Weekly Story: The Power of Chitas

In 1954, Rabbi Leib Friedman was invited to the wedding of Rav Chaim Chaikel’s youngest child. The wedding was well attended, as Rav Chaim was the Rosh HaYeshiva of Yeshivas Chayei Olam in Yerushalayim, and the multitudes of his students of many decades came to participate in his happiness. However, the happiness was bitter sweet, as their beloved Rosh Hayeshiva who had difficulties in walking for many years, had now lost all movement and sensation in his feet, and he was brought to the wedding in his special “hospital” bed.
