The Note Buried With Hagon Rav Mordechai Eliyahu ZATZAL

After the petira of HaGaon HaRav Mordechai Eliyahu ZATZAL there were reports that the gadol hador was buried with a special document.

This week, a new sefer was released, ‘משנתו של הרבי מליובאוויטש’, authored by Rav Meir Elituv. The sefer provides an in-depth look at the years of the late rebbe ZATZAL, including the last ‘yechidus’ with Rav Eliyahu.

According to the Chabad Online report, Rav Elituv proves that behind the Gemaras, and Medrashim that were recited with utter perfection in the room, in actuality, what was taking place was a din torah addressing if arrival of the Geula can immediately be brought about without Klal Yisrael having to suffer.

The rebbe asked Rav Eliyahu to be the dayan in the case, permitting him to present over 40 proofs to back his position while Rav Mordechai, in his capacity as dayan, brought proofs to refute the rebbe’s position.

At the end of this final ‘yechidus’, the dayan told the rebbe that he rules in his favor and the Geula should be ordered “now – immediately”.

The book includes the hand-written p’sak din from Rav Mordechai Eliyahu, signed by 23 rabbonim, (in line with a בית דין בענייני נפשות), most well-known and respected dayanim.

In line with the p’sak of his talmidim, the rav was buried with this p’sak din in his hand.

  1. Hmm, does this story make sense? Do we allow people to be buried with stuff in their hands? We dont even allow pockets in the tachrichim! Furthermore, this “geula immediately” “psak” idea is certainly in line with Chabad, but not so much a sfardi thing. Weird story, Yeshivaworld.

  2. Elie Wiesel frequently mentions witnessing a din Torah in a concentration camp. A few rabbonim paskened that HKB”H had no right to do what He was doing to Klal Yisroel. This reminds me of that story.
    Apparently, HKB”H is not impressed with this type of din Torah….

  3. It’s a shame it obviously did not materialize being that it is already 18 years since the Rebbe’s death and Moshiach hasn’t come. Hopefully, we will all come to our senses and work towards Ahavas Chinum as well as letting Hashem decide who’s Mashiach is instead of deciding ourselves. History has proven that we’ve only lost out by doing so. 🙁

  4. There are plenty of chassidish stories of special people being buried with
    notes and yes hes referring to the Lubavitcher rebbe that lived in the later half of the 20th century

  5. In a din torah there are 2 sides. Who argued moshiach should not come, what were his arguments for that position?

    What am I not understanding here?
