Shomrei Emunim Rebbe Visits New York
Rabbi Rafael Aaron Roth, Shomrei Emunim Rebbe of Bnei Brak, will be participating in his son’s wedding on Tuesday, January 29, 2013, in Monsey. The son will marry the daughter of Rabbi Yesochor Dov Rosenbaum, Stanislover Rebbe in Monsey.
The celebration will begin with a Shabbos Beshalach aufruf in Boro Park, January 25-26 at Beth Jacob Hall at 1371 46th Street. Minchah erev Shabbos is at 4:45 p.m. and the Friday night tisch will begin at 9:15. Shabbos Shacharis is at 9 a.m., followed by a grand kiddush and the Shabbos noon meal. Minchah and shalosh seudos is scheduled for 4:45 p.m.
The Shomrei Emunim Rebbe will be joined by hundreds of chassidim from Israel. In addition, chassidim in New York, including Stanislover chassidim, will join in the Shabbos aufruf events. For lodging and hospitality arrangements, hachnassas orchim committee leaders can be reached at 347-871-4768 and at 202-213-9921.
The Shomrei Emunim Rebbe’s father, Rabbi Avrohom Chaim Roth, zt”l (1924-2012), late Shomrei Emunim Rebbe and author of Chukei Chaim, passed away last August at age 88. The Chukei Chaim was survived by four sons and four daughters. The daughters are rebbetzins of the rebbes of Deij, Radoshitz, Nechshiv, and Sambor.
In accordance with the instructions of the last will and testament, succession was announced at the end of the shiva period. Rabbi Eliezer Chanoun, the late rebbe’s gabbai, stepped outside to inform the waiting chassidim. The rebbe directed that until after the yomim tovim, which included the shloshim period and Sukkos, the sons were to remain together with all the chassidim in the Shomrei Emunim beis medrash in Meah Shearim. The beis medrash in Meah Shearim was inherited by the late rebbe as son and successor of Rabbi Aaron Roth, zt”l (1894-1947), author of Shomrei Emunim and Shulchan Hatahor.
After Sukkos, Rabbi Rafael Aaron, the eldest son, inherited the mantel of being Shomrei Emunim Rebbe in Bnei Brak; Rabbi Gedalya Moshe was crowned as the Shomrei Emunim Rebbe in Ashdon; and Rabbi Shlomo became the Shomrei Emunim Rebbe in Jerusalem and Beit Shemesh. Rabbi Rafael Aaron is the son-in-law of Rabbi Mordechai Sproidlower, zt”l (1910-1981), Zhviler Rebbe and author of Mordechai B’shaar Hamelech; Rabbi Gedalya Moshe is the son-in-law of Rabbi Eliezer Zev Rosenbaum, Rachover Rebbe in Ramat Gan; and Rabbi Shlomo is the son-in-law of Rabbi Sholom Yehuda Gross, Holminer Rebbe in Beth Shemesh.
Skverer Group Visits Eastern Europe
Rabbi Yaakov Yosef Twersky is the sixth child and third son of Rabbi Dovid Twersky, Skverer Rebbe. Named after his paternal grandfather, Rabbi Yaakov Yosef Twersky, zt”l (1899-1968), late Skverer Rebbe who established New Square, Rabbi Yaakov Yosef was married in 1992 to Rebbetzin Chana Yenty, daughter of Rabbi Yehshaye Twersky, Chernobler Rebbe in Boro Park.
As the number of Skverer chassidim grows dramatically, so do the number of events within the greater Skverer community. Ordinarily graced by the Skverer Rebbe, the number and frequency of events are at the point where the Skverer Rebbe is unable to attend and preside at all of them. In order to minister to his chassidim, the Rebbe has delegated his sons to act as his representatives.
On Tuesday, January 15, a large group of chassidim led by Rabbi Yaakov Yosef returned from a week long visit to holy sites in Eastern Europe. The trip began on Sunday, December 30. During their travels the group heard insights from Rabbi Elchonon Wosner, Skverer rosh beis din, and from rabbi Shmuel Chaim Yaakov Gruber, noted Jewish historian. Rabbi Yaakov Yosef led the recital of Tehillim and shared inspirational thoughts at gravesites.
The group was at Magnalitza, Koznitz, Kealtz, Cracow, Sanz, Rimanov, and at Dinov, where a night was spent at the hachnassas orchim facility and where, the following morning, the group prayed at the gravesite of the Bnei Yesoschor. In Rudnik they were at the gravesite of Rabbi Elimelech of Rudnik, zt”l, on the day of his yahrzeit. From Shiniva the group entered Ukraine, stopping in Belz, Ludmir, Trisk, Nechshiv, Malinov, Yampola, Ostrow, Anipoli, Shpetivka, Polna, Zhvil, Kuristan and Vilandek, where the group visited the gravesite of the Vilandeker Tzaddik on the day of his yahrzeit. From there, the group proceeded to Anatevka (of “Fiddler on the Roof” fame) and to Kiev, where they visited the ohel of Rabbi Dovid of Skver (1848-1919), zt”l.
