Bio Notes:
Rev Yisroel Ber Kursheedt is the only known talmid (student) of Rav Nosson Adler the Rebbe of the Chasam Sofer to be buried in the United States. Rev Kursheedt was a contemporary of Rav Avroham Bing and Rav Wolf Heidenheim. It is reported that Rav Adler held these three students in equal esteem and was quoted to have said Avroham is a charif, Wolf is a medackdek, and Yisroel is a chochem.
