R’ Elimelech of Lizhensk Zt”l


R’ Elimelech of Lizhensk said, “I am confident of being admitted to Gan Eden.  The Heavenly Court will ask me, ’Melech, did you study adequately?’ and I will say, ‘No.’ They will say, ‘Did you daven properly?’ and I will say, ‘No.’  They will say, ‘Did you give adequate tzedakah?’ and I will say, ‘No.’  They will say, ‘He is truthful.  Let him into Gan Eden.’”
