i heard it too from the REbbe

i know first hand that the rebbe urged asking for mechillah from anyone who may have broken off a shidduch or even a potential shidduch that had not been finalized… in the spiriti of ahavas yisroel and maybe to help the many many unwed singles in our midst…let’s examine our hearts and see if there is someone we need to ask mechillah from…
simchas only

WOW!!!

BS”D great story and hope he marries off his daughter but excuse me for saying I am bothered by the suggestion for a name based on the persons own needs, rather than the thought of the convert

Perhaps someone can find a way to connect with David & come up with some suitable older man for his daughter. Who knows how far this story can go?

So every man should ask mechila? If he dident do anything wrong ? The rebbe said it to this person for his own reason. Dosent mean the rebbe wants every guy that broke off with a girl to ask mechila!

chabad only?

chabad only?

Are you looking for someone who is chabad or can it be an Israeli not chabad. His family is chasidish belz but he has such good midos.

Of course the Rebbe wants every person who broke off an engagement to ask mechila. Specially women who take things to heart

And self interested to ask for mechilah in that situation. But having had to ask for mechilah, it takes a lot of humility and it is harder than it seems.

she WAS hurt

she WAS hurt

‘He managed to once meet Avigail in person and asked her mechilah in person, in a very heart-felt manner. She of course granted it, but in between the lines, he could sense that she had been deeply hurt when he had dumped her.’
