every shliach–a mercedes!

Huh?
Guest
Huh?

So, is your lesson to take a chitas along, or to not drive 100 mph?

Chitas
Guest
Chitas

Chitas only?
and 100 miles per hour?

100mph or 100kmh?
Guest
100mph or 100kmh?

You survived was a nes.
The accident wad not, it was because going 100 is calling for it.
Moral of the story, dont fly drive.

Title and article doesn’t mach or at least I hope that was not his intention b/c as chassidim we know that we don’t give reasons why hashem makes not good things happen.

Having a good car probably also helped

A little clarity

Sometimes, the “message” is really just surface deep. In this case, the moral is simply “don’t drive 100mph!”

KILOMETERS PER HOUR
Guest
KILOMETERS PER HOUR

For those in the USA; 100 KILOMETERS per hour is not the same as 100 MILES per hour.

As stated clearly in the article 100 kilometers per hour is the same as 60 miles per hour which is about what the posted speed limit is on US highways.

Just learn from his valid point and ALWAYS KEEP A CHITAS IN THE CAR.

to all above!!!

It says 100 km not 100mph just pointing out moral of the story take a chitas along, say tefillas haderech, wear a seatbelt, drive safe!!!

speeding

to all of you who responded about the speeding, he is only going 100 KM per hour not miles, in miles it would be about 65

read again, he was going approx 60 miles. It was 100 KM. Miles and kilometers are different! Taking the time after this trauma to share lessons with others is an act of Ahavas Yisroel. Pirsumei Nissim is a Mitzva! Thanks to the Shliach and Hatzlocha Raba

I never write comments. However, the lack of respect shown for someone who is mefrsem a nes and just went through such a traumatic experience, compels me to comment. The shliach write he was driving “100 km per hour (approx. 60 miles per hour)”, yet people don’t bother to read that it was 60 mph and instead criticize a good deed by reading and writing 100 mph. It is time we think before we write and we respect people for doing good things.

BH you are ok
Guest
BH you are ok

to # 1, I’m assuming you were being sarcastic! If you read the article, he says he was a passenger in the car and not the driver, so it most likely was not his car! Also, to all those commenting on the speeding factor- we don’t know what the speed limit was on that road- maybe driving 60 mph was fine. It’s Elul, let’s not jump to conclusions and instead say BH this person is ok!

scary

bh you and driver are okay!!! a wonderful miracle

The article said 100 MPH, which is when the first comments were posted, and it was then edited to 100 KM PER HOUR.

To 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 … you don’t like people jumping to conclusions and criticizing, but that’s EXACTLY what you all just did, assuming that the commenters did not read and not that the article had been written one way and then edited.

note the date

Interesting to note that today 13 Elul is the yahrzeit of HoRav Hakodosh Reb Yakov Yisroel of Cherkassy who was the son-in-law of the Mitteler Rebbe.
Regarding Shemira in a car the Rebbe instructs to have a Chitas AND a Tzedoko pushka, and to publicise it.

Instead of criticizing others you should be “dan l’kaf zchus” and be positive. A few readers made a small mistake (not noticing that the speed of 100 was in kilometers per hour not MPH). A gentle correction is all that they need. Instead you feel “compelled” to get out the key board and shoot off a comment to put them in their place. No need to use a chain saw when a scalpel is all that is needed. More can be accopmplished with honey than vinegar.

In the FSU most Shluchim do not drive themselves, instead they have drivers (in the US they’re called chauffeurs). Chances are the car did belong to the shliach, andthe driver was his employee. That’s how it usually is there.

Haha

It’s so funny how all the comments got way off topic, and instead of commenting on the article the comments are on the comments.
It always ends up that way.

B”H the Shliach and driver are okay. A Ness.

Perhaps Hashem is sending you a message to do teshuva

Thank you for publicising this nes! I hope people take an example from you and start to publicise miracles more, cos they’re happening all the time!! It’s amazing that it’s the same day as the yahrtzeit of the Mittler Rebbe’s son–n-law! I’m sure in his zechus and in the zechus of the amazing work you do, you were saved from harm! KVT

Dear Rabbi Axelrod, It seems to me that there is a divine power in the SURNAME you carry, considering that you and the driver each came through whole, (not broken), despite the condition of the car and the extreme circumstances you describe. May we all learn our Rebbe’s teaching to be careful what pet names we call our children … choosing only empowering names that resonate wholeness and truth, holiness and shalom, strength and endurance, patience and bitochon, ETC. and ETC.
