Bio Information: 

The Rebbe eventually opened a Shtibel in Washington Heights.
In the aftermath World War I, many Jews from Eastern Europe found themselves in Berlin, among them was Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the future Lubavitcher Rebbe and his wife Chaya Mushka (Moussia).  The Dombrova Berlin Rebbe was a source of warmth and inspiration for many of these Jews.  The Lubavitcher Rebbe upon meeting the Rebbe’s son Naftali some fifty years later commented: “You cannot imagine what a man your father was”.
