  • 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 Pschevorsk

In the Rebbe's last will, he asked his followers to donate to Kollel Chibas Yerushalayim

Yochanan Weisberg 18/11/2009 08:23

Last Shabbos, the yahrtzeit of the tzaddik Reb Yankele of Pschevorsk zy"a took place. Many gusts spent Shabbos with his son, the Pschevorsker Rebbe shlita, in Antwerp.

Last Thursday, the Pschevorsker Rebbe shlita davened at the kever of his father and recited tehillim for klal Yisrael.
The Rebbe also received kvittlech from his Chassidim and admirers who had come to seek salvation at the gravesite of the tzaddik Reb Yankele, zy"a.

The Rebbe davened before the amud on Shabbos and many Jewish residents in Antwerp joined the regular mispalelim at the Pschevorsker shul.

In accordance with the last will of the Rebbe zy"a, the Chassidim of Pschevorsk have the custom to donate money to Kollel Chibas Yerushalayim on the yahrtzeit.

This year, a special fundraising campaign was conducted with the slogan 'la'asos retzon tzaddik' – 'to fulfill the will of the righteous'. An 'Etrog' reporter talked to one of the gabbaim in charge of the camping, who said that the public has been more responsive than ever, and countless contributions have been made.

One of 'Etrog's loyal readers from Belgium sent in pictures of the Rebbe:
