|Beit Midrash-The Apter Rav-Keeping A Promise|
The 5th of Nisan is the Yahrtzeit of Rav Avraham Yehoshua Heshel of Apt, the Ohev Yisrael. In the moment of death the Apter cried out, “Why does the Son of Yishai delay?” He wept and said, “The Rabbi of Berditchev promised before his death to disturb the peace of all the tzaddikim in heaven and not stop until the Messiah would come. But they have so overwhelmed him with delights in palace after palace, that he has forgotten. But I will not forget.” (Gemeinde der Chassidim, page 230)
