Sunday was a special day at the home of Rav Chaim Kanievsky in Bnei Brak, as, within a number of hours, no less than seven brisos were held at 23 Rechov Rashbam, with Rav Chaim Kanievsky serving as sandek at all seven.

The first bris was held at noon. The other brisos were then held, one after the next, in succession, until Minchah time.

Rav Chaim serves as sandek almost every day at the Lederman Shul near his home. For years now, Rav Chaim no longer travels beyond his street to serve as sandek at brisos, so people bring their brisos to him, general holding them at Lederman.

Yesterday, however, as mentioned, a record seven brisos were held in one afternoon at Rav Chaim’s home.

Meanwhile, last night, the residence of Rav Chaim saw a visit from Supreme Court Justice Elyakim Rubinstein, who came to received a brachah from the gadol hador.

  1. I wonder if he’s bothered by all of this or if he looks at it as a zechus to be part of so many mitzvos. Generally Talmidei Chachamim in our generation of his caliber don’t like to be taken away from their learning — for any reason.

  2. He has a kabbalah from his Uncle the Chazon Ish never to turn down sandeka’os. H’ will certainly pay him back his time.

    I’m sure it was metzitza b’peh.
