A Kever In Tlust

Sarah: The Baal Shem Tov's mother

Excerpt from

Rabbi Israel ben Eliezer chose to settle in Tluste, around 1734, and to reveal himself there as the Ba'al Shem Tov. His connection to Tluste is confirmed by various sources: two of the rare surviving letters signed by the Besht indicate that Tluste was his home or place of origin; there are two references to Tluste in the tales of his life and deeds, depicted in Shivei Ha-Besht: In Praise of the Baal Shem Tov; and his mother is buried in Tluste’s Jewish cemetery, where her tombstone could be found until the time of World War II.


Does anyone know where the Baal Shem Tov's daugter Adel is buried?

From known sources - she lived in Mezhbuzh. But I'm not sure about the location of her keyver.

i heard that she is buried in a village near medzhibuzh. yet today they are not sure where this village is located.

another source told me that she is buried in Siedlowiec, Poland. I don't know how that would have happened, but thats what an old yid from Siedlowiec told me...
