    Yaakov Geller was my great great grandfather. He came from Galitzia in 1888. His son, Max, was the first Texas-born musmach.

    I am a historian at Rice University working on an archive of Houston Jewish history. Looking for more information and records related to Rabbi Max Geller/Beth Jacob and would like to be connected to Julie Geller. Thank you!
