Today’s Yahrtzeits & History – 24 Sivan


yahrtzeit-candlesRav Moshe ben Shlomo HaKohen, a German Tosefist (1198)

Rav Yisrael Chaim Friedman of Rachov, the Likutei Maharyach, a commentary on the Shulchan Aruch, Orach Chaim (1922). He was one of the important talmidim of the Yitav Lev. His volume sefer was entirely printed by the author over the course of 11 years. He died in an accident that occurred while he was in the “Palinina” (where the flocks graze) to assure the kashrus of cheese. There was a sudden cloud burst of heavy rain, which resulted in a sudden flash flood in which Rabbi Yisrael Chaim Friedman drowned.

Rav Yaakov Yitzchak Shapiro of Bledov

Reb Yossele Rosenblatt (1882-1933). Born in Tserkov, Ukraine, he was the first son in a family of nine girls. His father was a Rizhiner chasid who frequented the court of the Sadigor Rebbe. He became Oberkantor (chief cantor) in Pressburg, Hungary, at the age of 18. He moved his young family to Hamburg, Germany, five years later. In 1911, he moved to New York to become chazazn at Ohab Zedek. He soon developed an enormous reputation among Jews and non-Jews alike, the New York Times including an article about him in May 1917.
