belz[Update: Video and Photos below.] 9:01 IDT: This evening, a grand celebration in honor of the bar mitzvah of a grandson of the Belzer Rebbe, Rav Yissochor Dov Rokeach, is being held this evening in Kiryas Belz, Yerushalayim. The bar mitzvah bochur, Shmuel Tzvi Rokeach, is a son of the Belzer Rebbe’s only son, Rav Aharon Mordechai Rokeach.

This afternoon, ahead of the bar mitzvah seudah, the Rebbe went with his son and his grandson to the Kosel to daven, accompanied by a large entourage of Chassidim.

The bar mitzvah bochur is a great-grandson of the Vizhnitzer Rebbe of Bnei Brak, Rav Moshe Yehoshua Hager, as the Belzer Rebbetzin is a daughter of the Vizhnitzer Rebbe.

The bar mitzvah seudah is being held in a tremendous tent constructed in honor of the simcha, replete with bleachers to accommodate the overflow crowd.

Update, 2:25 a.m. IDT: The following are video and photos from the bar mitzvah celebration:

2-3 No one asks you to look at this news!!!!

This is a great simcha. For those who remember, the Belz dynasty was in tatters after the Holocaust and the lone son to be born afterwards was a mere boy when the mantle of the Rebbeship fell to him. This little boy has now been the Rebbe for decades , and is a true leader for his devoted flock. He is not afraid to go where others have not. The fact that he is seeing bnei shileishim becoming bar mitzvah is a great event and a nekamah on Hitler yimach shmo.
