Rav Tzvi Hirsch , one of  the leading Chassidic rebbes of Hungary, was the son of a tzaddik nistar – hidden tzaddik – Rabbi Aaron of Ujhel. After studying Torah with Rabbi Tzvi Hirsh of  Bonyhad, he spent several  years at the chassidic court of Rabbi Moshe of Ujhel, the Yismach Moshe who played a dominant role in shaping his life eventually facilitating him as Rav in Liska. Upon the Yismach Moshe’s histalkus R’ Tzvi Hirsh established himself as Rebbe in Liska.  He also journeyed to other great chassidic masters of his time, such as R’ Yisrael of Rizhin, R’ Meir of Premyshlan, R’ Shalom of Belz, & the Divrei Chaim of Sanz.  As a result, thousands of Chasidim converged on the newly founded Chassidic center, eager to bask in the holiness & warmth of the Liska Rebbe’s benevolence, to be inspired by his Torah insights and particpate at their Rebbe’s tish

His descendant, the Liska Rebbe, Rabbi Yoizef Friedlander, survived the Holocaust and then settled in Boro Park Brooklyn, New York, where he established his keliah Ateres Tzvi that perpetuates Lisker Chassidus. 

His son, the above mentioned Rebbe will conduct the traditional tisch with the participation of numerous yedidim L’bais Liska, decendants of Admorei Liska who will hear Bezras Hashem be zocha to hear divrei Torah from the Liska Rebbe Shlita.
