Description
   R. Israel b. David Moses Friedman of Chortkov (1854–1934), succeeded by his father as Rebbe. He was named after his grandfater R. Israel of Ruzhin. He wrote Tiferet Yisrael (Husiatyn 1934) hassidic homilies, and was an outstanding leader of the Agudat Israel. After World War I he moved to Vienna. His father, fifth son of R. Israel of Ruzhin (1828–1900), author of Divrei David, was one of the greatest Zaddikim of his time. His center was first in Potek, but in 1859 he moved to Chortkov. His followers were the aristocracy of the Hasidim of Poland. R. Israel was succeeded in his turn by his son R. Nahum Mordecai (1874–1946) who settled in Erez Israel in 1939 where he became a member of the Mo'ezet Gedolei ha-Torah of the Agudat Israel. The last leader of the dynasty was his son R. Solomon (1894–1959).
