Beit Midrash-Radoshitz-Receiving a Calling Print E-mail
Written by Machberes Avodas Hashem   

Yahrtzeit-RadoshitzThe 22nd of Adar is the Yahrtzeit of Rav Eliezer Dovid (ben Hillel) Finkler of Radoshitz (1927). He succeeded his father as Rebbe in 1901. Known as a tzadik and a baal mofes, he always spoke to his Chassidim in Lashon Hakodesh, and on Shabbos he would converse exclusively in that language. He was succeeded by his son Rav Chaim Asher as Rebbe and by his other son Yisrael Yosef as Rav of Radoshitz:


The Radishitzer told the following story: A friend of mine came to me for advice whether he should accept a certain call to be Rabbi. I asked him, “Have you solicited this call?” His reply was in the negative. “Then,” said I, “accept it, but always act in accordance with your conscience, and Heaven will guard you.”

“Let me narrate to you my own experiences. On my way home from visiting my Rabbi, a rich Chassid proposed that I become tutor to his children. ' This suggestion is from Heaven,' I said to myself, and accepted the offer. I made no request for payment, leaving it to the will of Heaven, and the Chassid sent sufficient money to my family. After two years, my services were no longer needed, and I settled in Radishitz. I studied constantly in the synagogue and became known as a 'Batlan.'

“Once a neighbor's child became seriously ill. The mother gave me some money to pray for her son's recovery. The boy regained his health, and other people came to me with their troubles. In this way I became a Rebbe. If it had not been the will of God that you should become a rabbi, the call would not have been extended to you.” (Lev Sameiach)
