29 Adar - Yahrzeits

R' Shlomo ben R' Dov Tzvi Hakohen Rabinowitz, Tiferes Shlomo of Radomsk

R' Yaakov ben R' Binyamin Kamenetsky, Rosh Yeshiva Torah Vadaas. One of the great tzadikim and leaders of his generation. Wrote Emes L'Yaakov (the name describes who he was)

R' Michel Berenbaum, mashgiach of Mesivta Tiferes Yerushalaim. Was held in high regard by R' Moshe Feinstein

R'Yaakov Kamenetsky and R' Michel Berenbaum are both buried in Mt. Judah Cemetery on the Brooklyn/Queens border. See here for info.This is a great opportunity to go daven there, especially with today being Yom Kippur Koton. Many people say the tefilos of Yom Kippur Koton for Nisan and Elul even if they don't the rest of the year.
