    Was rav in Liverpool and New Castle, UK. Then came to the US and served as Rav in Houston, TX and Utica, NY.

    In 1897 he returned to Europe and served as rav in the cities of Nowi-Dwohr and Vashilkov

    In or around early 1921 he came again and was appointed as rav of the Shomrei Hadas shul on 41’st St. in Boro Park.

    He authored ‘Regesh Amoreinu’, ‘Yerushalayim Hatzrufo’ and more.

    Am not sure if its appropriate for me to write this here but am fascinated to know if either of the 2 people who have posted here [Aaron Feder/ person posting as Filey ave] know anything more about R. Gershon Meyer Boyarsky, whose matsevah is pictured here. He was my great grandfather. I knew from my late father that he was buried on Staten Island but it is unbelievable to see this picture and thank you so much to those responsible for posting.
