Rabbi Yisrael of Ostraha-connection to past ADMO"R of Stolin #general


ben-ari <yrcdi@...>
 

According to a written note in my family, my gggreatgrandfather, Yisrael of
Ostraha, "was a mechutan of Rabbeinu Asher Hagadol of Stolin and Haraha"k R'
Mordechai of Lechovitz, as he (Yisrael) took for his son Yosef, the daughter
of R' Aharon of Lechovitz, etc"

I am trying to research this Yisrael of Ostraha:
Did he have a family name (We think it may have been ROSENBAUM or
SCHECHTER)? Can anyone confirm this.

We are >from another of Yisrael's offspring, a David (of Staroconstantine
&/or Skalat). Does anyone have any connection to this David son of Yisrael?

Shavua Tov,

Yoni Ben-Ari, Efrat, Israel
