Matzeivah of Maran Rav Moshe Feinstein zt”l On Har Hamenuchos Collapses Due to Large Crowds


rav-moshe-feinsten-kever1Large crowds of Yidden gathered today on Har Hamenuchos to mark the yahrtzeit of the Belzer Rebbe, Rav Aharon Rokeach zt”l. Unfortunately, due to the large number of people in the area of Har Hamenuchos where the Rebbe’s kever is located, the nearby kever of the posek hador and rabbon shel kol bnei hagolah, Maran Rav Moshe Feinstein zt”l, became damaged, with the tombstone collapsing, as seen in the photo here.

Onlookers expressed shock at the inadvertent desecration of the matzeivah. Efforts are already underway to restore the matzeivah once the large crowds disperse.

In other news, the Belzer Rebbe will conduct a yahrtzeit tish this evening, to be held in conjunction with the tenaim in honor of the engagement of his eldest granddaughter, a daughter of his only son, Rav Aharon Mordechai Rokeach.

  1. Whoever caused such a thing to happen, even inadvertently, should rush to do rectify it, lest there be a kitrug…

  2. Please be advised that the Rebbe sent people to contact the family and said the Rebbe asked mechila and has asked his askanim to repair it asap. They wanted to know if there were any minhagim that needed to be followed. They tracked down every Feinsteins’ cell phone – which they either work for the NSA or were helped by a Power Above. May klal yisroel only know good things.

  3. The Belzer Rebbe was davening at his father’s tziyun when this occurred and immediately went over and asked mechila from Rav Moshe. The Rebbe also ordered his gabbaim to repair the damage as soon as possible.

  4. Lets just remember that the chelka belongs to the belzer kihelah and they graciously made it available for the posek hador. So you can asume that they will have it fixed in no time.
