Samuel, the Slonimer Rebbe, R. Kliers founded a yeshiva, Ohr Torah, at the grave-site of Reb Meir Baal ha-Ness on the shores of the Kineret. He was involved in community affairs and worked assiduously for the welfare and improvement of Tiberius Jewry.
R. Jacob Hai b. Baruch Zrehen (1869-1953) was born and passed on in Tiberias. A erudite rabbinical scholar, he is the author of several scholarly works. All works carry the approbations of Erez Israel's most notable Separdic and Ashkenazi rabbis. He served as Chief Rabbi of the Sephardim in Tiberias for many years.
