Searchers recently found the tombstone of Rabbi Shaul Yehudah-Lieb Hacohen Liebin, a leader in the Chabad-chassidic community of Hevron who passed away 118 years ago. Over the course of time, the memory of his exact burial place was lost.

The tomb was found on the Mount of Olives (Har Hazeitim) in Jerusalem.

Rabbi Leibin’s descendants will gather Friday to hold a memorial service at his grave. Following the service, they will tell stories about his life, and about the Chabad community of Hevron.
