Scheduled to take place this week Shabbos Parshas Mishpatim

Baltimore, MD - Feb. 8, 2024 - Any Yid in need knows he can go to the Skulener Rebbe, shlit”a, the son and successor of the legendary previous Skulener Rebbe, zt”l, where he can be sure to find the help and support he needs. Stories abound of people who were zoche to tremendous yeshuos after receiving a bracha from the Skulener Rebbe zt”l, paving the path for the current Skulener Rebbe who is following closely in his father’s venerated footsteps.

The Rebbe shlit”a - much like his illustrious father, whose heart beat with the pain of every Yid and whose door was open wide to a constant flow of individuals seeking his bracha, his counsel and financial aid from his tzedakah fund - welcomes Yidden from all over the globe, who find a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, a welcome embrace, and practical and financial aid to ease their burdens.

Perpetuating his father’s legacy, the Rebbe’s tzedakah fund finances hundreds of worthy causes, thousands of people in need, and particularly, the aid of almanos and yesomim. Presently, the Rebbe spends millions of dollars annually, alleviating the burden of bereaved almanos and restoring the spirits of yesomim, while availing himself to listen to their painful tales of struggle and hardship, providing encouragement and guidance, and holding their hand in his inimitable manner. His fund also covers Yom Tov costs of Yidden in need, medical expenses of those facing illness, and provides hachnasas kallah aid to families who are financially strapped.

We are excited to announce that the Rebbe will be visiting our very own Baltimore on Shabbos Parshas Mishpatim, in accompaniment of hundreds of his chassidim who don’t want to miss this legendary opportunity. The Rebbe will stay in town from Wednesday, February 7, 2024 until Wednesday, February 14, 2024, at the home of R’ Elie Miller. In addition to multiple speaking engagements in the local mosdos, the Rebbe will also make himself available to local Yidden, and we will have a chance to go in to the Rebbe privately to seek his bracha and sage counsel.

On Shabbos, we will have the opportunity to experience the Rebbe’s Friday night tisch. The Rebbe’s famous tischen are an uplifting experience, drawing hundreds of participants each week in New York. Hundreds of Yidden are expected to fill the Bais Hamedrash on Friday night to get a taste of what it feels like to be a part of a Skulener tisch, sing the warm niggunim and listen to inspiring divrei Torah.

The Rebbe’s visit will also be an opportunity for us to contribute to the Rebbe’s holy tzedakah fund, thus enabling him to continue to generously support the multitudes of needy individuals and the hundreds of bereaved families, whose bastion of support he has been throughout the years.

The first time Baltimore, the very city where the previous Rebbe, zt”l, spent the last few weeks of his holy life, was honored with a visit from the Rebbe, shlit”a, was two years ago, on the occasion of his son’s Shabbos sheva brachos. That uplifting Shabbos was held in Mercas Torah u’Tefilla, the magnificent Bais Hamedrash of the Rebbe’s mechutan, Rabbi Eichenstein, shlit”a. Hundreds of Yidden accompanied the Rebbe from New York to partake in that historic event.

The Yidden of Baltimore have been waiting for the Rebbe to grace our city with another visit, so we can cherish another opportunity to spend time with the Rebbe and bask in his presence. Therefore, we are pleased to report that the upcoming Shabbos Parshas Mishpatim, Shabbos Rosh Chodesh Adar I, was designated as the week that the Rebbe is set to return. Once again, the Rebbe will be davening and conducting his tischen in Rabbi Eichenstein’s shul, Mercas Torah u’Tefillah.

As the big Shabbos nears, the askanim are hard at work arranging accommodations for the multitudes of guests who are expected to accompany the Rebbe on this momentous visit.

We are looking out for another special, uplifting Shabbos, and there is great anticipation to yet again experience a Skulener Shabbos firsthand.
