    ר’ יעקב ישראל נולד בשנת תרס”ב לאביו מזוויגו הראשון עם בת ר’ ישעי’ זושא מטשערנאביל, בהגיעו לפרקו נשא בשנת תרפ”ה עם הרבנית ממשפחת הרה”ק רב ייבי מאוסטראה.
    אביו סמכו לשמש באדמורית ואחר שעזב אביו את רוסיא מילא מקומו בטשערנאביל ואלפי חסידים הלכו לאורו, בשנת תרצ”ז עזב את רוסיא ונסע לארץ ישראל שם ישב שני שנים, ואחר הסתלקות אביו הגיע לארה”ב, חסידיו יסדו לו ביהמ”ד.
    נסתלק ח’ כסלו תשמ”ד, נטמן ליד אביו ונבנה אוהל מיוחד על קברו.
