    Does anyone knows which sections this ohel is?

    Rebbe Yaakov Yitzchak Twersky’s ohel is quite easy to find. It is located at Gate 50 – Zkan Aaron – right inside and to the right of the gate. You can see the back side of the ohel from Des Plaines Avenue (the front faces East). Rebbe Yehuda Leib Twersky’s ohel, on the other hand is hand to find and hard to access. It is located at Gate 38A – Naroditch – and is tucked way inside the cemetery and not near any road. They are probably 2-3 city blocks away from each other. If you want to contact me directly I can give you more specific directions on how to get to his ohel.

    It says he was Makarov Rebbe of Chicago. Does that mean he was from Makarov? My Grandfather Berel Twersky was from Makarov and lived in Chicago. I’m trying to find out his parents name.
