    Rav Perr came to the states on August 20, 1920. He was born in Drogierzyn which is in near Grodno.

    He was married to Pearl Weinreb, daughter of Rabbi Yosef Weinreb, a Rav in Toronto, Canada.

    Rav Perr’s son, Rabbi Yechiel Perr, R’Y of Yeshiva of Far Rockaway, is married to Shoshana nee Nekritz, granddaughter of Rav Avroham Jofen (Yaffen) and great granddaughter of the Alter of Novordok, Rav Yosef Yoisel Horowitz.

    He was married to Leah Weinreb, not Pearl. Her father, R’ Yosef Weinreb, was the first Rav of Toronto.
