So you are taking a trip to the Ohel? Can I go to New York with you and visit the Ohel?


Wonderful story about the professor and the cab driver. I knew it would end that way.

I know a similar story except it's not about the ohel. It's about when the Rebbe was alive. But because of that story, I knew how this one would turn out. Reply
