    He was the Rav of a large area in Poland, Shvintzian, before the war. He had three children – two sons and one daughter. His sons Pinchus and Meir predeceased him and his Rebbeyzin at going ages. The Rav, his Rebbeyzin and their daughter, Chaya Raizel, fled Europe with a contingent of Rabbanim that joined the Mirrer Yeshiva. The Rav was the leading spokesman of this group that ended up in Kobe Japan. He was one of the first to receive visas to leave for America . sadly he was niftar shortly after arrival in America. His daughter was married to Rav Yehuda Stamm son of Rav Yisroel Zev Stamm.
