Thousands Attend Yahrzeit Of R' Elimelech Of Lizensk Zt’l

Chasidim from all over the world prayed at the grave of Tzadik Elimelech. Pilgrims arrived in Lezajsk to commemorate the 236th anniversary of the tzadik’s death. The main celebrations took place on the night of Monday to Tuesday.

Reb Elimelech of Leżajsk (according to some, Weissblum after his mother, and according to others, Lipmann after his father) was one of the three most famous tzaddikim of past Poland. He became famous as a healer of souls and bodies and as the most active preacher of Hasidism – a rebellious religious and mystical trend in Judaism.
