About Avraham Yaakov Friedman, 1st Rebbe of Sadigura

The Sadigura dynasty is a notable Hasidic dynasty. Sadagóra is important in the history of Hasidic Judaism. It had a significant Jewish community. It is one of the branches of the Ruzhiner dynasty.

The dynasty began with Rabbi Avrohom Yaakov Friedman of Sadigura, who was a son of the Rabbi Yisroel Friedman of Ruzhin, the founder of the Ruzhiner dynasty.

Rabbi Yisroel Friedman the Ruzhiner Rebbe, moved to Sadagóra in 1842. On the 3rd of Cheshvan 1851 the Rebbe of Rizhin died and was buried in Sadigora. His six sons all established Hasidic dynasties that includes: Sadigura, Boyan, Chortkov, Husyatin and Bohush.

Most of the Jews living in Sadhora during World War II were murdered by the Nazis during the Holocaust. Today, Sadigura Hasidism is centered around the present Sadigurer Rebbe's beis medrash in Bnei Brak, Israel.
