I live in America as a shaliach and I am humbled to be the beneficiary of such a selfless man who created the education that I greatly benefitted from!! Thank Gd for this much needed documentary that puts into perspective the sacrifice of such a family who planted the seed of Chabad that didn’t just create The Yeshiva Center – but literally brought Yiddishkeit to all of Australia!!!

Fantastic!

Fantastic!

I feel privileged to be acquainted with some of Reb Moshe Feiglin’s descendants who follow in his footsteps as leaders and teachers for our time. To the producers of this well done film, I look forward to Part 2!

Question: What motivated him to go to Australia? It mentioned his intense yearning to stay in EY but then he shortly after moved to Australia. Also why Australia?
I watched the whole thing it was amazing!

The reason that he would have had to leave E Y in such a rush was due to the fact that he had just heard that the Turks were on the way to arrest him for underground activities, in all likelihood connected with N.I.L.I.”
Why Australia ?
Amongst the reasons was the fact that the Australian Government had just then begun to sponsor assisted migration.

What a inspiration.

Mottel and company. It is truly an amazing film. I am very proud to be an Ainekel of Zeida Moshe. What “big shoes to fill”. This is the way all history should be taught. Kol Hakavod.
