Bio Information:
The Rav, who established an Eruv on the Lower East Side was considered the Chief Rabbi on New York City by many. This was a cause of great conflict between the Rav and 聽Chief Rabbi, Rav Yaakov Yosef Joseph (RJJ). Ironically, in a twist of fate, they are buried not far from each other.
