Marking twenty-five years since the opening of the Tchortkover kloiz in Antwerp, Tiferes Yisrael, the Rebbes of the Ruzhiner dynasty from Eretz Yisrael, shlita, traveled to Belgium to take part in a special dinner for the kloiz. The event was aptly named Malchus L’Yisrael.

A kabbalas panim was held Sunday afternoon in the kloiz, with the attendance of the Rebbes, shlita. Several local Rabbanim also spoke at the kabbalas panim, including Harav Aharon Schiff, Mara D’asra, welcoming the Rebbes on their historic visit.

A gala dinner was held Sunday night, and a joint minyan of the Rebbes, shlita, was held Monday morning in Antwerp’s Osten shul.
