Blast Rocks Kiev: Explosion targets JN1 owner Vadim Rabinovich


An investigation is underway in Ukraine after an explosion in the country’s capital Kiev appeared to target Jewish News One channel owner Vadim Rabinovich. A bomb was thrown at Rabinovich’s vehicle as it exited the JN1 office complex in downtown Kiev early afternoon on 4 March. Nobody was hurt in the blast, which caused damage to the vehicle and smashed windows in surrounding buildings. Investigators are exploring the possibility that the attack could be linked to allegations that figures tied to the Ukrainian government attempted to seize control of JN1 earlier in 2013. As reported by JN1 and other international media, Rabinovich responded by appealing to Ukraine’s Prosecutor General’s office

מטלטל-האדמור מקאליב מספר על היותו בשואה-מרגש

24.03.2014 נולד במרגיטה שבטרנסילבניה למשפחת אדמו”רים צאצאי רבי יצחק אייזיק מקאליב. נישא לחנה שרה שפרה טאוב (תרע”ח, 1918 -כ”ד בכסלו תשע”ב, דצמבר 2011), בתו של רבי פנחס שפירא מקעכניא. ב-1939 נפטר אביו בהותירו אחריו 7 יתומים. לאחר כיבוש הונגריה על ידי הגרמנים ב-1944, מנחם מנדל עם כל אחיו ואחיותיו נשלחו לאושוויץ וכל אחיו נספו שם. הוא שרד אך עבר עינויים קשים, בהם טיפול כימי המונע מזקנו לצמוח. לאחר השואה עבר לשבדיה, שם התאחד עם אשתו שפרה (נפטרה בשנת ה’תשע”ב). לאחר מכן עבר לארצות הברית. ב-1963 הקים את מרכז חסידי קאליב בראשון לציון (קריית קאליב) ובשנת 1980 עבר לבני ברק, שם הקים את מרכז חסידות קאליב ברחוב השומר. בשנת תשס”ב עבר להתגורר בירושלים ברחוב חנה.
האדמו”ר מקאליב הוא אחד מגדולי מנציחי השואה כיום. הוא תיקן את אמירת שמע ישראל בסיום כל תפילה לזכר הניספים, וכמו כן מעודד אמירת “שמע ישראל” כזכר לקדושי השואה בסיום עצרות המוניות בציבור הדתי והחרדי. בשנים האחרונות הוא החל במפעל אנציקלופדיה לשואה לציבור החרדי ופועל להקמת מוזיאון לשואה עבור הציבור החרדי, שיהיה מוזיאון משלים ליד ושם, לאחר שלדבריו לא מנציחים מספיק את גבורתם הרוחנית של היהודים שמסרו נפשם לקיים מצוות גם בשנים ההן.
באייר תשע”ב, לאחר פטירת אשתו הראשונה, והוא בן 89, התחתן בשנית עם שיינדיל מלניק (נולדה בשנת תש”ט)מוויניצא אוקראנה ואחר מכן מבני ברק
