    The Rebbe was the SIL of his uncle Rebbe Zishe of Chernobyl B”R Ahron M’Chernobyl, so he was a BIL of the Belze Rav Reb Yisochor Dov who was also the SIL of Reb Zishe.

    He had a son Rabbe Yaakov Yisroel, do you know where he is buried?

    Per Reb Yitz Twersky:
    “To the right of the ohel in the photo.”

    He has his own ohel, if I remember correctly he passed away while conducting a tish for the yartziet of the Chernobyler Maggid.
    Thank you,

    What time are people interested in a minyan? The morning works better for me. I could also probably get a key from an Einikel that lives in the area.

    April 3, 1935

    The oldest Chassidic rebbe in the United States, Rabbi Solomon Samuel Twersky, the noted Tchernobiler rebbe, died yesterday morning of a heart attack at his home, 1578 Forty-eighth Street, Brooklyn. He was 70 years old.

    Rabbi Twersky, who was born in Tchernobile, Russia, came to this country from Riga, Latvia, a year ago.

    Funeral services will be held at 10:30 o’clock this morning from the rabbi’s residence. They will be conducted by the Chassidic Admorim, organization of Chassidic rabbis, Grand Rabbi Rabinowitz of Brooklyn officiating. Chassidim from many cities are expected to attend. Burial will be in Beth David Cemetery, Long Island.

    Rabbi Twersky is survived by his wife, Bella; three sons, rabbis in Russia; a daughter in Rumania and a daughter, Sarah, in this city. One of the three sons is expected to come from Russia to take his father’s place in Brooklyn.
