(page 114) Hebrew
R' Asher Zaludoker was a rising star in the firmament of Lithuanian scholarship. With his sharp logic, he enlightened the eyes of scholars in the proper understanding of Jewish law, with a quick grasp and wonderful memory, with humility and good attributes. His teachers and friends prophesied a great future. He married the daughter of Rabbi Weitzel of blessed memory, the rabbi of Bernovitz. He studied Torah diligently in his father-in-law's home and was ordained there. Many saw him as the future heir to his father-in-law as rabbi of the great Bernovitz community, but when the Jewish community in Poland and Lithuania was destroyed, he was killed in the Holocaust together with his wife. Miraculously, his son and daughter survived and are living in Israel.
The daughter of R' Elchonon Boyarsky also married a scholar from the family of the Rabbi of Bernovitz; and their young son studied in yeshivas, but they were all killed at the hands of our evil enemy. May God avenge their blood.
