Description
   Letter by R. Abraham Issachar b. Isaiah Englard (1910-2005), Admor of Radzin, son-in-law of the Tiferet Yosef. He was born in Sosnoweicz where his father was rabbi. He married the daughter of R. Samuel Solomon Leiner of Radzin. After the Holocaust he came to New York where he led a synagogue with many hasidim for several years. He was crowned as successor of the Izhbitza-Radziner Dynasty in 1954 upon the last will of his illustrious father-in-law and by Radziner Hasidim in Erez Israel and worldwide and moved to Bnei Berak. Under his leadership, the Izhbitzer-Radziner Dynasty rebuilt itself, with the Center of Radziner Institutions being established in Bnei Berak. The Rebbe also established Radziner Shuls (known as Shtieblech) in many cities where Radziner Hasidim were concentrated. This includes Jerusalem, Haifa, Netanya, Tel Aviv, Holon and Petah Tikva. The Rebbe also established the Radziner Yeshiva Sod Y'sharim in Jerusalem, the Radziner Yeshiva Ateres Shlomo in Bnei Brak, the Radziner Yeshiva Tiferes Yosef in Bnei Berak, with many Kollelim located in Jerusalem, Bnei Berak, and Haifa.
