Right before W.W.II the couple returned to America where he took his first position as rav in Chelsea, Massachusetts, where he served until 1945. Then he became mashigiach at Yeshivas Chaim Berlin until 1964. Later he became the Rav of the Young Israel of Rugby in East Flatbush, Brooklyn and in 1975 moved with the shul to Flatbush. |
