Before Rosh Hashanah – Yom Kippur, it is customary to pray at the graves of one’s parents. This year, as I am in Poland, and many miles from my parents, I visited some of the better-known gravesites in Poland. Next week I will continue my journey to the different shtetls and go to many more holy sites.
I have to thank Rabbi Chaim Baruch Gluck for allowing me to accompany him on his travels and spend Rosh Hashanah with him in Krakow, in the shadow of many great tzaddikim such as the Remah and the Bach.
As is customary I recited some Tehillim at each site, having in mind all my family, friends and readers, wishing all a Ketivah v’Chatimah Tovah.
Rabbi Ben Tzion Halberstam, zt”l, of Bobov.
