The Boyan Hasidim of Israel, together with their leader, the American-born Rabbi Nachum Brayer, recently braved wind-swept rains and cold temperatures to ascend to the Mt. of Olives to pay tribute to their legendary leader.
Rabbi Mordechai Shlomo Friedman, the present day Rebbe's maternal
grandfather, led the Boyan Hasidim for more than fifty years until his
passing in 1971. This year marks the 40th year of his passing.
In the following audio slideshow, exclusive to the The Jerusalem Post
, the Boyan Hasidim pray on the Mt. of Olives, chanting at a Hasidic tisch, or festive meal, in honor of Rabbi Friedman.
