vizhnitzer-rebbe-bnei-brakAll of Klal Yisroel is asked to say Tehillim for the Vizhnitzer Rebbe of Bnei Brak, Rav Moshe Yehoshua Hager, who was taken to Tel Hashomer Hospital last night with high fever. The Rebbe has dealt with various ailments in recent years, but last night his health deteriorated and his personal physician felt that he must be taken to the hospital. The Rebbe is 94.

The Rebbe, according to once source, has a “roiz” on his foot, which the doctor said caused the high fever.

The Rebbe’s two sons, Rav Yisroel and Rav Mendel, and two of his daughters, Rebbetzin Ernster and the Belzer Rebbetzin, rushed to the hospital to be with the Rebbe.

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.
