Alone And Not Alone


Remembering My Dear Wife, Rebbetzin Lillian Chomsky,


On Her First Yahrzeit


 


                              
   Alone and not alone am I,
   Little till now did I know why.
   Of the various menus that life does serve,
   Not all do we accept, or feel we deserve.
   Especially is the loss of a beloved difficult to bear,

   A source of joy and comfort, for whom we shed many a tear.
   No one can replace her, to be sure,
   Devastating is the loss of a soul, so beautiful, so pure.

   Never a bad word about her could one say,
   Outstandingly successful in her multifaceted tasks, from day to day.
   Teacher, wife, mother, grandma, excelling in all,

   Ashining example, royally graceful and tall.
   Love for family, and for good deeds,
   Over and above expectations, she provided our needs.
   Now and forever, my sweet dear Lillian is part of me,
   Entwining our glorious life together unto eternity!

The husband needs to make some changes!

Purim is a fantastic time for fantasies, so I hope you won’t mind my fantasizing about how easy life would be if kids would prefer healthy cuisine over sweets. Imagine waking up to the call of “Mommy, when will my oatmeal be ready?”… As you rush to ladle out the hot unsweetened cereal, you rub […]

One should not give the money before Purim morning or after sunset.

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 was only in the reign of George III (1760-1820) that Jews became socially acceptable in Britain, and Nathan became music master to Princess Charlotte and musical librarian to King George IV.

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.
