A Miracle on Siyum HaShas Day

Malka’s mother began to open up, to share the memories she’d stored in the attic of her mind for decades.

Before I could ask Malka the obvious question, she filled me in. “All these items [being sorted] had already been put through a decontamination process beforehand… the tragic infant’s remains were black and shriveled.”

Just one horrid recollection, one moment of thousands of moments of atrocities stored deep in the memory bank of one gentle soul, sufferings she couldn’t bring herself to voice in all these years. Over 85% of holocaust survivors are today 75 years and older, and though hundreds of thousands of personal and eyewitness testimonials have been documented to date, there is no shortage of holocaust denials propagated by blatant anti-Semites worldwide.

Rosh Hashanah comes to remind us that Hashem is in charge of the universe. While many of us worry and wring our hands in despair over the evil that surrounds us at every turn, ultimately everything is in G-d’s hands — the same G-d Who awaits our heartfelt tefillos and teshuvah, the only One to turn to for all of our needs.

May our tremendous acts of chessed and continuous Torah learning deem us worthy of Hashem’s mercy and compassion, and may all of Klal Yisroel and good people everywhere merit His bounty and protection in the coming new year. Shana Tova!

The mishloach manos of times gone by were sometimes simple and sometimes elaborate, but the main focus was on the preparation of the delicious food they contained.

One of the earliest special Purims we have on record was celebrated by the Jews of Granada and Shmuel HaNagid, the eleventh-century rav, poet, soldier and statesman, and one of the most influential Jews in Muslim Spain.

Jews, wake up! Stop educating the world and start educating yourselves.

The lessons conform to the sensitivities and needs of the Orthodox community…

The program took on special significance as it marked not only the first anniversary of Rebbetzin Kudan’s levayah but also the 27th yahrzeit of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneerson, a”h.

It captures the love of the Jewish soul as only Shlomo Hamelech could portray it – and as only Rabbi Miller could explain it.

Erudite and academic, drawing from ancient and modern sources, the book can be discussed at the Shabbos table as well as in kollel.

I’m here to sit next to you and help you through this Purim with three almost-too-easy mishloach manot ideas, all made with cost-conscious paper bags.

Kids want to be like their friends, and they want to give and get “normal” mishloach manos stocked with store-bought treats.

Whenever he did anything loving for me, I made a big deal about it.

“OMG, it’s so cute, you’re so cute, everything is so cute.”

A program that started with a handful of volunteers has grown exponentially to include students from a wider array of backgrounds.
