Naftali (also spelled NAFTULA[1]) Tzvi Labin of Zidichov (נפתלי צבי לאבין מזידיטשוב) (c. 1916 – March 6, 2009)[2] was the Zidichover Rebbe. He was born in Ziditshoiv, Galicia, which was then a province of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire, where this Hasidic group was first founded by Rabbi Tzvi Hirsh of Zidichov. He later replanted the movement in London, and then in Brooklyn, New York, and Monticello, New York.

Labin was very close to many rebbes of the previous generation, including Rabbi Yoel Teitelbaum of Satmar, Rabbi Aharon Rokeach of Belz, Rebbe Moshe Yitzchak Gevirtzman (Reb Itzikl) of Pshevorsk, and Rebbe Yaakov Leiser (Reb Yankele) of Pshevorsk.

Zidichov today[edit]

After the Rebbe of Ziditchov, Naftali Tzvi Labin, died, his son Rabbi Yeshaya Labin was crowned as Grand Rebbe of Ziditchov.


"If you listen to, and you do what and when evil wants you to do, evil owns you. If you say to evil ok I’ll do it, 'just let me have 5 minutes before doing it' you are still his friend, but he does not own you."[citation needed]
