   Two works by R. Meyer Freeman (b. 1843). He studied in various yeshivot before enrolling in the yeshivah in Volozhin at the age of sixteen. Two years later he transferred to the yeshivah of R. Mordekhai Hirsch in Kalwaria, Poland. He immigrated to America at the age of twenty and became a shohet. He lived in New York and maintained hevrutot (regular study partnerships) with R. Zevi b. Nehemiah Katz (in the Mariampoler congregation) and R. Solomon Siskind (preacher of the AlIen St. synagogue). He traveled to the Land of Israel in 1888. While there he was arrested by Ottoman authorities, necessitating American diplomatic intervention. Freeman had a butcher shop on New York's Lower East Side in 1900. Freeman was active in local communal affairs. He served as the president of Beth Hamedrash Hagadol of New York and was a founder of the Association of American Orthodox Hebrew Congregations, which sought to bring a chief rabbi to New York. He later served as the president of Congo Talmud Torah, 221 E. 51" St. Dismayed that he "found ... no Torah" in his neighborhood, Freeman donated "a few thousand dollars" to build a synagogue and study hall with a seating capacity of seven hundred.
