    Rav Flohr had a Seforim Store on Dvision Ave. in Williamsburg which was later ran by his son a famous Lubavitcher Chasid Reb Ahron Flohr and his son Yosef Flohr had/has a Seforim Store in Crown Hights

    Reb Yehuda Leib came here as early as 1894, with his father Reb Yosef Yitchok, the family were Lubavitcher Chasidim some family members became close to the “Malach” Reb Avrohom Chaim Dovber Levin (mentioned on the site).

    It appears the Reb Yehuda Flohr was for a time Rav in Montreal, Canada
