Ywn Skverer Rebbe To Undergo Open-Heart Surgery On Tuesday Morning

Please be Mispallel for the Skverer Rebbe who is undergoing open-heart surgery this morning. The Rebbe was flown to a hospital in Minnesota, where the surgery will take place. The surgery is scheduled for 10:00AM ET. Please say Tehillim for Dovid ben Trani. The Skverer Rebbe has led his kehilla in New Square, NY since 1968. New Square is the anglicized name of Skvira, a village in the Ukraine, where today’s Skverer Rebbe’s ancestors reigned. The New Square community in upstate New York was launched in 1957, when approximately 20 Skverer families moved from Williamsburg, Brooklyn, onto a 130-acre former farm in north Spring Valley, under the leadership of Rabbi Yaakov Yosef Twersky, zt’l (1899–1968), late Skverer Rebbe, who arrived in the United States in 1950. Before the end of its first year, almost 40 families resided in New Square. In 1961, New Square became the first village in New York State to be governed by a religious group. Over the years, incremental annexations of bordering properties have increased its size. New Square’s population, according to the 2000 census, impressively increased by 77.5% between 1990 and 2000. Since then, the shtetl’s growth has maintained that increase. New Square’s success motivated other chassidish groups to plan and build their own versions of a chassidish community outside the maelstrom of America’s large cities. Notably, Kasho, Nitra, Pupa, Satmar, Tash, and Vizhnitz have established insulated chassidish communities away from big metropolitan areas. The community in New Square, Spring Valley, is populated almost exclusively by Skverer chassidim, who wish to maintain a chassidish lifestyle insulated from outside secular influences. The village is substantially self-sustained with its own businesses and shopping areas, primary and secondary schools, schools of higher education, as well as community, religious, and charitable organizations. The village is essentially one community with a large synagogue serving its entire population. Rabbi Dovid Twersky, the current Skverer Rebbe, was born in 1940. In 1958, he married Rebbetzin Chana, born in 1943, eldest daughter of Rabbi Moshe Yehoshua Hager, zt’l (1917–2012), Bnei Brak Vizhnitzer Rebbe. Their offspring are: Rabbi Aaron Menachem Mendel Twersky, born in 1962, married in 1980 to Rebbetzin Chava Reizel, daughter of Rabbi Mordechai Hager, Monsey Vizhnitzer Rebbe; Rabbi Yitzchok Itzik Twersky, born in 1963, married in 1981 to Rebbetzin Malka, daughter of Rabbi Yisroel Hager and granddaughter of the late Bnei Brak Vizhnitzer Rebbe; Rebbetzin Hinda Twersky, married in 1982 to Rabbi Avrohom Yehoshua Heshel Twersky, son of Rabbi Chai Yitzchok Twersky, Rachmestrivka Rebbe in Boro Park; Rebbetzin Tzipora, born in 1965, married in 1983 to Rabbi Eliezer Goldman, son of Rabbi Yaakov Goldman, scion of the Zhviler chassidish dynasty; Rebbetzin Tzima Mirel, born in 1969, married in 1987 to Rabbi Yaakov Yosef Hager, son of Rabbi Yisroel Hager, Vizhnitzer Rav in Monsey; son of Rabbi Mordechai Hager, Monsey Vizhnitzer Rebbe (the Monsey Vizhnitzer Rebbe is both a brother-in-law and an uncle by marriage to the Skverer Rebbe); Rabbi Yaakov Yosef, born in 1973, married in 1992 to Rebbetzin Chana Yenty, daughter of Rabbi Yehshaye Twersky, Chernobler Rebbe in Boro Park; and Rabbi Chaim Meir, born in 1981, married in 2000 to Rebbetzin Rochel Dinah, daughter of Rabbi Zvi Elimelech Halberstam, Kiviashder Rebbe; son of Rabbi Moshe Halberstam, zt’l (1924–2011), late Kiviashder Rebbe in Williamsburg.

KEHOT.COM Lessons In Tanya Large Edition - Slipcased

Lessons in Tanya is a linear exposition and commentary on the Tanya of R. Schneur Zalman of Liadi, founder of Chabad philosophy. Beginning as a weekly Yiddish radio program in 1960, Rabbi Yosef Wineberg drew upon teachings received from Chasidic scholars at the renowned academies of Lubavitch in Europe and the writings of seven generations of Chabad Rebbes. Each of the lectures was examined and amended by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, so that much of the material includes the Rebbe’s insights and explanatory comments. Guiding the reader through every phrase of the Tanya, this most authoritative guide is a well-lit and accessible gateway to the Tanya, illuminating the mystical, often elusive, Talmudic, Kabbalistic, and Scriptural verses and concepts. It fills many gaps in what the terse Tanya text assumes to be the reader’s background knowledge. In the 1980s, the lectures were translated and published, opening the breadth and depth of this work to English-speaking students. For its 25th anniversary, Lessons in Tanya has been redesigned as a permanent treasure for a new generation of seekers. This new and revised edition has received an aesthetic face-lift featuring: Clear design and layout to enable continuous side-by-side study flow Vowelized and punctuated Hebrew text Interpolated commentary Clear daily study indicators Editorial updates and correctionsOrder here now 45% off $65.86

OU TORAH BLOG The New Chumash Mesoras HaRav: Sefer Bamidbar!

OU Press is pleased to announce the publication of the fourth volume in the acclaimed Chumash Mesoras HaRav series, Sefer Bamidbar – The Neuwirth Edition. Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, known as the Rav, represented the pinnacle of 20th century Jewish thought. Given the breadth of his writing and teaching, it is unsurprising that the Rav provided many insights into Chumash over the decades, though he never authored a comprehensive commentary. Previously, the only way to study the Rav’s analysis of the Chumash was to glean the relevant content from his vast corpus of work. Chumash Mesoras HaRav represents the first-ever collection of the Rav’s thoughts on Chumash organized around the text that they illuminate.
