  1. Title: The Ba'al Hatanya hid in Chatzlavitch
    Author: David Arbesfeld ,

    Rabbi Schachter quoted the Rav saying that the  Ba'al Hatanya hid in Chatzlavitch, while Reb Nachman thought that it was Gaditch. I spoke with Dr Shneur Leiman who says that it is definitely Chatzlavitch, and that the Rav's father, Rav Moshe Soloveitchik, was a rav in Chatzlavitch. However, when the Ba'al Hatanya was still hiding and was near death, he asked to be buried in Gaditch, because there are many tzadikim buried in Gaditch.
