This past Shabbos, we were catching up on our reading from before Yom Tov.
We were reading the “This Day in History” column in the Features section (Sept. 13, 2018/Parashas Vayelech) about the Baal Shem of Michelstadt. The article stated that the& Baal Shem of Michelstadt, Reb Zeckel Leib Wormser, was buried in Worms. We would like to point out the following correction.
This past summer, my wife, son and I went to Germany to be mispallel at both the& Baal Shem of Michelstadt’s kever and the kever of Eliyahu Baal Shem (the Aderes Eliyahu).
The Baal Shem of Michelstadt is buried in Michelstadt. The Aderes Eliyahu/Eliyahu Baal Shem is buried in Worms.
