CHILLING: Lipa’s ‘chance encounter’ with pilot linked to wounded soldier uplifted by him

14

(VINnews) — Legendary singer and entertainer Lipa Schmeltzer has made headlines recently, after performing for wounded soldiers and other Israelis on the front lines. Lipa posted an uplifting video Sunday, of himself meeting an airline pilot as he heads back to Israel. That encounter turned out to have a deeper significance.

On the video, Lipa explained that he was going to pose for a picture with the (non-Chassidishe) Jewish pilot named Chaim, in a display of achdus — to show unity with those Jews who come from a different background.

Lipa recounted how the pilot affirmed the idea of achdus, because his friend’s son was wounded, and he was visited by Jews of all backgrounds, in a display of Jewish unity.

When looking at the pictures of the wounded son, Lipa discovered that he himself had visited the young man. In other words, the achdus was contributed to by Lipa himself, as the wounded man was uplifted by the fact that a Chassidic singer who did not know him came to visit.

Lips took this as hashgacha pratis, a message from Hashem that he should continue to perform for all Jews, regardless of background.

You’ve got to love when Hashem throws you the subtle messages, hey my son, keep it up, I’m watching and shepping nachas….

We are not supporting the modern Zionist movement, they were anti Torah, what we do support is every individual Jew (as even the Holy Satmer Rebbe Reb Yoel did. One needs to be able to separate the movement from the individual as the countless stories of Reb Yoel Zt’l helping yidden who proclaimed to be Zionist

Im not affiliated with Satmer nor do I follow any of their ideals, but we need to be honest of what Reb Yoel Zt’l held and did. Yes he screamed on the Zionist movement yet he helped individuals who were heavily invested in the movement.

Hashem expect us to have Ahavas Yisroel and Achdus

GO LIPA GO!!!!

Go lipa! I love how you do what’s right and ignore the armchair losers that have no idea what’s really happening but have lots of insane opinions. You go man! Your enemies are so so jealous that they haven’t done a thing to help.

A schmeltzer he is

Schmeltzer, Lipa’s surname (family name, last name), in Yiddish means a welder. A welder connects different parts together, to be part of one body. That is what (Eliezer) Lipa is doing here, he is connecting people to each other.

Thank you Mr. Welder!

Let’s make his next concert a sellout, SRO only. Even if you’re not into that music genre as I. Still, let’s mob the venue.
