    Rabbi Tzimon served as the Rav of BH Hagodol Ahavas Achim and the Agudas haKhilos of Syracuse.

    His Sefer Imrie Noam (NY 1917):

    His Brother Rabbi Tzvi Hirsch Tsimon (ציימאן) was a Rabbi in Chattanooga, Tennessee, he came from Volchov, Ruusia where he first served as Rabbi.

    R’ Tzimon was first Rabbi for a few years in Lowell, Massachusetts before he came to Syracuse (Where he held my current position…). It looks like he was a very strong and revered Rabbi.

    His father Reb Yozfa was a Rabbe in Russia his Sefer Tochachas Megila was printed in NY 1917 by one of his children. He himself went up to Israel I’m not sure if he returned or he died there.

    the sefer tochachas megulah was printed once in Yerushalayim by the mechaber R’ Yozfa, and second ny his son R’ Mattes in NY 1917. he writes thats his father printed this sefer while he was in Israel. so it seems that he returned to Russia.
    on a biography on R’ Yozfa’s daughter it says that he was an einikel of Tzadikei Cheronbyl.

    R’ Tzvi Hirsch, and his son R’ Nachum Zalman, are both buried in the cemetary right next to Ahavas Achim on Jamesville Avenue in Syracuse.

    yacov – you mentioned in your post on Nov. 15 that R’ Yosef Yuzpa’s Tocheches Megulah was first published in Yerushalayim. Do you know if there is a copy of that version extant? I was hoping that that version might have some additional information on R’ Yosef Yuzpa (e.g. his father, where he learned, smichos etc.) thanks.

  • 16 yacov // Jan 22, 2012 at 2:58 pm

    here is a link the the Yerushalyim edition:
    it doesn’t have any additional info on R’ Yuzfa.
