    Who said that he was a Rav?

    Good question. Nevertheless, it seems that he was a super erliche yid and we are talking here early 1900’s. There’s a Rav Mendel Kastel down in FL, but they are not related to him.

    Farshlufen – on the top of the tombstone it says “P.N. (po nikbar) HaRabani HaMuflag, Y.E. (yrei Elokim), nichbad l’Makirav…..” = a flowery way of saying “Here lies the distinguished rabbi, G-d fearing, respected by those who knew him…..”. So I guess at least those who created the matzeiva considered him a rav.
