An extensive library in three languages—Yiddish, Hcb-rew and Polish—was maintained in "The Farein" and youth read its books avidly.

In the early twenties Hirsh Trachman suffered a great tragedy in his family — his wife and son died of blood poisoning within a few days of each other. After this catastrophe Reb Hirsh left Brzozow for Sanok. Reb Ben-Zion and his family remained in Brzo-zow, where he had a baked-brick factory as well as the monopoly for selling brandy wholesale. Reb Ben-Zion’s wife, Rechtshe, was known for her wisdom and kindness.
