    He came from Kolomaya, he had TB and at that time only in Switzerland they were able to heal it, so he came to NY were he was at his brother in laws house reb Binyumen Menachem Maryles(he was the SIL of Reb Yakov Kopel Maryles who was the son of Reb Naftule who was the son of HRH”K reb Shimon yareslover) trying to collect money.
    Nebech he didn”t make it so he passed away in the Bronx of TB at a very young age of 40 (or 38) he was a big gaon as you could see in is sefer Mispad Tamririm which he made at the very young age of mid 20’s.
    He had 6 daughters and 1 son named dovid, all were married with famelies and all passed away in europe הי”ד

    Thats what I heard from hin niece (who is now now 95 years old, BTW she told me that she used to go to the post office every month to send money to her fathers sister Sima Leah who was the widow of Rabbi Singer, until 1940 when they told her in the post office they could not send any more money to Poland) he needed funds for doctors etc.

    His wife was a Stretin einikel and the Stretin Rebbe zata”l Reb Yitschok Isaac Langner (whos yurzeit will be the coming Sunday) lived here and had chasidim here.

    As a foot note he is buried in the Stretin chelka in MT. Hebron where the stretin rebbe daughter who passed away 10 years before the rebbe, and Son Reb Feivish are buried, I think the the Stretin Rebbe was personally Misasek with the kevura of Rebbe Singer

    This niece who should live langer and gezunter yahren is a daugher of who?

  • 11 lyi // Jun 26, 2013 at 10:30 am

    REb Binyumen Menachem Maryles who was the brother of Sima Leah

  • 12 M.kennedy // Jun 26, 2013 at 11:53 am



    REb Binyumen Menachem Maryles was a son of who?

  • 13 M.kennedy // Jun 26, 2013 at 11:59 am


    By the way if you can ask the niece my question about comeing to the states by the way does anybody know if his sefer was ever reprinted


  • 14 lyi // Jun 26, 2013 at 12:42 pm

    I wrote in my previous post, he was the son of Reb Yakov Kopel (from Litvosk) who was the son of Reb Naftule (Reb Binyumen Menachem published his sefer named אילה שלוחה) who was the son of Reb Shimon Yareslover ztvk”l.

    In his sefer (which I think it was never reprinted as is, but some parts of it was reprinted in a new sefer that was printed about 2 years ago from Reb Uri Sambor zts”l, he took all the divrei torah from Rebbe Uri from Rebbe Singers sefer) there is the full yichus of Rebbe Singer and his rebetzen.

    I asked her about it, she told me that she remembers that he came to collect money to heal in Switzerland, she dosnt remember him.

    I could send you some more info if you will provide your eamil, I have a copy of his death certificate

  • 15 Ben Bee Zee // May 27, 2014 at 4:54 pm

    correction: according to the Ellis Island records Rav Singer immigrated on 09/25/1921 at age 51, so he was 52/53 when he passed away in 1923.

  • 16 lyi // Jun 1, 2014 at 6:39 pm

    Ben BZ, I sent you an email it copy of Death Certificate, which states he was 40

  • 17 YP // Jan 27, 2015 at 4:49 pm

  • 18 lyi // Jan 28, 2015 at 2:07 pm
