    Why was he called Yerushalaime Rebbe, was he from the Yerushalaime Auerbach family?

    (thanks Baruch for linking this to the rebbe’s FIL Rebbe Gottesman)

    He was from Jerusalem, his grandfather was the Imrei Binah.
    I wonder how he ended up on the Lower East Side????

  • 3 Cosid // Feb 3, 2009 at 8:58 pm

    I believe he had a son in Netanya, who passed away not so long ago.

    Reb Yid,
    If he was the SIL of a New York Rebbe that’s how he ended up in NY.

    It’s interesting why there is no writing on the Matzive about his Admoros, besides the fact that the Jeruslem Auerbachs were not Chasidishe Rebbes at all.

    Pushateh Yid:
    The Rebbe first lived in East New York and then moved his shule to Crown Heights, where did you get that he lived on the Lower East Side?

  • 6 Baruch A // Feb 4, 2009 at 4:41 pm

    I spoke to a grandson-in-law, it appears that it was in accordance with the Rebbe?s wishes.
    Thank you,

    Sorry, I meant East New York.

    Would anybody know if he was a koshnitzer einikel

  • 9 sarah birnhack // Oct 18, 2011 at 3:29 pm

    De Mo. Kennedy,

    No, he was not a Kozhnitzer einikel. He was a direct descendant of the Imre Binah, and was really NOT a Chassidishe Rebbe. He had a shul his entire life, and his Rebbetzin was a direct descendant of the Tosfos Yom Tov through he father, the Jassa Rebbe, Harav Avraham Yosef Yoska Gottesman, zt’l, and of the Baal Shem Tov through her mother, my great-grandmother Faigeh, a”h.

    I was very close to him. I lived upstairs and my Bar Mitzva was in his Shul. I would learn with him every Shabbos. Morning was Kitzer Shulchen Urech and afternoon was Ein Yakov.
    I know his Hallel Nishich and other nisichum by davening. I loved his davening. I know his neginim. I was like his Gabbai… I used to daven for the Amid. I loved him. He was a great inspiration for me and my Mishpacha. I was there near his bed nebach when he was sick and there till the end.
    Great memories.
