  1. He was my great-grandfather (my mother’s grandfather). We always hear stories from my mother. All birthday cards and greetings from him (and his wife) to my mother were in hebrew, in beautiful handwriting, and decorated with birds, flowers etc.
    We are also very proud of his personal friendship with Rav Avraham Yitschak HaCohen Kook( I think they grew up together), the first chief Rabbi of Israel. My mother has a handwritten letter from Rav Kook to my great-grandfather, blessing him on the marriage of my grandfather to my grandmother in 1929.
