  1. No link to the work of a famous Munkatcher chossid, the Em Habonim Semeicho.


  2. Munkatch is highly anti-Zionist

  3. The page in Wiki has been censored by many hands.Firstly, no mention is made of the previous rebbe’s resignation, with details about his life afterwards. Secondly, there was a link there to a page about the brother of the present rebbe, and that page was removed! Typical Munkatcher/Hungarian politics at work… 🙂

  4. The stuff on the previous rebbe is on his page. Interesting!

  5. Anonymously Anonymous

    Do they have Divrei Nevonim by the current Rebbe’s father? It is well known that he was shunned by the Chasidim and is called a derogatory name until this day.

  6. Eugen Schoenfeld

    Do you have any information regarding publication of sefarim by Naftuli Schonfeld? He published book cc 1860-70 in Munkacs.

  7. What a prolific chassidus, with every rebbe a true chochom and ilui, regardless of the degree to which their politics may have differed.
