Today is marked by many as International Lefthanders Day. In connection with this, we bring you a fascinating story of the Rebbe related to being left handed.
Rabbi Yisroel Shusterman is left handed. Since mitzvos are usually to be done with the right hand, as a young man, he asked the Rebbe for direction in this matter and about the ramifications of being a lefty.
At the time, the Rebbe sent him to the local Rabbinic authority and Rabbi Shusterman all but forgot about the story.
Imagine his surprise when the Rebbe made reference to this so many years later. In connection with the international left handers day.
