Vishnitzer/Skverer Sheva Berachos
During The Hurricane

The chassunah took place in New Square on Wednesday evening, October 24. Yochanan Hager married Margolia (Pearl), daughter of Rabbi Yaakov Yosef Hager; son of Rabbi Yisroel Hager, Monsey Vishnitzer Rav; son of Rabbi Mordechai Hager, Monsey Vishnitzer Rebbe. Rabbi Yaakov Yosef, father of the kallah, is a son-in-law of Rabbi Dovid Twersky, Skverer Rebbe.

On Monday, October 29, Hurricane Sandy unleashed its fury on the tri-state area of New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut, extinguishing electricity to tens of thousands of homes. That night, the Monsey Vishnitzer Rebbe came to New Square to join the Skverer Rebbe in celebrating sheva berachos. Hurricane Sandy did not exempt New Square, where every home lost electrical power. Skverer chassidim managed to equip the Main Skverer Beis Medrash with enough generator power to illuminate the event.

Tuesday’s final sheva berachos was held in the Main Vishnitzer Beis Medrash in Monsey despite the continuing storm and its many resulting complications. The happy event lasted late into the evening.

Vishnitzer Shidduch

Vishnitzer chassidim in Bnei Brak were preparing for the departure of their beloved leader, Rabbi Yisroel Hager, Bnai Brak Vishnitzer Rebbe, to America for a three-week visit that would include his participation at the wedding of a grandson. Then came the news that another of the Rebbe’s grandsons had become engaged. Menachem Mendel Hager, son of Rabbi Yitzchok Yeshaya Hager, was betrothed to the daughter of Rabbi Shlomo Goldman, Zvhiller Rebbe of Union City. The chassan is also a grandson of Rabbi Paneth, zt”l, Deijer Rebbe of Jerusalem.

The armory, with its enormous capacity, has been the site of many chassidishe weddings and formal affairs. The upcoming major event, to be joined by tens of thousands of Satmar chassidim, will take place on Tuesday, December 4.

Satmar Chassunah In Jerusalem

January 23, 2013 will be a special day on the calendar of the many chassidim of Rabbi Zalman Leib Teitelbaum, Satmar Rebbe. On that day, the daughter of his firstborn son, Rabbi Chaim Zvi Teitelbaum, the Yerushalayim Satmar Rav, will be married to Moshe Chaim Labin, son of Rabbi Yeshaya Labin, Zidichover Rebbe in Williamsburg. The engagement took place and was celebrated in Williamsburg in April.

The decision to make the wedding in Jerusalem was just announced. Several travel agents are offering attractively priced packages that include air fare, central Jerusalem hotel lodging, car rental, and cellular phone rental, with travelers leaving Motzaei Shabbos Bo, January 19, and returning from Jerusalem on Motzaei Shabbos Beshalach, January 26.
