I was at a large dinner-like gathering, and the Rebbe was sitting at the middle of the head table (the Rebbe looked like he did in the photographs from back in the early 50’s). The room was very plain, something like a recently painted and clean school auditorium.Ok, that’s the dream. Being that a dream is personal I wasn’t planning on sharing it – but is there a down side to posting it? I decided that there isn’t.
There were many objectionable things going on at this function and I was contemplating my departure. One specific objectionable occurrence took place, and I looked to the Rebbe to see his reaction. The Rebbe’s face took on a pained expression, and he remained silent.
At this, I got up and walked out – but then I changed my mind and reentered the room. I walked directly over to the Rebbe and I leaned over and asked (paraphrasing from my memory of the dream here):
“How can the Rebbe allow this to go on, and remain silent?!”
The Rebbe looked at me and answered:
“Two things must be done:
1. The people in charge of this function must be spoken with – they must be reminded that there is a scheduled program and it is their responsibility to see to it that the program is adhered to. At this point they must regain control and return to the planned events.
2. There should be a Sefer Teireh here. Whenever a Melech BeYisroel would go anywhere he had a Sefer Teirah with him – this reminds people that their connection is to Teirah, and it will keep them from deviating from the derech hayoshor.”
