Biographical Notes:

The Sambor dynasty was founded by Rav Uri HaKohein Yolles. Named for Rav Uri (the “Seraph”) of Strelisk, he was a talmid of Rav Yosef Shaul Nathansohn, author of Shoel U’meishiv, and a follower of the Sar Shalom of Belz. Before Sambor he was a rav in Komarno, and following the passing of Rav Yehuda Tzvi of Stretin, he emerged as a chassidic leader in his own right.
