When I made aliya to Israel in 1960, I was told by members of my
Jerusalem born family that we are related to Rav Mordechai Yehuda Leib
ZAKS who was the Rav of Shaarei Chesed in Jerusalem.
My grandparents were Chaim Yitzchak and Rachel Leah (nee SCHECHTER)
As I have spoken in years past to members of Rav ZAKS' family I would
appreciate hearing >from someone who knows the exact connection.
Yoni Ben-Ari, Jerusalem
p.s Is there a s.i.g. for the old jewish community of Jerusalem?
