    Here is another son, Rabbi Joesph Kelman who was the founding Rabbi of Beth Emeth Bais Yehuda Synagogue in Bathurst Manor, in Toronto.

    Tzvi Yehuda was in fact the son of Yitchok Kelman as BBZ said. And yes he was in fact an 8th generation Rav, and his grandson today is generation #10

    Michael and Ari, it sounds that you are related to the two Rabbis Kelman mentioned here, I find a Rabbi Yehuda Kelman in Tarnigrad, Poland in 1880, would that be Rabbi Moshe Kelman’s (Yitzchak’s father) father?

    According to “The Many Rooms of this House…” by Roberto Perin, Tzvi Yehuda Kelman came to Toronto in 1928, and had a long association with B’nai Israel Husyatiner Kloiz.
