    From 1924-1939, there was HaRav Yechezkel Podbelevitz (1877-1939), zt”l, the Richmonder Rov, who served Congregation Keneseth Israel (according to other reports he served Congregation Sir Moses Montefiore, or possibly both congregations) in downtown Richmond on 19th St. He was known to be a charismatic tzaddik and talmid chacham,born in Poland, of Litvishe extraction, who oversaw the Kasruth in the city with mesiras nefesh, and inspired some of the local residents, including members of the Grandis family, to a more devoted approach to Torah. HaRav Podbelevitz passed away 6 Tishrei (September 19), 1939 without children. Newspapers reported that he was known in the Orthodox Jewish community of Richmond for his piety and learning He is buried in Sir Moses Montifiore Cemetery here in Richmond, VA.
