Hi someone kindly described about the flam family from Belgium. I would like to take this opportunity to bring out how close the family was. We come from the Sholom flam branch. however my parents got engaged in the house of a distant flamm relative in Paris in the 60's.
Does anyone know who that was? Our grandmother came all the way over to the states just to visit her distant flam relatives in the 60's I believe she came to see a mrs presser
Anyway... We need to look into if we are descendants from reb Meir Mipremishlan or only the children of Aaron Meir are.
there was a famous rabbi meir levi flam from paris. he was the grandfather of rabbi shlomo aviner. there was a whole article about him in one of the
papers. look in google.
in the article there is a cute story that when meir levi came home from cheder,
his father asked him why did you get beaten up by your rebbi. he answered
that he made a wiseacre remark about rashi. so his father also beat him up.
