    Pietrikow is in Poland and Chirtch is in Hungary, auuming that he moved to Hungary and then to the US.

    What is your source of his pulpit in Saratoga Springs NY, and why should he be buried on Staten Isand?

    And like Farshlufen is asking, the actual face of the Matzieve would be a help to get more about him.

    YD, if you’ll take notice, the front page of his sefer says Petrikov Plach Minsk, so obviously we’re not talking about the Pietrikov of Poland.
    But that still doesn’t get us any nearer to Hungary…

    This is the best picture I have, after enlarging it I was able to make out some of the wording on top, not much information except for the fact that he wrote another safer titled Emunah Tehorah and that he had “thousands” of students. I also found from another source that in addition to living in Saratoga Springs, in 1978 a third safer was published Kol Sasson on the homilies of Ramban.

    YD, My source is:
    thats in NJ, which answers your 2’nd question.,+Riverton,+NJ+08077&gl=us&ei=JyehS7fBNoH7lwf9toGODg&sa=X&oi=geocode_result&ct=title&resnum=1&ved=0CAcQ8gEwAA

    I double checked’ That address is indeed in Saratoga Spring NY.

    Thanks Baruch, this info indeed opened a new venture, the mentioned Sefer Emunah Tehora ( was printed in NY 1933 (apearently the year he passed away) in 3 languages; Hebrew, Yiddish and English (translated by his two Grandchildren YU Students; Zvi Yehuda and Lieb Goldberg).

    We learn that after Saratoga Springs he moved to NYC where he lived on 636 East 9th st., not sure if he held any position in NYC.

    In his preface he mentioned his “big” Sefer Kol Sason that is mentioned in Baruch’s post, but this was before he printed it, not sure if it was ever printed, but certainly didn’t make it on to the Hebrew Books web-site.

    He went by the English name of Rabbi Morris Goldberg, I did find a Rabbi by that name serving Cong Shaari Tzedek on the west-side of Manhattan, nut that was later then 1933, Baruch are you sure on the date of his passing?

  • 10 Baruch A // Mar 17, 2010 at 4:26 pm

    Yes, that is what is says on the tombstone. He was 75 at the time of his passing.

  • 11 Farshlufen // Mar 17, 2010 at 4:28 pm

    YD, rabbi in Manhattan passed away much later not before the late 60’s/

    [Baruch; Correction: Goldberg not Golberg]

    Petrikov, [Pyetrykaw] is in Belarus.
