Vizhnitzers Shocked as Sudanese Workers ‘Violated’ Rebbes’ Chambers

No one seemed to be in charge of the movements of the Sudanese workers.

Vizhnitz hasidim were shocked on Sunday to discover that the secluded, sanctified room (known as the Private Tzimmer) belonging to the late Vizhnitz Rebbes, the author of Imrei Chayim and his son, author of Yeshuot Moshe, has been “defiled” by Sudanese workers, B’Hadrei Haredim reports.

With the increase in visits by hasidim clamoring to see the current Vizhnitzer Rebbe, the building, became too small to contain everyone, and that B’nei Brak community’s management decided to renovate the entire structure.

Nevertheless it was decided that hallowed Tzimmer, where the previous rebbes used to receive thousands of their followers and give them advice, would not be altered, and instead be preserved as it was during the life of the rebbes.

Now B’Hadrei Haredim reports that no one seemed to be in charge of the movements of the Sudanese workers who are roaming through the structure and have turned it into their sleeping area. And so they’ve chosen the sacred Tzimmer as their bedroom, threw down a few mattresses, among sacred books that are strewn about, and some say they even conducted their Christian prayer services there—although that part has not been proven.

The official owner of the building is London real estate tycoon Rabbi Chaim Moshe Feldman, who is the biggest supporter of the Vizhnitz movement.

Question: I recently loaned money to a friend who has been able to repay only part of it. This was an interest-free loan. We exchanged a signed IOU, not a proper shtar with witnesses, since I have always trusted her integrity and only wanted a document that confirms what was loaned and what was repaid. Now that shemittah is approaching, what should I do? Should I forgive the loan? And if my friend is not able to repay it, may I deduct the unpaid money from my ma’aser requirement?
