Rabbinic Genealogy SIG #Rabbinic Radunsky/Rudensky #rabbinic
I'm trying to find information on a rav whose last name is Radunsky or
Rudensky. He was a chevruta of Rabbi Isser Zalman Meltzer, who learned
in Volozhin, Slabodka, and Slutzk.
He was married to the daughter of a parnas >from Nezvizh (near Minsk)
named [mem, lamed, vet, samech, kuf, yud], which would be either
Milevsky, Milvesky, or something along those lines.
He had a son named Yerachme'el, who was a successful businessman in Germany.
And for a time when there was a council of rabbis in the USSR, he was
one of its five members (according to Chimen Abramsky, whose father was
Rabbi Yechezkel Abramsky).
According to http://www.tog.org.il/m/Article.aspx?id=152, there was a
Rabbi Shimshon Radunsky who helped lead the Volozhin yeshiva after R'
Chaim passed away. I haven't been able to find a single mention of this
rabbi anywhere but this article.
And according to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shlomo_Heiman, there was
a Rabbi Yochanan Rudensky of Volozhin as well.
I managed to find a record of a Rachmel Rudenski who was born in 1904 in
Shavli and was living in Kovno in 1921, but it doesn't list his father's
If anyone has any leads, I'd be grateful.
