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.
