His Shul is in Boro Park on 48th Street and 16th Ave.

  1. ברוך דיין האמת
    He was widely known as the Sanz-Gribover Rebbe.
    He was famous for having initiated the מכון היוחסין: a sophisticated computer program where with whatever information a family had available to them could be plugged in to the data base and 70% of the time one’s family lineage could be determined.
    He was a rather quiet individual although a great personality and Tzadik. יהי זכרו ברוך
