Fellow Chabad emissaries in the Commonwealth of Independent States called it a clear Holiday of redemption miracle – as Lubavitch emissary and rabbi of the Jewish community of Birobidzhan Rabbi Elihau Riss, 22, escaped unharmed after the car he was driving was crushed under the wheels of a heavy truck that slid on the icy road, at -8 degrees Fahrenheit.

The accident took place today, Tuesday, in Birobidzhan, which was established by Soviet Tyrant Joseph Stalin as a Jewish Republic. Rabbi Riss, who had worn his seat belt, stayed in his grotesquely crushed car after it had been hit directly by the swerving truck. Rescue teams released him completely free from injury.
