A story of the Rebbe # 11 - Before His Very Eyes Print Email

At one point during the first Yud Tes Kislev farbrengen of the Rebbe's nesius, the Rebbe turned to the late Rabbi Shmuel Zalmanov, a'h, and told him that the Ten Niggunim of the Alter Rebbe would be sung.

Afterwards, the Rebbe remarked: It is written, "When a person quotes something he has heard it is as if he can see the person who said what he has heard standing in front of him, etc. The Tzemach Tzedek once said that this specifically refers to divrei Torah. However, in the case of a niggun, it is not only -as if- [he sees the person], but this is actually meant in the literal sense. Therefore, when the niggun of the Alter Rebbe was sung in the presence of the Tzemach Tzedek, everyone could see the Alter Rebbe'standing right there.?

As the Rebbe'spoke, he suddenly grew very pale, and his hand, which was resting on the table, began to tremble very vigorously.
