The Admor Rabbi Avraham Elimelech Shapira was born in 1897 to his father, the Admor Rabbi Yisrael Shapira of Grodzinsk. He immigrated to the Land of Israel in 1926 and refused to serve as an Admor. Only after the Holocaust, learning of the deaths of his family members, did he agree to serve as the Admor of the Grodzinsk Chassidim and he opened a synagogue in the Zichron Moshe neighborhood. He passed away in 1964. His Torah appears in the books Emunat Yisrael and Binat Yisrael by his father.
