    An amazing piece of the puzzle, good work.

    Prior to his coming to the US he lived in London, Engaland.

    Besides Bayonne NJ he was also Rav for a time in Worcester, Mas. (1910-13) later he went to Cong. Bais Yaakov – Anshi Sholom in Brooklyn, NY (1922) , and at some point in the Bronx.

    He was a memeber of the Degel/Kneses Harabonim.

    guess if you are “curious” enough, you find answers…!
    last year Rav Yudelovitch had no known family here… thanx to baruch and his partner!

    He was my great grandfather. He did live in England, Manchester I believe. Brother was Rabbi Yudelevich. Asher is incorrect. Rabbi Yudelevich just had no brothers with the same last name as all took different last names when living in Russia. If you would like more info, please feel free to contact me. Have family history, photos, etc, including when the Rabbis (Golubowski, Yudelevich, et al) petitioned the white house for wine on the sabath during prohibition.

    That makes us relatives. My GGGF, Dov Ber Eskolsky was a first cousin of R. Zalman Tuvia. Their mothers were sisters of R. Meir Marim Shafit of Kobrin.
    There are places in R. Yudelovitch’s responsa where he writes to a brother of his named Dov Ber. Would you know the last name of this brother?
    Please contact me at so that we can exchange more info.

    In regard to the picture or the Rabbis above from 1925, the unidentified 8th man is my grandfather, Lionel Golub, Rabbi Golubowski’s son. He was a lawyer and represented the Union of Orthodox Rabbis on this endeavor

    Hi Janice,

    what is the name of the third brother, seen in the photo with Rabbi Golubowski and Rabbi Yudelowitz?

  • 13 Janice Singer-Capek // Oct 31, 2016 at 1:52 pm

    I don’t know. I think its a brother but I am not positive. I am trying to track that down. I will update if I find out.
