    The matzeiva says that Rabbi Avroham (Abraham) Auerbach was his FIL, is it the same Avroham Auerbach (d. 1846), a student of Rav Nosson Adler and latter the chief rabbi of various French and German cities among them Strasbourg, Forbach, Neuwied (Rheinland), Bonn?

    Ah Shtikle:
    I am not sure, the matzeiva has inscribed the city of Bona (bett, vav, (or yud) nun, alef), that could be the city of Bonn, Germany.

    The Rabbi had a daughter Esther Eddy who married Shamshon Goldschmidt, they lived in Hamburg, Germany.

    For whatever it’s worth:
    I found a page from the Stammbaum publication (English language publication of German Jewish genealogy) which lists the Auerbach family. For Sara Auerbach (having lived in Bonn, Gernsheim, and Rhein, Germany) and Lazaruz Elieser Lob of Pfungstadt, Germany the names of there 10 children are listed along with the fact that they moved to the United States in 1864.

    Rabbi Loeb actually found the Cong. Chevra Kadisha – Talmud Torah on 622 East 5th St. in NY in 1869 which he did since he felt that none of the existing Congregations at the time were Orthodox enough.

    Before he passes away he issued his will that no Rabbi should officiate at his funeral and that a special message which he wrote down in Hebrew should be delivered, concerning the Orthodoxy of the Jews in NY and strongly denouncing the Reform movement.

    Sadly, his own children were not allowed to follow the funeral progression as they did not keep Shabbos.

    Read the entire article in “The Sun” January, 2 1890

    The date should be changed to 8 Teves as stated on the Matzieve and corresponds with the Sun’s Report of Sunday January 1st 1890

    (Thanks Farshlufen for pointing that out)

    Baruch, the date of Passing is ח’ טבת not ה’ טבת Which was Jan 1 1890.
