Are we really all ready? Are you giving all of your money to tzedaka before you won’t have a chance anymore? Are you going out of your way to be nicer to everyone? Just crying how it’s enough and we need Moshiach now doesn’t alone bring Geula. What has the rebbe been telling us for so many years? Let’s all take upon ourselves to do an extra good deed andTHAT will bring the ultimate geula!! A kosher un freilichen! And let’s bring moshiach now!(do u see the difference)

No words… except “Baruch Dayan Ha’Emes.” May Hashem comfort the Groner family, and Rabbi Yehudah Leib’s neshomo should have a tremendous Aliyah. And we need to bring Moshiach now.

The words “of the last generation” are in the wrong place. The Rebbe is our nossi and is also Leibel Groner a”h ‘s nossi. To say we are separate is to chas veshalom invalidate the Rebbe’s words that we are dor hashvii- the seventh generation.

Oh so sad
Please Hashem send us Moshiach NOW!!!!!!

Devastated
April 7, 2020 10:15 pm

Just want to share a personal anecdote:

Many years ago, when I was the shaliach in Perth, Australia, Leibel decided to visit Australia. There wss some discussion if Perth was worth putting on his itinerary, and I was told that it was simply not worth it for Leibel to use his valuable time yo visit such a small, isolated city.

2 days later, i received a call that Leibel had demanded that perth be placed on his itinerary because he “wanted to give chizuk to an isolated shaliach”.

April 7, 2020 10:21 pm

I’m literally crying. Never met him but have so much love for him. Always listened to his talks online and you could feel his vvaremkeit and bittul to the Rebbe. He was a window to the Rebbe after gimmel Tammuz for my generation. This loss feels so personal and communal at once.
Please take ya out of golus Aibishter. Now!

April 7, 2020 10:24 pm

There is nothing to say. He was the most gracious kindness man. He was our guide since Gimel Tamuz. The right hand to our Rebbe. He was truly the Rebbe’s General. This is the most devastating news. Moshiach must come now. Rebbe we need you more than ever before. Ad Mosai

April 7, 2020 11:19 pm

I remember Rabbi Groner -at a fabreingen occasion- describing the specialty of the Rebbe’s farbreingen on Erev Pesach , although according to the Shulchan Oruch, one has dedicate his time to the mitzva of Biur Chometz , never the less the Rebbe made a farbreingen signifying the importance of it!

April 8, 2020 12:00 am

Being constantly on call in the service of the Rebbe he always took the time to explain an answer he transmitted from the Rebbe with a gracious smile and varemkiet and through his demeanor you felt the the Rebbe’s bracha already having a positive effect. He spent his last years travelling the world to spread the Rebbe’s messagae with great mesiras nefesh. May his family and all chassidim find solace knowing that he is together with his Rebbe to whom he was a eved ne’eman. The Rebbe was there for every Jew and human being and will surely take care… Read more »

A father to all
April 8, 2020 1:07 am

Rabbi Groner was the first mazkir I spoke with when I came close to Chabad. He spoke to me with the love and patience of a father — irregardless of how busy he was faithfully assisting the Rebbe to carry the whole world. BDE.
The Rebbe said we are already into Chaim Nitzachim. So it can’t be these great and true Chassidishe are any place now other than a seat near the Rebbe at the Seudah Moshiach. The Rebbe said a long time ago the table has already been set and is waiting.

Levaya For Rabbi Groner on Erev Pesach
April 8, 2020 4:09 am

The levaya of Rabbi Yehuda Leib Groner, who served as the Rebbe’s secretary for over 40 years and was a prominent figure in Chabad-Lubavitch, will be taking place on Wednesday, Erev Pesach 5780. In an effort to save lives during the coronavirus pandemic, his family is asking that the public not be present when the precession passes Lubavitch World Headquarters at 770 Eastern Parkway, where Rabbi Groner spent days and even nights. Instead, the levaya will be driving around the Crown Heights neighborhood at 9:30 AM giving residents an opportunity to participate from their own properties and recite Tehillim. “The… Read more »

Without a doubt, a tremendous loss to the Crown Heights community. I only met him once on the day of my Chasana & he truly was an Amazing man!! Somebody said last night that the Rebbe is gathering his staff to fulfill his great goal- to bring Moshiach VERY SOON NO DOUBT!! In fact, the fact that we are losing so many giants indicates that we must strengthen our emunah even more.

April 8, 2020 1:01 pm

and just before pesach, Chag HaMatzos, he acted like matzhoh. was the most humble and ibergegebn chossid of the rebbe. He made sure to never sit while in the same room as the rebbe. Chassidim, we lost a gem.

His clarity and ability to give over chassidus was truly remarkable and made a major impression on us young bal teshuvahs in the 70″s , as we came from such diverse backgrounds , he was able to reach to our souls with true depth. His examples and stories especially being the secretary were so captivating as if we were there regardless of the era. During class he would always ask”do… Read more »
