The Vilna Gaon put us in cherem. If only he would have known that his great-grandchild will have a seder at the cheremed chassidim.

He didn’t want to join the cherem. They only made the malshinus on the Alter Rebbe after the Gra passed away. He prob would of stopped them. He knew who the Alter Rebbe was.

I know it’s all nice and good that the “vilna gaon”s einekul cane to chabads seder, but i think that the more important details about this story is that these two bochurim could have been in their homes, but instead they went to Africa and not a vacation place but rather a not so friendly place to do the rebbe’s shlichus. the same applies to all other bochurim and they really deserve a round of applause.

Shkoyach!!!
