Last week, the QJL introduced our readership to the holy work of HaGaon Rav Mordechai Jungreis shlit”a, the Nikolsburg Rebbe of the Woodbourne Shul, Congregation Bnei Israel, Zichron Mordechai. Over the past week, the rebbe continued to spread his awe-inspiring love for every Jew who entered the renowned Catskill’s makom kedushah. From a hachnasas sefer Torah and a hachnasas t’filin to the delivery of new seating, and the continued efforts to enhance the shul and its new kollel, the rebbe kept a full schedule, uniting all walks of klal Yisrael. Most notable was the rebbe’s influence on teenagers, filling the beis hamedrash with song and dance on more than one occasion. Some guests included Yisroel Besser, noted ArtScroll author and contributing editor at Mishpacha Magazine; Rabbi Ephraim Glatt, Assistant Rabbi, YIKGH; Chaim Kurz of Windsor Pharmacy; Shea Rubenstein, Executive VP, JCCMP; and Elie Rowe, President, Hatzolah Emergency Air Response Team.
