Another Rare Rabbinic Photo!

From the same gathering, different year (the first was 1926, this is 1930 - Reb Yosef Leib had passed away by then). Anybody recognize anyone in the audience?


  1. What are those flags hanging above them? The one on the right looks like the flag of Lithuania Minor (aka Prussian Lithuania) (see ) but I have no idea what the one on the left is.

  2. All I can tell you is that it is a Magen David with a word in the middle that looks like the Shem Havayah, but surely cannot be. Perhaps this was the flag of the Lithuanian Jewish community?
