Erev Rosh Hashanah marked the first yahrzeit of the Ungvar Rebbe, Rav Menashe Klein ZT”L.
A special Shabbos Hisachdus was held in the main beis medrash followed by the yahrzeit on Sunday, erev Rosh Hashanah. Chassidim were wondering how his son, the Rebbe Shlita, would be able to get to the ancient Beis Hakvaros in Tzfas and make it back to Yerushalayim in time for yomtov.
An idea was put forward and accepted, by which the rebbe would fly to Tzfas in a helicopter to be mispallel at the tziyun on the yahrzeit and get back to Yerushalayim in time to prepare for yomtov.
Chassidim report the rebbe was back and forth from the tziyun in Tzfas and back in the beis medrash in less than two hours.
