   Eulogy for R. Issachar Dov Roke'ah (1854–1927), Hasidic Rebbe of Belz. One of the most important hasidic dynasties of Galicia, so called after the township where it took up residence. R. Issachar Dov was greatly influenced by R. Aaron of Chernobyl although R. Aaron taught a form of Hasidism that differed radically from that of the Belz school. R. Issachar Dov was an exacting leader of Galician Orthodoxy and also headed the Mahazikei ha-Dat. In particular he opposed the Agudat Israel and denounced any innovations. He strongly opposed Zionism in any form. In 1914, when the war front reached Belz, he fled to Hungary and lived in Ujfeherto where he succeeded in winning many Hungarian Jews to Belz Hasidism. In 1918 he moved to Mukacevo and became embroiled in a bitter quarrel with the zaddik of Munkacs which gave rise to a voluminous exchange of polemics. In 1921 R. Issachar Dov returned to Galicia and settled first in Holschitz, near Jaroslaw, moving back to Belz in 1925.
