First Report: Gerrer Rebbe to Visit U.S. and Europe


gerrer-rebbeFirst report: has learned that the Gerrer Rebbe, Rav Yaakov Aryeh Alter, will be visiting the United States and Europe next week. The decision for the Rebbe to visit abroad was finalized during the last few days. Thus, the Rebbe’s itinerary has not yet been finalized and it is not clear which countries in Europe and where in the U.S. he will visit.

The flight to the United States will probably be this Sunday, and he will stay in the U.S. until Thursday, though there is a possibility that he will remain for Shabbos as well.

Either way, his visit to Europe will begin the following week. The Rebbe will visit Italy, where a dinner will be held to benefit Mosdos Gur, attended by supporters of the chassidus.
