< Back

[Rabbi Shulem Moshkovitz, 1877-1958,
whose grave site has become a point of pilgrimage for supplicants
from around the world, particularly on Friday (Erev Shabbos)]

Dear Rabbi Simon,
We live overseas and we would like to visit the Shotzer Rebbe’s kever on Erev Shabbos. Do you know if there are organized buses which go there? Does the kabbalah [personal commitment to perform a mitzvah or other meritorious behaviour] have to be connected to Shabbos?  Is the minhag one/two kabbalos?
Many thanks,
Rachel

Hi Rachel,
You have not indicated where you will be on Erev Shabbos from which location you would like to travel to the Shotzer Rebbe’s kever. I can recommend http://www.emesscarservice.com/index.html who serve the Jewish community principally, and no doubt know their way to the Shotzer Rebbe’s kever well (Adath Yisroel Cemetery in Enfield, Carterhatch Lane, EN1 4BE; location is clearly marked within the cemetery.)
If you are in the Golders Green area try 07949 770 049 https://dhshuttle.co.uk/. They have (or had: be sure to confirm this yourself) a shuttle service every Friday 10:00am. £10pp round trip.
The Q&A here https://kesher.org.uk/knowledge-base/graves-of-tzaddikim-in-london/ may be of interest.
One kabbalah which is actually upheld is the right way to go. It need not be Shabbos-related.
Best wishes
Rabbi Rashi Simon

Ask the Rabbi: Quinoa on Pesach
Dear Rabbi Simon,
Where do you stand on quinoa (and the kitniyot ban) for Pesach?
Many thanks,
Tzippy

Dear Tzippy,
In line with other American authorities, I am in favour of quinoa. Although I reject completely the voices (mostly from Israel) seeking to abolish the ban on kitniyot entirely, IMO we do not need to include in the prohibition pseudo-grains that were unknown in the Old World until modern times. Best to buy with a Pesach hechsher though, to be free of any possible wheat contamination.
