In the 1980s Rabbi Jonathan Rosenbaum researched the life of Zvi Hirsch Grodzinsky and wrote a scholarly paper that is until today considered to be the authoritative essay on the life of this Torah scholar.
This Shabbos Rabbi Rosenbaum is the guest on Good Shabbos Nebraska - America's favorite Shabbos morning talk show.
Today we were at the Rose Blumkin Jewish home and we ran into Melvin Tatelman and his son Mark Tatelman. Melvin is married to Rabbi Grodzinsky's granddaughter and Mark is Rabbi Grodzinsky's great grandson.
I introduced Rabbi Rosenbaum to the Tatelman's and we sat down and learned some Torah together.

the descendants of Zvi Hirsch Grodzinsky
This was a great honor for Rabbi Rosenbaum to learn with them and they were so grateful that Rabbi Rosenbaum ensured that the legacy of Rabbi Grodzinsky will live on.
Tomorrow Rabbi Rosenbaum will talk a little about Rabbi Grodzinsky, but mostly about his expertize in Biblical archaeology, having studied at Harvard under some of the most influential scholars in the field and having been the deputy director of the Ein Gedi excavation in Israel.
It is going to be a great Shabbos. It all begins at 10am every Shabbos ONLY at Beth Israel.
