In a previous post I asked:
I once read an account of Hasidic rabbi whose narration of the passage through the Sea of Reeds at the Passover Seder was so vivid that the people seated at the table pulled their coats more tightly around them, because they could feel the drops of water coming in upon them from the walls of water on the right and the left.
Can anyone direct me to a source of this account?
My own research subsequently turned up an answer. The story I found varies in its details, but the main point is the same. It concerns Rabbi Shmelke of Nikolsburg reciting the Song of the Sea in Shaharit, and can be found in Moses Menahem Walden, Ohel Yitsḥak (Piotrków: Liebeskind, 1914), p. 74 (= 37b); trans. Yitzhak Buxbaum in Jewish Spiritual Practices (Lanham, Md.: Rowman and Allanheld, 2005), p. 536.
I would still be grateful for any other relevant sources.
