Detail Description

Biography of the first Rebbe of Chortkov, Rabbi Duvid Moshe Friedman (1828–1903), son of Rabbi Yisroel Friedman of Ruzhyn. He was born in 1828 on the festival of Shavuos. His first wife was the daughter of Rabbi Aaron Twerski of Chernobyl. His second wife was his first cousin, a daughter of his brother Rabbi Shalom Yosef Friedman of Sadigura. In 1865, 14 years after his father's death, he settled in Chortkov forming his own community there. His followers were one of the largest Hasidic groups in Galicia, numbering in the thousands. He led an ascetic life, secluding and preoccupying himself with study and prayer day and night. Although he preferred to detach himself from world affairs and distance himself from communal disputes, he was nevertheless considered a major leader of Central European Jewry. To this instance, he agreed to meet with Theodor Herzl who had sent him a personal letter hoping to garner his support for the Zionist Movement, although the meeting never materialized. His oldest son, Reb Nuchem Mordechai, died aged 21 in 1880. He passed on on Hoshana Rabbah, 1903, and was succeeded by his second son, Reb Yisroel. His teachings have been published in Divrei DovidBeis Yisroel and Knesset Yisroel.
