About R' Yonah Leib (Aryeh) Mendelson (Lobel)

Talmid of Chasam Sofer. In 1836 made 'Aliya' from Pressburg to Yerushalayim (was ill with typhus and Chasam Sofer gave him Brocha that if he recovers he should move to Yerushalayim). Made Aliya when he was 20 years old. Lived in Yerushalayim for approx 50 years. One of important founders of Kollel Shomrei HaChomoth (established 1858) and Kollel Ungarin (Hungary). Other important members of Kollel Shomrei HaChomoth were R' Moshe Hamberger and R' Shlomo Elbe both of whom subsequently made shidduchim with R' Yonah Leib's decendants (Shlomo Elbe with .........). R' Yonah Leib changed the family name from Mendelson to Lobel (Lebel) so as not to be associated with Moses Mendelson.. Traced roots back to Rashi.

Note on Date of Death: I have found May 6, 1886 (1 Iyar 5646) in a Sefer. However, another source lists it as May 4, 1886 (29 Nisan 5646).
