MANY PEOPLE RECEIVE AMAZING HELP
WITH DIFFICULT PROBLEMS, IN THE ZCHUS OF MAHARAL TZINTZ ZT”L
the Rebbe lay on his bed, his strength ebbing, the air was
filled with tension. He was surrounded by his best students,
who were all brilliant talmidei chachomim in their own right,
and they strained to hear their revered mentor’s final words,
his parting advice to them before he left this world.
the Rebbe gestured weakly and pointed to one of the walls
of his modest dwelling, saying, “Please bring me the wooden
tablet from there.”When this was done, the Rebbe, with his
last bit of strength, wrote on it the words that would resonate
throughout the centuries, and which would have a profoundly
beneficial effect on all who heeded them: “I shall act as
an advocate on behalf of whoever helps print my sefarim.”
Seeing the astonishment on the faces of his students at this
bold declaration, the Rebbe assured them, “A merchant does
not hang up a sign in his shop unless he has merchandise to

journey to the upper realms. He is interred in the great bais

in his last moments in this world.
was this extraordinary tzaddik? His name was Moreinu Harav
Aryeh Leib (Maharal) Tzintz. The great gaon wrote many sefarim,
and he was very much interested in seeing to it that they
were printed and distributed. That is why he made the promise
which he did.
there are many stories told of people who were helped in miraculous
ways after they undertook to print the sefarim of the gaon.
The organization which is dedicated to the publication of
the Maharal’s seforim knows of many cases of people who have
seen yeshuos which are clearly miraculous. These involve recovery
from life-threatening diseases, obtaining good parnassa, finding
proper shidduchim, nachas from children, etc.

and warmhearted Yid. Hashem has blessed him with wealth, and
he utilizes his money wisely, giving to tzedaka and worthy
causes with an open hand.
happened once that in one of his business dealings with another
company, he made a serious misstep. As a result, the other
firm started legal proceedings against him, and he soon realized
that this blunder would probably cost him many
tens of millions of
dollars. He quickly hired the best lawyers available, attorneys
who were famed for their expertise with this particular type
problem, and paid
them hundreds of thousands of dollars for their services.
However, after examining and analyzing the case, they told
Mr. S that quite frankly, they could hold out little hope
for him, despite their best efforts.
was devastating news; even for a man of Mr. S’s considerable
wealth, the tremendous losses that he faced would be a very
serious blow. However, a close friend gave him some excellent
advice. “There is another lawyer who is much more effective
than any of those you’ve hired, and whose words carry a great
deal of weight in Shomayim, with a corresponding impact down
here.” After learning of the Maharal Tzintz’s promise to help
those who assist in publishing his seforim, Mr. S lost no
time in contacting the Machon. He insisted on paying the entire
cost of the sefer which was then being readied for print,
so that the “attorney” would begin working on the case immediately.
soon as he made this wise move, things started happening with
such astounding speed, that Mr. S is visibly moved every time
he talks about it. The case against him simply fell apart,
and those at the opposing company who
wished to do him harm were summarily dismissed from their
posts. In fact, the other company was forced to pay Mr. S’s
