Who is the Rebbe in this Video? Rav Nahum?

Beautiful Melaveh Malka, but I'm also curious who this is.

blessings. the you tube with the happy singing and dancing and your question, about R Nachum, does this mean you or others do not know the person and who is R Nachum? looking forward to your reply.

R' Nachum Cohen is a well known and respected Mekubal/Tzaddik who is known for his special Brocha's, especially regarding couples. who are having trouble having babies.
He's so widely known that R' Pesach Krohn tells a story where he comes across R' Nachum on a trip to Africa.....

The People's Champ,

Thank you! Do you know where he lives? Does he have a yeshiva? How do you know him?

I was zocha to be by him a number of times for brochas.
True story. When he was in town 6 years ago I went to wish him Shalom and tell him I had a boy for a Mazel Tov. A friend of mine who was having trouble at the time to conceive (their 2nd) asked me to take him. To make a long story short my friend couldnt come. I gave Rav Nachum his name- he said MAZEL TOV (his trademark after giving a brocha), they have nothing to worry about- they will have a child within 9 months.
Well, little did they know (until a few days later) his wife was already pregnant.
I met him through a close friend of mine is very close with him.
He has a yeshiva and lives, I believe, in Geulah.

TPC,

Thank you for sharing that. That's a great story. He sounds like such a sweet Tzadik. IY"H, I'll be zocheh to meet him one day.

HaRav Nachum Cohen lives in Geula in Yerushalayim, on Rechov Rav Nachum.
He has 19 kids and when he and his wife A'H were married, they could not have kids. They received a brocha from the Chazon Ish that at least they Chai (life) turned out to be at least chai (18). That is why his brochas for couples are so powerful. I was zocha to eat at his Shabbos table many times and know from others that there is definitely Ruach Hakodesh present.

reb dixie,
can you locate a number for Rav Nachum, for those of us who want to call him, and get a brocha from him. He has a beautiful hadras panim as well.

I don't know if R' Nachum Cohen would want his home and cell phone numbers advertised in public on the internet. If someone would like his phone number, please e-mail me and I will pass on the phone numbers that anon 1:46 left in his comment. Toda raba & gut Shabbos!
