Title: Rav HaKolel, A Biography Of Rabbi Yaakov Yosef


book-rav-hakolel

At this point the community was outraged at the terrible and vicious attack and demanded that the mayor of New York City immediately investigate and punish the attackers. The investigation dragged on and very little was done. (To end this story, a few weeks later Hoes treated their workers to an outing on the Hudson River, and during the festivities, their boat sank.)

R. Yaakov Yosef was put to rest in Cypress Hill Cemetery. In retrospect, perhaps had he devoted his energies and tremendous abilities to establishing schools and yeshivas, he might have attracted a stronger backing for his attempts to raise the standards of Jewish life in New York.

The book is available at most Judaica outlets.

Rabbi Avraham Kelman is the principal of Prospect Park Yeshiva-Bnos Leah, Brooklyn, NY.

  1. Nachum Lamm says:

    The story of the funeral is not quite as written here. The police did arrive, but by that point, the Jews were throwing back the bricks that had been thrown at them, and the anti-Semitic police decided to blame and beat the Jews instead of the real attackers. There was a general outcry, not just from Jews, and the commission set up to investigate ended up making real reforms to the police.

    As to the boat outing, it was almost two years later, was on the East River, and was a general outing for the German-American community, to which many of the attackers at the funeral had belonged. The boat- the famous General Slocum- caught fire, and there were even non-Jewish sources that found a connection. But that's for God to judge.

  2. Evidently the attackers were Irish-American and so were the police who were largely corrupt, which is why the Jews were not protected.

In the 1880s, a substantial immigration of Jews poured into New York from all parts of Europe, Russia, and Galicia. They were eager to escape the hard life of poverty and lack of peace back home, but the reality in America was not as they had expected it to be. It was hard to find work; it was a struggle for mere existence.
