R. Solomon Benzion b. Mesullem Zusia Twersky of Chernobyl (1870-1940), suceeded his father in the revered Chassidic dynasty of Chernobyl at the young age of 13. He was a grandson of R. Aaron who was educated by his grandfather, R. Menahem Nahum, the founder of the dynasty. Thousands of admiring hasidim flocked to the Chernobyler Rebbes. R. Aaron was confident of his spiritual abilities and holiness; he once wrote in a letter: "Even if they [his hasidim] live as long as Methusaleh they will never realize even a thousandth part of the good I - with G-d's help - have bestowed on them." He was convinced that the Messiah would come in his lifetime. He headed the Volhynia kolel in support of settlement in Erez Israel.
