Pray for the Redemption....

HaRav Moshe Halberstam, the Kiviashder Rebbe zt"l

HT: Yaak

Brooklyn, NY - Klal Yisroel suffered an irreplaceable loss as the Williamsburg community mourned the passing of one its most revered Rabbanim, Harav Moshe Halberstam, the Kiviashder Rebbe, zt’l, who was niftar yesterday.  He was 87.

The Rebbe, who was a direct descendant of the Divrei Chaim of Sanz, zy’a, was famed for incredible levels of yiras Shamayim. 

“He feared an aveirah like someone trembles from a revolver pointed at his head,” his son Rav Boruch Nosson Halberstan recalled at the levayah yesterday.

On Hoshana Rabbah, a visitor asked him what the primary focus should be during davening on this special day.

“Daven for the Geulah Shleimah [pray for the Redemption]” the Rebbe instructed. “Everything is included in this request.”
