The Lubliner Rebbe

The Shinover Rebbe relates that this episode occurred when the Lubliner Rebbe was still very young.  The Lubliner Rebbe was afraid that he would be unable to resist Satan’s blandishments, so he ran outside into the bitter winter cold.  He almost froze to death – but he overcame Satan’s temptation.

Having conquered the yetzer hara, the Lubliner Rebbe’s appearance reflected an aura of kedusha – so much  so that when he visited the saintly R’ Elimelech of Lizhensk, the latter rose and greeted him, “Baruch haba, welcome, Yosef Hatzaddik!” ~ Divrei Yechezkel, Likutim
