Yesterday I received an unexpected, but most welcome comment on an a post I did nearly a year ago about the famous family of Swedish converts, the Graanbooms, who were important members (and rabbis) of the Amsterdam Ashkenazic community in the 18th and 19th century (link). A direct descendent of this line remarked that he could provide me with a better photo of a statue of his illustrious ancestor Rabbi Isaac Ger than the one I borrowed from this Seforim Blog post, where it was described as "a statue of him which unfortunately disappeared during the Holocaust." I'm pleased that the statue is not lost at all, but is still possessed by the family, as it should be.

This is an excellent example of how badly photographed and photocopied pictures are no substitute for a good one. Many thanks to Ole!
