    My grandfather, Samuel Goldman, was Rav Yaakov Yitzchak’s third son. Rav Yaakov Yitzchak had the following children: Harry, Nathan, Samuel (Shmuel) Bessie (Bat Zion) Ida (Chaya Malka) Liba, Leon (Yehuha Leib), Shaya and Ally (Elchanan). Ida and her husband, Moshe Yehuda Goldstein, left Pawtucket RI in 1929 and moved to Borough Park so their children could have a stronger Jewish education. Leon, Shaya, Bessie and Ally followed with their families and were part of the beginnings of the orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn, you can read more about the legacy of a handful of struggling orthodox families, laying the foundations of their community, in Sudy Rosengarten’s book, “World’s Apart”.

    Inyan magazine has an article about the extended Goldman family entitled ” Noble Torah Families, the Legacy of Rav Yaakov Yitzhak Goldman”, about year 2013

    Was he ever resident in Roxbury Mass? I have a letter on stationary by the same name, undated, wishing a son mazel tov on the birth of a daughter.

    Hello Eli Amsel – my mother grew up in Roxbury. She was Eleanor Goldman (maiden name). Her father was Leo Goldman. His father was Harry Goldman, the rabbi’s son. Perhaps it was the birth of my mother that was the subject of your letter? Who is it addressed to? From what year? How did you come across it? Thank you.

    Rabbi Goldman was my great-grandfather. His son Nathan was my Grandfather. Nathan’s son, Harry Goldman, was my beloved father. Harry was born in Chelsea, Mass. After his mother died, he moved to Newark NJ.
    I would so love to connect with more of my family.
