Never heard of R. LY Barditchever zt"l
פיוט of the first
day of Shachris Rosh Hashana
(אבן חוג) it says "סלוף דינה ביהוסף
The Chasam Sofer quotes from the ספר טיב גטין
who the Ch. Sofer claims, quotes from a מקובל,
who said, that when יוסף was in לאה's womb his
name was יהוסף and when דינה was in רחל's
her name was דין.
After the mothers were switched, יהוסף
lost the ה
and became יוסף and דין received that ה and
became דינה ----
Actually, the טיב גטין
doesn't quote this from an
unknown מקובל but quotes this
from his Mechuten הרב לוי יצחק מברדיטשוב זצ"ל.
In all probability, the Chasam Sofer never heard of the קדושת לוי and therefore
refers to him as an unknown מקובל אחד.
Levi Yitzchok Barditchev - & The Chasam Sofer were both Niftar on כ"ה תשרי
