Just 5 years ago I experienced a tragedy right before Purim that changed my life forever. From my experience: When Hashem gives someone a big test, the kind of test that anyone would agree is a “test”…it becomes a time when Hashem makes it possible to have a very high level of simcha. Since the test is beyond understanding and so hard to deal with, it becomes “easy” to throw your hands up and say “Hashem I need your help, big time!” This is when, at least for me, I was able to find simcha, and as a result Hashem… Read more »

May the bereaved family of Rashi Minkowicz bear their mourning through the recollections of their precious memories. As the mother of 8 children myself, such a loss for her husband and children is immeasurable. Her legacy will help them in regaining their recovery.

May Hashem give the entire family the strength to overcome this tragedy.

I feel honored, and privileged to have know Rashi personally.
One amazing thing, amongst the many amazing things about Rashi… She made every person she knew, feel like they were the only one that mattered.
She housed many girls every summer, yet she made each one feel, like they were the only one.
There needs to be more people like Rashi in this word.
She helped me, in ways she didn’t even know.

Truly an earth shattering passing. Our family lived in the wonderful Alpharetta community for almost 9 years. Those years in the presence of the amazing Minkowicz family are what makes the dedicated Chabad family we are today. I will always remember Rashi as a woman of action and dedication. She always used to say “If your hungry, eat. If you’re thirsty, drink, but don’t go around complaining.” She was truly the driving force of this wonderful community. Being around her was always and uplifting experience. Her dedication to the community was remarkable, and her lessons and memory will always be… Read more »

A loss like this stands on its own. Young person, mother, wife, community leader, special soul… The world loses. Must mourn. But to connect dots from this to another tragedy is wrong on many counts: 1. minimizes this loss 2. minimizes whichever loss to which one chooses to draw a connecting line. 3. one should draw lines between dots of good/happy things to create patterns and leave the unhappy/tragic dots to stand on their own and be addressed individually.

Four years ago I had the merit of being a counselor by Rashi and Hirshy’s succesful camp. Being that I was in 11th grade the rule was that we had to stay at the Shluchim’s house. We arrived late Thursday night and there were over 3 huge pans of cookies n rugelach waiting for us, I think the hc’s baked them but the idea was not 1 of their own. I personally do not like staying at people’s homes for an extended period of time, but this home was different, very very different. This home was warm, welcoming, relaxed, filled… Read more »

As a close friend of Rashi through elementary, high school, seminary, and beyond, I can say that Rashi was truly larger than life. Rashi had a special spark and charm that endeared her to all. With her kindneess, warmth, and spunk, she was literally the life and energy of our class. Rashi was intelligent and wise beyond her years.
Rashi carried her responsibilities as mother and shlucha with a most positive attitude that was so inspiring.
The pain is deep. Very deep.

Three in eight days?! The Eibershter is telling us something. Each of us must look inside himself or herself and see what we can improve, and then act on it.
