It was awesome - the Modzitzer Rebbe Shlita, dozens of his Chassidim, visited the dozens of residents of Shavei Shomron, where the Rebbe's uncle, R. Hershel Taub z"l, lived. It was the Shloshim, end of the 30-day mourning period, for R. Hershel z"l. After a ceremony at the Shavei Shomron cemetery, a Seudas Mitzva in R. Hersh z"l's honor was held.
Some of the scenes:
Chassidim and Residents of Shavei Shomron dancing to a lively Modzitz niggun, composed by the Rebbe Shlita.
The Rebbe Shlita at the dais, with his uncle, R. Avraham Shenker, next to him. The Rav of Shavei Shomron is seated next to R. Shenker. [R. Shenker is a brother-in-law of R. Hersh z"l].
Some of the attendees, Chassidim and Shavei Shomron residents alike, partaking in the Seudas Mitzva.
R. Moshe Taub, son of R. Hershel Taub z"l, making a Siyum. He finished an entire tractate of Gemara, while several residents and some of the Chassidim finished the entire six orders of Mishna. So it was a double-Siyum!
A fuller report will be posted here shortly. Watch this space!!!
I love the music of Modzitz and it was nice to see these photos.
