    He was a brother-in-law with Reb Menachem Nuchem Yosef Twersky of Loyev-Myropil [listed on this site].

    Yacov,
    If I read correctly in his Sefer, his originakl surname was actually “Marbinu”, did he change name to Kaufman?

    Is there any children left from the Rebbe?

    Where is Rebbe Arele of Totiv buried?

  • 7 Cossid // Mar 2, 2009 at 3:33 am

    Interestingly he was a Kaminker descendant but was called Miropoler Rebbe, which was from the Twersky side.

    “Cossid // Mar 2, 2009 at 3:33 am

    It goes the other way around. Miropol is from the Kaminke side. The comment should be on the Lieve-Miropol Rebbe (R’ Menachem Nuchem Yosef Twersky, which was a SIL in Kaminke) why he called himself by the name Miropol.

    was he a Tziyoni like his brother-in-law?
