    Yasher Koach for your website. I think there is a mistake in this entry. I remember him well as a Rebbe in Brighton Beach, not Borough Park. Also see: who lists among his brothers: “Rabbi Sholom Leifer, Grand Rabbi of Brighton Beach.”

    Rabbi Shalom Leifer was the Nadvorna Rebbe of Brighton Beach. I davened in his shul. His son Rabbi Shlomo Leifer was the Nadvorna Rebbe of Boro Park.

    To add to what I wrote earlier, please see here:, where he writes: “Grand Rabbi Shalom Leifer of Brighton Beach, son of Rabbi Yissachar Dov Ber (Bertche) of Nadvorna-Satmar. Grand Rabbi Shlomo Leifer of Nadvorna in Boro Park, son of Rabbi Shalom of Brighton Beach ” The kever is R’ Sholom’s of Brighton.

    “Rabbi Leifer O.B.M.,Rebbe of our Coney Island Ave. Shul in Brighton Beach always talked only words Torah when he would sit down at his table to talk with you, even for a long time. I never heard him talk anything else but Torah” my husband Atty. Sol Lieberman O.B.M. used to say whenever discussing the wonderful qualities of Rebbes he knew and so appreciated!
