    To #3: The Liminiver Rov’s name was Nosson, not the Riglitzer Rov’s.

    The current Rov in Bais Yisroel is Rav Dovid Margaretin shlit”a.
    I, too, remember Reb Nosson z”l. His saintly figure was a regular one in Monsey on any given shabbos afternoon. In his older years his children or msipalelim placed chairs along his route from his home to the shul. He would sit and rest periodically and people would take the oppotunity to wish him a gut shabbos and speak to him in halacha. Z’chuso yagen aleinu.
