    His mother (Esther Lifsha) was a daughter of Rav Gedalia Schorr. Her brother was R’ Avrohom Schorr, father of Rav Gedalia (R”Y Torah Vodas & BME) and Rav Yakov (Nesivos Olam/Malochim).

    Behind him is his aunt Mrs. Miriam Seifer. She passed away at the age of 99/100. Unfortunately, she never had children. She helped to raise him and his sister after their mother passed away in 1924/25.

    Rav Yaakov Schorr is the grandfather of Chazzan Yanky Lemmer.

    Any relation to the late Rabbi Felder in Boropark (18th Avenue)?

    Yes. I’m not sure how. I’ll try to look into it.

    BP – heard from a mishpocho of this Rav that they are possible distant relatives, but not close ones. Details unknown.

    Rav Felder was a big posek in Toronto. His son, Rav Aaron Felder, is a posek and a Rav in Philadelphia. One other son is a Rav in Toronto at the shul where Rav Felder was Rav and another lives in Baltimore.

    He was my mother’s first cousin. His father and my grandmother were brother and sister. To the best of my knowledge, he is not related, at least not closely, to the Felders in Boro Park and is not related to Simchah Felder, the NY Politician.

    I did not know Gedalia well, but all of my contacts with him were that he was a brilliant man. About 10 years ago, I was at a semninar conducted by a reform Rabbi from Toronto and I mentioned that I had relatives in Toronto. He said, “Names, Give me names.” I of course said “Gedalia Felder,” to which he responded “the greatest Jewish mind of the 20th Century.”

    I wonder if his Shul (SSCM) or his family established a Tzedakah(Charity) fund to help the needy. I am his nephew and am currently in need of a non radioactive pair of tefillin (I have a Genetic Disease called Gaucher’s Disease type 1) and could use some money to pay off debts. I would like to get a job but I am weak and am being medicated by NYS Supreme Court Order.
