Beit Midrash-Rabbi Mordechai Lecovitz-Story Print
Written by Machberes Avodas Hashem   

Yahrtzeit-Story-LecovitzerThe 28th of Adar is the Yahrtzeit of Rav Mordechai Kastelanitz of Lecovitz, the father of the Slonim Chassidic dynasty: Rabbi Mordechai divorced his wife. His enemies, who had vainly hunted for excuses to defame him, believed that the woman would not hesitate to inform them of any of her former husband's misdeeds.


Her reply, however, greatly surprised them. “I have nothing to declare regarding him,” she said, “except to say that if he is not great enough to be the Messiah, no one in this generation is.” (Ohr Yesharim, page 4)
