Not a Tzaddik


In the process of editing sections of my book, I sent a short piece to the Sudilkover Rebbe that contained a story about himself. Noticing that I used the term kvittel, the Rebbe suggested that I remove this word.

The term was not appropriate he told me. He then returned the following written edits:

“He is not a tzaddik and therefore it’s not a real kvittel; just a working tool.”

The level of honest humility that is shown in this short post (on the part of the Rebbe) is amazing.

I agree with Reb. Harris, it is truly amazing and inspiring. Today, I tried eating like a tzaddik, by bringing the food to me instead of me to the food... long story short, being a tzaddik is hard. BTW what is your book going to be on? I am very curious and excited for it to come out!

So what are you going to do? You can't go against him obviously, are you going to include this story as an explanation?
