The author who received impressive rabbinic ordinations from the greatest Lithuanian Rabbis and held posts as Dayan and Rosh Yeshiva in Minsk, apparently could only find employment as a Mohel upon emigrating to the United States. His sermons are quaint and interesting. For an address for delivery at a wedding ceremony he states,”It is the duty of a woman to be her husband’s friend and adviser, his companion and co-sufferer in all that concerns both of them” (Part I, p. 69)
