The homes of R’ Yisroel Aryeh Leib Schneerson, the Rebbe‘s brother, in Tel Aviv, Eretz Yisroel, and in Liverpool, England, were visited by chassidim before and on his yahrzeit.
R’ Yisroel Aryeh Leib immigrated to Eretz Yisroel in the summer of 5693 (1933), from Berlin, Germany, where he had moved in 5691 (1931). While in Eretz Yisroel, R’ Yisroel Aryeh Leib worked as a librarian and later opened a clothing store. He kept in close touch with the Chabad Community in Tel-Aviv and especially Rabbi Nochum Goldschmidt, his cheder classmate.
He later moved to Liverpool, England in 5710 (1950) to join the Department of Theoretical Physics at the University of Liverpool. He passed away two years later on 13 Iyar 5712 (1952).
Ahead of his 71st yahrzeit on 13 Iyar, Rabbi Chaim Dalfin visited the Tel Aviv location of his home and filmed the location, as well as the location of the clothing store where he worked. On the day of the yahrzeit, Mendel Tzikashvili visited the home and store, as well as the location where the ‘Nachalas Binyomim’ shul, where R’ Yisroel Aryeh Leib farbrenged with fellow chassidim, once stood.
In Liverpool, shluchim Rabbi Moshe Eliezer Liberow of Colorado Springs, CO, who is on a visit to England, joined his brother Rabbi Sholom Dovber Liberow of Manchester, UK, and father Rabbi Sender Liberow, Rov of Adass Yisroel – Nusach Ari Shul in Manchester, UK, on a visit to the former home of R’ Yisrael Aryeh Leib Schneerson located at 56 Croxteth Rd, Toxteth, Liverpool, UK in honor of his yartzeit being commemorated on Thursday.
And in Berlin, Germany, shluchim Rabbi Yehuda Teichtal and Rabbi Mendel Brandwine visited the Berlin address where R’ Yisroel Aryeh Leib lived. In a letter from 1935, the Frierdiker Rebbe asked that a visa be arranged for him to help escape the Nazis, who had then risen to power. In the letter, the Frierdiker Rebbe records the address, where the shluchim today visited.
