    Thank you for the link, very interesting.

    Rav Yitzchak Friedman (1924). Born in Sadigura, both of his parents were grandchildren of the Ruzhiner Rebbe. In 1903, he married, and with the passing of his father, he set up his court in Rimanov. He was niftar during a fund-raising expedition in the United States. A close friend and relative collected hespedim for the Rebbe in a sefer called Akeidas Yitzchak.

  • 5 asher // Nov 25, 2009 at 7:57 pm

    Page 60 of the link provided above by BBB and YD Miller, among the Sadigerer Chasidim who helped the Rebbe during his illness was R’ Avrohom Shor, father of Harav Gedalyeh Shor z”l.

    Can someone confirm how the Rebbe suddenly took ill and passed away?

  • 6 YD Miller // Nov 25, 2009 at 8:08 pm

    Asher, I can read in your question that you might be reffering to an alleged poisining of one of his close assistants, I am not sure that this conspiracy has proven anywhere so I wouldnt write more details.

  • 7 asher // Nov 25, 2009 at 9:41 pm

    YD, you read me correctly. I didn’t want to say anything prior doing any research on the matter.

  • 8 Baruch A // Nov 26, 2009 at 1:10 pm

    Chevra:
    There is such a theory however there is strong evidence to say otherwise. Regardless, I have spent many hours discussing the Rebbe with Reb Yitzchok (Adam) Friedman. Reb Yitzchok is the Rebbe’s grandson and an historian. At his request I am asking that there be no further discussion regarding the Rebbe’s untimely passing on this forum.
    Your understanding is appreciated,
    Baruch

  • 9 Azi // Nov 26, 2009 at 4:47 pm

    Please provide an example of the strong evidence that says otherwise. That would be the best way to stop the discussion.

    We had a Minyan Yesterday at the Rebbes Zion a day after his Yahrtziet, Thanks to Rabbi Baruch Amsel for raising awarness on this topic.

    The red cloth on the Kever is simply taken from a Paroches of an Aron Kodesh, the only inscribing is on the wall which is hard to read (the room is dark and lighted at all, just sun-light coming from the small window).

    I think it would be proper from the descendants to redo the Ohel and the Matzieve in honor of the Sadigere-Rimanover Rebbe who ended his young life in such a tragic fashion.

  • 19 joshua riber // Jul 29, 2011 at 5:15 am

    slight mistake – they came from zablotov to ny which is where they made aliya from – also my aunt Miriam Rieber Becher settled in Rishon where she is buried. Her children are Chaya Dahan in Tel Aviv, Reuven, near Zova, and Yonah in New Jersey

  • 20 Cheskel // Sep 8, 2011 at 6:00 pm

    Joshua Riber,
    What are the names of your grandmother Chayas parents?
    Her fathers name at least should be engraved on her tombstone.

    Dear Yehoshua Ribrer,

    The following is a discription of this Rav Mendel Chodorov in Kvorim.org:

    Rebbe Menachem Dovid Chodorov
    Tolna Vizhnitz Rebbe
    d. 11 Adar, 1980
    The Rebbe was a grandson of Rebbe Baruch of Vizhnitz the Imrei Baruch.

    He wasn’t just a friend of your parents he was mishpacha also.

  • 24 JOSHUA RIBER // Feb 20, 2012 at 7:10 am

    HOW WAS THE rEBBE , MENACHEM DOVID CHODOROV MISHPACHA?

  • 25 Tattale // Nov 25, 2012 at 2:33 am

    Joshua Riber: R’ Menachem Dovid Chodorov Ztz”l was the son of R’ Mottale Chodorov who was the S-I-L of R’ Boruch’l Viznitzer, the son of R’ Mendele Viznitzer. He was the brother of R’ dovid’l M’zobiltov. Obviously your grand father was an einikel od R’ dovid.

  • 26 Moshe // Nov 28, 2012 at 11:11 pm

    Tattale, any stories of yeshuos that are attributed to the Rebbe?

  • 27 yehoshua riber // Feb 11, 2013 at 12:28 pm

    still dont understand how my grandfather, meir leib rieber, married to my grandmother chaya hager rieber was einekel thanks

  • 28 Tattale // Mar 3, 2013 at 4:22 am

    Yehoshua Riber:

    R’ Dovid Hager Of Zabiltov had a big dynasty of Zabiltover rebbes after him. According to your description it’s obvious that your grandmother Chaya was a descendent of the Zabiltover Hagers. Do some research on that sidec of the Hager family.

  • 33 Ilanith // Nov 25, 2014 at 11:36 pm

    Joshua –
    The first Hager Rebbe of Zabaltov was Reb Dovid of Zabaltov. He was the son of Rebbe Menachem Mendel of Kosov. It is possible that your grandmother descended from this Rebbe. The Chodorov connection could then have been that Rebbe Mordechai of Chodorov ( I am assuming that this is the M Chodorov that you referred to) was a son-in-law to the Imrei Baruch who was married to the great great granddaughter of Rebbe Menachem Mendel of Kosov, the brother of Rebbe Dovid of Zabaltov. If your grandmother was indeed a descendent of Rebbe Dovid of Zabaltov, then a Rebbe such as Rebbe Mordechai would most certainly have appreciated this connection.

  • 34 S Ziskind // Dec 3, 2014 at 10:16 am

    I read about the Sadigora Rimonov Rebbe on Chinuch.org and upon learning he was nifter in the US of course came right here to find out more. Thank you again, for this website.
