Video: Gerrer Rebbe Visits Belzer Rebbe


ger-belz[Videos below.] Last night, the Gerrer Rebbe, Rav Yaakov Aryeh Alter, paid a visit to the Belzer Rebbe, Rav Yissochor Dov Rokeach, in Kiryat Belz, Yerushalayim, to share greetings for a gemar chasimah tovah. During the brief meeting, the two admorim shared words of chizuk for the Yemei Hadin.

The respective rebbes lead two of the largest Chassidic courts in Eretz Yisroel.

  1. The miraculous survival of the ancestors of the Belzer and the Gerrer Rebbes from the midst of the Holocaust is now bearing fruit as both groups are large and powerfu. Of course, both are a shadow of what they were in Pre War Poland, but in due time, they will continue to grow.

  2. a “shadow”? vus redts ir shtusim?

    as everyone knows until the shoah, frum jewry ACROSS THE BOARD was in major decline. these hubba bubba maasehlach about the holy European Jews are fairy tails.

    look at the picture of how many chasisim are with the Belzer Rebbe Reb Aharon in the famous picture book by Vishniac. And compare this with what is taking place today. how many X bigger and more mefoar is today’s Bais Medrash in Yerusholayim compared to what they had in Belz? Ger and Belz today have less political power than once upon a time? what planet do yoyou live on? do you know anything about what goes on in the knesset? How much power did they have in the Sejm? squat.

    maybe your point is they were bigger people? Bat Guano. those big people were losing klal Yisroel in droves while today the movement is 180 degrees pum fakert and picking up steam with each passing year.

    R’ Avigdor Miller says that this europe worship is nothing less than atzas hayetzer as it
    removes our drive to actually do what we can in Avodas Hashem since the yetzer uses this crud to needle us with “who are we anyway”. Goat Raisins. place pre war Jews in our society and see how far THEY would get.

    Yes my tone is of anger – Rigzu – on the yetzer says the gemoro in Brochos and unfortunately L. Oberstein is acting as a mouthpiece for the the sitra achra.

    Am Yisrael Chai now. Stop living in the dead and rather unglorious past my freind.
