Married Rebbetzin Yenta Devorah, a granddaughter of Rabbi Zusha of Hanipol and Rabbi Wolf of Tcherni-Ostrah. Following his father’s death in 1837 he began to serve as a rebbe in Vosilkov next to Kiev. After he moved to Tolna his court grew and thousands of chassidim flocked to him. Rabbi David, like his father, used to travel from village to village to encourage the masses. In his travels he visited Odessa twice. Odessa was a city of followers of the Enlightenment. Chassidic tradition relates that during his trips there many followers of the Enlightenment became firm believers.
