JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen information on Volozhin (Belarus) Yeshiva #general

David Laskin

I am researching my family (HaKohen in Yiddish, Kaganovich in
Russian), Cohenim scribes who were associated with the great Yeshiva
in Volozhin. I have read (in Yaffa Eliach's "There Once was a World")
that "Down to the present day, [the Volozhin Yeshiva] members have
remained among the most prominent of the Jewish intellectual elite."
I am eager to hear >from anyone who has family or intellectual ties to
this renowned institution. David Laskin, Seattle, WA
