This is Rabbi Eliyahu-Meir ben Boruch Faivelson, who served as Kupiskis' chief  rabbi from 1907-1928.  He was a brilliant and talented religious leader who wrote "Pikuach Nefesh" and "Netzach Yisroel" and was a founder of Agudas Yisroel.  His daughter Chaya-Leah married Rabbi Zalman Pertzovsky, who was the last rabbi of Kupiskis.

(Photo was contributed by Esther Rieback Hadassin in memory of her mother Leah-Dina Alitsky Rieback, wife of Ben-Zion Rieback.)
