Rabbi Landau has also been leading groups on visits to gravesites of rabbis, chassidishe rebbes, and roshei yeshiva throughout the United States and Canada. Some of these men are nearly unknown today, but they made significant contributions, often at great personal expense, to today’s golden era of Yiddishkeit in America.
Rabbi Landau recently released a biography of Rabbi Joseph titled Rav HaKolel, which will be available, together with other material, at the cemetery on Sunday.
