The Previous Belzer Rebbe annually baked Matzos Mitzvoh at Kfar Chabad. Our Rebbe directed the proprietor of the padriyad (bakery) to heed all of the Belzer Rebbe’s instructions.
One winter, the Belzer Rebbe sent a message to the bakery’s owner to construct an awning outside the bakery to prevent the matzos from getting wet in the event of rain. This instruction was very strange. It never rains in Eretz Yisroel on Erev Pesach. And anyway, where was he to cough up the thousands of sheqalim needed for such an awning. Yet the owner dutifully complied.
That erev Pesach, a torrent of rain unexpectedly descended upon Eretz Yisroel. With his foresight, the Belzer Rebbe saved everyone’s matzos mitzvoh from turning to gebroks.
