My Grandfather’s Incredible Dream of the Rebbe

Rabbi Shimmy Weinbaum shares an astonishing story of a dream his grandfather had after helping him on his second-ever project for Tzivos Hashem, and explains why he is telling the story now.

By Rabbi Shimmy Weinbaum  Director of Chayolei Tzivos Hashem

Please allow me to share a very special story with you.

The 2nd project I worked on in Tzivos Hashem was a booklet called ‘The Power of Children’.

It was a compilation based on the sichos the Rebbe spoke before and after the Yom Kippur war regarding the power of children.

My Zayda Mr. Rader wrote the introduction. The night he was finished he had a dream. In his dream, he was in yechidus with the Rebbe. He handed the newly finished booklet to the Rebbe and said: “My grandchild Shmaryohu made this.”

In his dream, the Rebbe looked at the booklet and told him that it was missing the word עז. “Tell him to print 30,000 copies,” the Rebbe then told him, in his dream.

The next day my Zayda asked me what does it say on the cover. I said מפי עוללים ויונקים. Indeed it was missing the word עז!

Of course, we changed the cover to say מפי עוללים ויונקים יסדת עוז.

But I am embarrassed to say I never printed 30,000 copies…

With the war going on now. I am on a mission to do what the Rebbe asked me to do 24 years ago.

On Monday we are going to print.

The project is going to cost $20,000.

If you can help. By giving any amount towards this project or helping me distribute the booklets I would be very grateful.
