Translation below, from Judith Elam
I know Mr Peisech Mendzigursky as a fine, diligent, and honest man, who performed his work at all workplaces in exemplary fashion. His warm, heart-touching chasonus, combined with his deep religiosity and genuine Jewishness, gain him many friends and a loyal community.
If anyone has any information about Peisech Mendzigursky, whom the family believe was one of the acting rabbis – a chazzan – in Kitchener, please get in touch in the usual way.
