    Biography
    Yitzchok Scharf was born in Tarnopol, Poland in 1918. He had three sisters and four brothers. The Soviets deported Yitzchok and his brother Moshe to Siberia. They are the only members of their family who survived. After the war Yitzchok Scharf came to an Italian displaced persons' camp where he met and married Sheindel Trebitz from Subotica Yugoslavia. On January 7, 1950 they immigrated to the United States and Yitzchok, now Rabbi Scharf, served as a congregational rabbi for 25 years. He passed away in 1979.
