    Fascinating site.

    Good luck with it.

    Maybe you can have someone help you expand it past N. America, particularly Israel and Europe.

  • 6 Yid // Sep 25, 2008 at 9:02 pm

    You should try to have a story or namee a sefer that he wrote so that we can better undestand who they were. Dates of when they lived would also be great.

    I recently came across the name Rebbe Yaakov Aryeh of Radzimin, does anyone know anything about him?

  • 11 curios // Feb 16, 2010 at 2:03 pm

    The Radziminer Rebbe?! You never heard of him? If I’m not mistaken, the present Gerrer Rebbe is named for him.

  • 12 YD Miller // Feb 16, 2010 at 3:36 pm

    The Radziminer Hassidic Dynesty were named in thier family name Gutterman, it was a Polish Chassidus and they married a lot into the Kotzk and Gur families.

  • 13 MBD // Feb 16, 2010 at 5:34 pm

    I obviously never heard of them or I would not have asked, are there any descendants?

  • 14 Tzvi // Feb 16, 2010 at 5:49 pm

    The current Gerrer rebbe is a descendant and named after him.

  • 15 Baruch A // Feb 16, 2010 at 6:29 pm

    Anyone buried in North America that should be posted?
    Thank you,

  • 16 Ah Polisher // Feb 16, 2010 at 6:34 pm

    He was a talmid of Rebbe Simcha Bunim of Peshischa at around the same time as Rebbe Menachem Mendel of Kotzk, Rebbe Yitzchok of Vurker, the Chidushei Harim and the Izhbitzer.

    Radzimin (or Radzymin) is a small town in Poland and is considered a suburb of Warsaw.

  • 17 curios // Feb 16, 2010 at 8:02 pm

    Reb Yaakov Aryeh of Radzymin was nifter on the 18th of Tamuz ,תרל”ד -1874, and is buried in the Gensha cemetery in Warsaw. His oldest son Reb Yisroel became Rebbe in Otvotzk, his second son Reb Shlomo Dovid Yehoshua in Radzymin. A third son was Reb Avrohom Chaim.

    Reb Shlomo D.Y.’s son was Reb Ahron Menachem Mendel who became Rebbe in Radzymin after his father was nifter. His son-in-law was Reb Hirsh of Lumaz who was a grandson of the Kotzker. His son-in-law was Reb Nechemiah Alter, a brother of the Gerrer Rebbe Reb Avrohom Mordechai – the “Imrei Emes”. His son-in-law was his nephew Reb Simcha Bunim Alter – the “Lev Simcha”, son of Reb Avrohom Mordechai. His son Reb Yaakov Aryeh Alter is the current Gerrer Rebbe.
    The aforementioned Reb Ahron M.M., and his son-in-law Reb Nechemiah, are both buried next to the Radzyminer Reb Yaakov Aryeh.

    Reb Nechemiah was nifter in the Warsaw Getto in תש”ב – 1942. A few years ago some Chassidim traveled to the cemetery and discovered his kever there, near the kever of the Radzyminer (in the same Ohel).

  • 18 yanky // Feb 25, 2010 at 9:12 am

    Does anyone know anything about Reb Nuta of Kotzk? He was named by the Kotszker Rebbe as his successor but he was murdered.

  • 19 eliezer // May 27, 2010 at 12:59 pm

    Can you have a list by Cemetary, so if we are visiting a cemetary, we can know who else is there.


  • 20 Cheskel // May 27, 2010 at 2:27 pm

    Thats why there is a Categories list,
    located on the right side, just above the Recent Comments.

  • 21 jojo // Sep 1, 2010 at 1:36 pm

    any chance u can get us a list for europe?

  • 22 Reuven Rosenberg, D.C. // Feb 21, 2011 at 6:21 am

    Perhaps you could list the kevarim by cemetary as well? Do you have anyone listed in Mokom Shalom or Bayside cemetaries in Queens?

  • 23 Farshlufen // Feb 21, 2011 at 1:38 pm

    Reuven, see here:

  • 24 Mo. Kennedy // Feb 22, 2011 at 8:54 am


    are you sure his name was Reb Nuta ?

