The "Bostoner Rebbe" (Levi Isaac Horowitz)
Please note: in the article about the Bostoner Rebbe by Micah Gil (click above), the "Continued" links
between pages do not work. However, if you go to the box at the left side of the page captioned, "In the Court
of the Bostoner Rebbe," clicking on "The Grammatical 'You'" will take you to Part 2 and "Tickled by the Rebbe" will take
you to Part 3. You'll be able to read the entire article.
