The Haluka of RabbeinuRavItzikl of Pshevorsk.
The kaftan of the tzaddik of Antwerp, Rabbi Moshe Yitzhak Gewirtzman—Rabbi Itzikl of Pshevorsk. The upper garment used by RabbeinuItzikl during his lifetime, passed down to his son-in-law and successor, Rabbi Yaakov Laizer, Rabbi Yankele, who continued his father-in-law’s ways and gave the holy garment to a groom who was an orphan and lived in Antwerp and moved to Israel to get married: “since I cannot participate in your wedding, take this holy garment with you to wear under your chuppah so that the zechut of the great tzaddik will safeguard you.” The groom was very successful, and later gave it as a gift to his family in Israel after returning to the Diaspora. The kaftan is preserved in very good condition, other than typical wear. Rabbi Moshe Yitzhak Gewirtzman was born on January 3, 1882, in Gorlitz, Galicia, grandson of Rabbi Elimelech of Lizhensk. After his marriage, he moved to the town of Pshevorsk where he served as president, four children were born to him and to a rebbetzin who died in her youth And left him alone to raise their children, and unfortunately Rabbeinu lost his only son, Rabbi Yosef Chaim, and two of his daughters and sons-in-law in the terrible Shoah, when he was exiled with his son-in-law Rabbi Ya'akovLeizer. 1949, Rabbi settled in Paris, the capital of France, where he worked very hard for the local Jews and from there relocated his residence and established it in the city of Antwerp, Belgium where the light spread to all the Jewish world. On the 10th of Tishrei, Yom Kippur 5737 (October 4, 1976), he died and was buried in the Jewish cemetery of Fitta in the Netherlands and was succeeded by his son-in-law Rabbi Ya'akovLeizer - Rabbi Yankele (December 23, 1906 - November 16, 1998), who continued his path with his greatness, charity and kindness, and became famous for his immeasurable charity.
