Reb Yisrael Aryeh Leib Schneerson (1909-1951)

The brother of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Reb Yisrael Aryeh Leib Schneerson was a child prodigy and maintained a life-long intense yearning for study. Coupled with his phenomenal memory, he was known for his unique insight in Torah as well as math theory.

With the spread of Communism, the Rebbe’s brother moved to Berlin, Germany, and subsequently to the Holy Land in the early 1930s. Reb Aryeh Leib passed away while pursuing his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics at the University of Liverpool, England, and was returned to his beloved homeland to be buried in the Chabad section of the ancient cemetery of Safed.
