    What is the reason of the wording “Lochem Milchamos Hashem” on the Matzieve?

    I just noticed that Lochem Milchamos Hashem is also written on Rabbi Rafael Reuvain Grozovsky matzeiva. Probably because back then America is not what it is today.

    His father was Reb Yosef Leib Bloch, and grandfather was Reb Eliezer Telzer (Gordon).

    Telshe (Telz) in Lithuania had a girls division called Yavneh.

    Rabbi Revel tried getting him and Rabbi Katz to join the faculty at Yeshiva College (as he has spent a zeman in Telz and knew them well). In the end, they declined as they wanted more independence to continue the Telzer Derech
