Rabbi Nachman of Horodenka was a Hasidic leader
A disciple of the Baal Shem Tov.
Rabbi Nachman of Horodenka was a Hasidic leader.
At first, Rabbi Nachman was among the Talmidei Chachamim who gathered to study Torah in Brody. After experiencing a dream which he interpreted as a signal for him to go to the Baal Shem Tov, Rabbi Nachman became a close disciple and one of the first supporters of the latter.
After marrying off his son to the granddaughter of the Baal Shem Tov, he moved to the Land of Israel, arriving at the port of Haifa in 1764. At first he lived in Safed, and afterward he settled in Tiberias. He died in Tiberias in June, 1765, and was buried in Tiberias.
Rabbi Nachman was a seventh-generation lineal descendant of Rabbi Judah Loew ben Bezalel. His grandson was Rabbi Nachman of Breslov.
May the merit of the tzadik Rabbi Nachman of Horodenka protect us all. Amen
