Rebbe Dollars Returned by Remorseful Thief

Who knows, perhaps Elul has an influence on thieves too – at least it does on this one.

Rabbi Levi Vilmovsky, who heads the Chabad operation in Migdal HaEmek, a resident of Kfar Chabad, was recently the victim of a burglary as his family was out of the home, celebrating a family bar mitzvah. Among the items taken was an envelope containing dollars given to him from the Rebbe Z”TL. The dollars have significant emotional value to Rav Vilmovsky and his family, and they made a public appeal to the thief to please return the envelope, which he did.

Using a third party to act as intermediary, the envelope with the Rebbe dollars made its way back to the Vilmovsky home.
