Chasidim of Radomsko

[Yiddish, Radomsker Chasidim] - A Chasidic group founded by Shlomo Cohen Rabinovitch (1801-66), who had attended the yeshiva in Piotrkow Trybunalski, and then studied with the tzaddik Meir of Opatow. In 1834, he became a rabbi in Radomsko, and from 1843 was a tzaddik, becoming one of the most popular in central Poland.
He was the author of Tiferet Shlomo [Hebrew, Beauty of Solomon, 1867-69], published posthumously, and also composed Chasidic music. His son Abraham Isachar Dov (1843-92) perpetuated his teachings, and was the author of Chesed le-Avraham [Hebrew, the Mercy of Abraham, 1893-95). He was followed by Shlomo's grandson, Yechezkel (1864-1910), the author of Kneset Yecheskel [Hebrew, Gathering of Ezechiel, 1913]. The last of the dynasty, Shlomo Henoch (?-1942), founded the Keter Tora [Hebrew, The Torah's Crown] network of yeshivas and a beit midrash in Sosnowiec. He was killed along with his family in the Warsaw ghetto.
After the war, this dynasty's followers joined the Chasidim of Gora Kalwaria, commemorating the last tzaddik of Radomsko by founding a Keter Tora yeshiva in Bnei Brak, the Chasidic quarter of Tel Aviv.
