Hassidic Rebbe Arrives from U.S. in Israel for Permanent Settlement

Hundreds of hassidim waited patiently many hours last night for the arrival of the delayed plane carrying Rabbi Samuel Ehrenfeld, the Mattersdorf Rebbe and his family.

They welcomed the Rebbe with songs and dances. Rabbi Ehrenfeld, who came from the United States to live in his new settlement near Jerusalem, arrived with his family of seven children and their wives and many grandchildren.
