An Angel Amid the Ashes: The Klausenberger Rebbe Part II

June 20, 2021
In honor of the yahrtzeit of Rav Yekusiel Yehuda Halberstam, the Sanz-Klausenburg Rebbe (1905-1994), another chapter in his storied life is presented, as his charismatic leadership and Torah greatness is examined in greater detail.
Having emerged from the horrors of the Holocaust while losing his entire family and community, he set out to rebuild while strongly maintaining the independence of his own community. Building institutions and teaching Torah, he assumed roles which were atypical of a standard chassidic leader. His leading an independent stance ons many issues brought him occasionally into dispute with other Torah leaders, but he maintained his position. 
With perseverance, leadership and Torah scholarship, he successfully recreated a Galician Sanz community on the beach of the Mediterranean in the city of Netanya.
