A Story of the Rebbe You Can ‘Witness’ Yourself

    But funnily, there was another Zalman (Zalman Goldstein) who was asked by Rabbi Yoram Ulman (of Sydney) to travel to play music at a Simchas Beis Hashoeiva in NJ that night, but Zalman wanted to stay local to 770. But after hearing the Rebbe speak so directly, he obviously packed his equipment in his van and traveled to NJ to be “mesameach yiddin” — as the Rebbe alluded directly to his situation.

    So we see, sometimes the Rebbe’s words can mean multiple things to multiple people!

    BTW, the sicha continues, “Schneur Zalman, fohr arois fun shtut un zeit misameach yidden!”

    Loosely translated: “Schneur Zalman, go, travel, and make yidden happy!”
