Lineage[edit]

The founder of the dynasty, Rabbi Meshulam Zusha of Hanipol or Meshulum Zusil of Anipoli,[1] was an outstanding disciple of Maggid of Mezritch, who was a disciple of the Baal Shem Tov, the founder of Hasidism. He was also the brother of Rebbe Elimelech of Lizhensk.[2]

  • Rabbi Meshulam Zusha of Hanipol (1718–1800) - settled in Hanipol and Ḥasidim gathered around him; this circle grew after his brother Elimelech's death, when some of the Elimelech's Ḥasidim accepted Zusha as their rebbe.
    • Menahem Zvi Hirsh, his oldest son succeeded him in Hanipol.
    • Israel Abraham (1772–1814), his youngest son, served as ḥasidic rabbi and admor in Chernyostrov. After Israel Abraham's death, his wife led the Ḥasidim for several years.
