About Rabbi Menachem Mendel Hager, Viznitz Rebbe of Bnei Brak

Rabbi Menachem Mendel Hager (born November 28, 1957) is one of the two Grand Rabbis of the Vizhnitz Hasidic dynasty in Bnei Brak and a current member of Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah (Council of great Torah Sages) of the Agudat Yisrael movement.

Rabbi Mendel was born in Israel to Grand Rabbi Moshe Yehoshua Hager, the previous spiritual leader of the Vizhnitzer Hassidim and to Rebbetzin Leah Esther; the daughter of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Paneth of Deyzh who perished in the Holocaust, and after whom Rabbi Mendel was named. He is the youngest of six siblings. As a child, he received his education in the Vizhnitz educational institutions. About a year after his Bar Mitzvah, he traveled to the United States to study in the Skverer Yeshiva. In 1976, he married Rebbetzin Miriam, daughter of Rabbi Avrohom Dovid Horowitz (deceased) who served as the Chief Rabbi of the Ultra-orthodox community in Strasbourg, France, and later as a member of the Edah HaChareidis in Jerusalem.
