The Rav's Stories: The Rimenover's Akeida

Thursday, 23 December, 2021 - 5:07 pm

B"H
 
Reb Mendele Rimenover lost twelve or thirteen children.
 
It came to the last child...
 
After mincha he sits down to lead seudas shlishis as if nothing is happening.
 
The rebbetzin came down and said, “If you want to accept yesurim be’ahava that’s fine, but to celebrate shalashuedis?”
 
“When Hashem commanded Avraham to shecht his son, if Avraham had argued Hashem would have given in. But imagine what attitude Klal Yisroel would have if we didn’t have the merit of the Akeida!”
 
The Rebbetzin acquiesced.
