An old man named Rabbi Eliahou comes into the shed looking for his son, who was separated from him while running. Rabbi Eliahou is a good man, admired by all, and he and his son had remained together for three years in the concentration camps. Eliezer tells the Rabbi that he hasn't seen the man's son, but after he leaves, he realizes that he actually had. The son had seen his father falling behind in the pack, but he had continued to run farther and farther away from him. He had been trying to get away from the burden of looking after a weak father. Eliezer prays to God for the strength never to act in the same way that Rabbi Eliahou's son did.
thank you ^
Thank you so much for this information. I had an interesting dream one night, and a Rabbi Elihu talked to me, when i googled the name, this site popped up. This story makes me believe that i was speaking to Rabbi Eliahou. Interesting.
what did rabbi learn about his son?
