ROSTOVSKY connection to Volozhin family #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

I have written in the past that a great uncle of mine wrote, many
years ago that his mother (my great grandmother, Bracha KANTOR) family
is descendant >from Reb. Chaim of Volozhin. In another place he just
says >from "the Volozhin family". After years of trying to find the
lineage, without success, I have a feeling that my above uncle was
referring to a tree that I once saw stating that Avram Aharon
ROSTOVSKY , who was married to my great grandmother's sister (Esther
KANTOR) was a descendant of Reb. Chaim's brother, Shlomo Zalman.

Can anyone confirm the connection between the above Avram Aharon
ROSTOVSKY to the Volozhin family?

Shavua tov,

Yoni Ben-Ari, Jerusalem


Rabbi Yosef of Brezhnitz (nowUkraine) 19th century #rabbinic

Yonatan Ben-Ari
 

We have a supposed lineage to the Mahara"l and the Maharsha"l via R'
Naftali KATZ (a.k.a. the "Smichas Chachomim") through his his
daughter (or grand daughter?) Shprintze and further through her
descendants a Rabbi Shmuel and his son Arieh Leib. of Kremenitz.

In the published trees I've seen , my line stops with them.

According our family notes, it seems that arieh Leib may have had a
daughter married to a Rabbi Yosef (ROSENBAUM?) who was a Rabbi in
Brezhnitz (now Ukraine). They seem to have had a son Rabbi Yisrael of
Ostrog (who was a follower of Reb. Heschel of Apta).

The book, "Mazkeret Legedolei Osrog" mention 2 Yisraels of Ostrog
noting that they may have been one and the same. My ancestor, Yisrael,
seems to havecarried the family name ROSENBAUM and immigrated to
Palestine during the first half of the 19th cent. and lived in Tzfat,
Tveria and possibly also in Jerusalem but was reportedly buried in
what is called today, the old cemetery of Tveria. I went through the
burial ledgers of the old cemetery but did not come across his name,
but was told that due to floods most of the records of burial were
lost.

Another fact regarding R' Yisrael was that his son Yosef married into
the family of the Admo"r of Lechovitz. The sons of Yisrael adopted the
family name SCHECHTER as per their profession.

Does anyone have more concrete information regarding the above Rabbi
Yosef of Brezhnitz or his son Yisrael of Ostrog?

TIA
