First Grandchild Born to Rachmistrivke Rebbe of Eretz Yisroel


rachmastrivke-rebbe-eretz-yisroelRachmistrivke chassidim are celebrated a special simcha, the birth of the first grandchild of the Rachmistrivke Rebbe of Eretz Yisroel.

What makes the simcha extra special is that the Rebbe waited for more than twenty years after his wedding until his only children, twin daughters, were born. The elder of the twins got engaged back in September in 2009 and she now gave birth to a baby girl.

The baby’s father, Reb Shmuel Avraham Abba Twersky, is a son of Rav Yaakov Yosef Twersky of Boro Park, son of Rav Yehoshua Twersky zt”l, son of the Rachmistrivke Rebbe, Rav Yochonon zt”l. Rav Yaakov Yosef is a son-in-law of the previous Skverer Rebbe of Flatbush zt”l and is an esteemed talmid chochom and greatly beloved figure in the bais medrash of his uncle, the Rachmistrivke Rebbe of Boro Park.

This Shabbos, a large Kiddush in honor of the birth of the baby will be held at the Rachmistrivke Bais Medrash on Rechov Givat Moshe in Yerushalayim.
