I apologize for taking so long to reply, I dorm in Yeshiva and I come home approximately once a month. First off, I'm not a Rav, I'm just a kid. My father's email address is ''. I'm happy to get in touch with such a close relative who has been so far.

Dear Rav Rachak,

You don't know me (yet) but your parents certainly do.

Some 28 years ago I had the good fortune of marrying a wonderful person named Susie. Her last name at that time was Mermelstein.

If you haven't put the puzzle together yet, that means we are cousins, as she is the youngest daughter of ybc'l Rav Mordechai Mermelstein z'l - who was a brother to your grandfather (all children of Rav Shloma z'l)

I am very sorry our families have been so 'out of touch' - we really need to reconnect.

Let's start with the basics.. does your dad have an email address?

Can you send me your home phone number so I can call and say HI?

Please send me love to your folks and if you send me your number, I'll be happy to surprise them with a phone call.

All the Best,

Office/Cel: (646) 205-8200

Attached is my latest updated family tree (descendants of Shlomo Mermelstein) as a Word document.  If you have any corrections or additions, please send them to me.


Uncle Rudy's grandson created a much more elaborate family tree - go to and select the 2nd choice Family Tree (in Enhanced Metafile Format) to view it.
