A segula item of clothing: the kippah of the Admor Rabbi Mordechai Hager of Viznitz. Monsey
Black, raised velvet kippah in the shape of a hexagon, according to the minhag of the rabbis and Admorim of Romania—this is the kippah worn by the Rebbe, Rabbi Motel’eh [as he was known affectionately by the righteous of Israel], the Admor of Viznitz, who lived in Munsey NY, the kippah with which he labored in Torah, in his enthusiastic prayers in the well-known Viznitz style, or in his teachings where he spent countless nights. An extremely rare and exciting item! Wear and rips in the stitches at the borders (light), generally very good condition. The Admor Rabbi Mordechai Hager of Viznitz (1922-2018) was the son of the Admor Rabbi Haim Meir (the Imrei Haim of Viznitz). He served as Admor in Munsey for 46 years. In his youth he learned under the tutelage of his grandfather, the “Ahavat Yisrael” of Viznitz, and was a student of Rabbi Yoel Teitelbaum of Satmar and Rabbi Yosef Greenwald of Papa. He survived the Shoah and married the daughter of the Admor, Rabbi Yaakov Yosef of Skvira. After her early death, he married her younger sister, moved to the USA with his father-in-law the Admor of Skvira, served as a rabbi for the Viznitz community in Boro Park and Williamsburg, and in 1964 he moved to Munsey where he established his community of followers. He later established additional communities in Israel and around the world. Today, after his death, his sons serve as Admorim around the world.
