Text of a sermon delivered immediately prior to the escape of the Grand Rabbi of Belz from Europe, to the safety of Palestine. Within the sermon (p.19) the rabbi assures his followers Hungarian Jewry will remain safe from the tragic fate that had befallen the Jews elsewhere in Europe. The controversial nature of this reflection was such, that it is omitted from further editions. See Z. Rabinowicz, The Encyclopedia of Hasidism (1996) p.404
