About Grand Rabbi Menachem Mendel Hager [First Vizhnitzer Rebbe]

Menachem Mendel Hager

Menachem Mendel Hager was born on May 17, 1830 in Kosiv. He was the son of Rabbi Chaim Hager of Kosiv and the son-in-law of Rabbi Yisroel Friedman of Ruzhyn.

He was appointed Rebbe at the age of 24, and soon after he moved to Vyzhnytsia, a small town close to Kosiv.

As his reputation grew, so did his followers. He became known and admired for his charitable acts, sincerity in prayer and love for Eretz Yisrael. In his older years he endeavored to emigrate to there.

He had two sons, Reb Boruch and another, Reb Yaakov Dovid, who died during his lifetime.

His son-in-law was the son of Rabbi Yehoshua Rokeach of Belz, Reb Shmuel of Sokal.

His Torah thoughts were published under the title Tzemach Tzaddik.

He died on October 18, 1884 and was buried in Vyzhnytsia. His son Reb Boruch took his place becoming the second Rebbe of Vizhnitz.
