If you look very closely, he has a VERY Unusual Eidelkait and Lichtigkait.

Baruch?

Baruch?

The alter rebbe had a son Baruch?

Beautiful but not 5th generation

Considering that the Alter Rebbe did not have a son named Boruch, the Zalman in his ancestry is an ainikel of the Alter Rebbe not the Alter Rebbe himself. That’s aside from the fact that it’s extremely unlikely for a 50 year old man to be a fifth generation from the Alter Rebbe. In all likelihood he’s a fifth generation of an ainikel of the Tzemach Tzedek, who was the first with the last name Schneersohn.

5th generation of the Alter Rebbe? Maybe 5th generation of another Zalman Schneersohn? There were quite a few.

Zalman is and was a common name in the Schneerson family. More likely he is 5th generation from the Rebbe Maharash’s Brother “Chaim Schneur Zalman” of Liadi.

sorry
Guest
sorry

doesn’t make sense that he is fifth generation from alter rebbe

So interesting!
Guest
So interesting!

May he connect deeply with his ancestors.

Can anyone explain how he is a descendent of the Alter Rebbe? The Alter Rebbe did not have a son named Baruch…

Is that lineage correct?

I don’t see how someone alive today could possible be 5th generation from the Alter Rebbe. Besides, the Alter Rebbe did not have a son Boruch.

What a touching story…!

According to the names provided cannot be 5th gen. from Alter Rebe

Alter Rebbe did not have son Boruch. By age does not come up well either.
The grandson of r.Yehuda Leib of Kopust was r.Zalman of Starodub. Maybe his son was Boruch.

This is a modern day miracle! Right in time for RH.

5th generation

5th generation

Most likely a 5th gen of the the Tzemach Tzedek’s son, R. Chaim SZ of Liadi who had a son Boruch. See intro to Hayom Yom

The tzemach tzedek was the first rebbe with the last name schneersohn, so he has to be a descendent of the tzemach tzedek

Yes the son of the Tzemach Tzedek, Chaim Schneur Zalman’s youngest son was Baruch. In the Hayom Yom he is called the Socher (merchant) of Smolensk, a city not far from Liadi and Lubavitch.

Why the need to focus on the detail 5th or 10th generation? There is so much positive in this story and such a valuable lesson to take.

Details are important.
The focus is not on 5th or 7th but on the accuracy of the story and the facts of who this man is actually descended from.

Focusing on details doesn’t take away from the positivity of the story.

5TH GENERATION???!!! That’s very far fetched. That means he’s 3 generations above the Rebbe. The Rebbe was 8. And I’m 10 generations. But it’s still likely he’s a descendant, although possibly through the Tzemach Tzedek, which is where Schneersohn came from, although there are other descendants who also use the name. Maybe he can be traced using sefer hatze’etzoim
