Several months ago someone, I presume, on this list sent me copies of
a sefer, in Hebrew, mentioning several rabbanim/sofrim who may have
been my ggggrandfather , Yisrael of Ostrogh, who was a Chosid of the
Apta Rov (Heschel) and who was also a mechutan of the Admo"r of
Lechowitz (Reb Aharon and Pearl).
As we recently moved and most of my previous material are hidden in
boxes, if anyone on this list was the sender, I'd appreciate getting
the pages again.
If anyone has any more information on my ancestor, Yisrael of Ostragh,
who made aliya to Tzfat during the first half of the 19th cent. I'd be
happy to hear >from you.
