This coming Tuesday, 27 Tammuz, marks the first yahrzeit of the Baba Elazar ZT”L. Officials on Wednesday, met with Jerusalem police commanders to begin making arrangements for the event.
The aliyah to the tziyun on Har HaZeisim will begin on Monday at 19:00 and heavy security is promised for the tens of thousands of mispallalim expected.
Yosef Refaeli, one of the officials in the admor’s home is quoted by Chadrei Chareidim explaining “I met with police representatives and the permit is signed for the yahrzeit and arrangements for security were made”. He adds the event will not turn into a commercial event and peddlers and stands selling items as is frequently the case will not be permitted. There will be municipal inspectors on hand to monitor compliance.
Women only will be permitted at the tziyun on Tuesday from 16:00-17:00.
The yahrzeit will get underway in Beersheva with a kenos hisorarus which will be attended by many prominent rabbonim. At 10:00 on Tuesday, the brothers, the Abuchatzera admorim will travel to the tziyun to daven as a group.
