Viznitz Bnei Brak Kehilla in Monsey Celebrates Chanukas Habais and Hachnasas Sefer Torah

By Idy Perl

Hundreds of excited Viznitz Bnei Brak chassidim celebrated the long awaited chanukas habais of the new Tzemech Tzadik Viznitz bais medrash on Francis Place, as well as a hachnasas sefer Torah to welcome a new sefer Torah to the shul. The Viznitz Bnei Brak Rebbe came to New York to join in the celebrations, as well as for the wedding of his grandchild. 

The bais medrash had been under construction for the past 10 years, and it is with great simchah and siyata d’shmaya that it is finally completed and ready for use. 

The hachnasas sefer Torah procession made its way through the streets to the shul, where a platform had been set up in the middle of the floor, with bleachers all around for the chassidim. The simchah was tangible in the air as lively dancing and singing followed while the Rebbe danced with the new sefer Torah in the middle of the shul. 

Among the other rebbes in attendance was the Rachmistrivke Rebbe of Monsey, the Rachmistrivke Rebbe of Spring Valle, R’ Yisrael David Schlesinger and Reb Yakov Yosef, son of the Viznitz Monsey Rebbe.

During the seuda the Rebbe shared inspiring words of divrei Torah, and spoke about the difficult loss of the Kossove Rebbe, who was laid to rest earlier in the day.
