I'm hoping someone will translate to English or Hebrew and send me, so I can fill in at Geni.

Hasidic Leadership in Pre-1940s Canada Rabbi Moshe Langner of Kozowa-Strettin (1878-1945) can be considered the “godfather” of Canadian Hasidism since most Canadian Hasidic leaders either followed him to Canada or married into his family. He was born in Brotchin, Galicia to Rabbi Yehuda Tzvi and Gittel Leah of Strettin. He married the daughter of Rabbi Shalom Babad and served as a rebbe in several places in Galicia, including Lvov and Kozowa. After his father’s death in 1907, he became the Strettiner rebbe in Strettin itself, and in 1920, he settled in Toronto, where he served as spiritual leader of the Kiever, Shaarei Tzedec, and the First Narayever Congregations. In 1925, his oldest son, Mordechai (1897-1948), was chosen as rabbi of Congregation Beth Israel and served there until his death. The next oldest son, Shlomo (1900—1973) came to Toronto in 1923 and served as rabbi in several synagogues including Anshe Galitzia and Rodfei Shalom. After Moshe’s death, the position of the rebbe of Strettin-Toronto was filled by Mordechai and after his death by Shlomo, who served as rebbe for almost thirty years. The Langners’ other children were Yitzchak Isaac (1906-1980), Tzipporah, and Sarah. On 27 February 1945, an announcement in the local Yiddish press notes that the “ Admor HaTzaddik Reb Moshe Langner, Shlita, the Strettiner Rebbe,” is back in town and “invites the community to stop by his home at 42 Cecil Street, corner Huron for a joyous Purim celebration.” Not only did Langner and his two sons serve as rebbes in Toronto, but both of his daughters married Hasidic leaders, one a rebbe of the Twersky family, another a scion of the Olesk, Ropshitz, and Belz dynasties; his grandchildren served in rabbinic positions in New York.
