A story of the Rebbe # 19 - "I Will Mention it at the Gravesite" Print Email

During Tishrei 5734/1973, a visitor to Crown Heights suddenly received an urgent telephone call from his home. His father had suffered a severe heart attack and was in critical condition. The distraught visitor immediately sent a note to the Rebbe describing the situation. A short time later, he received the reply: "I will mention it at the gravesite, and there will be good news."

Knowing that the Rebbe would only be going to the Ohel, the resting-place of his father-in-law, the Rebbe Rayatz, in another few days, the worried visitor sent in another urgent note. He felt that as the situation was critical, he could not wait those few days until his father??'s name could be mentioned at the gravesite.

A few minutes later, the following reply was received:
"Since then, [the father] has already been mentioned several times at the gravesite. But if [the writer of the note] wants, he can go to the gravesite himself, and there should be good news."
