• Rabbi Groner Testifies: The Rebbe Affirmed Title “Melech Hamoshiach”

    For days, the Jewish judge heard testimony from various individuals who were involved in publishing Chabad works throughout the years, including the founding and running of Kehos. Among those called to testify was the Rebbe’s secretary, Rabbi Leibel Groner Full Story

    Last week in a federal district court, a judge began hearings in a case set to determine who may use the Kehos logo when publishing Chabad books.

    For days, the Jewish judge heard testimony from various individuals who were involved in publishing Chabad works throughout the years, including accounts of the founding of Kehos by the previous Lubavitcher Rebbe, and the running of that institution by the Rebbe.

    Among those called to testify was the Rebbe’s secretary Rabbi Leibel Groner, who was charged by the Rebbe with working to publish the Torah of our Rabbeim, and doing so for many years. In that capacity, Rabbi Groner merited numerous instructions and much guidance from the Rebbe about publishing those works, and how Kehos, the official publishing arm of Chabad, ought to operate.

    During Rabbi Groner’s testimony, he was asked whether using the title “Melech Hamoshiach” was ever authorized, or allowed, by the Rebbe to be used in the Rebbe’s Seforim. This after noting that some Seforim bear that title, such as the Lekutei Sichos and “Bsuras Hageulah”.

    Rabbi Groner responded that he once entered the Rebbe’s room and expressly asked whether they may use the title, and the Rebbe consented. Afterwards, he read for the Rebbe the exact wording of the title page of “Besuras Hageulah” which states Melech Hamoshiach after the Rebbe’s name, and asked whether that may be printed, and the Rebbe nodded his holy head in the affirmative.

    Subsequently, Rabbi Groner related that once the Rebbe asked him why Chasidim are saying that the Rebbe is Moshiach, to which he replied it’s because all the criterion of Moshiach enumerated in the Rambam match the Rebbe’s profile, and the Rebbe accepted that.
