נקמה -- מנהג לשים סכין בתוך קבר יהודי הנרצח - The custom to burya murdered Jew with a knife


סיפור שאינה לא ידוע, ונשכח בהיסח הדעת, אבל יש לנו ללמוד מהר ממנה למעשה, ובעזה"י נראה נקם מאויבינו, בזכות הפתק הקדוש של נ נח נחמ נחמן מאומן:

In the writings of the great Breslover Hasid, R' Shmuel Horowitz ob"m (a best friend of Saba Yisroel, receiver of the holy Petek of Na Nach Nachma Nachman MeUman), he records the following story:
There was once a very successful Jewish merchant, and the gentiles were jealous of him and they ambushed him and killed him R"L, HYD. He was buried with a knife in his grave, as that was the custom to so bury a murdered Jew. Afterwards the gentiles began to see this Jew chasing after them with a knife, and he would kill them one by one. They had no idea what was going on, but there was an apostate Jew amongst them who revealed to them the custom, and they decided to dig up the grave and if they would find it to be true that there was a knife there, they would G"F wipe out the Jewish community. That night the Rabbi of the city, the holy Ba"Ch was studying the whole night and before sunrise he dosed off and in a dream he was warned to quickly remove the knife from the grave, he didn't pay much attention to the dream, until it occurred again and again. So he immediately ordered for it to be done, they went to the grave and dug it up and they found this Jew clutching the knife in his hand and they were unable to release it from his iron grasp. They informed the Ba"Ch. The Ba"Ch told them to tell the Jew that they would accept upon themselves various virtuous rectifications of Torah learning, prayer, and good deeds if he would release the knife, but it was to no avail. They were running out of time, so the Ba"Ch himself went over and whispered something into his ear, and with that the murdered Jew gave up the knife, and they quickly resealed his grave. No one knew what the Ba"Ch had whispered, until it came time for the holy Ba"Ch to pass away, and he commanded that he be buried next to this Jew....... 

זה הסיפור פתחתי עכשיו, מתוך הרבה הרבה חומר, שכמעט התייאשתי לעיין בה בכלל, כי תפסת מרובה לא תפסת, ואז החלטתי לפתוח למשהו, ופתחתי לזה הסיפור, שהיה בימי הב"ח - הבית חדש (פירוש מכובד נדפס על צד הטור שולחן ערוך) חותנו של הט"ז (טורי זהב - פירוש נכבד נדפס על צד השולחן ערוך), שהערלים נתקאנו בסוחר יהודי מצליח, ורצחו אותו, והיהודים קיימו את המנהג לשים סכין קטן בתוך קבר הנרצח, ואז הגוים ראו את היהודי הנרצח רודף אחריהם עם הסכין, והוא הרג מהם אחד אחד, ולא היה מפסיק עיין שם כל הסיפור... כן יאבדו כל אויבך השם.
