    Relationship to current Bobover Rebbe?

  • 6 YD Miller // Mar 9, 2010 at 10:39 am

    Reb Liebel,
    Of course they are related (Bobov 45) but not to close, they are/were both descendants of Rebbe Mordecahi Dovid Unger of Dombrove, and bothe were named after him.

    The Sanzer Ruv Z”l the Divrei Chaim, was a Mechuten of him, since Rebbe Moshe Unger the son of RMD was his SIL, and in his third marriage the Sanzer Ruv was the SIL of a grandson of RMD of Dombrove.

    The second set of children of the Sanzer Ruv were born to this wife, so allot of Sanzer Einiklech are also Dombrove Einiklech, including the Bobover Rebbes, since the wife of Reb Benzion HS the Kedushas Tzion was the daughter of Rebbe Shulem Eliezer HS who was born to the thrid wife of the Divrie Chaim.

    So I gave you the whole rundown…..

    The Hamodia ran his bio a couple of weeks back, it said that he was a descendant of Belz and Apt as well any idea how?

    תעיין נא, בספר נאמנו מא”ד, שיו”ל ע”י רבי נחום מאיר גערמאן.

    This family descends from R’ Meir of Apt, who wrote the אור לשמים. Not from R’ Avrohom Yehoshua Heshel of Apt.

    They descend from Belz through a daughter of R’ Shalom.

    Any idea exactly how he descended from Belz? I heard that his father married a daughter of Reb Moshe Rokeach of Karov, eldest son of the Sar Shalom, but this does not seem to be documented in the ‘official’ Belzer biographies.

    He was the father-in-law of the big ba’al chesed R’ Avrohom Oberstein z”l.

  • 12 Shmuel // Nov 11, 2016 at 4:15 pm

    Nachemya I like to know more about R’ Abraham Oberstien and about his Chesed I’m a nephew from his wife side Gladdas Oberstien thanks

  • 13 Yaakov // May 8, 2019 at 11:28 am

    His mother was a granddaughter of the Sar Shalom.

  • 14 Rabbi YD Miller // Dec 19, 2019 at 3:27 pm
