  1. There is no simcha in Klal Yisrael like Simchas Beis Belz!! B”H this is a huge simcha. The Belzer Rov is one of the biggest tzaddikim of our generation. When the Rov is b’simcha the chassidim are also b’simcha and vice versa… I really hope that I’ll be able to say mazel tov to the Rov and his son tonight by the Shalom Zachor.