  • 25 Aibish // Apr 5, 2011 at 1:01 am

    Reb Baruch

    Great work.
    It would most helpful if you could list them also
    by cemetary. This way if someone is at a particular cemetary they could find out who among these gedolimis at the same cemetary

  • 30 AnAmericanHasid // Jun 30, 2013 at 2:54 am


    I’m very very impressed with the work you do and the accomplishments is indescribable.

    But I searched for
    RABBI PINCHOS DOVID HOROWITZ ZT”L, the first Bostoner Rebbe.

    Would appreciate if you can add his profile to your comprehensive database.


  • 31 M.kennedy // Jul 1, 2013 at 8:40 am

    The first bostoner rebbe is not buried in the us but in Jerusalem

  • 32 A Bostoner Chosssid // Oct 13, 2013 at 10:40 am

    The first Bostoner Rebbe was nifter during WW2. He was buried in the Tzelamer chelka. After the war, he was moved to Eretz Yisrael

  • 33 Mendel // Mar 17, 2014 at 9:28 pm

    Can you Photograph the kevar of Rabbi Meilech Pohrille, in mt.hebron, in the first uscieczkier socieity

  • 34 Mimi // May 27, 2014 at 10:55 am

    There are quite a few Rabbanim, Rebbes and Rebbetzins buried in the Jewish Cemetery in Ste. Sophie, Montreal, Quebec, and in Kiryas Tosh, Boisbriand, Quebec, Canada. Perhaps you should contact the Chevra Kadisha in Montreal. It would be nice if you can add them to your list.

  • 35 Yoel S // Jul 22, 2014 at 3:37 pm

    I see someone asked recently for a photograph of Rabbi Meilech Pohrille’s kever. I have one, and of his children’s as well. Please let me know how to send/upload it.

  • 36 sdsdfqgw // Aug 19, 2014 at 12:24 pm

    Yoel S also do you know anything about Pohrille during his life? Or are there any pictures of him during his life?

  • 37 Yoel S // Aug 21, 2014 at 2:49 pm

    Yes on both counts. Just tell me where to send it.

  • 38 Ben Bee Zee // Aug 21, 2014 at 2:58 pm

    My great great grandfather was the Radziminer Ravs gabbai. His name was Sruel ( or Shmuel?) Gutovitch, and he was buried near the Radzimer Ravs kever. Wonder if the graves are legible there , and if I would be able to find him. Any info? Thanks in advance

    In Radzymin a new ohel is just being built:,the-restoration-of-tsaddik-guterman-s-ohel-has-begun/

  • 42 Mordechai Grayber // Mar 2, 2015 at 10:20 pm

    Doew anyone know of any descendants of R. Simcha Bunim of Peshischa (Poland)?

  • 43 Dina L. // Sep 4, 2017 at 10:57 am

    I would be so glad if I were able to enter the name of the cemetary I am visiting & the names of the Tzadikim with kevarim there would appear. Unless this feature is already part of the site & I just don’t know how to access it?

  • 44 Suri Fink` // Oct 4, 2018 at 9:02 pm

    Hi, I was in Poland and went to the Warsaw Beis Hakvaros. I want to know whose kever is right near the Modzitz Rebbe’s (R’ Yisroel) ohel.

  • 45 Dedi Firestone // Nov 15, 2018 at 3:23 pm

    I just happened upon your site, and it’s fascinating. Kol HaKavod to those who set it up and continue updating the site.
    I am writing because I noticed that some of the posts include people who are also knowledgeable about Rabbinic families in Europe. I have a family history that claims descent from Rabbi Moses Isserles. The family history is written in German, as the branch (Karger) that claims descent from one of Rav Isserles’ daughters, eventually lived in Prussia/Germany. The info I can find online does not corroborate my family’s tree, so if anyone can help me establish a line of Isserles’ descendants I would be most grateful.

  • 46 a g // Aug 22, 2019 at 7:53 pm

    we came across a family grave which says we are desenfants of r yaakov shamshon from shpitevk
    wondering if anyone knows the family trees or if there is an existing chasidus today
    seems as it is distantly intertwined with the belz dynasty

  • 47 to A G // Sep 1, 2019 at 12:55 pm

    i think vishnitz is somehow related to him. his son was married to a daughter of r pinchos of koretz
