Everyone remembers where they were when they heard the news. It was a simcha felt by all of Klal Yisroel.
On Monday evening, zos Chanukah, the family of Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin gathered with Rabbonim, activists, and fellow Jews, to relive those precious moments at a special event of chizuk and simcha.
“This miracle wasn’t just a personal yeshuah. It was a reminder to Klal Yisroel about the power of emunah and bitachon,” Sholom Mordechai’s son, Getzel Rubashkin, says. “Ever since his release, gedolim and Jewish leaders around the world have been encouraging my father to dedicate himself to spreading the message of emunah and bitachon, and that is what he has done. ‘Alef, Bais, Gimmel’ has become a household phrase. This event is a moment to loudly and clearly thank Hashem and reaffirm that we got the message – emunah and bitachon will bring geulah.”
The program featured divrei chizuk and personal reflections from Reb Sholom Mordechai mixed with song and dance led by singer Benny Freidman, musicians Avremi G. and Yossi Cohen, and the Shira choir.
Hundreds of women gathered in a hall next door and were addressed by Mrs. Leah Rubashkin.
The evening ended with participants up on their feet, uniting in joyous dancing.
