By the grace of G-d

Shalom uBrocha!

It's writen about the Rebbe King Moshiach:
1. And a shoot shall spring forth from the stem of Jesse, and a twig shall sprout from his roots.
And a shoot shall spring forth from the stem of Jesse And if you say, ‘Here are consolations for Hezekiah and his people, that they shall not fall into his hands. Now what will be with the exile that was exiled to Halah and Habor, is their hope lost?’ It is not lost! Eventually, the King Messiah shall come and redeem them.
a shoot [This is symbolic of] the royal scepter.
and a twig an expression of a sapling.
and a twig shall sprout from its roots and the entire section, and at the end (v. 11), "And it shall come to pass, that on that day, the Lord shall apply His hand again…[from Assyria]… Hence, [it is obvious] that this prophecy was said to console those exiled to Assyria.
2. And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, a spirit of wisdom and understanding, a spirit of counsel and heroism, a spirit of knowledge and fear of the Lord.
3. And he shall be animated by the fear of the Lord, and neither with the sight of his eyes shall he judge, nor with the hearing of his ears shall he chastise.
And he shall be animated by the fear of the Lord He shall be filled with the fear of the Lord. [ed enos mera il luy in O.F., and He shall be enlivened.]
and neither with the sight of his eyes shall he judge For, with the wisdom of the Holy One, blessed be He, which is within him, will he know and understand who is innocent and who is guilty.

Yeshayahu - Isaiah 11

The story bellow clearly shows this manifest:

By M. Melamed

It was late at night and on Binyamin Boulevard in Netanya, the lights went out one by one. The street emptied out and the nighttime silence descended on the entire area. One house still had the lights on. It was the house of Rabbi Moshe Antizadeh, the rav of the Iranian shul. R’ Moshe was sitting and learning in his living room.

The Iranian community in Netanya had gotten used to the fact that their rabbi wasn’t an ordinary rabbi but also a Chabad Chassid. When they had any sort of trouble they knew they could ask him to help them write to the Rebbe through the Igros Kodesh. The miracle stories that resulted were the talk of the town.

So it didn’t surprise R’ Moshe when somebody knocked at his door at that late hour. He opened the door to see a woman who looked obviously in distress. He invited her in and asked how he could be of assistance.

The woman broke down as she said she had heard that you can write to the Rebbe…


After she calmed down, she began to relate her tragic story. “I am married for nearly ten years and I still don’t have any children. I’ve undergone medical treatment and three months ago I was told that I’m finally pregnant. I was thrilled of course, but my joy was short-lived.

“A few weeks ago I wasn’t feeling well and after a series of tests, the doctors said there’s a malignant growth in my uterus and I must have it removed. Since they can’t treat the growth while the fetus is in the uterus, they told me I have to abort within a week so they can start treatment as soon as possible.

“I’ve gone to the top doctors in the country and they all say I must abort, and every additional day endangers my life and increases the chance that the usual protocol won’t work to stop the malignancy from spreading. They say that will give them no choice but to remove my uterus.

“I’ve seen a number of rabbonim and after telling them what the doctors say, the rabbonim say I can do the abortion because, “ha’ba l’horgecha, hashkeim l’horgo” (if someone comes to kill you, rise up and kill him [first]).

“I’ve come to you in order to write a letter to the Rebbe for a bracha that the abortion go okay, without complications, and that the treatment that I’ll start right after that be successful. They should be able to get rid of the growth without having to remove my uterus, so I’ll still have a chance of having children.”


R’ Moshe listened to the woman’s tragic story and said, “You’ve come to ask the Rebbe about a matter that concerns life and death. This is extremely serious and when you write to the Rebbe, you must tell him all the details and agree to follow whatever the Rebbe says.”

The woman nodded her agreement, took a pen and began to write her letter. R’ Moshe sat nearby and said Tehillim, praying that the woman would get a bracha for a refuah sheleima.

When she finished writing, she put the letter into a volume of Igros Kodesh and after she accepted the Rebbe’s Malchus by saying Yechi, R’ Moshe began to read the Rebbe’s letter.

When the woman heard the opening words of the Rebbe’s answer, she nearly fainted. The Rebbe explained at length the great prohibition in aborting a baby. He went on to explain how it is out of the question negated from any standpoint, both physically and spiritually. At the end of the letter, the Rebbe wished success in all matters.

