"All the money in the world belongs to me." - Der Heiliger Rizhiner Rebbe

You think he really liked money? The holy Rabbi Yisroel Friedman of Ruzhyn (1797-1850) hated money - it is rumored that he even used fistfuls of Romanian banknotes for toilet paper. It is no wonder, then, that in his merit, his sons established such important dynasties as Boyan and Buhosh. Where would Am Yisroel be without them?
