    It’s so important to record our early years for our children, grandchildren and future generations. Do it now, while you still have the energy, and haven’t forgotten many details.

    The linked story is a must-read.

    Take the time to download the story and read it, to learn what a real chossid or chassidiste is. We today have no problems! Pay particular attention to the care taken with the children’s chinuch, this was priority #1 for the father.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart to the family members who made this document available, may the Aibershter comfort you among the mourners of Zion and Yerushalayim.

    Very incredible story

    Mrs Raskin’s father Avraham Yeshaya Shapiro was also known as Avrohom Yeshaya Karalevitch. Several years ago there was printed in Beis Moshiach a picture of the ksav hiskashrus written to the Frierdiker Rebbe after the histalkus of the Rebbe Rashab. One of those (aprox 15) who signed was Avraham Yeshaya Karalevitch, Riva’s ע”ה father.

    Unbelievable!

    Shayay Shapiro was my great uncle. Most of the names mentioned are from my family. . Over the years we heard different stories about him and his mehus. But we never heard so many details. I will make sure my children read this as well.
