A Story of the Rebbe You Can ‘Witness’ Yourself

Rabbi Mendy Paltiel, Shliach to Laguna Niguel, CA, shared on Whatsapp a remarkable, personal story of the Rebbe he heard from fellow Shliach Rabbi Zalman Marcus of Mission Viejo, CA. A short while later, a recording of the Rebbe’s Sicha surfaced that verifies the story to the tee, allowing everyone to “witness” it for themselves.

The following is an audio clip of Rabbi Paltiel sharing the story:

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!”
