    He was the Pittsburger Rebbe?s uncle.

  • 2 Shmuel // Feb 17, 2009 at 7:38 pm

    Is this the Milwaukee rebbe’s oldest son ?

  • 3 Grand Rebbe // Feb 17, 2009 at 7:53 pm

    This is the current Milwaukee Rebbe?s older brother who lived in Denver. His father is buried in a ohel nearby.

  • 4 Reb Yid // Feb 17, 2009 at 8:02 pm

    The Rebbes son is the Hornisteipler Rov of Flatbush.

  • 5 azi // Feb 17, 2009 at 9:18 pm

    Isn’t he the Bobover Rebbes (R’ Benzion z”l) son in law?

  • 6 joel // Feb 17, 2009 at 11:43 pm

    the rebbe was the SIL from the pittsburger rebbe r’ yosef.
    his father r’ yakov yisroel was the SIL from r’ benzion m’bobov.

  • 7 Shmuel // May 3, 2009 at 4:23 am

    Where is the Rebbes father buried, and do you have a link to it?

  • 8 blackleibel // May 20, 2009 at 3:46 pm

    Shmuel: This Zaddik’s father is buried in Milwaukee in an ohel next to the kever of this Zaddik. This Zaddik’s grandfather is buried in Chicago. Both kevarim are shown on this website.

    are there any kivrei tzadikim in the silver spring area??

  • 10 Refoel // Aug 4, 2010 at 7:58 am

    The chassidus is spelled Hornosteipel.

    The family spells the last name “Twerski.”

  • 11 Shingler // May 29, 2012 at 2:50 am

    Does anybody know the syagogue or neighborhood in Denver the rebbe was associated with?

  • 12 Tattale // May 29, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    I think that the current Monistricher Rebbe Shlit”a his his SIL.

  • 13 Mo Kennedy // May 30, 2012 at 8:40 am


    Which Monistricher Rebbe Shlit”a his his SIL.?

  • 14 blackleibel // May 30, 2012 at 3:32 pm

    Shingler: Congregation Zera Avraham in Denver’s West Side, until he quit that Shul and opened the door to his house to everyone and anyone in the world.

    Tattale and Mo: I believe the current Monistricher Rebbe is Harav Gedalya Rabinowitz, Shlit”a. He is definitely not a SIL of Harav Twerski Ztz”l.

  • 15 Tattale // May 31, 2012 at 2:53 am

    Correction: Grand SIL – son-in-law- of his son Rabbi Mordchai of Hornisteipel .

    Rabbi Nachum Rabinowitz Of Monistrich is a son of Rabbi Gedalia A. Rabinowitz of Monistrich in Israel. Rabbi Nachum’s Wife “Chava Lifsha” is a daughter of the current Hornisteipler Rebbe of Flatbush, Rabbi Mordchai Twerski, son of Rabbi Benzion Chaim Shlomo Of Denver Z”l…..

  • 16 Mo Kennedy // May 31, 2012 at 10:23 am

    Tattale does the hornisteiple rebbe have any other son in laws

  • 17 Tattale // Jun 1, 2012 at 1:14 am

    Mo Kennedy:

    I don’t know who his other sons in laws are, but I know that he has daughters by the name of: Ita; Chaya; Shulamit; Nechama & a son Shimon.

  • 18 Einkel // Feb 1, 2013 at 2:48 pm

    Wonder why they didn’t put migezah Ba’al Hatanya as well

  • 19 Howard Tzvi // Jun 12, 2014 at 5:07 pm

  • 20 Joe Bilett // Nov 13, 2016 at 4:18 pm

    The men in the pic appear to be Rabbi Daniel Goldberger on the right, and Dr. Werner Prenzlau (sp?) on the left.

  • 21 Shloime // Jan 25, 2020 at 2:51 pm

    How come he was given the name ben zion when he had two grandfathers still living with the name ben zion ?
