Fourth Yohrtzeit of the Skulener Rebbe to be Marked by the Rebbe and Chassidim
by Yitzy Fried
It has been four years since the petirah of the Skulener Rebbe, Rebbe Yisroel Avrohom Portugal z"l, one of the greatest leaders of this generation, and the eldest chassidishe Rebbe of his time, to whom the multitudes flocked for yeshu’os and to be warmed by his holy fire.
This Shabbos marks the fourth yohrtzeit, and on this occasion, chassidim will gather to be commemorate the hillula, and recall the days of glory in his presence, together with the Skulener Rebbe of Monsey.
A seudas hillula and siyum hashas will be held at the Skulener Shul of Monsey, 4 Blueberry Hill Road in Spring Valley, at 11:00 in the evening. A sefer Torah is being written by the Skulener chassidim of Monsey in memory of the Rebbe, and will be begun at this event.
