Son Of 68-Year-Old Mother Has Upsherin


Shimon Chaim, born three years ago to a couple in their 60s after they received a brocha from the former Nadvorna Rebbe, had an upsherin on Lag Ba’omer shortly before his third birthday.

At the time of his birth, his parents, Rav Shmuel Shachar and his wife Miriam, were 67 and 65 years old and had been childless for 46 years.

Rav Shmuel took his son to the present Nadvorna Rebbe for the upsheren and received a brocha that he should continue to have nachas from his son.

  1. @This Whole Story – Your comment sounds more like one of those “if I were G-d” or more accurately “if G-d were me.” While it’s hard to believe, it’s even harder to live it, that HKB”H runs this world and among the three items which are not given to a shaliach, is child birth. So, let them raise this wonderful child, this gift from the Ribono Shel Olam, and leave your personal philosophies out of the picture.

  2. Whatever. A gift from Hashem should be acknowledged. Chasdei Hashem ki lo somu, ki lo somu rachamov.
    Mazel tov!
