You had to be there to believe it. Well over 200 of his closest Hasidim came to be with their Rebbe the Bostoner Rebbe Shlita in Har Nof over Shabbos Parshas Toldos to welcome him home after his wonderful successful chizuk trip to the Jewish communities of America. After three weeks away the Rebbe, a member of the Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah in Israel as well as one of the Rabbonim directing the Haredi education network Chinuch Atzmai, expressed his gratitude to all the Chassidim who came to welcome him home. “Gee guys its great to be back with all of you, my closest and dearest. I enjoyed the trip so much, I don’t know who gave more chizuk me or them to me”. The Rebbe mixed his special own composition Bostoner zemiros with his own wonderful style of Torah with stories about all the places he visited. But just before bentching at 2am his voice gave way. Such a shame as everyone there was just so enthralled hanging on his every word.November 15, 2015 2:46 am at 2:46 am #1111928nisht gedaiget yiddenMember
Very nice! Which Bostener Rebbe? Reb Naftali?November 15, 2015 9:47 pm at 9:47 pm #1111929Sima BatshevaParticipant
No, he lives in Brookline. This is the Rebbe Rebi Mayer Shlita who took over from his father and lives in Yerushalayim Ihr Hakodesh although he spends months of every year travelling the world fundraising for his many mosdot in Israel and giving chizuk to kehilot everywhere.November 16, 2015 12:09 am at 12:09 am #1111930popa_bar_abbaParticipant
I thought the one in Boston is the rebbe. He’s the one who took over his father’s shul, and chessed work.November 16, 2015 1:31 am at 1:31 am #1111931☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
They’re both the Rebbe, one in Boston, one in Yerushalayim.November 16, 2015 1:41 am at 1:41 am #1111932JosephParticipant
Aside from several of his children becoming Rebbe, weren’t several of his brothers also Rebbe during the last Rebbes lifetime, and now his nephews are Rebbes too?November 16, 2015 2:08 am at 2:08 am #1111933nisht gedaiget yiddenMember
Doesn’t the one in Boston also go back and forth to Yerushalayim Ir HaKodesh like his father A”H used to do? He used to be in Boston from Rosh HaShana through Purim then go back to Yerushalayim from Pesach through Elul. I remember being in his shul for Simchas Torah. It was unbelievable.
