story of Rabbi Amnon

see Igros kodesh from the Rebbe Vol 9 P 65, were the Rebbe questions this story if it is true, because according to Halacha it is forbidden to cause harm to oneself.

The best rebbe!

The best rebbe!

The only rebbe to make Melaveh Sundays!
The best 6th grade rebbe we could have had.
Still remember the apt on the corner of Kingston and Eastern Parkway.

And who can forget the “it’s 2:20, time for Mincha” at a cliffhanger in your daily stories!

We love you Sholom!

Wishing you an easy life and much nachas. Youre a good man and Hashem will reward you.

The story is written in the storeyteller – for one source, which is where Rabbi Perl told the story from.
Concerning the rebbes igros: perhaps u should look at it a little closer bc the rebbe doesn’t doubt “the story”. The rebbe merely doubts whether r amnon actually paskened something that would hurt himself. The story as a whole is true, and is the reason we have unisaneh tokef.

It's nice to hear your voice again

i am 35, and still remember rabbi perl’s stories from third grade in LA. i still remember the faithful mission and golem stories. when I read these stories in the original books which you probably got them from, does not do the story justice. the third grade version i heard from you were much better. your stories kept us interested and excited to learn. it’s nice to hear you voice again, it has not changed much. Hatzlacha Raba !!

is this story true?
Guest
is this story true?

as mentioned earlier The Rebbe in Igros Kodesh Vol 9 P 65, questions according to Halacha it is forbidden to cause harm to oneself.
if one is to tell this story, the correct way is to repeat it with the Rebbe’s Comments.
K’siva V’chasima Tova to all!

Right there with #3, “Melave Zuntig” and “Melave Muntig” were special along with a trip to Bushkill Falls (remember?) I never knew that R. Perl is from London. My kids still ask me about the picture with me wearing R. Perl’s special Tzivos Hashem officer’s cap.
