohn was the daughter of Rabbi Moshe Ryshpan, who’s mother Mrs. Sheva Perel Ryshpan was a dscendant of the Hasidic dynesties of Pschedburz and Radyshitz.

    I think she wasn’t the wife of this Rabbi Mozeson, but of his brother R’ Mordechai Mozeson.

    my great grandmother Frumit Baila Freilach was the daughter of Batsheva Perel Ryshpan.
    She was the mother of Malka Chana (Freilach) Moseson who was married to Mordechai Moseson.
    I remember my father saying that his mother (malka Chana) was first cousin to her sister in law who was married to R’ Chaim Yechezkel. This makes them both descendents of Batsheva Perel Ryshpan.

    Here is an announcement from the Tageblatt (Friday October 6, 1922 p.11) that lists Rav Moseson z”l as Rosh Hayeshiva of Torah Vodaas

    He had six sons and one daughter. He lost his wife at an early age and re-married.
    His daughter’s daughter is married to Rabbi Nachum Sauer, the Rosh Kollel of YOLA and, I think, the Lakewood Kollel in L.A.

    I also think he was instrumental in hiring Reb Shraga Feivel Mendelowitz ztz”l.

    Rosh Haqohol: Rabbi Moseson had 5 sons and 2 daughters (my father, aunts and uncles) Both daughters married Rabbis; 4 of his sons became Rabbis and my father, z’l, went into Jewish Communal service.

    My grandfather wrote articles for Yiddishe Licht. I found a bound book with many issues of the paper between 1923 and 1924 in my parents house.

    Wiki says that it began in 1923 as a weekly, and then became a daily, until it closed in 1927.

    Does anyone know how or where to find copies of the issues from those years ?

    Yehoshua, the Agudah archives has a few boxes of the Yiddishe Licht. I think they may also have it on microfilm. If you come across any articles by Rabbi Noach Garfinkel, please let me know. I know he published at least one article in the Yiddishe Licht.
