The Kaliver Rebbe of Williamsburg, HaRav Moshe Taub, is in need of Tefillos after being rushed to Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan for a serious infection.

The 84-year-old Rebbe, who suffers from ALS, has not been feeling well for several days and he was placed in the ICU on Tuesday after doctors determined that a dangerous infection had spread across much of his body.

The Rebbe communicates via a special computer program named EZgaze.

Before his diagnosis with ALS, the Rebbe spent many decades travelling the globe, visiting college campuses, and non-religious schools to speak to jewish students and children. The rebbe made it his his life’s work to travel around the world to reach out to Jews wherever he can with love and the message of Love for Hashem and observing his Torah.

The rebbe never took money from anyone offering it.

The present Rebbe is the sixth Rebbe in the direct succession of Kaliver Rebbe’s. He immigrated to the United States as a child shortly after WWII.

His late father Rav Menachem Shlomo a Holocaust survivor, rebuilt the Chassidus in New York, which had been decimated by the Nazis.

Upon his father’s Petira in 1978, the present Rebbe assumed the position of Kaliver Rebbe.

His name for Tehillim is Moshe ben Raizel.

  1. Unlike many fake people out there he is a praise worthy SADIK whom never took money and travelled to every country and city giving Chizuk and hope.

    About 30 years ago we met and he invited me to sleep over his house for the 2 days of Pesach just after meeting him once.

    May HE HAVE REFOUA SHELEMA Mamesh b’Karov

    Refoua Shelema.
