Biography[edit]

Some information in the biography paragraph is wrong. In order to be able to redeem anything valuable from it; I'm dumping it here and removing the words iin question.

Auerbach descended from an illustrious line of Hasidic leaders. His father was Rabbi Avraham Dov Auerbach (I), the Admor of Chernowitz-Chmielnik, Poland. His mother was the daughter of Rabbi Tzvi Halberstam, who was a son of Rabbi Chaim Halberstam (the Divrei Chaim) and a son-in-law of Rabbi Jacob Joseph of Polonne, the Baal Shem Tov's most prominent disciple and author of Toldos Yaakov Yosef on Hasidic thought.

Auerbach married Tzivia, the daughter of Jerusalem community leader Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Porush (1850-1898), who listed among his accomplishments the founding of the neighborhood of Shaarei Chesed and the creation of the Shaarei Chesed Free-Loan Fund, which he directed on a voluntary basis for 18 years.

Hi, Itzse. What is your source for saying the original info was wrong? I took it out of Artscroll's "Voice of Truth". Kol tuv, Yoninah (talk) 10:54, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
