. Pair of Rashi tefillin owned by the Gahach Rabbi Gad’l Eisner, also worn by the Admor the Nahalat Dan of Mozhitz at the end of his life.
Pair of tefillin worn by Rabbi Gad’l Eisner, the mashgiach of the Chiddushei HaRim yeshiva of Gur in Tel Aviv, since his arrival in Israel following the Shoah. The parshiyot were written by one of Jerusalem’s sofers at the beginning of the 1940s, and they are placed in the housings, with the same boxes and case used by the mashgiach. Around a year before the Admor the Nahalat Dan of Mozhitz passed away, he asked to have his tefillin checked after he became bedridden, and they were found psulim—this pair of tefillin were lent to the Admor and he wore them until he died.
The mythic mashgiach Rabbi Gad Eisner (1903-1985) was the son of Rabbi Yitzhak Shlomo and was known affectionately by his students as Rav Gad’l. At the request of the Admor HaLev Simcha he was appointed mashgiach at the Chiddushei HaRim yeshiva after surviving the Lodz ghetto. He was among the most beloved of his students’ teachers. The Rebbe HaBais Yisrael of Gur said of him that he consecrated an oleh of tshuva, and the Lev Simcha said he was the mechanech of all mechanchim.
The Admor Rabbi Yisrael Dan Taub of Mozhitz (1928-2006) was the son of the Admor Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu Taub of Tel Aviv, son-in-law of Rabbi Shmuel Aharon Shazdarovitzky the Admor of Bialystock (Kovrin dynasty). He was the 4th admor of the Mozhitz line, a member of the Council of Torah Sages, and before that served as Safra d’Dina of the Beit Din in Tel Aviv for around 35 years. He established the Imrei Esh yeshiva in his father’s name. In line with the Mozhitz tradition, known for its niggunim, he composed hundreds of niggurim, some of which have been adopted in many outside Jewish communities. His Torah, expressed in Ma’amarei Orayta and Nahalat Dan, is continued by his sons and successors, the admorim Rabbi Haim Shaul of Mozhitz and Rabbi Pinchas Moshe of Kozmir.
