    Does this line of Skvira have a Rabba today?

  • 2 S G // Jan 28, 2009 at 2:22 am

    No. When his brother the previous Skverer Rebbe, Reb Yakov Yosef, came to America, he resided for the first 2 years (from Nisan 5748 to Nisan 5750) in his house and shull in Boro Park, then he buyed his own shull in Wiliamsburgh at 571 Bedford Ave.

  • 4 joel // Jan 28, 2009 at 11:19 pm

    the “boston-zviler rebbe” harav karpf, was his SIL.

    Do you mean the current Zviller Rebbe is his son-in-law? It would be his second wife.

    hey the current zevhiller rebbe is currently the SIL of the SHOMER EMUNIM Rebbe AVRHOM CHAIM ROTH son of R’ Aharon Roth Z”L….
    and “was” the SIL of the media magnet “Redstone” (correct me if I am wrong)

    The current Great Grand Rabbi of Zvhill is defiantly an interesting guy, to say the least.

    reb yakov yisroel korpf’s son reb shmul yitzchok korpf, was the SIL of the rebbe. and his wife is buried near the rebe’s ohel.

  • 11 Grand Rebbe // Feb 2, 2009 at 8:43 pm

    Rebbe Yaakov Yisroel Korff?s ohel is posted on this website. On a side note it?s NOT the same Korff as the Rebbe?s SIL.

  • 12 joel // Feb 3, 2009 at 1:21 pm

    once again! reb shmul yitzchk korff the son of r’ yakov yisroel, was the SON-IN-LAW of r’ menachem twersky. r’ shmul yitzchok is buried in boston-everet, near his father. and his wife is buried in elmont ny.

    Grand Rebbe:
    I hate to go against a Grand Rebbe, but they are the same Korff family. The Rebbe has a grandson living in NYC.

    Rabbi Shmuel Korff, a member of the Boston Beth Din and SIL of the Skvira Machnovka Rebbe, was an uncle to Great Grand Rabbi Yitzchok Aaron Korf of Boston.
    His son in NYC is Joseph Korff.
