    How would Adams be spelled in hebrew?

    2. perpetuate care, see that little blue sticker – who normally pays for the upkeep? does that suggest he has decedents around?

    i just noticed that reading the 1st letter of each line spells out HARAV TZVI HIRSH, while on the bottom it only says TZI – was his name Tzvi Hirsh or was he known as Hirsh?

    His given name was Tzvi, but people called him Hirsh, which is the yiddish version of Tzvi.

    The matter og “kinuim” (Nick-names or so) is a long one tracing back to the Beth Schmuel in Even Ha’azer and all Halachic works around that.

    Hirsch is a Kinu for Tzvi being that is is the Yiddish translation of it, Hirsch is also a Kinu on Naftali as well as Hertz/Hirtzn and Hertzka (הירץ, הערץ, הירצקא).

    Correct. Rav Adams was the father-n-law of Rav Kraiser (https://kevarim.com/rabbi-dovid-dov-kreiser/).
    Interesting that in Reb Dovid got the date all wrong there (it says Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan תש”ג).

    Rabbi Tzvi Adams was my grandfather. The well-known Rabbi Theodore Adams (who was president of the Rabbinical council of America and the Synagogue council of America ) grew up in Bangor Maine. At age 14, he had received very little religious education. Rav Tzvi,who was rav in Boston, took him to live with him. In a short while he prepared him to be accepted in a mesivta. The rest is a success story. My story is very similar. At age 10 I went to live in Boston for 6 weeks and I suceeded in being accepted to Rav Pam’s class in mesivta Torah Vodaath. The same occured to my brother Avrohom and my cousin Binyomin. The last few years of his life, he gave up his rabbunis (a synagogue, so big, that over 400 men would enjoy his 90 minute shabbos shiur)to live in the mesivta dormitory to be near and teach his grandchildren. Although he was not the rabbi, people would flock to his shiurim in the Clymer street shule. He was an excepional darshan and teacher.
    He loved shalom. Many were the avowed enemies who made true shalom through his efforts.

    Someone marked up his ‘marker’ with the correct date – see link below.

    The Koslowitz family in Lakewood are descendants of Rabbi Adams. R’ Eliyahu Koslowitz Zt”l of Brooklyn’s mother was Ruchama Adamsky, Rabbi Adams’ daughter.
