Bolechov Chassidism #poland #rabbinic #holocaust


Tzvi Schnee
 

My great great grandfather, Yaakov Schnee was a chassidic rabbi in Bolechov, Poland. Although he had semicha, in all likelihood he did not lead a congregation. Yet, I am interested in knowing to what chassidic dynasty he belonged. I am inclined to think that he was a Bolechover chassid, since that may have been the most prolific chassidic cloize in Bolechov, under the authority of Rabbi Schneebalg. However, there were other chassidic cloizes (courts) in Bolechov. If anyone can direct me to sources, that might shed light on this question, I would greatly appreciate the advice.
Thank you very much. 
Shalom, Tzvi Fievel
