He received ordination from Rabbi Mordehai'le of Slonim and also Rabbi Haim of Brisk. One of his teachers was Rabbi Moshe Ginzburg of Samargan. When he married Henya, daughter of Mr. Yaakov Haim, the butcher, he gave him as part of the dowry, some of the butchering business in Antopol, where he was butcher until he left for America in 1920.
