Re: GOLDMAN and Zwehill (?) Dynasty, Brezezany #galicia

Zvehil is a town in Volyn, Ukraine now known as Novohrad-Volynskyi.

The third Zvehiller Rebbe was R' Mordechai GOLDMAN. See

The second wife of the third Belzer Rebbe, R' Yisochor Dov I, was
Chaya Devora PYTSHNIK, daughter of Rabbi Avrohom Shmuel of Berezna,
who was the son-in-law of R' Mordechai GOLDMAN of Zvehil. See

So the present Belzer Rebbe, whose father R' Mordechai ROKEACH of
Bilgoraj was a son of Chaya Devorah, is indeed a descendant of the
Zvehiller dynasty.

Note too that Rabbi Avrohom Shmuel was a son of Rabbi Yitschok
PYTSHNIK, presumably a second cousin of Rabbi Mordechai GOLDMAN.

I am looking for information on a Chassidic dynasty described to me
by an Israeli as named "Zwehill". I believe they sourced in
Brezezany and one name in the family was GOLDMAN. A daughter of the
family, Chaye Devorah A"H, was the second wife of Reb Yissacher Dov
(1st), ADMOR of Belz and so was the grandmother of the current
Belzer Rav.

Does anyone know anything about the Zwehill dynasty, the GOLDMAN's
or Chaye Devorah or anyone who might be related in to this dynasty?
