    Your Story Brings Me Closer To My Heritage

    I read your story and your most gracious Thank You to the One who left you a “gift” at your door and my heart and eyes well up with tears. Along the road I have lost my connection to Judaism and along the road I have been returning with my faith in G d and belief that it is the way to live in this chaotic world. Your story is what helps to bring to life my deep yearning for Torah. It was so special to me to read this and all I can say at this time is G… Read more »

    Only tears in my eyes. May you be blessed to continue doing mitzvos like this. And to the recipient: very soon you will be onthe other side.

    Amazing story, inspiring and beautiful, but as usual theres a but. That paper towel could have contained a bomb (ח”ו) or something else dangerous. The man who wrote this should have been more carerfull INCASE it was something bad. If somebody wants to do this amazing Mitzvah, make sure to do it in a way that wont make the person fearfully kick it to the garbage.

    These things definitely do happen, and happened to me too.
    The company I worked for went bankrupt a few months ago, and within a couple of weeks of people finding out my situation, a large case of chicken was delivered to my door, paid and all – completely free!
    There are very kind, anonymous people in CH, and it truly is a blessing to live in a place like this.

    of course it happens. like you said with a case of chicken. usually not with $500 cash and even more bizarre is that the $500 was just what he needed for pesach???!!!

    One tree falling in the forest makes makes more noise than the entire forest growing. Good deeds like this take place every day, but the machlokes makes the most noise.

    BS:D The commentors are not the only ones happy to hear such a story. Read this: Rabbi VS obm taught in Conn ( before moving to CH ).He needed an operation , but could not afford the fee that the doctor wanted. Rabbi JJ Hecht obm interceded and the doctor reduced his fee to a more affordable amount. At his next Yechidus, Rabbi VS told the Rebbe what happened. The Rebbe was very happy and responded ” you have no idea what nachas ruach I have when my children take care of each other.”I heard this story from the son… Read more »
