It’s a cute story and he probably quips that he was the “token non-Lubavitcher” as a joke, because in the Cheder’s early years, half the talmidim were non Lubavitch, so I’m sure his Rebbi granted him that role randomly, as I’m sure he had other non Chabad classmates…. Not to mention, to do that is insensitive and I’m sure a Rebbi wouldn’t assign a role based on being Lubavitch or not. It must have been coincidental.

Bravo

Our children attend the same Manhattan yeshiva and are good friends. Rabbi S once told us that in Cheder Chabad Chicago – in the Yud Tes Kislev play, as the token non-Lubavitcher – he was giving the role of the Alter Rebbe’s Jailer! Wonderful family, lots of nachas. A Shluchah

kiddush Hashem!
