Munkatcher Rebbe will Journey to Where it all Began
by YS Gold
It has become a tradition in the court of Munkatch for the Rebbe to journey to the Hungarian town (today in Ukraine), the birthplace of the Munkatcher chassidus, in advance of the bar mitzvah of his grandchildren.
Following Pesach of this year, Yaakov Yoel Rabinowitz, the son of Rav Yeruchom Fischel, Rosh Yeshiva of Munkatch - Monsey and a son of the Rebbe, will be celebrating his bar mitzvah, and the Rebbe will lead a pilgrimage to Munkatch about one week after Yom Tov in honor of this occasion.
As per the custom, the Rebbe will put tefillin on the bar mitzvah bachur in the home of his saintly grandfather, the Minchas Elozor of Munkatch, in addition to visiting the tziyun and other important highlights on the itinerary.
