Machnovke on its way to the Supreme Court


Officially Chassidut Machnovke (Bnei Brak) is calling itself "Belz - Machnovke". Fact is that Machnovke and the "real" Belzer together with their Rebbe Yissachar Dov Rokeach have been fighting for many years. Machnovke wants to be part of Belz but the Belzer don't want them.

Two years ago, a Belzer Chassid (some say a donor of Machnovke) was attacked by Belzer Chassidim when he went to the grave of the former Belzer Rebbe Aharon Rokeach (the uncle of the present Rebbe). The Belzer, on the other hand claim, that they didn't attack the particular Chassid.

The Belzer Beit Midrash in Jerusalem

Now the Machnovke Rebbe asked the secular Israeli Supreme Court to allow the police to protect the Machnovke Rebbe while he is visiting the grave of Rebbe Aharon on his Yahrzeit. Just in case that the Belzer may attack him as well.
