Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia Rabbi Yisroel Dovid of Nowy Targ #galicia


Hello fellow Galicianers,

According to the Nowy Targ Yiskor book "Rabbi Yisroel Dovid was a
remarkable man and one of the greatest Talmud scholars of his day. The
early hours of the morning found him bending over his tomes, in the lamp
light. The rabbi's wife sold yeast for baking the Sabbath challas.
Thursday was market day in our town, and many people stopped in,
toward evening, to buy yeast, often paying for it much more than the
ordinary price; that was their way of supporting the rabbi."

A note I found in an envelope among my late mother's belongings says
that he passed away 1925 at the age of about 90 years.

Does anybody have any information about his surname and family

Best regards
