My Machberes

Chaim Israel, who wears a shtreimel on Shabbos, has served as the president of the Boro Park Y for many years and is president of Agudath Israel of Boro Park West (9th Avenue). He is frequently found on the roster of panelists at Agudath Israel annual conventions and is seen in almost every picture of Boro Park activists at significant community events. He also is a longtime member of Community Planning Board No. 12.

Universally respected, Chaim Israel plainly is an individual who should be given serious attention as a chassidishe candidate for public office. He will be strongly supported by all segments of our communities. Though this writer considers Chaim Israel a good friend, this writing and vote of confidence is totally unsolicited.

 

Satmar Shidduch

On the second day of Chol Hamoed Pesach, April 10, Moshe Chaim Labin was engaged to the daughter and oldest child of Rabbi Chaim Zvi Teitelbaum, Jerusalem Satmar Rav and oldest son of Rabbi Zalman Leib Teitelbaum, Satmar Rebbe. The chassan is the son of Rabbi Yeshaya Labin, Zidichover Rebbe in Williamsburg. The engagement took place in Beis Medrash Berach Moshe, in the complex of the Satmar Rebbe’s Williamsburg home. Present were only close family members and specifically invited kehilla leaders.

Rabbi Zalman Leib Teitelbaum, Satmar Rebbe

That evening, thousands gathered in the Main Satmar Beis Medrash in Williamsburg to mark the joyous event. The assembled sat at or stood around the tables while yeshiva students stood on standing-room only bleachers waiting for the Rebbe, together with other family celebrants, to enter. When the Rebbe stepped over the beis medrash doorstep, spirited singing erupted and accompanied him until he sat on the podium.

The engagement had been formalized and celebrated on Motzaei Shabbos Shemini, April 22, in the Main Satmar Beis Medrash, with additional thousands having come from beyond the borders of Williamsburg to participate.

The chassan is the grandson of Rabbi Naftali Zvi Labin, zt”l (1916-2009), Zidichov Beregsaz Rebbe who survived the Holocaust and settled in London and later moved to Williamsburg; son-in-law of Rabbi Moshe Labin, zt”l 1939) Zidichover Drohabitcher Rebbe; son-in-law of Rabbi Yitzchok Isaac Eichenstein, zt”l (1805-1873), revered Zidichover Rebbe and author of Lekutei Maharea.

Today’s Zidichover Rebbe is the son-in-law of Rabbi Yonah Fulop, zt”l, Satmar rosh yeshiva and author of Higion Milev; son-in-law of Rabbi Yekusiel Yehuda Rosenberger, zt”l Hy”d (d. 1944), Diyeresher Rav and author of Toras Yekusiel who was murdered in the Holocaust.

The Jerusalem Satmar Rav is the son-in-law of Rabbi Ephraim Lemberger, zt”l, Makaveh Rav in America and author of Ateres Ephraim; son of Rabbi Moshe Noson Nuta Lemberger, zt”l (1909-1983), Makava Rav and author of Ateres Moshe; son of Rabbi Menchem Mendel Lemberger, zt”l, Polgar Rav; son of Rabbi Yehuda Leib Lemberger, zt”l Roshzono Rav. Rabbi Menchem Mendel was the son-law of Rabbi Moshe Noson Jungreis, zt”l (d. 1889), Tisaforod Rav and author of Menuchas Moshe and Toras Noson; son of Rabbi Asher Anshel Jungreis, zt”l (1806-1873), revered Chenger Rav and author of Menuchas Asher. Rabbi Ephraim Lemberger was a son-in-law of Rabbi Moshe Spitz, zt”l, Bistritzer Rav, as is the Satmar Rebbe of Williamsburg.

One should not give the money before Purim morning or after sunset.

The mishloach manos of times gone by were sometimes simple and sometimes elaborate, but the main focus was on the preparation of the delicious food they contained.

One of the earliest special Purims we have on record was celebrated by the Jews of Granada and Shmuel HaNagid, the eleventh-century rav, poet, soldier and statesman, and one of the most influential Jews in Muslim Spain.

Jews, wake up! Stop educating the world and start educating yourselves.

The lessons conform to the sensitivities and needs of the Orthodox community…

The program took on special significance as it marked not only the first anniversary of Rebbetzin Kudan’s levayah but also the 27th yahrzeit of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneerson, a”h.

It captures the love of the Jewish soul as only Shlomo Hamelech could portray it – and as only Rabbi Miller could explain it.

Erudite and academic, drawing from ancient and modern sources, the book can be discussed at the Shabbos table as well as in kollel.

I’m here to sit next to you and help you through this Purim with three almost-too-easy mishloach manot ideas, all made with cost-conscious paper bags.

Kids want to be like their friends, and they want to give and get “normal” mishloach manos stocked with store-bought treats.

Whenever he did anything loving for me, I made a big deal about it.

“OMG, it’s so cute, you’re so cute, everything is so cute.”

A program that started with a handful of volunteers has grown exponentially to include students from a wider array of backgrounds.
