About Yechiel Menachem יחיאל מנחם Zynger זינגר, [Fifth Aleksanderer Rebbe (USA)]

Alexander Hasidism today

\n

After the Holocaust, the Jewish world was in a daze. Many chassidim who lost their Rebbes joined other chassidic groups with similar teachings. Many Aleksander chassidim believed that Chassedei Aleksander was completely destroyed. Many survivors sought to find a new Rebbe and to rebuild Aleksander chassidus. The chassidim first approached the son of the Betzalel Yair, nephew of the Akeidas Yitzchak, Rabbi Yechiel Menachem Zynger, and asked him to become the Rebbe of Aleksander. Zynger, who worked as a diamond dealer in Boro Park at the time, rejected the request to assume leadership of Aleksander chassidus, claiming that Aleksander was wiped out and there was nothing left to lead. Later on, when Alexander Chasidus in Israel was rebuilt, he agreed to become the Alexanderer Rebbe in America.

\n

Today there are two Grand Rebbes of Alexander, one in Bnei Brak, Israel, and one in America in the Borough Park section of Brooklyn, New York. There are around seven hundred Aleksander chassidim living in communities in Bnei Berak, Jerusalem, Borough Park Brooklyn NY, Antwerp, London, and Australia.

Personal

\n

After the Nazi Germany invasion of Russia in 1941 in WWII, Yechiel Menachem and his future brother in-law, Isaac Topola, and other Yeshiva fellow students escaped to Lithuania and in 1942 were given "transit visas" to Japan, by the Japanese Consul (an act of mercy of the consul, contrary to his government orders). They traveled through Siberia and China, and settled in Shanghai in the Jewish Ghetto, where the Shanghai Jewish community helped them survive. They lived there and studied in a Yeshiva in the Ghetto until 1945. Itche came down with severe pneumonia and almost died. Chil-Menachem saved his life by purchasing penicillin for him ($300/shot - in 1945!). When the war ended, both went through Moscow on their way to the USA, but were required to pay a $500 "fine" to get exit visas from the Soviet Union. Lacking the money, the poor students appealed to the Jewish community in the Moscow synagogue, and the money was raised (illegally, in US currency), and they were able to leave. They came to the USA in 1946, and Yechiel Menachem married Rachel Topola, Isaac's youngest sister.
