Child Born After 46 Years Celebrated His ‘Chalaka’

The child born to a couple after 46 years of marriage marked his chalaka this Lag B’Omer. The child was born to a 67-year-old father and a 65-year-old mother and he had his hair cut by the Nadvorna Rebbe Shlita with his now 70-year-old father standing by all smiles.

For this couple, the simcha is indeed something special and by the smiles evident on the face of the rebbe and others, it was a special event for all present.

The child, Shimon Chaim, was named after Rashbi and in thanks to the Admor, the Be’er Yaakov of Nadvorna ZT”L who promised the couple they would merit hugging a son and he would do everything possible to make sure of this. Shimon Chaim was born on 29 Iyar 5775 to Rav Shmuel Shachar and his wife Miriam.

Rav Shmuel brought his only child to the rebbe, in Meron, for his chalaka. There was much joy as they placed tzitzis on Shimon Chaim and he made a bracha, as he was showered with brachos.
