This is the grave of Rabbi Meir HaGadol (the Great) of Premishlan ZT’L (of Blessed Memory) (1703—1763). He was one of the first disciples of Rabbi Yisroel Ba’al Shem Tov, ZT’L (1700—1760), founder of the Chassidic movement.



Registered Charity Number-TAX ID # 810902918


Rabbi Meyer Chaim Greenbaum

Board Director, Director of Development, & Administrative Asst' of R' Meir Premishlan's Hachnasas Orchim Development in Premishlan Ukraine

Rabbi Meir of Premishlan was the son of Rabbi Aharon Leib of Premishlan a descendent of great rabbis. Initially, Rabbi Meir was in business. Gentiles called him “Honest Meir.”

Rabbi Meir withdrew from his business efforts and devoted all his time to the study and teaching of Torah and chassidus. Despite his fame as a Chassidic Rebbe he referred to himself simply as Meir’l.


Your generous contribution will go a long way in helping all aspects of Reb Meir'ls Hachnasas Orchim Projects.

Premishlan (Przemyslany in Polish) was the seat of Rabbi Meir’s formidable holy work. The Polish name is what appears on documents and maps dating back before 1939, when Przemyslany and the entire Ukrainian province of Galicia (Halychyna/Galizien/Galicja) was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire (1772—1918) and then under Polish rule as it had been prior. In 1939, Przemyslany and all of Galicia was occupied by Soviet troops and incorporated into the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (as part of the Soviet Union), and as of 1991, independent Ukraine.


Reb Meir’l was known as a Baal Ruach HaKodesh someone who knows things through the Holy Spirit that is granted even in these days when we don't have prophets. He was also known as someone who would cause Heavenly help for people and many Jews flocked to him.

May the Al-mighty bless you and yours with good health, happiness, prosperity, contentment and continued success in all your endeavors.


He lived in absolute poverty, for he gave away all his money to the poor and downtrodden. At times he sold household necessities in order to give money to charity.

In his later years he moved to Mikolaev, and led his Chassidim from there. He was returned for buriel to Premishlan.

May your gift in the merit of the Righteous and Holy Rabbi Meir, May his Memory be for a Blessing, be Rewarded with All Good and Happiness for You and Your Loved Ones.


Rabbi Meir the Great was succeeded by his son, Rabbi Uren Aryeh Leib, zt’l (d. 1813) as Premishlaner Rebbe. Rabbi Uren Aryeh Leib was in turn succeeded by his son: Rabbi Meir (the second), zt’l (1783—1850) as Premishlaner Rebbe. He was widely known as a miracle-worker. Many waited upon him daily. His unassuming conduct endeared him to the masses.
Rabbi Meir the Second was succeeded by his son-in-law, Rabbi Zvi Hirsh Frankel-Teumin, zt’l (d. 1857). He was succeeded by his son Rabbi Yisroel Aryeh Leib Frankel-Teumin, zt’l (1830—1880), as Premishlaner Rebbe. He was a disciple of his grandfather, Rabbi Meir the Second.
Rabbi Yisroel Aryeh Leib Margulies, zt’l (1892—1956), was the grandson of Rabbi Yisroel Aryeh Leib Frankel-Teumin. In 1917, he was crowned Premishlaner Rebbe in Lvov. During WWI, he escaped to Budapest. From 1927, he resided in London and was involved heavily in helping the many war refugees.


The grave of Rabbi Meir the Great of Premishlan.

Presently, Rabbi Meir Rosenbaum serves as the Premishlaner Rebbe in Bnei Brak, and Rabbi Yehudah Leifer as Premishlaner Rebbe in Antwerp. The Bnei Brak Premishlaner Rebbe is the son of Rabbi Dovid Moshe Rosenbaum, zt’l who died in 1969 and was Kretchnifer Rebbe. He survived the Holocaust and settled in Rechovot, Israel. He was renowned for dispensing cures for serious ailments. He was the son of Rabbi Eliezer Zev Rosenbaum, zt’l, Kretchnifer Rebbe in Siget who was murdered in the Holocaust. He was the son of Rabbi Mayer Rosenbaum, zt’l (1852—1908), Kretchnifer Rebbe and the only one amongst the sons of his great father authorized to write kameiyos (amulets). He was the son of Rabbi Mordechai Leifer-Rosenbaum, zt’l (1824—1885), Nadvorna Rebbe. Rabbi Mordechai was the son of Rabbi Yesochor Bertchie Rosenbaum, zt’l (d. 1848), Nadvorna Rebbe and a descendent of Rabbi Uren Aryeh Leib, zt’l (d. 1813), Premishlaner Rebbe. Thus Rebbe Meir of Premishlan's Holy dynasty continues and keeps alive his Chassidic ways and teachings after the devastation of the Holocaust.


Bnei Brak Premishlaner Rebbe direct descendant of Rabbi Meir of Premishlan

Premishlan had two Jewish cemeteries. The first is where Rabbi Meir the Great lies. Efforts were under way to reacquire the property and erect a monument over Rabbi Meir’s gravesite. Jewish groups from within the country and from abroad reconstructed Rabbi Meir’s Ohel, a structure built over the resting place of a tzaddik, a righteous person in the summer of 1998. Plans were made to accommodate people visiting his grave. The effort to provide amenties for those who come to visit his Holy grave continues with the present project of Rabbi Meir Greenbaum. 

The destruction of the Holocaust which wreaked havoc in Premishlan can be shown to have failed miserably with the strengthening and continuence of the legacy of the Holy Rebbe Meir of Premishlan whose blessings continue on behalf of those living and who will seek his prayers on their behalf when visiting his grave.
