A group of bochurim on their way back from learning with college students miraculously walked out of a fatal multi-vehicle crash with just scratches. They credited their teaching Torah for the miracle.
The miracle occurred on Tuesday evening, when a group of bochurim from the Chabad yeshiva in Migdal Haemek went to learn in chavrusa with college students at the Technion in Haifa and at Karmiel College. The chavrusa program was part of the wider ‘Batei Medrash’ of Chabad on Campus in Eretz Yisroel, which pairs u yeshiva bochurim with students for authentic Torah study.
On the way back to yeshiva, on Road 77 near the Yishai interchange, the bochurim were involved in a serious accident with two other vehicles and a truck. The accident left two residents of a nearby Arab village dead and a number of others were wounded. Miraculously, the bochurim walked out with only scratches.
MDA paramedic Baruch Avitan said: “When we arrived at the scene, the sight was difficult. We saw a truck in the left lane of the road and under the front part there was a crushed private vehicle with three passengers trapped. We saw 2 more vehicles damaged in the accident.”
The bochurim say that what protected them was the merit of their studying Torah just before the accident.
In an emotional post on social media, Rabbi Moshe Shilat, director of Chabad on Campus in Eretz Yisroel, thank Hashem for the big miracle. “Learning Torah protects and saves!” he wrote. “May we continue to share only good news.”
