Rabbi Yisrael ROSENBAUM of Ostrov-19th cent. #russia


Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

Looking for descendants of R' Yisrael ROSENBAUM of Ostrov, a follower
of R'Yehoshua Heschel of Apta. Yisrael came to Eretz Yisrael (then
Palestine) during the first half of the 19th cent. probably in the
1830s. His children stayed in Europe (Skalat and Staro-Konstantine).
The sons adopted the family name SCHECHTER according to their
professions.

Yacov Gedalia SCHECHTER, Yisrael's grandson (from his son David),
eventually also made aliya . His descendants are prominent Breslev
Chassidim.
