Background: The Admor Rabbi Avraham Elimelech Perlow of Karlin [1892-1942] was the son of the Admor Rabbi Yisrael "HaYanuka" of Karlin. He served as Admor beginning in 1921, following his father's death in Frankfurt, and was the most renowned Admor of his father's sons. He visited Israel several times. His last visit was in 1939, on the eve of the breakout of the Holocaust, and his disciples tried to prevent him from returning to Europe. He refused and departed on the last boat to set sail from Israel. He and his children were all murdered in the Holocaust.
