Bochrim from the Gerer Yeshiva Visit The Ohel

A group of 70 Bochrim from the Gerer Yeshiva came to the Ohel to daven and farbreng with the Rebbe’s Mazkir Rabbi Leibel Groner.

Rabbi Groner spoke for two hours about the Rebbe’s Sichos on Peisach-Sheiney, and the special connection between the Rebbes of Chabad and Ger.

The Rosh Yeshiva requested of Rabbi Groner that the Bochurim could ask questions in writing.

Two of the Talmidim introduced themselves as being the grandson and great grandson of the Rosh Yeshiva of 770, Harav Hagoen Reb Yisroel Piekarsky OBM.

    The article covers the story quite well. The Bochrim came to the Ohel for Peisach-Sheiney. The Rosh Yeshivah called Rabbi Groner to farbreng with this group.

    He spoke about Peisach-Sheiney adding the flavor of the Rebbes Sichos.

    There was a request for questions, but being bashful, they asked to write their requests.

    Rabbi Groner took “10 shielos”. The topics of discussion were, the relationship between the Rebbe and the Admurei Ger and the Rebbes holy daily avoide.

    Rabbi Groner spoke eloquently and prefaced his comments by saying, that there are things in the category of “ SOYDES FUN CHIEDER”.

    Moishe – what do you mean "how did they end up"?

    Piekarsky was not a Lubavitcher Chosid.
