Aharon Meir Oberman, May G-d avenge his death
Aharon Meir Oberman was born in Kamenetz in approximately 1902 and became the son-in-law of Alter Hausman. Aharon Meir, who was a scholar, was a rare cantor and Torah-reader. He was the jewel of the family. Aharon Meir had a sweet lyrical voice and a good ear for music. His method of chanting the prayers was a mixture of ordinary praying and a cantorial style, and he was considered the best cantor in the region. People in the town and nearby area liked to have him lead the prayer services. In his final years R. Aharon Meir led the prayer services permanently in the Street House of Study.
Aharon Meir never received a penny for his Torah-reading. He earned a good living from his bakery, and was also involved in the export of eggs. His wife Chasha Hendl helped him in business. She, like her mother Charna, was a good businesswoman.
The Obermans had two children: Kalman and Leiba. R. Aharon and his family perished. May G-d avenge their deaths.
