The Erlau’er Rebbe, Rebbe Moshe Sofer Shlita, will be visiting Lakewood this coming Sunday, marking the Rebbe’s first visit here since the passing of his father, the Baal Imrei Sofer. The Ball Imrei Sofer was Niftar just over a year ago.
The Baal Imrei Sofer’s father, the Bal Yad Sofer, was the son of the Erlau’er Rav – Rav Shimon Sofer, the Bal Hisorreres Teshuva. Rav Shimon Sofer’s father traces his lineage directly to the Chasam Sofer.
The Erlau’er Rebbe will be staying at the home of R’ Itche Rosenbaum.
The schedule for Sunday includes a visit to the Rosh Yeshiva Harav Malkier Kotler. A Rosh Chodesh Tisch is planned as well, with the participation of Rabbonim and Roshei Yeshia.
On Sunday evening, chassidim and the general public will have the chance to have a private audience with the Rebbe.
The Rebbe is also scheduled to visit various schools and Yeshivas during his stay in Lakewood.
