There are currently two rebbes, whose courts are located in Borough Park, Brooklyn, New York and in Jerusalem, Israel. The rebbe in Jerusalem is a nephew of the one in Borough Park, since the previous rebbe in Israel died in 2004, and his son took over his mantle of leadership in Israel.
Rachmastrivka is one of the larger Hasidic groups. The two rebbes had a close relationship with no tension between them. This has continued into the next generation; the new rebbe in Jerusalem visited New York on September 14, 2006 and stayed with his uncle.
Rebbe Yochanan Twersky, founder of the Rachmastrivka dynsasty, was the youngest son of the Chernobler Maggid, Rebbe Mordechai Twersky. Rebbe Mordechai's father, Rebbe Menachem Nahum Twersky of Chernobyl (author of Meor Einayim), was a - disciple of the Baal Shem Tov, the founder of Hasidism.
Rebbe Yochanan Twersky of Rachmastrivka (1816-1895) – son of the Magid of Chernobyl.
Rebbe Duvid Twersky of Zlatipoli (d. 1915) – son of the Rebbe Yochanan of Rachmastrivka.
Rebbe Mordchai Yoseph of Zlatipoli (d. 1939) – only son of the Rebbe Duvid Twersky of Zlatipoli.
Rebbe Tzvi Aryeh of Zlatipoli - son of the Rebbe Mordchai Yoseph of Zlatipoli.
