    The father of Reb Chaim Yosef, Reb Aba Leib was a Lubavitcher Chasid from the city of Fandala and therefore was called Reb Abba Leib Fandaler, His son Reb Mordcha Fandaler/Zelbovitz was the Rosh Hashochtim in Riga and was saying Chasidus in Riga

    Uncle Chaim was my Bubbe Fine’s brother. I’d like to be in touch with some of the people whose comments I’ve been reading. Uncle Chaim’s father Abba Leib went to a town in South Africa where he was chief rabbi. He also was ‘av ha-bais din’ and his son Mordechai was a member of the bais din.
