Biographical Notes:

The Rav a prolific writer, contributed many articles to the Hamaor Rabbinical Journal and was a big proponent of Kedushas Bais Haknesses (the sanctity of the synagogue) awareness. At the time of his passing the Rav had two children one Adi living in Munich, Germany and another son stuck behind the Iron Curtain with whom contact was lost. It is also a strong possibility that the Rav had a daughter.

Background Information (See picture below):
It should be noted that it was intended for the Rav to be reinterred in Eretz Yisroel, however, to date it is believed that the Rav is still buried at the Beth Israel Cemetery, both according to the Cemetery Management and the legendary Rabbi Pinchos Mandel thus a tombstone was never erected. Another point of note is that at the time of burial the Rav’s coffin was placed in a metal transport container. It was suggested by prominent Torah authorities that at this point it should be left that way. In the coming weeks, the Beth Israel Cemetery Management will be testing the grave to assure that the Rav is still indeed buried at Beth Israel.
