His oldest son is Rav Yisroel, who has been leading the Vizhnitzer kehillah in recent years when his father has been unwell.

  1. #8 Depends on how he was taught to pronounce a “taf” or a “saf”.

    Though on a lighter note, I imagine that Hashem knows who you mean no matter how you pronounce the name.

    and #4

    That’s a first for me.

    The Monsey Chassidim say that the Rebbe’s mother’s name is “Margulya” and not Margalis. But I’ve never heard the “Margalit” variety from a Vizhnitzer chasid.

    May the Rebbe Shlit”a have a refuah sheleimah beguf u’vnefesh and lead us towards Mashiach.

  2. An unbelievable masmid and talmid chacham. He knew the whole Ketsos, Taz, Shach, and Minchas Chinuch ba’al peh!!! And his unbelievable love and closenesss he had to every student of his. Hashem should have mercy on the whole world and let him continue living to take us out to greet mashiach soon Amein.

  3. Rebbe is in his home in stable condition. A few visitors were even allowed in yesterday.

    His son Reb Yisrael who returned from his vacation spot in Europe when the Rebbe was deemed to be in critical condition, has returned to Europe.
