Blessing the Gathered

Whenever Reb Aharon travelled, word would get out in the cities through which his train would pass. Men, women and children would flock to the train station to get a glimpse of the holy Tzadik.

The Rebbe would bless all those gathered by lifting his hands and praying for them. To many, it recalled the words in the Torah describing Aharon the Kohen: “And Aharon lifted his hands to the nation and he blessed them.”
