Inviting the community to partake in a eulogy for the Admor of Dej, R. Ezekiel ben Moses Panet (1870-1929). The Admor was known as an illui and for his great mental acuity. At the age of six he was already writing novellae on the Torah and at seven he was putting on tefillin. He was a great-grandson of R. Ezekiel ben Joseph Panet (17831845), grandson of R. Menahem Mendel of Des (1818-85), and the second son of R. Moses Panet of Des (1843-1902). R. Ezekiel was close to R. Ezekiel of Sianiawa. He married Hayyah Sarah, the daughter of R. Samuel Judah Pollack. R. Ezekiel Panet served, from 1895, as rabbi of Marousujvar, and, after the death of his father, as rabbi of Des, where he was accepted as Admor by many thousands of Hasidim.
