  • The Mission Continues

    As in the past so it remains today - we were and still are under the selfsame commitment to adhere to the directions of the Gedolei Yisrael, who stand guard against breaches of purity threatening our camp. When we were required to ask – we asked. When we were instructed to depart – we left. The moment we are summoned back to raise the flag, every other consideration is pushed to the side and we answer: We are ready!

For the first time in Tel Aviv: Huge Ohel to Accommodate Large Crowds Participating in Simchas Beis Kozhnitz

The Simchas Beis Sho'eva in Kozhnitz was celebrated with the Sheva Berachos for the Rebbe's son in North Tel Aviv

Yochanan Weisberg 15/10/2009 18:04

During Sukkos, the last sheva berachos of the Kozhnitzer Rebbe's son was celebrated in Tel Aviv. The kallah is a daughter of Rabbi Zusha Horowitz, rabbi of the Ramot Gimmel neighborhood in Jerusalem.

The Kozhnitzer Rebbe, who lives in Tel Aviv and has a blessed influence on the secular population living in this spiritual wasteland, has married off his eldest son. Although the Rebbe has a Beis Medrash in Tel Aviv, he wanted to celebrate the shabbos sheva berachos in Tel Aviv in order to give the local residents a taste of simchas tzaddikim.

His Beis Medrash in Tel Aviv, however, could not accommodate all the expected participants, which led the askanim to try and find a suitable solution. In the end, they found a large lot near the shul where they erected a huge tent.

Hundreds of Chassidim and admirers arrived from across the country to participate in the simchah, among them the talmidim of the Kozhnitz Yeshiva Ketana of Bnei Brak and their parents. They slept in the nearby 'Beit Hayeled' school building.

Many rabbis from all over Tel Aviv came to attend the tefillos and tischen. They all felt that they owed the Rebbe hakaras hatov for all his wonderful work on behalf of the local residents.

On the day of the chasunah, many people waited in line to receive berachos from the Rebbe, as is customary.

Many talmidim, Chassidim and admirers participated in the wedding, as did several prominent Rebbes, among them the Admorim of Karlin, Chernobyl, Boyan, Rachmastrivkah, Lutzk, Antinyeh, Alesk, Ziditchoiv and many noted rabbanim.

On the Yahrtzeit of the Kozhnitzer Maggid zy"a, a sheva berachos was held at the Beis Medrash in Tel Aviv, which was attended by the Alexander Rebbe, the Vasloier Rebbe and the Bohusher Rebbe, among many others.

The sheva berachos which was combined with a simchas beis hasho'eva in Tel Aviv was attended by hundreds of people, and Chief Rabbi of Israel Rabbi Yonah Metzger honored the event with his presence.

The Kozhnitzer Rebbe saw to it that all his neighbors were dancing along to the merry tunes. Many of them are secular, and for most of them it was the first time they participated in simchas tzaddikim.

On motzaei Simchas Torah, a joyous hakafos sheniyos was held at the Beis Medrash, where the dancing continued through the night.
