Asked whether following the Rebbe’s advice with his son’s life at stake was difficult, Steinsaltz said, “Look, it was a difficult thing, but in situations like this where you really know very little – and I knew enough about the subject to know that all the rest knew very little – I had to trust that the Rebbe’s ability to see is much bigger than anybody else.”

My Rebbe, published by Maggid Books, is available in Judaica stores and online.

About the Author: Elliot Resnick is a Jewish Press staff reporter and author of “Movers and Shakers: Sixty Prominent Personalities Speak Their Mind on Tape” (Brenn Books).
