Detail Description

Hasidic homiles bt the first Lisker Rebbe, R. Tzvi Hersh Friedman (Frishman; 1808-1874), also known as Hershel Lisker, lived a very frugal life. He was born Tzvi Hersh Frishman, but changed his last name to Friedman to avoid being drafted to the army. Even though the community enjoyed great prosperity, he would not allow its leaders to raise his salary from one forint, which he received when first appointed to the position. He was a disciple of the Divrei Chaim of Zanz. His Torah sayings are collected in Ach Pri Tevuah (Hebrew: אך פרי תבואה‎) and Hayoshor veHatov (Hebrew: הישר והטוב) (2 vols).

The money that he accrued from the people coming to seek his advice was distributed to the poor and to further the various programs he instituted. For himself he built a humble home so as to accommodate the multitude of people who came to see him and ask his advice.

Among his major accomplishments was the building of the synagogue. The synagogue was built in a grandiose manner and able to accommodate 500 people. It was one of the largest of his time in Hungary. The Synagogue was built without a foundation to commemorate the Destruction of the Temple — as a testimony to the temporary state of the Diaspora.

To the community and his followers he left the following dictum: "Rely on the ancient tradition, to observe and uphold the conservative life-style, to hand it down from generation to generation."

The passing of R. Tzvi Hersh Friedman (Frishman) in 1874 heralded the end of prosperity in the Jewish community of Liske. To this day, on the day of his yahrzeit, the 14th day of Av, thousands still converge to pray at his grave.
