Your article brings me back 30 years as well.
I was over 30, but the feelings that you write about, are exactly mine that fateful Sunday.

I saw pictures of my self in the newspapers.
I was in a state of shock.
I was to scared to be at the levaya. It was too much to beer. I stayed in 770 trying to get the words of tihilim out. Even the tears, couldn’t come out either.

Thank you c o l.
Thank you Hashem for everyday.

Beautiful!

I remember people climbing over to get in. I also remember as if it was today, one man (not sure if it Was R’ Jacobson or R’ Butman) got up & shouted 3x in Yiddish רבי שטייט אויף &… Read more »
