Bergenfield—A member of the Biala dynasty is coming to Bergenfield to offer blessings and counsel, comfort and chizuk to the people of New Jersey. He is one of the current descendants of the Pshiskhe dynasty, whose first rebbe was a fourth generation disciple of the Baal Shem Tov, Rabbi Yaakov Yitzchok Rabinowicz, (the Holy Jew/Der Yid haKodesh) of Przysucha. Der Yid was a contemporary of the Chozeh of Lublin and the teacher of Reb Simcha Bunim, who succeeded him.
A direct descendant of Der Yid, a Wonder Rebbe for modern times, the Biale Rebbe of Bnei Brak, R’ Yaakov Menachem Rabinowicz, son of the Biale Rebbe, Grand Rabbi R’ Dovid Mattisyahu, and brother-in-law of Grand Rabbi Wolf Kornreich of Sedlice, is well known for the kavanah and emunah he inspires in his Chassidim and those who seek his counsel.
The Biale Rebbe is one in a long line of wonder rabbis. His grandfather, R’ Yechiel Yehoshua Rabinowicz, the Sedlicer Rebbe, survived the Holocaust in Siberia, made Aliyah and was one of the founders of Chinuch Atzmai.When his father, R’ Dovid Matisyahu was nifter, his chassidim and talmidim asked R’ Yaakov Menachem to become their leader in his father’s and grandfather’s tradition. At the time of R’ Dovid Matisyahu’s passing, R’ Yaakov Menachem was already involved with kiruv in the United States among those who lacked understanding and knowledge of their Jewish roots.
His reputation spread, and he often travels to many communities in the US, where he is greeted by hundreds of people seeking to be inspired by him. Because he is a perceptive person, he can advise parents on how to educate their children, how to end strife and stress in the home, even when the situation seems hopeless. With his blessings and advice, many families have been healed spiritually and emotionally. In some cases, he gives sound business advice concerning millions of dollars, and businessmen have benefited from his blessing.
On Erev Shabbos, March 20, a large crowd is expected to come and join the Rebbe at a 9:15 p.m. Oneg Shabbos Tisch at the home of the Insel family in Bergenfield. This will give people an opportunity to derive spiritual joy and be elevated by Divrei Torah.
The Rebbe will recite Kiddush in a special nussach to instill kavana and ruchnius in the oylem through his holy service. His chassidim know that Kiddush is a special time with potential to bring about great salvation. Singing together at the Tisch moves the masses as if they are hearing songs and zemiros for the first time. The assembled feel a tam Gan Eden when they experience a Shabbos gathering with Biale Rebbe.
