The Rebbe was returning home to New Square from a Satmar wedding in Kiryas Yoel. According to reports, shortly after the accident, the Rebbe was provided another vehicle and made it to the wedding of one of his followers back in New Square.
Rabbi Twersky is the descendant of both the Ba’al Shem Tov and Rabbi Menachem Nachum of Chernobyl. His father, Rabbi Yakov Yosef Twersky, established the Hasidic village of New Square in Rockland County in 1954.
