standing L-R; Reb Aron Ben R' Yitzchok Twersky of Skver-Tel Aviv; Reb Yitzchok Yoel Rabinovich of Monestristch; R' Mordechai ben R' Yitzchok Twersky of Skver-Tel Aviv; Reb Boruch Meir ben R' Gedalia Aron Rabinovich of Monestristch.
This seems to be some kind of class picture. Ginsberg was apparently their melamed. I guess this picture was taken in New York. It might bet that you had to be some kind of בנש"ק to attend this class, since even Bergman was Rebbish. He later traveled to the Holy Land and learned in the Chevroner Yeshivah, leaving soon before the Massacre in '29. His later marriage to the Bilker Rov's daughter probably had less to do with his yichus. The Skverrer Rebbe of Tel-Aviv lived in the Bronx before he went up to the Holy Land, which is why his kids are here too.
