cc 1840 - 1904

Rav Chaim Friedlander of Liska (1840-1904). Born in Klienverdan, Hungary, he was a sixth generation descendant of the Maharsha, as well as a descendent the Maharal miPrague, the Taz, the Bach, the Shelah Hakodesh, and the Baal Smichos Chachamim. He married the third daughter of the first Liska Rebbe, Rav Tzvi Hersh, the Ach Pri Tevuah. He was chosen to be Rav of Erdobenye, then Dayan in Liska. When his father-in-law was niftar in 1874, Rav Chaim succeeded him. Liska is located in the hills of the Tokay region of Hungary. In 1904, Rav Chaim tragically choked on a piece of fish. He was succeeded by his son, Rav Tzvi Hersh, the Baal Shaarei Hayasher (a sefer on Tehillim). He and most of his family perished during the Holocauset. His son, Rav Yosef Friedlander, author of Tzvi V’Chammid, resurrected the Liska court and transplanted it in Boro Park. He was niftar in 1971 and was succeeded by his son, Rav Tzvi Hersh Friedlander, author of Chamudei Tzvi.
