The Rebbe came to the United States in 1899 from Russia and settled on the Lower East Side. In 1910 he moved to Buffalo and headed the Jefferson Street Shule. In addition to his own great genealogy the Rebbe was the brother-in-law and chavrusa (study partner) of the renowned Rebbe Mordechai Dov of Hornisteiple.
The Rebbe appears to be the first Admor to be buried in the United States.

    חדש על הבלוג של “מורשת חכמי אמעריקא”

    האם הגאון הצדיק רבי מרדכי דוב מהארנאסטייפל זצ”ל הסכים להצעת גיסו רבי אליהו יוסף ראבינאוויטש זצ”ל לעשות תנאי בנישואין ולהתיר עיד”ז עגונות מכבליהם?

    My father’s maternal family were members of Ahavas Sholem, as far back as my greatgrandfather Aaron Macks. Did the Buffalo Rebbe publish any sefarim? Are any available? Have any been translated to English?

  • 12 asher lowy // Feb 21, 2016 at 6:37 pm

    Leah… the drive is approx just above 6 hours without traffic. The Buffalo airport is 10 minutes away from the cemetery.

    If anyone would like a local FindAGrave (free website that uses volunteers to document cemeteries all over the world) volunteer to accompany them to Pine Ridge or any of the Jewish cemeteries or sections of cemeteries, I’d be glad to assist. I am a local librarian in the process of trying to get the Jewish cemeteries documented (but am not Jewish). All I ask for is a little advance notice. gracedv at hot mail is my contact info.

    כשהגיע לפרקו נשא את בת ר’ משולם זושא יצחק מטלומאטש (נכד באח”ב להרה”ק הרבי ר’ זושא מאניפאלי זי”ע) חתן ר’ יעקב ישראל מטשערקאס בן הרה”ק ר’ מרדכי מטשערנאבל זי”ע
    בזיוו”ש נשא את בת הרה”ק ר’ יעקב יצחק ממאקארוב זי”ע נכד הרה”ק מטשערנאבל זצ”ל והתיישב בקעשינוב, ובעת מאורעות הפאגראמים בקעשינוב היגר לארה”ב בשנת תרס”ז ונתיישב ב’איסט סייד’ במאנהעטן.

    התגרש מאשתו השני’ שהיתה נשואה לפנ”ז עם הרה”צ מאזארניץ (נשואיהם היתה בפרסום בנוכחותם של כל צדיקי בית טשערנאביל והוא החתונה המקארובית המפורסמת), והיא נשאה אח”כ שנית ושלישית. והגה”צ מבאפאלאו הגיע לכאן יחידי. היה גאון גדול והתרחק מהפרסום, רצה להנות מיגיע כפו אך חסידי ליניץ מסאקאליווקא שהתגוררו בבאפאלאו משכו אותו אליהם

  • 21 Netanel. H // Nov 6, 2016 at 11:50 pm

    That rebbe is amazing, we didn’t have kids for few years, when we went there, my wife got pregnant right after. b”h, since than we went there lot of times, everything we asked we got. We got 3 kids, and we believe that the rebbe was the “shliach”. I’m going there at least 4 times a year and I’m planning to go there soon by his yortzayd. B”h, I got parnoseh and kids bizchus of him. This y I named one of my kids after him, Eliyahu yosef.
    I highly recommend for everyone to go there, I have lot of real stories about people who I sent there and got their yeshua.
    How lucky we r that we got such a wholy tzadik in America. It definitely worth that long drive, when I’m driving there Im not feeling like it’s a long ride, we r sooooooooo exited to go there.
    May we be zoche to get more and more yeshuos and may he continue being our Melitz yosher. Amen

    Guys, I have no words, this rebbe is the real thing. I didn’t have kids for 4 years, since I went there i got 4 kids b”h. I named one of my son after him. Last year by the yartzayt I went , and I just got a baby 6 weeks ago, I’m going today ( his yartzayt) to thank him and to pray for other things. I’m trying to go there few times a year. It’s really amazing. We r so lucky to have him. May hashem listen to all of our tfilos . And may he continue to be a מליץ יושר on us . אמן

    I grew up a non Jew in Williamsville (next to Buffalo)
    My wife and I and all of my adult children went there the day before my late mother’s funeral.
    While there – a busload of Klausenberger bochurim pulled up and we davened Mincha there.
    The bus driver and the tour guide told us amazing hashgacha stories about davening at his kever.
    My results were interesting but…
    I will be going again mid-October to take care of some unfinished family business,
