די מומע צילא

Tzila Schneersohn, wife of R' Ben-Zion, who was the brother-in-law of the Frierdige Rebbe passed away Thursday night. Who she was from home I do not know, but her husband's Yichus is simple.

He was the son of HaRav Avrohom Schneersohn of Kishinev, son of HaRaHa"K R' Yisroel Noach of Niezhin, son of the Tzemach Tzedek, N"E, who wrote the Tshuves of his father. RAS attended the Rebbe's wedding in Warsaw, in 5689.

RBZS was a Talmid of YTT in Lubavitch and lived in Tel Aviv after the WWII, working as a bookkeeper. He passed away in 5736. He's pictured here a BarMitzvah celebration in Israel.

He had no children. I thought he was a talmid in the famous yeshiva of Rav YL Zirelsohn in Kishinev. See the Hebrew sefer HaYeshiva MiKishinev where one can evn find a picture of him .
