    Rabbi Pesach Wolk z”l was a relative of my mother, Batya Mass z”l. His picture appeared in THE JEWISH WEEK OF FEB. 2010 in an article by Jeffrey S. Gurock. I t shows him standing in front of Congregation Machzikei Hadathm a storefront synagogue in the Bronx, c. 1950. I would like to speak to any relative. H. Schultz

    My mother often spoke of Pesach Wolk. The name Wilkomirsky and the town Zetel were also spoken of often. My mother and other family are also buried in Beth David Cemetary. I would like to speak to any relative of the late Rabbi Wolk, z”l.
