    there is an obit for this rav in the NY Times archives on Nov 8, 1942.

    Chief Rabbi of Leningrad, moved to Paris from Russia where he led an Orthodox community of other Jews from Russia. In the US opened a shul named Beth Israel. He wrote several books and transilated many others into hebrew. Died in his apartment at the age of 73 and has two daughters living at the time in Israel.

    This may be of interest to you: In the Dutch newspaper ‘De Telegraaf’ of 10-2-1925, page 1, an interview is published with ‘the Chief Rabbi of Leningrad, dr. M.A. Eisenstadt’. In the interview, he talks about the bad treatment of Jews in communist Russia and warns that Russian Jewry is in peril.

    I should clarify that ‘1o-2-1925’ means 10 february 1925, to rule out any confusion.
