I've been seeing videos and things everywhere with this rebbe who I've never heard of before named the Veretzky Rebbe. Seems he's been popping up over the past six or so months especially, and I used to live in Monsey in chussidville and I've never heard of him. I don't want any loshon horo here, just stam information about him and his chassidis.

    Whoever he is, most likely his ancestors are from Nyzhni Vorota and he is no doubt related to the late Rav Aron Tzvi Landau ztz''l, also known as the Veretzkier Rov.

  • @mbloch Eh, maybe not. I still don't know exactly who the Veretzky Rebbe is. But here is an article about him and a discussion about him as well. Not to mention this question is off-topic, as it is about a Jewish individual, which is clearly against our site policy.

  • He's in Bnei Brak, not Brooklyn.

  • Ah, I'm sorry. I must've missed that. I figured this came under community as it's about a rebbe rather than just any other Yid

  • @yyb896 Yup, that's why I said he must be related to the Veretzkier Rov, who lives in Lakewood I believe.

1 Answer 1


The Veretzky Rebbe you speak of is Rabbi Yitzchak Isaac Labin of Bnei Brak. His father is Rabbi Naftali Tzvi Labin of Ziditchov. They are both descendants of Rabbi Yissachar Berish Eichenstein of Veretsky, author of Malbush L'Shabbos V'Yom Tov.

Additionally, Veretsky is the Yiddish name for the town of Nyzhni Vorota in Ukraine, as you can see from this article from the Yiddish Wikipedia titled ווערעצקי.
