Tehillim for Vizhnitzer Rebbe of Bnei Brak


vizhnitzer-rebbe-bnei-brak-3All of Klal Yisroel is asked to say Tehillim for the Vizhnitzer Rebbe of Bnei Brak, Rav Moshe Yehoshua Hager, whose condition at Tel Hashomer Hospital has been deemed critical. The Rebbe’s doctors have expressed concern over the last few hours regarding his condition, which they describe as “serious.” The Rebbe is 94 years old.

The families of the Rebbe’s two sons, Rav Yisroel and Rav Mendel, and two of his daughters, Rebbetzin Ernster and the Belzer Rebbetzin, have been at the hospital to be near the Rebbe. We are told that his other two daughters, the Satmar Rebbetzin and the Skverer Rebbetzin, both who reside in the United States, have departed for Eretz Yisroel in light of the matzav.

The Vizhnitzer Rebbe of Bnei Brak, who is the nosi of the Moetzes Gedolei Hatorah in Eretz Yisroel, heads one of the most illustrious Chassidic families in the world. In addition to leading a large chassidus of his own, his children are some of most prominent admorim in the world. The Rebbe has two sons and four daughters. His oldest son is Rav Yisroel, who has been leading the Vizhnitzer kehillah in recent years when his father has been unwell. Rav Menachem Mendel, the Rebbe’s second son, is named after the founding Vizhnitzer Rebbe, author of Tzemach Tzaddik. He serves as av bais din of the Vizhnitzer kehillah in Bnei Brak.

The Rebbe’s sons-in-law are the Skverer Rebbe, Rav Dovid Twersky, of Shikun Skver; the Belzer Rebbe, Rav Yissochor Dov Rokeach, of Yerushalayim; Rav Aharon Teitelbaum of Satmar of Kiryas Yoel; and Rav Menachem Ernster, rosh yeshiva of the Vizhnitzer Yeshiva in Bnei Brak. The Rebbe’s brother, Rav Mordechai Hager, is the Vizhnitzer Rebbe of Monsey.

A massive tefillah gathering is now being held at the main Vizhnitzer Bais Medrash in Bnei Brak.

All are asked to daven for a refuah sheleimah for Rav Moshe Yehoshua ben Margalis.
