‘If You Can Get Them All Into One Room…’

Reb Eliyahu Kitov, an activist and author, had a brilliant idea: he would gather all leading rabbonim in one room to find solutions for Klal Yisroel’s issues. The Rebbe agreed that this would bring the solution, but for a different reason.

Reb Avraham Eliyahu Mokotovsky, better known as Reb Eliyahu Kitov, was an educator, community activist and a prolific author.

In exchanges of letters, yechidusen and by participating in farbrengens, Reb Eliyohu merited a special relationship with the Rebbe, in which he received much encouragement for his activities.

Reb Tuvia Bloi relates what he heard from Reb Eliyahu:

Once, in a 5713 yechidus, he told the Rebbe that being that am Yisroel is suffering from so many tzoros, and with all the challenges we are facing, it would be worthwhile for all the Gedolei Yisroel to meet in one room, to discuss solutions. Amongst the suggested participants, Reb Eliyohu mentioned the Lubavitcher Rebbe, the Satmarer Rebbe, the Gerrer Rebbe, the Chazon Ish, the Lakewood Rosh Yeshiva and the Brisker Rov.

The Rebbe smiled and said that indeed this initiative would solve all the problems. “Because if you get all these Rabbonim in one room, Moshiach will come, and all the difficulties will be resolved!”
