Behadrei Haredim has learned that this is a real surprise in the Hasidic court, since last month in Shevet, the Rebbe of Sanz crowned his third son, Rabbi Avraham Halberstam, son-in-law of the Rebbe of Strapkov, to serve as rabbi of Kiryat Sanz in Tiberias. The Mishpak Rabbi Berel Shatmar then announced on behalf of the Rebbe his son that he would serve as the rabbi of the community in Kiryat Sanz in Tiberias.
Tonight as mentioned, the Rebbe crowned his second son during the reception while carrying things as usual in this class. The Rebbe spoke of the holy fathers and grandfathers descending at the time of the canopy, “but they are ashamed of me because who I am and what I am in my many iniquities, but my son who is the rabbi of all Sanz communities in the US, the holy fathers are proud”, said the Rebbe as Messiah Because the Rebbe seeks in these words to crown his son as the rabbi of the community in the United States.
As mentioned, the third son serves as the rabbi of the Sanz community in Tiberias, the second son as the rabbi of the Sanz communities in the United States, while the eldest son, Rabbi Yechezkel Shraga Baruch Halberstam, serves as the youngest rabbi of Kiryat Sanz in Netanya.
Grimm Halberstam serves as the head of the Yeshiva Chassidic Yeshiva Network and is considered a dominant figure in the Yard and recently even went on strengthening visits to the US to strengthen Chassidim living in Brooklyn, Monsey and Lakewood.
