I’m sorry Steve - I know this is someone to be revered, but whenever I see the name “Mordecai” I can’t help but see the graveyard scene in Fiddler.

Again, not meaning to offend. I just saw the story, and he sounds like a real hero.

Can't find a picture of his grave, but his original name was most likely Wolff Mordechai ben Aron Khavkin (or maybe Zeev in place of Wolff).
