    Your site is very interesting, thanks.

    The familyname of the Stretiner Rebbe was “Langner” and not “Langer”.

    אני בא עוד שבועיים לארה”ב, אני רוצה לבקר בקברו,
    הוא קבור ליד לייקווד?
    אם כן איפה בדיוק?
    והאם יש לך תמונה של הקבר?

  • 13 Robin // Oct 14, 2010 at 6:02 am

    Hi Yossi,
    This is so wonderful. I went to your website. I do not read hebrew (except for prayers) Is there a way to convert into english?

  • 14 Farshlufen // Oct 14, 2010 at 9:02 am

    Robin, translate it by google:|en|
    paste the url in the text box and press enter.

  • 15 robin // Oct 14, 2010 at 1:40 pm

    thank you so much. What state is everyone living in? What is the relation to the Streitner Rebbe and the Langner family?
    One of his daughters is still alive – the last one remaining.

  • 16 curios // Oct 14, 2010 at 6:14 pm

    Robin: Yossi Finkel lives in Israel – hence the poor English.
    His mother is the daughter of Rabbi Shlomo Gelbman.

  • 17 robin // Oct 15, 2010 at 3:52 pm

    I have to ask my mother and my uncle-the name doesn’t sound familiar. I know my grandmother had brothers that did not make it to the States and their families went directly to Israel.
    What is your relation? I am more familiar with the names of the 2nd and 3rd generation. My mother and uncle (her brother) would know the older generation.

    Am doing research on the Lower East Side and Rov Uri Langner’s E. 4th Street Shul. Do any of the family remember it and how Rov Langner felt about it? He moved there in 1922. Please contact me with any information. He is the grandson of the Stretiner; his father was Rov Arumtsche, whose father was Rov Yehuda Tzvi.

  • 19 curios // Oct 17, 2010 at 8:57 am

    Rabbi Gellman (not Gelbman – sorry about the mistake above) lived in Laurence NY. His wife was a Langner.

  • 20 Mishpacha // Oct 19, 2010 at 11:17 am

    “One of his daughters is still alive – the last one remaining”

    He has a daughter ca. 99 years old still living in the Bronx. She has 4 children (3 living).

  • 21 Aharon // Jun 21, 2011 at 10:20 am

    I am the great-grandson of the Stretner Rebbe. I went to visit his kever yesterday. My family & I were at the cemetery for the levaya of Chaya Esther, who was his last surviving daughter. She was 100 years old and had great-great grandchildren.

  • 22 m // Dec 13, 2011 at 4:17 pm

    is there somewhere i could read a bio?

  • 23 Rosh Haqohol // Jul 8, 2012 at 4:16 pm

    I was just here today, in advance of his upcoming yohrtzeit. May he be a meilitz yosher for all of Klal Yisroel.

  • 24 Yosi Berger // Sep 11, 2012 at 8:40 pm

    The rebetzin, rivka raizel was mothers fathers sister. Anyone out there from her side of the family or know about her etc. ????

  • 25 Chaim // Apr 4, 2013 at 4:02 pm

    My mother’s kever is not far from the ohel. I was at the Ohel today for the first time. I understand that he left a will that stipulates that one who is need of a shidduch or other assistance will be helped if he visits his kever.

    The Ohel is not in great shape. The family whose comments are noted above might wish to fix it up a bit.

  • 26 moshe // Jun 30, 2013 at 3:03 pm

    I was today at the ohel and saw a nice poster that there is a plan to reprint his sefer קן צפור on Tehilim, which is a wonderful sefer, and the bigest בעלי מקובלים speak very highly about it.
    The great zchus of this tzadik will defiantly be מגין for those who help to republish it.

  • 27 yitzchok moskowitz // Nov 13, 2013 at 5:02 pm

    Greetings to all,
    I am the granddaughter of Rabbi Yitzchok Isaac Langner. My mother (Chaya) Esther was the last surviving child of the 10 children of the Stretiner Rebbe. She passed away in June of 2011 at the age of 100 and is buried at the same site alongside her three sisters, Feiga (Seiden), Toby (Bock) and Ida(Brown). The Rebbitzen is buried alongside the Rebbe in the same Kever. It is gratifying to see the regard and respect with which the Rebbe was and continues to be held. May he continue to be a Mailitz Yosher for all.

