    His family probably didn’t have enough money to buy him a proper matzeiva.

    The rebbe was originally buried in Cleveland OH where he passed away while traveling to Chasisdim in that city, and was later moved by his family to what they considered a more respectfull rest-place.

    לבד היותו חתן הדברי שמואל היה לו יחוס עצמו בהיותו נכד בא”ב לאדמור”י לעכאביץ ולמעב”ק

    The Shtetl Links website has a section on Lyakhovichi:

    I once heard from Rabbi Oelbaum (KGH) that once a person is moved, although the grave is not reused the practice is to no longer daven at the old kever.

    There are some people who say that a rebbe buried in Mezhibuz (can’t remember which one now) was moved to Tiveriah’s cemetery. There are actualy two graves for him. I saw the one in Tiveriah. People daven at both kevarim.

    The Apta Rav?

  • 8 Miller // Jul 27, 2009 at 7:36 pm

    The story goes on the Apta Rav as Grand Rebbe pointed out who was originally buried in Eastern Europe (not sure the city, perhaps Mezibuzh is right, but I taought Iasi).

    The diffrence is that the tale there is about Malachim (angels) who moved him and woke up the Shomer (Cemetary Guard) in middle of the night in Tiverya so they will be able to complete to move.

    This story is a long ongoing debate on the truth of it, I think it was the Munkatcher Rav (Rabbi Eluzer Schapiro Baal Minchas Eluzer) who commented “if the Malachim were able to do the entire move on there own, just for the openening of the Cemetary they had to wake up the Shomer?”…..

    That is the reason of the dual Kevarim.

    Correct, only I believe it was the Satmar Rebbe that made that comment.

    Had they not woken up the shamash, nobody would have known who was uried there.

    BTW the Minchas eluzor did consider it legit as he asked to see the place when he was in EY
