The 29th of Adar is the Yahrtzeit of Rav Shlomo (Dov Tzvi Hakohen) Rabinowitz of Radomsk, first Rebbe of the Radomsk dynasty (1803-1866). Born in Volotchova, he learned with the Bris Avraham of Pietrikov and became a chassid of the Ohr Lashamayim of Apt. He first took the position of Rav of Radomsk in 1834 and later took on the yoke of Rebbe. His chassidus grew significantly after Reb Moshe of Lelov moved to Eretz Yisrael and instructed his Chassidim to follow Rav Shlomo. He was the author of Tiferes Shlomo on Chumash and the moadim.
A youth came to the Radomsker Rebbe and complained that he suffered from a nervous ailment which brought him evil dreams in the night. “It is your melancholy that is responsible,” said the rebbe. “Always be cheerful and you will be cured.” (Bet Shlomo, page 31)
