    Rav Sharf had/has a son Reuven Shamshon who learned in the Bobov Yeshiva and married in 1971 To the daughter of Aron Kessler, anyone knows this family?

    Another son Nussen Yaakov was killed RCH”L falling off a roof in 1977.

    Hamoer on his passing:

    Where is/was this shul Chevra Torah Anshe Chesed, Brooklyn?

    1863 Douglas Street.

    It was the product of a merger of Chevra Torah and Anshe Chesed.

    Ben Bee Zee,

    Sorry, but R’ Reuven handed over quite a few years ago his seforim distributing business to his son Ben Tzion, who has since then expanded to retail too.

    R’ Reuven has also printed a few seforim on his own, besides being a well known melamed.

    “Yitzchok Scharf was born in Tarnopol, Poland in 1918. He had three sisters and four brothers. The Soviets deported Yitzchok and his brother Moshe to Siberia. They are the only members of their family who survived. After the war Yitzchok Scharf came to an Italian displaced persons’ camp where he met and married Sheindel Trebitz from Subotica Yugoslavia. On January 7, 1950 they immigrated to the United States and Yitzchok, now Rabbi Scharf, served as a congregational rabbi for 25 years. He passed away in 1979”
