Video: “The Rebbe Told Me to Enter the Air Force”

Rabbi Henry Isaacs served as rabbi on Bangor, Maine, for close to forty years. In 1958, he was a rabbinical student at Yeshiva University, and was engaged to be married. He had plans to enter the Armed Forces and join the Air Force. His father wouldn’t agree and unsure how to proceed, he turned to the Rebbe.

The Rebbe’s advice on that night was more far-reaching than he could have ever imagined at the time.

Excerpt from Living Torah Disc 174, Program 696.

    Think about it. For 28 years (1950-1978) 3 Times a week each 100’s of people went into Yechidus to The Rebbe. Generally Calculating = close to a million people went into yechidus to the Rebbe (7-800,000)
    Each had 2-3-5 min. But as they walked out they all had a story to tell.

    Just amazing thinking of this achievement. (Not looking as a
    Rebbe = getlichkiet, A Nosi. Etc. Just the fact of so many went to see the Rebbe. Each has a story to tell.
