It has been 43 years since the petirah of the previous Liska Rebbe, Rav Yoizef Friedlander zt”l, who was from the first admorim to settle in Boro Park in the immediate post war period.
A highly regarded Rav who symbolized the character traits of pre war Europe, the Liska Rebbe had a positive effect on all those that interacted with him. A rebbe who inspired good in everyone he interacted with; his avodah was legendary and was always conducted with the intention of following in his ancestors path the Rebbes of the Liska dynasty.
Unfortunately, he passed away at the young age of 52 and most of the current generation of Torah Jewry did not have the privilege of knowing this revered Rav of a bygone era.
His legacy is carried forth by his illustrious sons, the current Liska Rebbe, Rav Tzvi Hersh Friedlander Shlita and the Hivnover Rov, Rav Avrohom Yehoshua Heshel Friedlander.
