    Rav Yosef Zundel decided that he needed a shidduch for his daughter so he said the next bochur that comes from Litta will be the edim. he met Reb Nosson and asked him if he agreed – which he did. Everyone thought Reb Nosson was an am ha’aretz till a few days before the chasuna when they find out he was an einekel of the Shaagas Aryeh.

    His Kever is not far from Rav Yaakov Yosef’s, a bit behind it.

    There is a mis-spelled name: his brother-in-law was the long-time Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem, Rav Shmuel SALANT (not “Slant”). I am the great-great-great-grandson of Rav Shmuel Salant, and hereby request that you make the correction. Thank you.

    Nate, how are you descended from Rav Shmuel? Can you give us the exact details? Thank you.

    My great uncle R’ Nassan Nata Nutkin was first married to Tzivye, daughter of my great grandfather Hatzadik R’ Zundl Salanter. He did not have any children with her. He remarried Elka, daughter of one of the gedolei yerushalayim, R’ Shaya Bardak. With her he was zoche to have children.

    This is clearly not the original headstone.

    I have heard that the original headstone is lying next tot he grave. Can someone confirm this and share pictures if it is true?

    Very curious how this headstone was “updated.” Any suggestions?

  • 17 asher lowy // Mar 4, 2015 at 6:12 pm

    Dave… I believe the original marker lies flat above the grave (under the candle box). Same is with Rav Asch’s marker.

    I wrote that with his first wife he did not had children, but I found in chelkas mechokek that she died by birth of a child, both died one day apart, don`t remember who first, Tzivye or the child
