    Another Rav from Toledo was Rav Nechemia Katz, the brother-in-law of Rav Moshe Feinstein.

    As Rabbi Fine of Detroit writes in his book “Anshie Shem” (Avilable on Rav Nechamia Kats was the SIL of Rav Silverman who passed away at age 62, his daughter was still not married at the time, and the Kehilah comiited to hire for Rav the one who will marry the late Rav’s daughter.

    When Rav Silverman passed away, 3 prominent Rabbis (Siver – Cincinati, Aishishkin – Detroit, and Stollman – Detroit) undertook a rotation to be with the Kehila in Toledo untill they get a replacment Rabbi.

    See the entire story in Hapardes, upon his passing:

    I have a relation. I am his great grandson. His daughter Eta is my grandmother.

    Is your grandmother Eta the wife of Reb Nechemia Katz who succeeded his FIL Rabbi Silverman in Toledo?

    Rabbi Silverman married Nechama Bregman in Windowy, Lithuania in 1898, in 1906 he was installed as Rabbi in Toledo OH where he stayed till his passing in 1934.

    In 1928 he visited Israel and stayed there for a while, he planned on permenantly miving there after retirement, but his early death at age of 64 came before he could fulfill his wish.

    YD Miller,

    Rabbi Silverman married Bluma Kantor in 1894. They were living in Russia before they came to America. I am also a descendent, I’ve done quite a bit of genealogy.

    I would be interested in talking to you. You can contact me at

  • 8 YD Miller // Dec 20, 2011 at 1:34 pm


    If you are a descendant you probably have better sources and more accurate information, but my source for the above information was from Hameilitz July 21 1898, but it might very well be another Yitzchok Moshe Silverman, see link (underlined):

    YD Miller — Actually Eta was the wife of Rabbi Hershal Stollman. Eta’s sister Eunice was the wife of Rabbi Nechemia Katz.

  • 10 YD Miller // Feb 28, 2012 at 5:25 pm


    Was Rabbi Hershal Stollman related to Rabbi Yitzchok Stollman of Detroit?

  • 11 YD Miller // Feb 28, 2012 at 5:37 pm

    Never mind,

    So we now know about another SIL of Rav Silbverman, Rabbi Tzvi (Hershel) Stollman, who was Rav of the Bies Yisroel Shul in Borough Park, Brooklyn NY.

    His father Reb Nachum was a brother to Reb Arye Lieb, father of Reb Yitzchok Stollman of Detroit (so they were first cousins).

    When was he Niftar and where is he buried?

  • 12 Y meisner // Mar 12, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    Rabbi H Stollman died the thirteenth of Av 5747 . He is buried in the town of Kfar Saba in Isreel.

    Rabbi Stollman’s wife’s name was Eta Chana Bas Bluma. Rabbi Stollman added Chaya tio her name when she became ill. They were my grandparents. he was very Close with his cousin Rabbi Yitzchol Stollman.

    I once met his son and daughter-in-law in Lakewood, they also said that he was very close with his cousin Reb Yitzchak Stollman.

    My husband is also R. Silberman’s great-grandson. We visited his kever in Toledo about 1.5 yrs ago. And the little shul on the grounds there that honors both both R. Silberman and R. Katz. He went by R. Silberman, not Silverman – my husband says the name may have been changed to Silverman later by his children.

    Translation of Tombstone of Rabbi Yitschok Moshe Silverman:

    Yitschak Moshe Ben Menachem Mendel of blessed memory, our father and our teacher
    He planted within us righteousness, Torah, humility and a love for mankind. A beloved of Israel was taken from us on the 11th of Iyar 5694
    A holy vessel full of Torah learning, brilliant rabbi, righteous, pious. A great light, the light unto his congregation, 25 years in the holy congregation of Toledo. The chain of his lineage shall be eternal, may his memory be like the waters of the earth. The Torah that he taught is still alive within us and across the land.
    May his memory be bound in the eternity of God.

    Hello. My name is Andrea,
    I recently found out that I’m the great-granddaughter of Rabbi Silverman. I was adopted and am still just learning about my birth family’s heritage. Would love to know more.
