The Telegram from NY - 1967

In 1967, Rabbi Shlomo Schwartz was part of a delegation of students sent by the Rebbe to revitalize the Toras Emes Yeshiva in Jerusalem. The group was in Israel on the cusp of the Six Day War. As the war drums were being beaten across the Arab world, many American Yeshiva students were leaving Israel in fear. After asking the Lubavitcher Rebbe whether to stay or leave, the response that they got would make headlines in the Israeli Press and boost the morale of the country ahead of the war.

From Living Torah, Disc 166, Program 663.
