Be kind with true people and causes!
This blog is to bring comfort for Leiby’s soul and family. We all need to be more like Dovid Hamelech/King David who would look out for everyone and take care of them…Today The 3rd of Cheshvan is the yahrzeit—the day of passing and ascent into heaven—of Rebbe Yisrael of Ruzhin (d. 5611 ), the great-grandson of the Magid of Mezritch (a descendant of Dovid Hamelech). Rebbe Yisrael is commonly known as the Holy Rizhiner. Of all the pious leaders of his generation, it is known that he is the only one about whom the Alter Rebbe said that he is worthy of becoming the Mashiach.
Story and Commentary
The Rizhiner once recounted:
When I was a young child, 4 years old, my holy father Rabbi Shalom of Prabitch took me on a walk through the fields and there we saw the sun setting, a beautiful and grand sight.
Watching the sunset, it seemed to me as a young boy that the place on the horizon where the sun was setting was the end of the sky. I told my father, “Look Abba, you can see where the sky ends.” My father answered, “Know my child that beyond the sky that you can see there is another sky, and beyond that another sky, and there are skies without number one after another beyond that.”
“When my father spoke those words,” the Rizhiner said, “My stomach began to churn. And the churning continues to this day, whenever I think of these words that my father told me then.”
