Letter by R. Moses Joshua b. Hayyim Meir Hager (b.2015) - present Viznitzer Rebbe of Bnei Brak. The Vishnitz dynasty was founded approximately 150 years ago in the town Vishnitz, located in Bukowina a region in Romania, today a part of the Ukraine. It was founded by R. Menahem Mendel b. Hayyim Hager (1830–1884). After the death of his father, the zaddik of Kosov (1854), R. Menahem Mendel began to lead the community of Vizhnitz (Vizhnitsa) where he also served as av bet din. He became famous as a miracle worker and a distributor of amulets. He headed Kolel Vizhnitz and Maramuresh, a fund for the poor in Ereẓ Israel. His work Zemah Zaddik (1885) was written in the spirit of hasidic Kabbalah.
