Description
   Eulogy on R. Joshua Roke'ah, Admor of Belz.

R. Joshua b. Shalom Roke'ah (1825–1894) provided Belz Hasidism with the organizational framework which maintained it as the focus of Hasidism in Galicia, and ruled his community strictly. One of the leaders of Orthodox Jewry in Galicia, he was prominent in the opposition to Haskalah. He initiated the establishment of the Mahazikei ha-Dat organization and the Orthodox newspaper Kol Mahazikei ha-Dat. As a result of the cultural and social tensions in Galician Jewry, the Belz zaddikim adopted an extreme stand and resisted every new idea emanating from non-Orthodox circles. Some of Joshua's teachings are published in Ohel Yehoshu'a (printed with Dover Shalom, 1910).
