Amazing Tale of a Lubavitcher Stuck for Shabbos in Kiryas Yoel

A Lubavitcher chossid left late on Friday to join his family in the Catskills for Shabbos. Realizing that he won't make it due to an accident, he turned off the highway on Route 130 and drove to spend it in Kiryas Yoel. He was left astounded by the Satmar chossid who hosted him. Full Story

Along the same line. The Mashpia Harav Hachosid Reb Pinya Korf ZT”L, who was just Niftar, had his beard cut in Willaimsburg by some Satmerer fanatics, who objected to his coming to Williamsburg to teach Tanya. The interesting fact is that he was Niftar many years later on the same day his beard was cut many years earlier.

Wow

For purposes of accuracy:
His beard was cut on ט”ו סיון.

This story is also not fresh from this year, but really a beautiful story.
The story printed here is no less amazing and inspiring.

Wow … Powerful I have tears in my eyes …. What I found brilliant that this guy asks hashem for 15 years and never give up ….. And look with what good felling heshem arranged the forgiveness… If he would only find him and ask him forgiveness his subconscious would still feel bad…

This story is a very old story. But it’s always good for a reminder to think before you do or say something bad.

Many old timers might remember the ruckus in Williamsburg on Simchas Torah. From both sides of the hot-headed bachurim there were punches delivered on Rodney Street. Well, friends, alls well that ends well. Two folks I know, one who had been a Satmar hothead with quick fists and one who had been a Chabad bachur with equally strong fists were meshadech this past year – Satmar son and Chabad daughter married happily. What a simcha for Klal Yisroel…we might be gowing up as a nation.

correction?

Do not know what “ruckus” on simchas torah you are referring to? if you mean the “ruckus” at the TAHALUCHA of SHVEIE SHEL PESACH (1977), then it must be noted that lubavitch did NOT hit back as the REBBE was so proud of his chasidim and made mention of that fact the following day at the ACHARON SHEL PESACH farbrengen. a כוח”ט לשטו”מ בגו”ר to klal yisroel. MOSHIACH NOW!! a “kid” eye witness to the above sholom dovid geisinsky ps for thorough understanding of the diyuk haloshon “tovah u’msukah” see likutei sichos vol. 14 page 453, as the REBBE also… Read more »

This story is amazing! I am so impressed that a man should do tshuva so wholeheartedly, 15 years is a long time. When he did whatever it was, he was probably a teenager going through a teenage faze… He could have found excuses as to why he’s not so guilty… I am so impressed, & warmed takkeh that his tshuva was so sincere that the mechila happened in such a special way…where he was able to host & be kind to the person he hurt. On an aside if you ever have to get stuck somewhere & you’re around Satmar… Read more »
