Are you sure that you have the name right? The only chassidus of which I am
aware that bears a resemblance to this is Kretchnif (the Kretchnover Rebbe),
which stems >from the Nadvorna line. The first Kretchnover Rebbe was Rebbe
Meir, who was a son of the first Nadvorna Rebbe (Mordechai Leifer). Rebbe
Meir settled in the town of Kretchnif and thus the name.
Caren probably meant the Skvera Rebbe of Kishinev (Bessarabia). See