“The Rebbe is telling you explicitly that you may not have the abortion done,” said R’ Moshe.

The woman looked at him in shock, not believing that a sane person could confidently tell her to oppose all the biggest doctors.

“Are you serious?” she asked skeptically. “Am I really supposed to ignore the warnings of all the doctors? It’s my life we’re talking about!”

Mrs. Antizadeh was present and her heart went out to the woman. She asked her husband to read the Rebbe’s answer again. Perhaps this woman’s situation was different. R’ Moshe took another look but the Rebbe’s answer was quite clear: no abortion!

He looked up from the letter and softly said to the woman, “I absolutely understand your feelings. It’s very hard to accept the Rebbe’s answer when all the doctors say the opposite. But thanks to my experience in similar situations, I can tell you: When the Rebbe says to do something or not to do something when it entails danger to life, listening to the Rebbe brings bracha and success, and not listening can entail real danger. I’m telling you – if you want to do the best thing for yourself and your baby, don’t do the abortion.

“I am absolutely confident that if this is what the Rebbe says, he also takes full responsibility for your wellbeing. The only thing that remains to do is to pick up the phone and tell the doctors that you will not be doing the abortion. Believe in the Rebbe’s words and you will see miracles take place.”

The woman left the rav’s house, her mind in a turmoil. In her ears rang the doctors’ warnings; that if she didn’t do the abortion now, they would have to remove her uterus in order to prevent the growth from spreading. On the other hand, there was the Rebbe’s clear answer. The Rebbe’s blessing for success at the end of the letter gave her some hope that perhaps she would give birth to the child she had waited for these ten years.


The next day was Friday and on his way to shul, R’ Moshe saw the woman and her husband standing near the door, waiting for him. Before he had a chance to greet them, the husband exclaimed, “How can you take this upon yourself? You are taking advantage of a woman who is already on the brink of collapse. Do you want to leave me a widower?”

R’ Moshe stayed calm under attack and waited for the husband to calm down. Then he repeated what he had said the night before. “The Rebbe’s answers in the Igros Kodesh are not a game. People in worse situations were saved by listening to the Rebbe, and so you would be best off strengthening your bitachon in the Rebbe’s words. If you listen to the Rebbe, you’re assured of success.”

The husband didn’t look as angry but he still remained adamant about not listening to an answer that opposed all the doctors and rabbonim. For the next 24 hours he thought about what R’ Moshe had said. The strength and emuna had reached deep into his heart and on motzoei Shabbos he and his wife went to the rav’s house. They wanted to write to the Rebbe, asking him to consider the sensitive and dangerous situation and to perhaps permit the abortion.

The husband wrote the letter and put it in a volume of Igros Kodesh. The Rebbe’s answer was that if they still had doubts, they should consult with another top doctor.

The couple agreed to do this and to listen to what the doctor would tell them to do. R’ Moshe referred them to a world-renowned doctor who works at Hadassa Hospital in Yerushalayim. This doctor is a relative of a Lubavitcher in Netanya, and he had heard many stories about the answers from the Rebbe through the Igros Kodesh. He had seen quite a few brachos fulfilled and he agreed to examine the woman.

The examination on Sunday showed that the growth wasn’t as big as it seemed in earlier exams. This doctor was also of the opinion that an abortion had to be done, but unlike the other doctors, he said it didn’t have to be done so fast. He recommended waiting another week. Before they left his office, he encouraged them to have faith in the fulfillment of the Rebbe’s brachos.


After a nerve-wracking week, in the course of which the couple did their best to strengthen their belief in the Rebbe’s words, they went back to the doctor’s office in Yerushalayim. She was taken in immediately, due to the seriousness of her condition, and the doctor had the results within a very short time.

His surprised but happy face broadcast the news. “A miracle has taken place. The Rebbe was right, once again! The tests we just did show that the growth is gone! There is no trace of it! There is no need for any treatment, and of course, no abortion is necessary!”

The woman found it hard to believe the news and insisted on another exam to verify the astounding news. Another test confirmed the miraculous results: there was no growth and the woman was fine!

A few months later, the woman gave birth to a healthy boy. The bris was celebrated with tremendous joy as the parents, and their relatives who heard the miracle story, praised Hashem for giving us the Rebbe King Moshiach Shlit"a , may he be revealed immediately!
(Few months ago I met Rabbi Moshe Antizadeh in 770 and he personaly verified the truth of this story.)
With respect and blessing.
