From the Shah to the Rebbe: The Tale of an Artist
Jewish Press,Monday, January 26, 2015
...The Nourils decided to seek the Rebbe’s blessing. They contacted the Rebbe’s office in New York, and received a reply from the Rebbe that he should hear good news from them. Nothing less than a remarkable recovery followed. “The whole thing brought me close to spirituality,” Nouril said. Overwhelmed with gratitude, Nouril felt compelled to draw the Rebbe’s portrait. Something, though, held him back. “When I paint a person,” he explained, “I don’t just paint a resemblance. I try to capture the character. But how could I relate to the character of the Lubavitcher Rebbe if I was a totally secular person?”...

We're enabling people to practise the faith." As the Bard himself might have said, and so the Lord be thankit.

He’d also been shot through the back. The soldier who’d earlier put on teffilin with the squad lay dead beside him. “For many years,” Moshe shared, “I asked rabbi after rabbi for an answer to the cause of this terrible tragedy. But I never got an answer that satisfied. Not until I visited The Rebbe from Lubavitch.” His eyes penetrated mine as he said this, and I admit I got a chill in the warm Florida air...

Everyone has to ask themselves that question.”...
