• Rostov: Bochurim Help Conduct Jewish Burial Near Rebbe Rashab

    When a group from Moscow, Russia’s Bolshaya Bronya community ended up being delayed as their plane attempted to land in the city of Rostov, little did they know that divine providence would lead them to help complete a Jewish burial in the town’s cemetery, yards away from the ohel of the Rebbe Rashab • Full Story, Photos, Video

    On Erev Shabbos a group from Moscow’s Bolshaya Bronya departed on a trip to Rostov to spend Shabbos Parshas Vayechi with Rabbi Yitzchok Kogan, Shliach to Bolshaya Bronya, as well as the person in charge of upkeeping the Lubavitch holy sites inside the Russian Federation.

    They had plans to arrive in the local shul, then daven Shacharis at the home of the Rebbe Rashab and start preparing for Shabbos.

    However b’hasgocha protis when their plane attempted to land, the pilot instead circled around the airport for a considerable amount of time, as the city was under heavier than normal cloud cover, presenting a possibly risky situation.

    After about an hour and a half the plane finally landed and the trip schedule had changed. The group was to go daven in the Rebbe’s house and proceed straight to the Rebbe Rashab’s ohel.

    While leaving the ohel the Bochurim noticed something unusual, a large crowd was gathered in the area. This is no regular occurrence in the city’s Jewish cemetery

    It was a funeral of a Jew who ch”v married a non-Jew that had passed away.

    His kids who were present were not Jewish.

    Immediately the bochurim walked over to the group to complete the minyan, subsequently completing the burial and allowing for Kaddish to be said.

    The fact that this Jew merited a Jewish burial was all with divine providence, due to their flight’s delay, causing them to be in the cemetery at that exact time, later than they had planned.

    Later they proceeded to immerse themselves in the mikvah of the Rebbe Rashab, which was the first built according to his opinion of  bor al gabei bor.

    The group spent an uplifting Shabbos in the city, farbrenging and listening to many stories told over by Rabbi Kogan.
