Group to mark 115th Yahrtzeit of Tal Chaim of Liska in Liska
In honor of the 115th Yahrtzeit of the Tal Chaim of Liska upcoming on 9 Iyar ( May 12-14) a trip to Liska, Hungary has been announced.
Liska is a revered name in Chasidishe circles from time immemorial and is universally regarded as one of the more prominent Hungarian Chasidish dynasties that appealed to the masses for close to two hundred years yet hailed by scholars for its sharp and vast Torah scholarship.
Although it is Rav Tzvi Hersh of Liska author Ach Pri Tevuah and Hayasher V’hatov that is world famous, his son in law and successor Rav Chaim of Liska author of Tal Chaim on sugyas Hashas was acknowledged as an extraordinary gaon even in the generation that he lived and a recognized poel yeshous.
In fact, it was Sanzer Rov who documented the yichus of the Tal Chaim, upon his marriage to the daughter of the Ach Pri Tevuah, that the Tal Chaim is the 6th generation descendant from the Maharsha.
The trip will also be davening at his holy kever with a yahrtzeit seudah at the newly restored site of the shul which includes the last remaining wall that was preserved and reinforced, complemented by the construction of a corresponding wall where the entrance to the shul once stood. The Tal Chaim is buried alongside his father-in-law the Ach Pri Tevuah in the ohel in Liska.
Preceding the visit to Liska the group will also daven by the various tzadikim who are buried in the various towns of the Hungarian countryside.
