I am very confused about the various Yaakov Koppels who lived in the
1700s. I have the following names:
Yaakov Koppel Hasid
Yaakov Koppel Likover
Yaakov Koppel Charif
Yaakov Koppel of Mezhirech
Are any of these the same people? Which was the BESHT's disciple
and chazan? Which claimed descendancy >from Judah HaChasid of
Thanks. Your help is appreciated.
