    Dear fellow yidden, As I think about the tragedy that befell us, our brothers and sister, some important thoughts come to my mind. I think to myself what could we as yidden and some of us shluchim do to improve and become better people. About three quarters of a year ago we received a phone call from Rabbi Holtzberg the father of Rabbi Holtzberg who came to our state where we are one shlichus to collect money for his grandson who would be having an operation. He asked us over the phone if we could possibly help him. We said… Read more »

    Yes, we need to look at the positive and add in acts of goodness and kindness but it doesn’t take away from the fact that atrocities are taking place in our backyard. we MUST be aware of the situation and do our best to help out the downtrodden Shluchim.

    Money is very important in helping people survive but at the same time our survival may be dependant on good deeds and good feelings towards other Yidden. Let us all work on doing at least one good and positive deed in memory of the holy Neshamos that were taken from us and then maybe Hashem will give us all plenty Bgashmius so that we can share that too…

    STOP BLAMING THE VICTIMS

    Firstly, may the families of the Kedoshim know no more sorry and Hashem should grant them strength to deal with this tragedy. It is admirable to hear the undertakings from around the globe to increase in Torah and Mitzvot in the merit of the Holzbergs, but people may interpret from this that they were punished for some reason. We should have learnt already from the Holocaust that there are evil people in the world and that is why bad things happen to good people. The Holzbergs were good people and happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong… Read more »

    Learning from a 3 year old...

    When the “dust settles” NOTHING changes. If not today to bring goodness to another, then when? If not today to help another , then when? We MUST help one another, keep our eyes and ears open and vow to do DAILY good deeds. The minute we decide to do nothing to change such terrorism, IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN. Hasn’t history taught us that? My 3 year old grandson is learning about Mitzvoh and has a Mitzvoh Tree in his Hebrew School Class. Every week with much joy, he is very proud to bring a list of his weekly Mitzvoh’s. I… Read more »

    Missing the point

    I have been horrified to read that people actually think that the Holtzbergs did ANYTHING to bring this upon themselves. G-d promises his people protection, yes–but maybe our way of thinking and HIS way of thinking aren’t exactly the same. Hmm, aren’t His ways above ours? His thoughts greater than ours? His purposes beyond our understanding? Perhaps the Holtzbergs were where they were because that’s where He intended them to be. Perhaps they were there for such a time as this–perhaps this situation will bring more protection for many that “business as usual” would have avoided. Perhaps Moishe would have… Read more »