  • 30 Yehuda Tzvi Goldschein // Sep 6, 2014 at 11:02 pm

    I am the great great grandson of R Yitzchak Isaac

  • 31 Chaim // Oct 6, 2014 at 2:20 pm

    I was at the ohel on the first day of selichos. It was in bad shape. Looks like there was a fire in the ohel. I hope the family makes repairs. I like to stop there every time I come to my mother nearby.

  • 32 Yosi Berger // Mar 2, 2015 at 7:13 pm

    i am a great nephew, albeit from the Rebitzin (nee Lowey) from the Tosher dynasty.
    Are there any others that are related through the Rebitzin?

  • 33 Josh // Jul 5, 2015 at 10:49 am

    I am not a relative but my grandfather Jesse Eisen was a follower of the Stretiner Rebbe and in the 1930s/1940s the Rebbe would visit and come for Shabbat while my grandfather lived in Hoboken, NJ. My mother has some stories about these visits that I have heard for years. But for clarification, is there more than one Stretiner Rebbe from this time period?

  • 34 yitzchok moskowitz // May 16, 2016 at 5:56 pm

    regarding josh I would like to hear about the stories that your mother knows about the Strettiner Rebbe.

    In the 1940s the rebbe had one surviving brother which was my great-great grandfather the strettiner rebbe from Toronto reb moshe langner.

    regarding the ohel from the rebbe it is I that undertakes every year a large tent with refreshments and I can say that about a few hundred people come out every year, it is a question of time till it becomes a mass transit place for yeshuos I see and hear every year numerous stories about people that wear helped in the zechus of this tzaddik.

    the ohel keeps on getting fixed we are working on building a new one we will need funds hopefully the grandchildren can help to it is a big zechus.

    we are starting with plans for this rears yartziet.

  • 35 Moshe Wasserman // Jul 1, 2016 at 4:02 am

    Hi, my family remembers having familial ties with the stretiner family. We know to be cousins with the Langner, Meth, Brandwein, families. In Europe, my 4th great grandfather Itche Meyer was learning under the Stretiner Rebbe and he was his prized student. The Stretiner Rebbe married off Itche Meyer to his wifes sister named Fulya. Fulya’s daughter was Chana and married Moshe Kohn. They had daughter named Aidel married to Elchanon (Henry) Goldentyer. Aidel had 4 daughter named Yetta Hiesiger, Henya Aberbach, Fulya Schimmel, and Sima Breina. (With marked names) For all of their marriages, the mesader kiddushin was Rav Yitzchak Isaac Langner. On one of the marriage certificates Rabbi Yitzchak Isaac Langer Rabbi Meth, and Rabbi Roth signed it.

    What I am searching for is how exactly my family is related to this family.

    Please let me know if any of this rings a bell or if you think you can help me.

    Today is the Yartzeiet, 22 Tamuzz.


  • 37 Chaim // Jul 28, 2016 at 9:57 am

    Does anyone have a link to his sefer, Kan Tzipor on Tehillim?

    I looked in but could not find it.

    Thank you.

  • 38 ezb // Jul 31, 2016 at 7:29 pm

    The Sefer is Kabalistic. A copy is at his Kever for using, not taking. It is sold at his Kever on the Yahrzeit. A copy can be seen in Kosoner Bais Hamedrash and many others in Brooklyn, NY.

  • 39 Yossi Finkel // Aug 1, 2016 at 4:06 am

    I don’t think that the book ken tzipor is online anywhere.
    It should be in chasidik bookshops.
    They just published a new version (By HERMAN SCHWARTZ).


  • 40 Hershy kraus // Jun 4, 2018 at 3:16 pm

  • 41 Dana // Apr 29, 2019 at 12:06 am

    I am the great great granddaughter of the rebbe. His daughter Frances (Faiga) Seiden is my grandfather’s (Aaron Seiden) mother. My grandfather is 93 and living in Baltimore. His son, Richard Seiden, is my father. Faiga’s daughter, Lilian, is about 87? And lives in New Jersey.
