    IN the Hakdama to his sefer” Zichron Yaakov” it says he was niftar in Sinai Hospital in Baltimore.
    His son in law Mr. George (rephoel Gershon) Rubin was the president of the Bnei Yehuda Shul in Borough park and arranged for the burial in NY.

    His great-grandson is Rabbi Yaakov Ehrenreich of Boro Park who serves as a Ram at Mesivta Tifereth Jerusalem. Rabbi Ehrenreich was born on the Yahrzeit of his great-grandfather and was named after him. Rabbi Ehrenreich’s parents owned the popular President Hotel in Swan Lake. Sadly, Rabbi Ehrenreich’s mother passed away on Monday, August 12, 2013. She was buried near Rabbi Gordon, her grandfather.
