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.

Rabbi Yisroel Hager, grandfather of the kallah, is a son-in-law of Rabbi Elazar Meisels, zt”l (1914-1995), Uheiler Rav of Chicago and Miami.

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.
