    Could someone please post telephone numbers of the various branches of the Ginsburg and Stefansky families so readers can call with condolences.


    About two or three years ago, the Yated had an excellent biography about the elder father of the Ginsburg family, Maran Rav Ephraiyim Mordechai, ZT’L; as mentioned here, he was a son-in-law of Maran Rav Yechezkel Levenstein, ZT’L, mashgiach of Mirrer Yeshiva and Ponovezh Yeshiva, and had been the rosh yeshiva of Mirrer Yeshiva in Brooklyn.

    The biography related that the elder Rav Ginsburg, ZT’L, had, Yibodlem L’Chaiyim Tovim V’Aruchim, several sons, Sh’lita, who are all Gedolay Torah of our time.

    I myself know of two of them: 1.) Rav Chaiyim, Sh’lita, who, I think is the oldest, and, as the story says here, is now tragically in Aveilus for his wife, A’H. 2.) Rav Eliezer, Sh’lita, who is the Rosh Kollel of Mirrer Yeshiva in Brooklyn and the Rav of Agudas Yisroel of Kings Highway.

    When I was privileged to attend the Mirrer Yeshiva, I went to a few of the Sichos Mussar that Rav Eliezer gave to Bachurim and to a few Shiurim that he gave on Nach, Sefer Sh’muel.
