A few days ago, Rebbetzin Fruma Schapiro, a granddaughter of the Niftar went to visit him in Hospital.
Rabbi Mendel Feldman was lying on his hospital bed and Rebbetzin Schapiro decided to read some Likkutei Dibburim to him from the Frierdiker Rebbe.
Rebbetzin Schapiro opened the Likkutei Dibburim randomly to a page in the middle and started reading it to him.
The Likkutei Dibburim on that page was talking about how when the Neshoma leaves the world it goes to the Mechitzah of the Rebbe it was connected to in this world, and the Rebbe is waiting for him there… this was very relevant to Rabbi Mendel Feldman as he was Mekushar blev Vnefesh to the Frierdike Rebbe and then afterwards the Rebbe…
Rabbi Mendel Feldman passed away at 12:17am on Shabbos morning in the Hospital, so many members of his family didn’t find out about his passing until many hours later.
At 1:30am his grandson Rabbi Sholom Feldman, who hadn’t heard yet that his Zayde had passed away, woke up in his home from a clear dream.
In the dream he was walking with his grandfather, who was very happy.
They came to a place with a bright light, but Zayde said, “This is not it.” So they continued to a place which had a much brighter light, making the previous place seem dark in comparison, and Zayde still said,”This is not it.” This happened a number of times with more purer and brighter white lights, until they came to a place with the purest and brightest white light. At this point Zayde said, “This is it.” He said goodbye to Sholom and the other family members who appeared in the dream, to join the holy Tzaddikim in that purest of places.
Sholom woke up knowing that Zayde had passed away and had gone to the holiest place, but this was only confirmed to him many hours later when he came to Shul and was told the news.
Rabbi Schapiro quoted these two stories to say that Rabbi Mendel Feldman’s Neshomah is definitely in a very exalted place at the moment and we ask him to be a Meilitz Yosher for all of Klal Yisroel.
