    I imagine that R. Menashe Margolis appears in the following group photo of rabbanim (see link) from the joint convention of the Knesses HaRabbonim and Degel HaRabbonim that took place in New Jersey in mid-1928. This photo appeared on p.19 of Di Yiddishe Vort in the
    Iyar/Sivan issue of 5749.

    The photo was submitted by R. Mayer Simcha Abramowitz who would later include the same photo in his Chachmei Yisroel of New England (1991). I spoke with the R. Abramowitz within the last year and the rabbanim he was able to identify were R. Avraham Aharon Yudelovitch and R. Velvel Margols as the older rabbanim sitting in the middle. Also R. Yaakov Yosef Hurwitz was the older rav with the white beard standing to the upper right of R. Velvel. R. Yaakov Eskolsky (dark beard and hat) is standing just behind R. Hurwitz in between he and R. Velvel. (All of the aforementioned rabbanim have pages on this web site)

    I know that R. Menashe Margolis attended that convention but I’m not sure where he is in the picture.

    I have a relative that has an original of this picture – perhaps I will be able to capture a high quality image of that at some point.

    Thanks Moshe,

    I would love to see a clearer picture of this convention, perhaps we can identify more Rabbonim.

    …..and here’s a link that has a side view of the face of R. Menashe Margolis. He’s with a group of other rabbanim. To the right is a related news article. 5/Brooklyn NY Daily Eagle/Brooklyn NY Daily Eagle 1932 Grayscale/Brooklyn NY Daily Eagle 1932 Grayscale – 9554.pdf

    (this site loads pages slowly so you might have to wait a bit)

    Thanx again, Moshe! However page failed to open…  leave alone the speed, no wonder Apple dropped Flash. Anyhow, can you kindly, save the PDF onto your computer and send to Baruch. Much appreciated.

  • 6 Moshe Escott // Nov 9, 2010 at 2:13 pm

    and wait a bit

    Otherwise, I have e-mailed an image file to Baruch.

  • 7 asher // Nov 9, 2010 at 8:56 pm

    Moshe, TY!
    I have uploaded the main part here, for quicker speed.

  • 8 asher // Nov 9, 2010 at 8:59 pm

    The paper spelled his name MARGOLIN ( ‘n’) – sure we got the right person.

    R’ Menashe Margolis is the first from left (#1 on the photo), Margolin is another rabbi, R’ Yeshaya Yosef Margolin of Brownsville, he wrote variuos Seforim available on Hebrew Books

  • 10 Moshe Escott // Nov 9, 2010 at 9:10 pm

    The Margolin in the caption for the picture is a typo. Probably due to the fact that there was the other Rabbi Margolin in the picture. If you look at the related article to the right, it gets the name correctly as Menas(c)he Margolis.

    he contributed articles in numerous Torah journals from Hungary Romania and Israel.
    for a listing in Bais Vaad L’chachomim, Satmure.
    Also in Toras eretz yisroel, Sharei Orah, Kvutzai Efrayim.
