This Wednesday nite begins the Yahrtzeit of the Great Gaon and Tzadik - Harav Leibel'e Aiger Zy"a.
Rav Leibel'e Aiger was a grandson of the Gaon of his "Dor", Rav Akiva Aiger zt"l.
He was also a Talmid of the Cheidushei Hari'm zt"l.
Rav Leibe'le married a woman from Lublin where he set up residence. Lublin was a city considered a metropolis of Chassidus. The spirit of the "Choze" Of Lublin hovered over the city.
Rav Leibe'le davened in the Bais Medrash of the "Choze".
Subsequently he became close to the Kodosh Rav M. Mendel of Kotzk Zt"l. Eventually his grandfather, Rav Akiva Aiger zt"l embraced his grandson realizing that he truly was a great person.
In the "Kotzker" Rebbe's surroundings he met the "Ishbetzer" Zy"a. He became very devoted to the "Ishbetzer".
Rav Leibel'e Aiger was Niftar on the same day of the month as his Rebbe, The "Kotzker".
