Which bring us to the old adage: “If it looks too good to be true, it’s not.” Handmade matzahs at machine-made matzah prices, at least before and during Pesach, are an impossibility.
Coming after the passing of the Bnai Brak Vishnitzer Rebbe less than a month ago (My Machberes, March 23), news of a great simcha in the house of his brother, the Monsey Vishnitzer Rebbe, is most welcome and will be joyously celebrated.
Yitzchok Yochanan Rottenberg was engaged to the youngest daughter of Rabbi Yisroel Hager, Monsey Vishnitzer Rav and son of the Monsey Vishnitzer Rebbe. The chassan is the son of Rabbi Yosef Ben Zion Rottenberg, Kosoner Rav in Boro Park and son-in-law of the Monsey Vishnitzer Rebbe. Thus, the chassan and kallah are both grandchildren of the Monsey Vishnitzer Rebbe. The engagement took place at the home of the kallah with the exclusive participation of close family members.
The morning after the engagement, the two sides reassembled in the home of the venerated grandfather in Monsey, where they received his blessing. The formal l’chaim, formal engagement celebration, will take place in the main Vishnitzer Beis Medrash in Monsey after the end of the sheloshim mourning period for the Rebbe’s brother.
In years past, erev Pesach reports always focused on the burning of chametz that went out of control, causing significant injuries, pain and damage. Hatzolah had its hands full delivering the injured to burn units in various hospitals. Fortunately, our community activists, especially those involved with Hatzolah and Shomrim, joined with the New York City Fire Department and designed a map of chaperoned burning locations that are convenient to all.
The burn locations are attended by FDNY personnel as well as by Shomrim members. The FDNY’s considerate supervision cannot be praised enough. Though unappreciative individuals still endeavor to create their own freelance fires, they are unwelcome by the overwhelming majority. The FDNY must be supported in its outreach. The observant community’s compliance is a Kiddush Hashem.
