The Great Loss
In the final months of Reb Aharon’s life it was clear that he was preparing for his departure from this world. Before his final trip to Yerushlayim from his home in Tel Aviv, he asked to be dressed in his Shabbos clothing before saying farewell to the children of Tel Aviv. He wanted them to remember him in his Shabbos finery.
After the Shabbos of Parshas Eikev, the Rebbe’s holy Soul departed from his body, leaving behind a behind a nation that had just been orphaned from their great spiritual leader.
