The previous owner, R. Shlomo Hacohen of Radomsk (1795-1866), is known by the title of his famous work, the Tifereth Shlomo. A disciple of R. Fishel of Strykov and R. David of Lelov, he attracted followers from all walks of life. When R. Moshe of Lelov emigrated to Eretz Israel in 1850, he told his Chassidim to follow R. Shlomo of Radomsk. The Tifereth Shlomo’s son, R. Abraham Yissachar (1844-92) succeeded his father in preference to his older brothers. His discourses were printed under the title Chesed L’Avraham.
