In A Different Way Written In Honor Of The Alter Rebbe In A Different Way
Written In Honor Of
The Alter Rebbe

When the Alter Rebbe was released from prison, many celebrated at the release from his confinement. One such person, upon seeing the Alter Rebbe, approached and asked him, “Dear Rebbe, how does it feel to be out of your prison and your confinement?” The Alter Rebbe looked at the man and said, “My Prison and my confinement? what prison and confinement?” Puzzled by the Alter Rebbe’s response, the man stated, “but you were in a prison far away.” The Alter Rebbe looked deeply into the man eyes and said, “When one’s Soul is truly close to G-d, anyplace one is confined, no matter how small or seemingly bleak the space, that place is just a different abode for that Soul to speak with G-d, Whose boundaries are always far beyond any bars or walls that surround It. Dear friend, I was never trapped in a prison. I was just in place where I communicated with the Infinite in a different way.”
