The Admor Rabbi Yoel Moskowitz, son of the Admor Rabbi Meir of Shatz and grandson of the Admor Rabbi Yoel the First—founder of the dynasty—was the son-in-law and cousin of the Admor Rabbi Shalom of Shatz, London. Served in Manchester, Montreal, London, and Jerusalem. Died in 1980. Never led a whole Hassidic group—in London and Montreal he was a synagogue rabbi and a teacher to his community, but his followers treated him like an Admor and he dressed like one. He was known as a great researcher and he studied closely many writings of Chazal whose origins were unknown (see what the Gaon Rabbi Yitzhak Yeshayahu Weiss has to say about him—Yeshurun, vol. 21, p. 756).
The receiver, Rabbi Dov Sternbuch of Gateshead and Bnei Brak was the son of Rabbi Asher of London, a descendent of the Gra. He was a huge talmid chacham who knew the Shas by heart. He was close with many sages, and was a student of the Gra”a Dessler. He had a special relationship with Maran Rabbi Haim Kanievsky, who forbid him from asking those at his beit midrash not to stand in his honor. He was brother of the Ra’avad of Antwerp, Rabbi Eliyahu Sternbuch, and the Ra’avad of the Charedi community, Rabbi Moshe Sternbuch. Died in 1990 when he was on his way to Minchah, aged 96.
