A group of Chabad bochurim went on a snow trip this past week and found themselves facing dangerous road conditions on the way back while driving through Pennsylvania.
“Our car started to slide and we didn’t know what to do,” one of them told COLlive.com.
They decided that their safest option is to stop on the side of the road but didn’t have any idea what to do following that.
Coming to their rescue was a young man named Zack, a resident of Vermont who was familiar with the area.
He directed them on how to proceed and led them to another road with better conditions.
Reaching a safer road, they thanked him and casually asked if he was Jewish. Hearing that he was, they offered him to put on Tefillin.
Zack agreed, noting that he became Bar Mitzvah at the Kotel in Jerusalem and hasn’t put on Tefillin since.
The bochurim helped him with reciting Shema and danced together, excited to repay their helper with a spiritual favor.
