CHASSIDISHE STORY ON THE PARSHA
ואכלת ושבעת וברכת…(עקב ח:י)You will eat, and you will be satisfied.
The Rebbe Reb Boruch of Medzhybizh zt’’l once visited the city of Kshaniv. He asked his host to prepare a lavish meal worthy of a king. His host explained that today was a fast day in Kshaniv since it didn’t rain for a while. Why would the Rebbe disturb our fast day?
“You don’t understand,” explained the Rebbe. “Your act of fasting signifies that you can manage without food and drink. Therefore, I asked you to prepare a seudah to show Hashem that you can’t live without food and drink!”
