Rabbi Meir HaLevi Rotenberg was nominated in 1809 to serve as a rabbi in Apt (Opatów) and, in 1815, in Stavnits (Stopnica). He was drawn to chasidism under his brother’s influence and considered Rabbi Yaakov Yitzcḥak Horowitz (the Seer of Lublin) his unequivocal mentor. Upon Horowitz’s death in 1815, he took on the role of a tsadik, and according to one tradition was officially appointed the Seer’s successor.
