13

A car accident has occurred in the town of Kerestir, Hungary, involving two bochurim who are among the many Yidden visiting the small town to mark the yahrtzeit of Rav Yeshaya Steiner of Kerestir, legendary Kerestirer Rebbe.

Rav Yeshayale was known throughout pre-war Hungary for his tzidkus and his blessings, which miraculously came to fruition. He passed away on 3 Iyar, 1926.

His yahrtzeit, today, 3 Iyar, has become a day when hundreds converge on the small town of Kerestir to daven at his kever for yeshuos in his merit.

The bochurim were taken in critical condition to a hospital in Miskolc in northeastern Hungary. One was taken via ambulance and one was flown there via helicopter.

Both bochurim are from the Stamford Hill community of London, England.

All are asked to daven for Yehuda ben Irit and Binyomin ben Rochel.

  1. It was horrible. The language barrier added to the misery Hungarian yiddisher enligshe and hebrayish add to der confusion. They brought in a helicopter also.

  2. hope the boys have a refuah shleimo
    im trying to understand what are boys doing in hungary in middle of the zman
    if they want to daven at the grave of a tzadik they can go to meoras hmachpela

    to leave ey to go to a land soaked with jewish blood(i am hungarian )
    makes no sense to me in middle of the zman
