Moshe Weintraub Sings In Poland

Singer Moshe Weintraub from Israel sings at the Bais Medrash of Rabbi Yaakov Yitzchak of Lublin Know's as the The Chozeh of Lublin in  Lantzut, Poland on August 2011

A leading figure in the early Chasidic movement, he became known as the chozeh, which means "seer" or "visionary" in Hebrew, due to his great intuitive powers (he was actually nearly blind). He was a disciple of the Maggid of Mezritch. He continued his studies under Rabbi Shmelke of Nilkolsburg and Rabbi Elimelech of Lizhensk. He lived for a while in Lantzut before moving to Lublin.
