Rabbi Shmuel Haber, Director of the Biala Ostrova Institutions, lead the annual trip to Ukraine to visit the grave of the tzadikim with the Biala Rebbe of Yerushalayim.
Ukraine is the cradle of Chassidus, and Jewish life flourished there for hundreds of years. It was there that Rabbi Yisroel, the Baal Shem Tov, founded the Chassidic movement, which then spread to Poland, Galicia, Romania and Hungary.
“If you want to pour your heart out at the Baal Shem Tov’s grave, plead at the grave of the holy Rabbi Levi Yitzchak of Berditchev, the “defendant” of Israel, or even just to warm yourself near the glow of the great Chassidic luminaries whose teachings still guide us today, a trip to visit and pray at the graves of tzadikim is the way to do it”, said Rabbi Haber to 18israel
There are tzadikim buried there who promised that whoever prays at their graveside will be saved, such as Rabbi Yisroel Dov of Vilednik, the Sar Shalom of Belz and others.
If you want to go to the next year trip please contact Rabbi Haber at 310) 621-9015.
