    A very interesting article in the Sunday News (May 17, 1953) about the Rabbi.

    I have re-typed it for clarity – original article link is below, following post.


    A Rabbi who blesses sweepstakes tickets, when asked by holders; who accurately describes people he has never seen, given only their names; who can, according to his followers, foretell the future, is living in the Bronx. where he is visited daily by men and women, Jew and non-Jew, seeking his advice.

    This is Rabbi Solomon Friedlander, member of an ancient Jewish sect, the Hassidim. For centuries Hassidic rabbis have been mystics and cabalist, believing there are meaning hidden within letters and numbers and the words of Scriptures.

    Rabbi Friedlander came to this country three years ago from his native Lisker, hungary, where he says his forebears had been rabbis for 500 years.

    He brought with him his wife and family and a large number of young people orphaned by the concentration camps. They live known a building at 2176 Grand Concourse, near 181st St., which was purchased by the Lisker Congregation and which is used as both a synagogue and home.

    The rabbi also brought with him ancient religious articles and books which are centuries old. “When the anniverssary of my grandfather’s death was observed in lisker, “ he said, “the Hungarian railroad reduced the price of tickets to Lisker, because so many people traveled there for that day”

    When the Rabbi’s daughter, leah, was married here last November, “there were 500 rabbis at her wedding”, her father said. pictures of the wedding were published in Holland, in the Katholick Illustratie, which used a Rembrandt painting to show the celebrity between the rabbis’ hats and beards and the subjects in the paintings.

    The rabbis’ study overlooks a Harp of David tree brought here from Jerusalem. There are those who say that when the congregation sings and dances (typical of Hassidic sects is their love of dancing and music), the tree also can be heard. It sounds like harp music, the followers say.

    Rabbi Friedlander is known by a hereditary title which can be translated as “Miracle Rabbi.” He says he is the only one remaining in the world; he does not perform miracles in the usual sense, but his blessings and prayers are believed to achieve miraculous results.

    The rabbis is fund of stories which he uses to illustrate his advice. Most of the stories are humorous; all of them are interesting, and many of them come from the writings of the ancient sages.

    Although the rabbi is a scholar and a mystic, some of his advice is extremely realistic.
