Description
   R. Jerahmeel Israel Joseph b. Isaac Menahem Mendel Danziger (1913–1942), was the son of the last Rebbe of Alexander. He had wide learning and a keen intellect, and was beloved by the Hasidim. He perished with his father in the concentration camp at Treblinka by the murderous Nazis.

The Aleksandrow (Danziger), dynasty of hasidic rabbis in Poland was active from the second half of the 19th century. Their "court" was at Aleksandrow Lodzki (Yid.: Alexander), a small town near Lodz. In contrast to the Hasidim of Gura-Kalwaria (Yid.: Ger), the Aleksandrow Hasidim generally did not take part in Jewish party politics in Poland.
