vizhnitz-chasunah-13[Photos below.] Last night, a massive crowd of thousands gathered in Bnei Brak for the wedding of the oldest great-grandson of the Vizhnitzer Rebbe of Bnei Brak. The chosson, Chanaya Yom Tov Lipa Hager, is a son of Rav Chaim Meir Hager, who is the eldest son of Rav Yisroel Hager. Rav Yisroel is the oldest son of the Vizhnitzer Rebbe.

The wedding was held in the Kesser Malchus tent in the city of Petach Tikvah.

The kallah is a daughter of Rav Avrohom Shimon Greenfeld, rov of the Semeheli Bais Medrash in Bnei Brak.

Among those in attendance were the elter-zaida of the chosson, the Vizhnitzer Rebbe of Bnei Brak; as well as the Belzer Rebbe and Rav Menachem Mendel Hager, great-uncles of the chosson; and the Chernobler Rebbe.

  1. Eldest great grandson? Must be an older fellow, especially by the standards of the chasidim! Both the Skvere Rebbe and R’ Ahron of Satmar, who are eidems of the Viznitzer from BB, have grandchildren married at least a decade!
