Rabbi Harry Epstein was born into a rabbinical family in Plunge, Lithuania in 1903. The Epstein family moved to Chicago, Illinois when Harry was 5 years old where his father became the rabbi of the largest synagogue in Chicago. Rabbi Epstein was educated at a yeshiva in Chicago and then returned to Lithuania to study at the Slobodka Yeshiva and later in Palestine at the Hebron Yeshiva. When he returned to the United States, he was invited to become the rabbi of a congregation in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Rabbi Epstein met and married Reva Chashesman in 1929, shortly after which he took up the rabbinate of Ahavath Achim in Atlanta, Georgia. This transcript is unusual in that it is a fairly informal discussion between the memorist and Rabbi Epstein and Reva Epstein. Rabbi Epstein provides an intimate view of his childhood, relationship with his father, and his education. Reva also contributed several anecdotes about her life, including the moment when she met Rabbi Epstein and their ensuing engagement.
