The Sanz Hasidic dynasty was founded by Rabbi Chaim Halberstam (1793-1876) Rabbi of Nowy Sącz (Sanz, Yiddish: צאנז Tsanz), author of "Divrei Chaim" and a son-in-law of Rabbi Baruch Frankel Teomim (1760-1828), Rabbi of Lipník and Bečvou, author of "Baruch Taam". His family documents claims they are descended via the Maharal of Prague from R. Yoseph I of Rome and then back to King David of Israel.

He had fourteen children and was antecedent to several Chassidic dynasties, e.g.: Bobov (USA), Sanz-Gribov (USA), Sanz-Gorlitz (USA), Sanz-Klausenburg (Israel, USA), Sanz-Zhmigrod (USA, Israel).

The main Hasidic works revered by the Sanz Dynasty are Divrei Chaim, by Rabbi Chaim Halberstam of Tsanz and Divrei Yechezkel by his son, Rabbi Yechezkel Shraga Halberstam

The goal of this project is to cleanup (merge and correct) these branches of the big Tree, and to encourage managers of private profiles on these branches to go public.
