7errer Rebbe
Lt;hasidic Leader

;RABBI CHASKEL GRUBNER

_Special to The Jewish News

ver 100,000 people
accompanied the fun-
eral casket of the late
Gerrer Rebbe, Grand Rabbi
Simcha Bunim Alter, on Ju-
ly 8 in Jerusalem. He was
buried next to his brother, the
Gerrer Rebbe, Grand Rabbi
-israel Alter, known as the
Bais Yisroel.
The Gerrer Rebbe was the
leader of the Gerrer Chasidic
movement, and a leader of the
Moetzet Gedolai Hatorah (the
Council of Sages) of the
,-- gudat Yisroel. He held the
position of leadership not on-
Fly for his own Chasdic group,
1 but was also a major voice
representing Orthodox Jewry.
In 1977, at the age of 80, he
assumed the mantle from his
ate brother.
The Rebbe's leadership was
[ based on unification with
other groups. He had a sharp
mind and constantly showed
his wisdom and his practical
outlook. His outlook was very
a broad and constantly
expanding.
Shortly after becoming the
Rebbe, he started a revolution
in Gur. The economic and
social problems in Israel did
not let him rest. He said
many times he could not sleep
as a result. When some young

,

followers died, he attributed
it to pressures caused by feel-
ing the need for luxuries. He
was opposed to the debts caus-
ed by fancy affairs, to living in
expensive apartments in
large and polluted Israeli
cities, and to all other forms
of fiscal irresponsibility and
waste.
rlb put his more austere life-
style views into practice, he
introduced the idea of
creating Torah institutions in
places such as Arad, Asdod
and Hatzor where cheaper ac-
commodations could be found.
Though by nature polite,
the Gerrer Rebbe was very
strong-willed about anything
that he felt was not right or
just. This is a great loss, not
only for Gur, but for all of us.
The Council of Orthodox Rab-
bis joins all of Israel in mour-
ning the loss of this world
leader. 0

Rabbi Grubner is director of
the Council of Orthodox
Rabbis of Greater Detroit.
