About Rabbi Avraham Mi'Slonim "Yesod HaAvodah" Weinberg

Slonim is a Hasidic dynasty originating in the town of Slonim, which is now in Belarus. Today, there are two Slonimer Rebbes, both in Israel. One in Jerusalem and the other in Bnei Brak. Colloquially, the Jerusalem side is called the "White" side and the Bnei Brak side is called the "Black" side, a reference to their political leanings, white meaning more liberal and black meaning more conservative in Haredi parlance. These names can also be attributed to the fact that when Slonim chasidim split into separate factions, the leader of one, Rabbi Sholom Noach Berezovski, had a white beard and the leader of the other, Rabbi Avraham Weinberg, had a black beard.

They are distinguished by different Hebrew spellings, the Jerusalem sect being known as סלונים and the Bnei Brak sect being known as סלאנים. They are two distinct groups today and have many differences between them.
