    Who was his father?

  • 5 Grand Rebbe // Feb 10, 2009 at 5:02 pm

    His father who passed away in 1921 was Rebbe Yisroel Perlow, the Yenuka of Stolin. He is also known as ?The Frankfurter?, because he is buried in Frankfurt, Germany.

    how far is this from the frankfurt airport

  • 10 Admin // Dec 29, 2009 at 12:41 pm

    About 9 hours!!!!
    I think you have the wrong Stoliner Rebbe, you are looking for the Frankfurter Rebbe this is the Detroiter Rebbe.
    Thank you,

    I was there this past Monday, I should have gepoilt alless gits.

    The gate that says Bais Aharon Chasidei Stolin no more exists.

    The Ohel is in very neglected condition I wonder why the Stoliner don’t renovate it for the honor of their great Rebbe.

    I just got a phone call from someone saying he was at the Ohel today and found it had a combination lock put on it and it had always been open for decades. Anyone know how to get the combination? I just wrote the Loitzker rebbe (Stoliner rebbes brother) about this. This is very frustrating. People from detroit come here for yeshuos all the time. why the sudden change?

  • 21 Channah // Feb 13, 2012 at 12:23 pm

    Regarding the lock – you may want to contact Chesed Shel Emes at
