The Admor of Sanz surprised his Chassidim this Rosh HaShanah before Tekias Shofar by pleading for financial security for the coming year.
Each year before Tekias Shofar on Rosh HaShanah, the Rebbe stands before the Aron Kodesh and pleads on behalf of the Jewish people. His Chassidim were surprised this year when, on the second day of Rosh HaShanah, he cried out, "The words of the Zohar HaKodesh, saying that one should not ask for physical things on Rosh HaShanah but only for Malchus Shomayim, are well known. But what can we say at this time, when Klal Yisroel all over the world suffers from financial hardships?
In his Shabbos Shuva Drashah, he stressed that the coming year will be one of Geulah, and urged his Chassidim to prepare themselves.
