Bobov 45: Have you heard, and more importantly can you vouch for the unique and unbelievable story in this week Inyan?

In a story by Moshe Shimon Reichberg, beginning on page 19 of this weeks Inyan, it speaks of a long time Menahel of the Bobover Yeshiva, who went to R' Naftali a"h for a Bracha, in the winter of 2002 (nowhere near Lab BaOmer).

R' Naftali gave a Bracha and R' Naftali said "Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai will be with me on Lag BaOmer".

The Menahel wondered why the Rav was talking about Lag Ba Omer right after Chanukah.

Many years later, this Menahel's (not one, not two, but three) THREE youngest children were married but childless after years.

After trying all kinds of Segulos, in the year 2010, on Lag BaOmer, the Menahel and his wife went to Dean, NJ, where R' Naftali is buried, and cried to R' Naftali, saying "You told me that Rabbi Shimon will be with you on Lag BaOmer! Go up to Kisei HaKavod and daven for my children. Knock on the doors of Rabi Shimon and bring forth our salvation!".

Within a year ALL THREE previously childless children (not one, not two, but three) had children.

This sounds amazing!

Stories like these dont happen every day. Can anyone in Bobov 45 vouch for this miraculous story, because you know who it happened to, and its true?

I wanted to hear from people who can vouch for these specific details, theyre so unbelievable. Three childless couples in one family, had children in the same year.

Even if the story were true, which seems unlikely, how would it affect you? What would you do that you don't do now? Genuinely curious.

Yes, I personally know the people involved. And this story is true. I'll ask them if I can post the name but I think the story is pretty public so I don't think they would mind

I'm Bobov 48. We were just discussing this last week before this was printed. There have already been many stories about people who have gone to him on lag baomer and seen yeshuos. They have bus loads full of people who go on lag baomer.

My father did talk about the person who had children after going there but I don't recall a name. I would assume if they printed the story it is accurate.

Anyway, what can it hurt to go?

I just spoke to a family member who said it's fine to post names. This story happened to the Miller family. Mrs Miller is a daughter of Rabbi Aaron Twersky. They had 3 married children that were all childless.

Id consider very seriously going to Deans on Lag BaOmer, for starters.

By the way, can women get anywhere the Kevarim on Lag BaOmer. or other days?

Don't know specifically about lag baomer, but women can definitely get to the bobov kevarim. They are in a large building, with sep entrances for men and women.

Is this R' Aron Twersky, the distinguished law school professor, who has a son in law Miller, a Bobover Menahel?

Small world! R' Aron Twersky was my husband's Law School professor. He was and still is, beloved by all the students, Jewish and non-Jewish. He's an amazing man, Amush!

Im well aware of that.

Im curious though, since the split, does Bobov 48 treat R' Naftali's Yahrtzeit the same as R' Shloima's Yahrtzeit?

Also, is R Aron Twersky a "neutral Chasid", or is he a Chassid more of Bobov 48 or Bobov 45?
