Thoughts on Yesterday's Levaya

The yeshiva went to Kfar Chabad yesterday to take part of the Holtzberg levaya (funeral). I don't think that I am capable of expressing the pain that the entire Jewish world felt at the loss of these two incredible people. What I can tell over is something unique that I experienced to put even more perspective on the incredible Jewish unity we have in this country.
We were not able to stay for the entire levaya and we arrived back in Ramat Beit Shemesh at about the time it was ending.
One of our Rabbeim who travels from Bar Ilan to RBS everyday mentioned some of the things that had been mentioned by the final speaker.
We asked him how he knew what was being spoken about at the levaya.
The hespadim (eulogies) were being brodcast on the radio as well as television all over the country. And the bus that he was on was tuned to that station.
