Rav Shach's story
מרן הרב הגאון ר' אלעזר
מנחם מן שך זצ"ל
The ר' יעקב
בן *יעקב משה לורברבוים מליסא נתיבות who
was in a bad marriage and suffered terribly from his wife,
tried divorcing her but she refused to accept a גט.
R. Akiva Eiger zt”l got involved and tried
to convince her to accept a גט. She responded,
“ My husband is such a great and holy man. I would
never willingly accept a גט from such a great צדיק.”
Rav Shach commented ” Even though she recognized his greatness and
holiness she still made him צרות גדולות עד לשמים .”
Similarly, said Rav Shach “We find in the פסוק
ונברכו בך כל משפחות All of mankind
will recognize the greatness of Avraham Avinu
(כלל ישראל) yet there will be ומקללך ,
Avraham Avinu who would curse and
try harming his children.
