    Kigelfressir! on Apr 6 you posted that Reb Laizer Chaim Yampoler’s wife SARA (probabely “Mita sara”) was a 4th generation of Sara, R’ Nachman’s daughter. Can you please explain it more in detail?

    Woeee! Check out this interesting story coverage about the Yampole Rebbe ZT”L in the The New York Herald, unbelievably + disappointingly, on the negative side, including a photocopy of his handwritten remedy. (credit: onthemainline).

    Note: According to the sketches + article, the Rebbe ZT”l wore a Ruzhiner style, coned shaped shtreimal, although I was led to believe that only the Ruziner family members did so (is that true?). However, according to the Hamodia article (April 13, 2013), he was talmid of Harav Menachem Nachum of Stefenesht (a son of Harav Yisrael of Ruzhin, zt”l), so maybe that explains why he wore one too.

    tomorrow is the Yahrtzeit

  • 16 Chaim // May 6, 2014 at 9:46 am

    A big crowd at the tzion yesterday. Every year the number of people visiting the tzion seem to increase. Lots of people needing help.
    It is unbelievable that the wife and son of the Chofetz Chaim are buried nearby.

  • 17 tattale // May 6, 2014 at 10:59 am

    also the 2 Roshei Yeshivos of Yeshivas Chofetz Chaim in Queens are buried right in back, Rabbi Chaim Dovid Hacohen Lebowitz & Rabbi Henoch Z”L.

    I came across the marker / stone of the Yampoler Rebbe’s son-in-law, Yechiel (Charles) Meyer Saltzstein, buried in Mount Zion cemetery (in the Cong. Bnei Avrohom Anshei Polin section).

    Fannie Saltzstein (age 21), his daughter, is also buried in that section.

    Inscription of his marker reads:

    איש תם וישר
    הולך תמים ופועל צדק
    ר׳ יחיאל מאיר ב״ר צבי שרגא ז״ל
    חתן הה״צ ר׳ אליעזר חיים ז״ל
    שהיה נכד הבעש״ט זצ״ל
    נאסף אל אבותיו
    בוים כ״ו אדר תרע״ח
    ת נ צ ב ה

    Beloved Husband
    and Dear Father
    Meyer Saltzstein
    Died march 10, 1918
    Aged 63 years

    Meyer Saltztein, married Brocho Pearl (Bertha) Rabinowitz in 1893 — Meyer being 39 years of age while Bertha was 21 years young.

    According to her citizenship application documentation + the census records, they had 7 children.

    Fannie (Frances)

    Meyer was diamond merchant. In 1906, he filed a police report for the loss of 102 diamonds worth $2000 – being ertain they were stolen on the overcrowded platform, while crossing the Williamsburg bridge to Manhattan.

    Benjamin Saltzstein (passed away in 1919, at age 25) is buried in Mt Judah Cemetery, in the Rabbi Twersky section (block 9, gate 14), on the same road that leads to where his grandfather, the Yampoler Rebbe is buried.

    Where was Yampole located? Which country? What is it called today?

    The rebbe ztl is a Ben acher Ben from the holy zlotchiver maagid who is buried in yampuleh together with his oldest son rebbe Yosef of yampuleh, great grandfather of the rebbe. There is a very nice shul and Mikva, with a decent hotel to stay, right near the kever. It is said that the Nodeh beyehudah davened in that shul.
