RebbeStory: Dr. Simeon Asher

The Zohar teaches that “A tzadik who departs is to be found in all worlds more than in his lifetime.” Because he is free of his corporeal limitations, the tzadik is able to grace those who connect to him with the full impact of his spiritual energies, imparting to them the love and fear of G-d, and showering them with abundant blessing and extraordinary miracles.

Upon the passing of his father-in-law and predecessor, the Rebbe advised people to continue jotting down their requests and to read the note (or place it on the table) in the room where he received people during his lifetime or at his graveside. “The Rebbe,” he said, “will find a way to respond.”

In a similar fashion, Jews around the globe today continue seeking direction, blessing, and advice from the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, visiting his resting place or slipping a note into a volume of his holy work. Here are their stories and how the Rebbe came through for them in extraordinary ways.
