Solomon Halberstam (The First)
Solomon Halberstam was a Hasidic Judaism rebbe, or rabbi, who was the founder of the Bobov (Hasidic dynasty). He was a grandson of the Divrei Chaim, a Hasidic sage of the 19th century whose influence established the groundwork for many other Galician Hasidic movements.
Solomon Halberstam became an orphan at age 9, and stayed with his grandfather, the Divrei Chaim, for most of his early life. He later became the rabbi of Osweincen, Bikufsk, and Bobov. He died in the summer of 1905.
