Enjoy NoamElimelechToldos

Reb Yaakov Leiser (6 Tevet 1907 - 27 Cheshvan 1998) became the second
Pshevorsker Rebbe in 1976. Like his father-in-law and founder of the
dynasty, Rabbi Moshe Yitzchak Gevirzman, great-grandson of the Rebbe
Elimelech, "Reb Yankele" did not seek to open a network of
institutions. Even so, specially chartered planes would bring hundreds
of chasidim to Antwerp for every Yom Tov and occasion. Among the
visitors were often those who had come seeking salvation of one type
or another. Hundreds of stories abound about his Divine inspiration
and the miracles that he performed. His only son, Rabbi Leibish
Leizer, is the current Pshevorsker Rebbe.
