Re: Origin of the name Brodsky #ukraine
My grandfather's grandfather Joel Meir CHAIKIN had a sister supposedly living in the same town where Joel's friend Rabbi Moshe Nachum Yerusalemsky.
In a letter which was sent by Joel from Jaffa in 1898 Joel asked the rabbi to send an attached letter to his sister or to her daughter's husband Rabbi Shmuel Brodsky.
A late cousin of my father told me once about a marriage of a CHAIKIN girl to the nephew of Laser Brodsky "The Sugar King".
Best wishes to all, Udi Cain (CHAIKIN)
