    The other side of the story

    Ephraim Zion says it best when he describes, without giving too many details, the heart ache, and the flip side of all the glory and succes stories. And let’s not forget Yossel who flew out for just one day to be there for you. Whatever help and advice you might have provided to him all these years is between the two of you and der Aibershter, but the fact he made such a trip to show his Hakaras Hatov, speaks for itself. In reading his lines, one gets a new inspiration and feeling for the lonely Shliach who has to… Read more »

    Started with less than nothing. During shiva for his mother, he got a call telling him he was being fired from his position as rabbi of the Jewish community. He stayed and started Chabad as an independent entity. They now hire a new rabbi every few years, but R’ Mordechai has been a constant. He slowly built ka”h a huge and impressive network in Asia. He fixed the mikveh, brought kosher, started the school, shul, all without initial support or encouragement from many locals. And now all the “leaders” came to celebrate his tenacity. Nice to see they’ve come around.… Read more »

    It is heart warming to see such love and care from those who love you and admire your work.

    May you go from Chayil el Choyil.
    Keep the great work you do and continue to bring more Yidden closer to hashem thereby honoring the name of Lubavitch.

    Mazel Tov… What a wonderful and fitting way to show appreciation to a man who is an angel.
    One who literally changed the Jewish spectrum of the far East.

    Barely a handful of people would have lasted out there and grown Chabad of the far East to what it is today.

    Many more happy, healthy, wealthy, easy and Nachasdike years ahead.
