No Choice!


At a tisch, the Yesod HaAvodah asked one of his Chassidim (who had come from a different town) “How did you come here?” “By donkey.” “What would you do if you you’d fallen off the donkey, on the way?” “I would get back on, and continue traveling to the Rebbe.” “And if you fell down a second time, what would you do?” “I would mount the donkey again.” “And what would you do if you fell a third time?” “Rebbe,” the chassid said, “What should I do? Just sit on the ground and cry? There’s no choice. I would mount the donkey and try to get to the Rebbe again.”

The entire beis medresh was silent as the Rebbe and the chassid had this exchange. Then the Rebbe said to all his chassidim, “No matter how many times you fall, just get up and try again. There is no choice. There is no other way.” ~ R’ Elimelech Biderman Shlita
