Ahron Dovid Burack
Rabbi Ahron Dovid Burack (also known as Aaron David or Ahron David, אהרן דוד בוראק) was born in Popelan (now Papile) i Kovno Governorate, Lithuania, in 1892 or 1893 to Rabbi Chaim Natan Burack and Basse Gittel Gibberman. He studied at several yeshivot in Europe before immigrating to the U.S. in 1914. In 1917, the Orthodox Jewish synagogue Ohel Moshe Chevra Tehilim in New York granted him a lifetime contract to serve as rabbi of the congregation. Rabbi Burack became Rosh Yeshiva at the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary in 1919. Rabbi Burack was the author of Pirchei Aharon (Flowers of Aaron), two volumes of "homiletics and halacha". He died on October 7, 1960, during the Sukkot holiday, and was buried in Jerusalem. In 1960, a high school in Israel was named Pirchei Aharon, after a two volume work written by Burack.
