The Rebbe Rabbi Aharon Roth (1904-1947). He studied in the yeshiva of Rabbi Yeshaya Zilberstein in Vac. He was a student of the Rebbe Rabbi Zvi Elimelech of Blazowa and the Rebbe Rabbi Yissachar Dov of Belz. He founded a society for the service of G-d with self-sacrifice in Budapest and Satmar, which he called "Shomer Emunim". In 1925 he immigrated to Jerusalem, where he established a society of chassidim and students for the service of G-d in the approach of Chassidut. This holy society exists to this very day, in the chassidic sects of "Toldot Aharon", "Shomer Emunim", "Toldot Avraham Yitzchak", "Mevakshei Emunah" and others.
