    This really sounds very contrived. The last part of it does not sound like our Rebbe at all.

    This cant be true!!

    A: A child of Holocaust survivors would have been at least 20-30 years old when the Rebbe started to give out dollars the Rebbe only started to give out dollars about 1985

    B: the Rebbe never said no to anybody as can be seen in this video

    to think that a story like this is true is an insult to the our Rebbe, a man who never put conditions on anything, all that the Rebbe ever asked was for us to do more

    The man may have had a Bris Milah. In the above story the boy admitted to not having a Bris. For you to say how the Rebbe would react in such a situation would mean that you yourself could be a Rebbe and since your not, you do not know for sure.

    why do ppl dig so deeply into everything searching for ways to disbelieve?? k- maybe details get a little distorted over time but the main part is there and powerful.

    Since telling it over, I heard some other people have heard of this story too, so perhaps it’s true after all.
    However, I don’t know for sure that this story is true but it’s message, for me, holds true.
    Perhaps ‘Alex’ was a little older perhaps not.
    I wrote it as I heard it.
    I hope you are inspired by the story as I was when I heard it.

    With much respect but this story was printed in the Kfar-Chabad this past summer 13 Tamuz issue #1426 pg 24-25.

    perhaps,,,,,,,

    perhaps,,,,,,,

    knowing and understanding the Rebbe (as much as we can) the Rebbe would never tell anyone “i wont give you a dollar……” the Rebbe is not that type to turn anyone away…. Im sorry I cant believe this story,,, if you ask my in my humble opinion,,, the Rebbe would of gave the dollar and ask “alex” to give it to charity after his bris….. chag sameach

    The message being that years could have gone by, yet the Rebbe fulfilled what he promised as soon as the individual did what they were supposed to do…I other words, that the Rebbe keeps his word to the T. Have more faith…

    Instead of all the back and forth surmising what not ask Rabbi Groner if the story is true

    i heard this story from a very realliable source and the gist of it is basically the same but the details are verry off. (‘I won’t give you a dollar now, however I will give you a dollar when you get a Bris Milah…'”- that isnt true. the Rebbe told him, that WHEN he gets a bris he WILL get a dollar)
