GOLDMAN and Zwehill (?) Dynasty, Brezezany #galicia


roe kard
 

I am looking for information on a Chassidic dynasty described to me by
an Israeli as named "Zwehill". I believe they sourced in Brezezany and
one name in the family was GOLDMAN. A daughter of the family, Chaye
Devorah A"H, was the second wife of Reb Yissacher Dov (1st), ADMOR of
Belz and so was the grandmother of the current Belzer Rav.

Does anyone know anything about the Zwehill dynasty, the GOLDMAN's or
Chaye Devorah or anyone who might be related in to this dynasty?

Thank you.

Zvehil is a town in Volyn, Ukraine now known as Novohrad-Volynskyi.

The third Zvehiller Rebbe was R' Mordechai GOLDMAN. See
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zvhil_(Hasidic_dynasty)

The second wife of the third Belzer Rebbe, R' Yisochor Dov I, was
Chaya Devora PYTSHNIK, daughter of Rabbi Avrohom Shmuel of Berezna,
who was the son-in-law of R' Mordechai GOLDMAN of Zvehil. See
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yissachar_Dov_Rokeach_(I)

So the present Belzer Rebbe, whose father R' Mordechai ROKEACH of
Bilgoraj was a son of Chaya Devorah, is indeed a descendant of the
Zvehiller dynasty.

Note too that Rabbi Avrohom Shmuel was a son of Rabbi Yitschok
PYTSHNIK, presumably a second cousin of Rabbi Mordechai GOLDMAN.

I think I asked this before but I lost the e-mails: One of my
ancestors is recorded as being Rav Yosef (Rabbi?)of Breznitz. The
personalities of his generation came mostly >from the area of Skalat,
Kremenetz, Starokonstantine. Could Breznitz be the same town as
Berezna? Can someone suggest another town for Breznitz? Can someone
identify a Rav of Berezna (or Breznitz) who lived around the turn of
the 18/19th centuries?

Thank you
