The Alter’s Concentration

Once, during the Russian civil war, R’ Nosson Zvi Finkel (the “Alter”) and R’ Yaakov Kamenetsky were davening in a room in the midst of an artillery bombardment by the White Army.  White they were reciting Shemoneh Esrei, a large chandelier came crashing down from the ceiling.  After finishing his prayers, the Alter saw the chandelier on the floor and turned to R’ Yaakov to ask how it had come to be there. ~ Five Great Lives
