Three rare photographs of the Admor of Belz, Rabbi Yissachar Dov Rokeach shlit"a [b. 1948].

The holy Admor Rabbi Yissachar Dov Rokeach of Belz [the second] the fifth in the chassidic dynasty, nephew of Rabbi Aharon Rokeach - the previous Admor, who raised him after he was orphaned of his father at the age of two. After his uncle's passing in 1957 with no descendants, the heads of the chassidut waited for the boy - who was then only nine years old - to grow up and become Admor. As such, Rabbi Yissachar Dov earned the nickname "HaYanuka." Under his leadership, the chassidut grew and became established and turned into a chassidut comprising thousands of families in Israel and in the diaspora, mainly in Europe and North Africa.

Two photographs sized 10x7 cm., one photograph sized 14x9 cm.

Fine condition.
