Old World וויזשניצער שוואנצונעס

Hirshel: 

 I don’t work for Reb Mendel Hager’s שוואנצונעס club, but I saw today in a book of an old Vizhnitzer chusid, Reb Yankel Valtzer, one of the old time types that L-O-V-E-D his Rebbe, saying before starting הבדלה: Bezchus the הייליגער Rebbe, bezchus the הייליגער Rebbe's kinder, הנה קל ....... I think it's his eynikel, Yankel Valtzer, that left the Mendelist camp and went over to main Bene Beraq Wizhnnitz, and was rewarded with the Mazkir Agudas Yisroel job, much to the dismay of the Mendelisten.

So there is a deep state culture from which R' Mendel is taking his ideas -----

ר' זלמן געלערנטער און קהל אנשי הרובישאוו

Reb Zalman Gelerenter was a Yid from Horibishov in גאליציע who made sure that the town was not forgotten. And davka in Crown Heights! He passed away on this day - 29 Shvat - in 5775. If you're reading this and ever visited Crown Heights you surely remember Kesser Hats on Kingston. One block from 770. We've written about Horibishov and Reb Yochonon Twersky, SIL of Reb YD of Belz, in the past. Back in this blog's heyday. And HERE. Make sure to listen to the clip posted below, where he sings a ואני type song about שיר השירים and more.

Rev. Morris Gray in E. Liverpool, Ohio wants to get home already to make Kiddush... And he has Reb Chaim Brisker on his side!

Rev. Gray says that in בריסק דליטא they would announce in all the shuls in the name of Reb Chaim that davening finish NO later than 12 o'clock NOON! I would imagine they didn't start at 9:30, true, but how early can you start already? 6:30? 7:00? Still not what goes on in some shuls today.
