About HoRav Elchonon Halperin

The Baal Shem Tov once came to visit Reb Elchonon, and found him asleep. He said that the members of the house should not wake Reb Elchonon from his sleep, stating "his sleep is the sleep of Yaakov Avinu." The Baal Shem also said about him that the intentions that he (Reb Elchonon) had as he dressed himself were greater than those that he himself concentrated on during his prayers.
