Update: Who are the 3 names who received S'micha

David Cheifetz claims: His father received his S'micha from Rav Aharon Kotler in Lakewood many years ago, after following him from the fiery hell of Europe.
Considering a well known fact that Rav Aharon ZT"L gave S'micha to only 3 people,  who are the 3 names ?

Thanks to  T.P.V  the 3 Gedolim who received S'Micha from Rav Aharon ZT"L:

Rav Shmuel kamenetzky Philadelphia Rosh Yeshiva

Rav Pinchas Gruman from Los Angeles


  1. They both got Semicha from Rav Aaron Kotler
    Rav Shmuel kamenetzky Philadelphia Rosh Yeshiva
    Rav Pinchas Gruman from Los Angeles

  2. Father of Rav Yechie Perr also received Semicha

  3. Considering the fact that Rav Aharon gave S'micha to only 3 people and Cheifetz last name isn't one of them... I tend to doubt his claim. Aich Naflu Geborim

  4. There probably is more than just these 3.
