Hi Neal,

Rabbi (and attorney) David Avigdor is/was the rabbi at the Congregation Bikur Cholim Sheveth Achim synagogue in New Haven.  I'm sure that you're aware that he also had some legal problems here in New Haven.  You might try to contact him through the synagogue:

112 Marvel road
New Haven CT 06515
Phone: 203-387-4699
Email.com: bikurcholim.newhaven@...

BTW, although I never knew any of the Avigdors well, I did meet David several times in New Haven, knew his father, Rabbi Isaac in Hartford, CT and way back in 1960 I had occasion to meet Rabbi Jacob Avigdor in Mexico City.

Good luck and stay well,

Werner (HIRSCH)

If you google Avigdor Toronto, several names come up for you to contact as possible relatives.


Hi Neil:
I personally know the descendants of the great Rabbi Dr. Jacob Avigdor. The eldest of his grandsons (Zvi) is a dentist and lives in New York.
Then come the second grandson named Israel who lives here in Mexico City and there is a daughter (I do not recall her name) that, it is my impression, lives in Israel.
Should you need any more information, don´t hesitate to write.
