Oy, RBS”O, help your orphaned children with this tremendous loss Klal Yisroel suffered today! How will we persevere in this time of crisis and sorrow? Who will stand by us and show us the way during these unstable times? We have lost so much and have so little!!
Please continue watching and protecting your brokenhearted nation. Please protect our remaining Gedolim who are in dire need today of your heavenly mercy! Please lift us up and bring Moshiach Bmihera Byomeinu.
The loss of a tzaddik def. affects us. But there was no “standing by and showing the way” coming from him for a while.
His very presence was a light upon Klal Yisroel.
This is truly a catastrophic loss for World Jewry. We need to do Mitzvos and build up on zechusim to makeup for this tragic loss.
After a talmid tears kriah when his rebbe is niftar, must he sit shiva?
This devastating and irreplacable loss for the klal is very keenly felt by everyone.
The New York Times ran a story today on the Rebbe’s petira.
(Interestingly, the Times also ran a story when the Chofetz Chaim was niftar.)
