הרה"ח ר' משה קצנלנבויגן ע"ה
איש מסירות נפש, ר' משה קצנלנבויגן
Reb Moshe Katzenellenbogen o"h
Reb Moshe was son of the late מומע שרה, who helped hundreds of families of Chassidim leave the USSR in 1946, including the Rebbe's mother, Rebbetzin Chana Schneerson. He was arrested together with his mother and sent to Siberia. Reb Moshe was a proficient talmid chochom and was especially boki in ד' חלקי שו"ע. After he was allowed to leave the USSR in the 1970s he settled in London, where his brother יבלחט"א Reb Yehoshua lives. Upon traveling to New York to spend Yom Tov with the Rebbe, he was asked by the Rebbe to visit Reb Moshe Feinstein and רעד אין לערנען with Reb Moshe, to show how yidden who were raised in the USSR and were imprisoned still managed to grow in Torah.
