1939 5699 ERETZ YISROEL

The seed of Belz Chassidus is planted in the Holy Land with the first Belzer Shteible in Jerusalem — thereby instigating the first step towards the building of Belz outside of Eastern Europe. 5 years later, on 9 Shevat 5704 (1944), two illustrious refugees, the holy Belzer Rebbe and his brother the Bilgorajer Rov will set foot in Eretz Yisroel and the reconstruction of an empire will begin.
