The Daughter Promised To Light Candles, Son-In-Law Promised Tefillin, And Luis Was Released

71

NEW YORK (VINnews) — Just one week ago, the daughter of Luis Harr, who was rescued from captivity Monday morning in dramatic fashion by the IDF, came together with her husband to pray at the Ohel of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, according to a Facebook post by Naama Tuchfeld, wife of Yisrael Hayom journalist Mati Tuchfeld.

The two were hosted by Chabad of Five Towns, and later went to Miami where they spoke movingly to an audience about their ordeal.

The two were asked whether they needed any financial help and they answered that they didn’t require money, just that people should be aware of their plight and pray for their family members. When asked what they felt Israel should do, they replied that “We aren’t proposing to say what should be done, we’re just saying that people should remain aware.”


Then Rebbetzin Lipskar came to the podium and said: “It’s not the government, it’s not the IDF, it’s only Hashem who can provide the solution. I request that you accept upon yourselves some aspect of Torah and Mitzvos, something hard for you so that you can tell Hashem you acted with Mesirus Nefesh (self-sacrifice) and therefore are deserving of a miracle.”

The daughter took upon herself to light candles , and the son-in-law took upon himself to place Tefillin, but asked if it could wait until next week.

Rebbetzin Lipskar said: No, you must start tomorrow, to bring a blessing to your family. The audience then collaborated to buy him a pair of Tefillin, and then the daughter burst into tears and asked if she could receive a pair of Tefillin for her father when he is released. The attendees granted her wish as well.

A week later, Luis has been reunited with his family BH.

Let’s not forget that the only other hostage who was rescued by Israel, not connected to the hostage deal, was that female soldier, whose name i unfortunately forgot. Her mother did Hafrashas Challah right before her rescue. Anyone see a message here? Hashem is telling us something!

I heard the voice note that’s been going around (Disclaimer: it wasn’t an actual recording of Rebbetzin Lipskar speaking). That note quotes Rebbetzin Lipskar as follows verbatim:
“When something like this happens, it’s not the IDF, it’s not the Israeli government, it’s nothing, it’s nobody but Hashem to make a miracle happen”

A message from Rebbetzin Chani Lipskar:
The voice note that went around and the message that’s being spread regarding our IDF and our government was interpreted incorrectly!

What I did say was that the IDF are the Shluchim of Hashem snd we need to look to Hashem for the miracle..
Each soldier of the IDF is a great hero living a life of self sacrifice each moment of their day snd night.
My grandson is a lone soldier and was in Gaza as well!
The IDF are our heroes and at the same time we all recognize as do the soldiers of the IDF that the miracles come to us from
Hashem through His messengers!
Hopefully this will clarify what I did actually say and not what was interpreted by another.

VIN please update the title of this article. These hostages were rescued, as written in the article, not released as written in your title.

Thank you
