CHASSIDISHE STORY ON THE PARSHA
למען תלמוד ליראה את ה’ אלוקיך כל הימים (ראה יד:כג)So that you will learn to fear Hashem, your G-d, all your days.
HaChassid Reb Avraham Mendolowitz a’’h related a story.
His sister, who lived in Tiberias and had a four-year-old son, suddenly stopped talking, and he couldn’t sleep at night. She asked her husband to take their son to Tel Aviv to Maran Rebbe Aharon of Belz zt’’l. Maran asked her husband, “Do Arab women hang out near your home?” He replied that yes. Maran exclaimed, “Arabic eyes! Arabic eyes!”
Maran then took the boy, placed him between his holy feet, and tapped him on his forehead. Maran asked the boy, “What’s with you?” The boy answered, “I’m scared.”
Maran told him, “You’re not allowed to be afraid of anyone, only to fear Hashem alone!”
Maran Rebbe Aharon advised the father to check the mezuzahs from their home. The boy returned home with his father and slept well that night. The father checked the mezuzahs, and a few of them were damaged.
