About Rabbi Dovid of Dinov ('Tzemach Dovid') Spira

Story about Rabbi Dovidel Shapira, the Tzadik of Dinow 

The youth Elazar was eleven years old when his father Rabbi Elimelech passed away and Rabbi Dovidel Shapira the Tzadik of Dinow took him into his home to raise him and educate him.

One of the Hassidim who was present at the time that the youth Elazar arrived in Dinow tells that Rabbi Dovid the Tzadik turned to him and said: “Behold, there is an honored guest with us. Prepare refreshments.” The child answered: “I have no money”. Rabbi Dovidel said: “I will search for you”.

The youth took off his coat and uncovered his heart and said: “On the contrary. You search me and you will only find sins, transgressions and violations.”

The Tzadik was moved when he heard the words of the youth and said with admiration: “Rabbi Elimelech left us a wonderful child”. The youth remained in Dinow for only three quarters of a year, and from there he traveled to Rabbi Chaim the Tzadik of Sanz, who took him into his home, treated him as one of his own children, and looked after him with a watchful eye and with love.
