The Cherkasser on Erev Rosh Hashanah

Once the Rebbe Reb Yaakov Yisroel of Cherkass came to Mincha on Erev Rosh Hashanah very late. Seeing the surprise on the faces of those assembled to daven, he explained, "My brothers (referring to his seven brothers, the tzadikim of Chernobyl, Koristchov, Tolna, Trisk, Mekarev, Skver and Rachmistrivka) and I do not come in to Mincha on Erev Rosh Hashanah until we have rectified the neshama of every Jew."

(See Yalkut Me'orei Ohr, pg. 44, in the name of the chosid Reb Yitzchok Zakan, z"l, who heard it from his uncle who was present at the time.)
