A couple of weeks ago we wrote about the departure of another Essex Street institution, Zelig Blumenthal.  After almost 60 years on the Lower East Side, the torah scribe and Judaica shop vacated its iconic 13 Essex storefront, relocating to Brooklyn.

In the past day, we’ve exchanged emails with Mordechai Blumenthal, who runs the business now. After our story, he received calls from customers asking for more information.
