BEFORE THE CRASH: HaRav Nebenzahl: “Persians Want To Kill A Jew & Their Leader Is Killed Instead”

This past Motzei Shabbos, at the end of the weekly shiur he delivers at his home to a small group of talmidim, HaGaon HaRav Avigdor Nebenzahl was asked by one of his talmidim to daven for the Iranian Jew Arvin Netanel Ghahremani, who was sentenced to execution, r’l.

HaRav Nebenzahl responded: “This isn’t the first time that the Persians want to hang a Jew and in the end, their leader is hanged himself.” He added: “B’ezras Hashem, it will be okay.”

The next day, the helicopter carrying Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian and six other senior officials crashed, killing everyone aboard.

B’Chadrei Chareidim reported that HARav Yehoshua Katz, the Rav of Maale Adumim, who was present at the shiur, confirmed the story, adding that when HaRav Nebenzahl heard about the crash, he smiled and said that everything “turned about” [הכל התהפך].

The public is requested to continue davening for a yeshuah for Arvin Netanel ben Sonia Tziyona.

  1. Clearly this anniversary on י”ב אייר incidentally same day of week as שושן פורים ויום-העצמאות is a day of perpetual rejoicing, & all laws of mourning are suspended as they are on יום-העצמאות

  2. שושן פורים I understand, but who exactly holds that the laws of mourning are suspended on יום העצמאות.
    אין זה אלא דעת יחידים על פי רוב אין מורין כן.
