About Rabbi Gawryel Dancyger, ABD Przytyk and Radom

This is an excerpt from Yizkor Book of Radom on brief biography of Rabbi Gavriel Danziger:

“The Danziger family was among the oldest and renowned in Poland. Starting with Rabbi Shraga Feivel, the Rav of the towns of Sherpz, Gombin, Gritza and Makow, where his son became Rebbe. This Rebbe Reb Yechiel Danziger was the one who established the Aleksander Rabbinic [Hassidic] dynasty. The name Danziger was chosen by Reb Hirsh [Tzvi] of Warsaw. Our Rav, Rav Gavriel, was his 3rd son.

With his nephew Reb Yechiel, the Aleksander Rebbe, in his youth he had correspondence [with other rabbinic authorities] and collected and printed a Sefer or responsa on the topic of "Get", or Gittin [rabbinic divorce], Kiddushin, Chalitza and Bechoros.

The Aleksander Rebbe liked and strongly admired his uncle, the Gaon Reb Gavriel and used to write about him: "The words of my uncle, may he live, the genius in Torah, which were said short and to the point, are few in quantity but much in quality, and I ponder them greatly, as much as I do in the works of our Sages".

Rav Gavriel was a disciple of the Vorker Rebbe and was the Rav in Radom between 1857 and 1868. His son Mendel was a "baal habos" in Radom, yet a learned man with a sharp mind. He was one of the most important Gerrer Chassidim. Rav Gavriel's daughter married the Dayan Rabbi Aaron Middelman.”
