About R' Chanoch Henoch Bornstein, 4th Sochatchover Rebbe

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chanoch_Henoch_Bornsztain

Chanoch was the second son of Rabbi Shmuel Bornsztain, the second Sochatchover Rebbe, and his wife, Yuta Leah. He grew up in the presence of his illustrious grandfather, Rabbi Avrohom Bornsztain, also known as the Avnei Nezer, who founded the Sochatchover dynasty.

In 1924, Rabbi Chanoch accompanied his brother Rabbi Dovid to Palestine for the purpose of purchasing land. Rabbi Dovid put a down payment on a site south of Ramla. Upon his return to Poland, however, his efforts to collect the remainder of the money were stymied by Polish laws, and he lost his down payment as well as the right to the land.

Meanwhile, Rabbi Chanoch stayed in Jerusalem, living first in the Bucharim neighborhood and then settling in the new Bayit VeGan neighborhood, where he established a beth midrash (study hall).

Upon the death of their father in 1926, Rabbi Dovid acceded to the leadership of the Sochatchover Hasidim, while Rabbi Chanoch continued to live and study in Palestine.

After World War II, when Rabbi Chanoch heard about the death of his brother in the Warsaw Ghetto, he was inconsolable. Later, he accepted the request of the Sochatchover Hasidim to be their leader. He established his court in Jerusalem, preferring to remain in that city even during the 1948 Arab-Israeli war, when his followers in Tel Aviv urged him to join him there.[1]

Rabbi Chanoch led the Hasidut until his death on 23 September 1965 (26 Elul 5725). He is buried on Har HaMenuchot in Jerusalem.

His son, Rabbi Menachem Shlomo Bornsztain, succeeded him as Rebbe.
