Tzadikim

Rabbi Chaim Meir Hager,

A member of the Moetzes Gedolei Hatorah (Council of Torah Sages) of the Agudath Israel of Eretz Yisrael; he was the scion of a noble Chassidic dynasty 

Born: December 1, 1887 (5648)
Died: March 24, 1972 (5732) Bene Beraq, Israel, 1972
 

Rabbi Chaim Meir Hager, who had been revered as Vizhnitzer Rebbe for 35 years, passed away in Eretz Yisrael on the Thursday night before Pesach, 5732. On the following day, an estimated 50,000 mourners accompanied his aron to its final resting place.

He had a huge following, including the thousands of settlers of Shikun Vizhnitz, and the hundreds of students of the Vizhnitzer Yeshiva, both in Bnei Brak; he was a member of the Moetzes Gedolei Hatorah (Council of Torah Sages) of the Agudath Israel of Eretz Yisrael; he was the scion of a noble Chassidic dynasty; but, perhaps equal to all of these elements, his personal warmth, the majesty of his tisch, and the triumph of joy over adversity that he personified, won him vast admiration beyond the confines of any one group.

May the merit of the tzaddik Rabbi Chaim Meir Hager  protect us all, Amen.
