|A story of the Rebbe #110 - To Increase Life|
The late Rabbi Shneur Zalman Garelik of Kfar Chabad first visited the Rebbe at the beginning of 5721/1960. During his yechidus, he asked the Rebbe if he could give over the running of a gemach that he owned to other people because it took up a lot of his time and he found it very difficult to run, being elderly and weak.
The Rebbe replied that it did not take up his time and that, if anything, it increased his time. Rabbi Garelik, who was then aged 80, went on to live another fifteen years, passing away at the age of 96.
