Still trying to track an ancestor who came to Eretz Yisrael during
the 19th century to Zfat. Yisrael Nachman ben Yosef (may have been
ROSENBAUM) was a student of the Chassidic Rebbe Yehoshua Heschel of
Apta. At some point moved >from Zfat to Tveria (Tiberias) and
supposedly buried there.

"Sefer Tveria" published in the 1970s mentions the family name
ROSENBAUM without any mention of who the family was, or the time that
this family lived in Tveria. Israel Nachman's children changed their
family names to SCHECHTER.

Yisrael Nachman's was also related to the Lechowitz-Stolin Chassidic
dynasties through marriage.
