    My Great-Great-Grandfather

    Born in Horodetz, Lita circa 1855. He arrived around the turn of the century with his family. Most are buried in that chelka as well. With the exception of a daughter who stayed behind and was murdered and my Great-grandfather who is on har hazeisim.

    He led the Horodetzer kehilla on the LES and was mesayem shas several times in the shiurim that he gave.

    Although in books it is credited to others, reliable sources give over that the Young Israel movement was conceived and was “born” in his dining room.

    His son Max Grablowsky is named as a founder of the Young Israel movement in the book A Fire in his Soul, a biography of Irving Bunim.
