|A story of the Rebbe #87 - The Missing Matza|
The late Zelig Slonim once related,
"Every year, I would travel to the Rebbe during the month of Adar, and the Rebbe would always give me three matzos to take back to Israel for three leading Rabbis in Jerusalem. Each Rabbi always received one matza. Among them was the late Rabbi Aryeh Levin. Rabbi Aryeh, who devoted his life to strengthening the faith of many Jews, even during their most difficult moments, derived much encouragement and spiritual inspiration from the matzos that he received from the Rebbe.
"In 5629/1969, I was very surprised when I left yechidus to find that the Rebbe had only given me two matzos, which were for the other two Rabbis. When I mentioned to the Rebbe that he had not given me a matza for Rabbi Aryeh, the Rebbe did not respond."
"Several days later, on 9th Nissan, Rabbi Aryeh Levin passed away."
