Gelgor served as the Rabbi of Radzilow from around 1928, until he was
killed in 1941.
He was the last Rabbi of Radzilow.
He was originally from the town of Olshany,
Belarus, and was brought over to Radzilow to take over the position left open by
the death of the previous Rabbi Kiwa Goldberg.
Rabbi Gelgor had
four children: Rywka, Sara, Rajna and Chanoch. Rywka married in Radzilow
If anyone has
connections to the Gelgor or Potashnik families from Olshany, or the
Belarus area in general, please
as I am in touch with Rabbi Gelgor's grandson in Israel, who would be most
grateful to find relatives on either his Gelgor or Potashnik sides.
