  • 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!

Shabbos Yahrtzeit in Alexander

Last week, on Shabbos Bereishis, Alexander Chassidim from America and Israel spent Shabbos in Alexander, Poland, together with their Rebbe in honor of the yahrtzeit of the 'Tiferes Shmuel' of Alexander, zy"a.

The journey began last Wednesday, when the Rebbe shlita and his Chassidim from America arrived in Ukraine, where they davened at the kever of Rabbi Levi Yitzchak of Berditchev, zy"a.

From there, they set out to Lizhensk on Wednesday to pour out their hearts at the kever of Rabbi Elimelech of Lizhensk zy"a. Immediately thereafter, they traveled to the city of Alexander in Poland.

On Friday morning, a large group of Chassidim from Israel arrived in Warsaw, and set out to greet their Rebbe and meet with the other Chassidim in Alexander. The excitement and joy that were evident leading up to the Shabbos Hisachdus warmed the spirit of the Chassidim, despite the freezing weather outside.

On Shabbos, the Rebbe shlita delivered divrei Torah from his forefathers' sefarim and he held his tischen and tefillos at the hoif of the Admor Rabbi Yitzchak Menachem Danziger hy"d zy"a, who was the last Alexander Rebbe in Poland. He was murdered together with his wife and eleven children by the Nazis during the Holocaust.

On Sunday, the Rebbe and his Chassidim traveled around Poland to daven at several kevarim of illustrious Admorim of yesteryear, such as the Admor of Kozhnitz, Vurka and Peshischa zy"a.

On Sunday night, the Rebbe returned with his Chasidim to America, and the Israeli group returned to Israel. The memories of the Shabbos together will have a lasting impact in the chassidim's hearts.
