Prayers in Romania For Lapid's Great-Great Grandfather


A delegation from Israel is scheduled to travel to Romania for the 139th yahrzeit (memorial date) for Rabbi Shmuel Shmelke Klein. The revered rabbi was the author of the book Tsror HaChayim [also spelled Tzror haChaim] which is still taught in many institutes of Torah learning in the modern era. He is the great-great grandfather of Finance Minister Yair Lapid (Yesh Atid).
