For accuracy purposes, we are posting it in Hebrew the way we received it from the source:

כששמע רבן של ישראל מרן שר התורה שליט”א על האסון הנורא הלילה בהר מירון סמוך ונראה לציון הרשב”י, הגיב בכאב עז: אין אנו יודעים חשבונות שמיים, וכשנשאל במה להתחזק בשעה קשה זו השיב רבינו: להתפלל.

  1. I had my heart set on going to the Bobover Bais Hachaim today in Deans NJ as chasidim insist that the Bobover Rebbe R’ Naftali is a gilgal of R’ Shimon Bar Yochai but I’m scared to go as something is going on in Shomayim and since it’s Erev Shabbos you can only go till midday of which it will probably be extra crowded.
    I’ll go to him אי״ה on my fathers yuhrtzeit in a few weeks.
