I had the privilege of being a go-between between the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, or righteous memory, in New York and Rabbi Yekusiel Yehudah Halberstam, the Sanz-Klausenberg Rebbe, who lived in Israel.

One night, I got a call from the Lubavitcher Rebbe's secretariat. "Tell me," the aide on the phone said. "Who publishes the monthly magazine Sanz? Whether it is you or someone else, the Rebbe has an important request."

At that time, the Klausenberg community was going through a very distressing time. Our Rebbe was very ill, and everyone was with bated breath, at every moment waiting for any news regarding his situation.

Also at the time, the magazine Sanz ran several articles of harsh critique regarding a certain community issue.

The Rebbe's request was:

"The chassidic way is to give encouragement and bolster people's strength and morale. This is especially important at this time for the followers of the Klausenberg Rebbe, because their leader is not healthy. His disciples are broken and it does not befit the magazine to print such articles during this difficult time."
