    L Katz, whom else do U remember from the Lower East Side ?

    That’s a very broad question, I was a little kid in 60?s and attended RJJ my father once took me to the Rebbe for a blessing.

    The text of the matzeiva does not support the fact that he was the SLovakia Rebbe

    Are you saying that this in not the kever of the Slovakia Rebbe?

  • 6 Miller // May 6, 2009 at 4:37 pm

    It shoud read Sokolivke and not Slovakia.

    I think the text on the Matzeivah does pretty much support the fact that he was the Sokolivke Rebbe. On a side note. The Matzeivah does say that he was a direct descendant from Rav Meir of Premishlan ZT”L

    If any one has any doubts that he was the rebbe –
