The Toldos Avraham Yitzchak Rebbe, who was released from Hadassah Hospital last week, visited senior Dati Leumi Rav Chaim Druckman who remains hospitalized in the same internal ward where the Rebbe was treated, prior to leaving the hospital.
HaRav Moshe Klein, the Rav of Hadassah, arranged the meeting and a photo of the meeting was publicized by B’Sheva reporter Dvir Amar.
The conversation between the two Rabbanim, which took place in Yiddish, focused on the Vizhnitzer chassidus. HaRav Druckman told the Rebbe that he came to Israel on the same boat with the ” Damesek Eliezer” of Vizhnitz, z’tl, in 1944.
Rav Druckman was born in Kuty, Poland (today in Ukraine) in 1932. Following the Nazi occupation of Poland, he and his parents managed to survive in a hideout. In 1942, the family fled to Chernivtsi, then under Romanian rule, where they stayed for a year. His parents then allowed a childless Jewish couple who obtained certificates to Eretz Yisrael to adopt him and they brought him to Israel in 1944. His parents joined him in Israel after the war.
The public is asked to daven for the refuah of HaRav Chaim Meir ben Milka b’toch sha’ar cholei Yisrael.
