    He came to our home too in Montreal and blessed our entire family, and amazingly the brochos which he emitted to each child almost always fitted with the needs of that indivdual person whom he then bentched,while holding the special coin of bracha in their hands.May he a mailitz yoisher in shamayim and help bring Moshiach now.

    The Rebbe gave him the Koach...

    It’s true. He used to eat by us, in CH, during Tishrei, and his brochos (with the Rebbe’s kochos) came true.
