  1. 12th grade rebbi in the Miami mesivta back in the late 60s early 70s
    Nice man
    Good sense of humor
    Telzer yet lhe was a cousin to groner of crown heights
    Was a rov in Miami beach then north Miami Beach as well

  2. if he was related to the mashgiach of chaim berlin then he was related to r’ leible broner from lubavitch because the mashgiach and the r’ leible groner are cousins

  3. 2. Actually, I remember my sister in law, Miriam (Groner) Marcus, telling me that her father is related to Rabbi Groner from Lubavitch. Maybe 2nd or 3rd cousin.

  4. I also learnt in the Mesivta of Greater Miami (Louis Merwitzer High School) on Alton Road 80/81 & 81/82. We had Rabbi Groner Zt”l in 10th grade. We were quite a “lebidika” bunch (to say the least) but he never lost his cool. He was also the Rav in the Minyan that they hosted in the Mesivta builing, on Shabbosim. He was a very nice pleasant person. He will be missed.

  5. Former talmid of Mesivta-1964-66.Rav Groner,ztl,was not my rebbe,but always took an interest in me.I had the zechus to be baal koreh for Shabbos minyan,in Mesivta,from June of 1978,until December of 1980.Loved Rav Groners ztl,divrei Torah at Kiddush after minyan.
