    My grandfather.
    He was Chief Rabbi in Philly. During WWI he accompanied President Wilson to Jewish groups to sell war bonds. The Rabbi was a great orator.

    Hello,

    I am looking for a biography of Rabbi Rivkind. If there is one already written it would be great to get the bibliographical information so I could access it. Otherwise, if a family member would mind getting together a few biographical facts that would be amazing.

    Thank you,

    Rivka

    In some of his documents, it shows he is from the tirbe of Efrayim, if history is correct, that is a lost tribe, disperesed among gentiles, and over time, they were no longer jews. what do you all think of this? true or not true? I am so curious. I am not sure what the importance is yet. But truly interested. thank you, Shalom my brothers.

    A number of Rivkinds were blue eye blondes. They did not have so called semetic features. Back in those days there was a lot of ‘mixing’. Hope this helps.

    Hi,

    I’m repeating what Rivka wrote in 2011,

    I am looking for a biography of Rabbi Rivkind. If there is one already written it would be great to get the bibliographical information so I could access it. Otherwise, if a family member would mind getting together a few biographical facts that would be amazing.

    She got a response from Perry Rivkind on July 26, 2011.

    I tried to Email Perry Rivkind. However, don’t know if she still have the same Email address, So if anyone has more information about Rabbi Rivkind It’ll be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks all,
    Moshe

    @valerie – I did not notice your post last time I was here. – Many years back I did some research on our lineage. I don’t recall what I found exactly, but I remember suspecting that he comes from one of the lost tribes. Efrayim even rings a bell as one of the couple I narrowed it down to. Is there anything you can share that gave you this idea?

    @moshe, @Rivka – It has been a few years since I spoke with Perry. We talked a couple times about getting the records of our family, but I couldn’t reach him last time I called a couple years ago to travel down to see him. Unfortunately, his health was declining with memory and he wasn’t very lucid the last we spoke. I could tell it had been progressing quickly. I’ll see what I can find out.

    Almost forgot, I did find Moses’s book about a year ago. Anyone here able to translate this?

    Please share your wisdom if you can! I believe this was his prayer book?

    Send me a message if you need a better photo of any pages.

    Here’s another link to the book. This one shouldn’t expire. Great news, I heard from Perry, he left a message and we’re playing phone tag now. I’ll try him again tomorrow.
