Zlotshov is the name of a Hasidic dynasty founded by Rebbe Yechiel Michel (died 1786), a disciple of the Baal Shem Tov, the founder of Hasidism. Zlotshov is the Yiddish name of Zolochiv, a town in present-day Ukraine. Yechiel Mechel's five sons all founded their own branches of the Zlotshov dynasty. Descendant dynasties include the Zvhil, Skolye, Zvhil-Mezhbizh and Shotz dynasties.
Rabbi Yechiel Michel Michlowitz (from Michalovce), known as the Zlotshover Rebbe of Netanya (died January 13, 2015), claimed descent from the dynasty's founder, but his exact lineage is unknown.
