Rebbe of Viznitz [B.B., Reb Yisroel] wept at the end of a Shalosh-Seudos at the Great Beit Midrash in Bnei Brak for the terrible disaster in Meron.
From: ‘Bechadrei-Chareidim’ higight of his speech:
“It is very difficult to speak now that his dead is laid before one (per concept of Meitho mutol lefonov) …, the ‘Ahavath Yisroel’ [reb Yisroel of Viznitz 5620-5696] the holy grandfather said to the holy grandfather the ‘Imrei Chaim’, R. Shimon [bar Yochai] is the heart of the Yiden, the holy Sforim are written about R. Shimon, it is a terrible tragedy, it is impossible to understand.”
“One thing is clear, everyone understands, that everyone must do a ‘Cheshbon haNefesh’ for themselves, all families walk around with terrible trauma, in the ‘HEART’ of Klal Yisroel such a thing happened,
“לֵ֣ב טָ֭הוֹר בְּרָא־לִ֣י אֱלֹקים וְר֥וּחַ נָ֝כ֗וֹן חַדֵּ֥שׁ בְּקִרְבִּֽי׃
Fashion a pure HEART for me, O G-d; create in me a steadfast spirit.
אַל־תַּשְׁלִיכֵ֥נִי מִלְּפָנֶ֑יךָ וְר֥וּחַ קָ֝דְשְׁךָ֗ אַל־תִּקַּ֥ח מִמֶּֽנִּי׃ Do not cast me out of Your presence, or take Your holy spirit away from me.
” (Tehillim 51),
It was the eve of Yom Kippur 5707 in Grosswardein. G-d Almighty, you will forgive us for everything, and we will forgive you for everything, may we have a good year, here the Rebbe began to cry.
“What can we say to Gd, what is said and what will we say, I must be strengthened, the ways of Gd are clearly hidden, important and Gd-fearing Yiden rejoiced and celebrated in Meron, yesterday in a halakhic lesson on the blessing of retribution, it was also talked about ‘four who should give thanks’. The ‘Ahavath Yisroel’ says [on the Posuk] ‘The wise man will take note of these things; he will consider the steadfast love of the LORD.’ [Tehillim 107]. You have to be smart to ‘keep’ them. Who can live with the wisdom of reverence. The Torah shows us the way, and we will look at the grace of Gd, we have difficult and heavy trials, we are in the hand of Gd. ”
The people returned broken and shattered after the war [WW2], with a heavy load (on the heart), began to Daven every vow, the holy grandfather said. Gentlemen, let us make an agreement with Gd, you will forgive us for everything, and we will forgive you for everything, that we will have a good year..
here the Rebbe began to cry.
Hearing in his audio, he added an interpretation “VeYishmor”, on the meaning of Conserve…
