    I am so glad to find this . Rabbi Feinberg was my great grandfather and sadly I can’t add much to this despite my research – I am trying to learn where he was born

    I believe Rav Israel Fineberg was from Lithuania, as was most of the congregation of the Clinton St. Shul. Check out the book “From Ararat to Suburbia”, which has a bit of background on him. From what I read he was very respected by his congregation.
