From an ongoing translation of the holy words of Saba Yisroel


(Did you get up for midnight? Sleep at midnight?) yes, not exactly at midnight, but I liked to get up two or three hours before daybreak and I got down... (to do what?) Psalms, midnight, Psalms... and I was... the Creator gave me such a sould that I yearned for Torah, I was on fire for Torah and fear of Heaven, I was solicitous, charedi (solicitous)... In any event – so what I saw that hasidim, how they conducted, I was the first, and I was the biggest of all Karlin. They screamed the prayer, so I screamed. Such screams I screamed that I could faint! “You are killing me! You are making me dead! You are killing me, what do you want from me?” an elder Jew, 80 years old or 90 years old, there was an old man next to me, he said to me, “You are a fiend, I am an old man, I already can't hear, and you want to make me completely deaf? What do you want from me? Why do you scream so much?”
